Tis the season for destination weddings!

Spring and summer are the most popular seasons for destination weddings! Most destination weddings are held on a beach so shopping for a beach wedding dress may be different compared to a traditional wedding dress. You would want to find something casual but elegant. The beach will have hot sunny weather so you would also want to wear a breezy dress that also has an open lower area around the legs. It is good to have an open area around the legs because of the sand on the beach.

My first pick is an informal short bridal dress with a long overskirt. This dress is perfect for the beach, because it’s strapless so you will have no strap tan lines and the long overskirt is removable so you can transform the overall dress into a short mini dress.

My second pick is a cocktail taffeta v-neck wedding gown with a sash! For those who don’t have an overskirt and would like to keep the leg area as open as possible, this is the dress! It is a short dress so no sand or water will get on your dress (unless it rains) and it is the perfect beach look! It is casual but the silk sash brings the elegance to the dress.

My third and favourite pick is the strapless high-low ball gown wedding dress! I love this dress because it still has the traditional ball gown look to it, but it also has an open frontal to the dress. It’s incredibly elegant and suitable for the beach. It’s very feminine and shows off your tanned looking legs!
