With the sand beneath your feet, the sun shining on your perfectly made up hair, you walk down the makeshift aisle feeling like the princess of your dreams…
Until a gush of wind comes along, whooshing your gossamer veil over your head and caking your teeth with the same sand you were reveling in a few seconds ago!
It’s okay, you can stop cringing now. Although this is an over exaggeration of the worst of beach weddings, it doesn’t really take much for the beach-y elements to ruin your illusion of the perfect day.
So in order to stop such a disaster from happening, we give you some style tips to prevent the beach elements from ruining your beach wedding!
Beach weddings and poufy dresses do not mix. For such an occasion, you need a dress that is light and airy, but not so much that a gush of wind would reveal your nether regions. Light layers and strapless should be your choice so that you can move without fumbling or fussing over your dress.
You can choose from a number of wedding dress types from the variety of bridal party dresses for beach weddings available at
Perfect Bridal. Just keep your comfort as well as style in mind when you choose a dress.
Lastly, when looking for shoes, go for flats; heels sink into the sand.
Unless you want a grumpy groom, opt for relaxed attire rather than the black tux. Again, think light and airy and keep the colors in earth or neutral tones. Let your groom wear a suit that feels comfortable during the ceremony and reception. This way, they won’t have to worry about getting sand all over them, and will be relaxed enough to actually enjoy the proceedings.
After all, it’s his special day too!
Choosing a hairstyle is a delicate matter for a beach wedding. Now, the best option would be lose waves that would frame your face. But if this option is too simple for you, you can either add a floral headband or go for an up do.
If you have long hair, a loose braid can look pretty as well, but only if you touch it up with some light hairspray to keep the hair in the knots. Just remember to freshen up your hair 5-10 minutes before the ceremony starts. This will help you maintain your hairstyle all day.
If your wedding is taking place during the day, keep some blotting tissues near you so that you can wipe off perspiration and oil. Also remember to blend sunscreen all over your skin so that you don’t end up getting a white reflection.
Keep your makeup light and natural. Heavy makeup can make your skin extra-shiny, not to mention that too humid weather can end up melting it off your face.
With all these details, we hope you’re able to have a stress free beach wedding!
