Accessories that Matter when Dressing for a Beach Wedding

It’s not all about the dress at a beach wedding. From sand to sun to wind, the environmental factors of a seaside celebration make it necessary to have the right accessories and protection. Here are our picks for beach wedding accessories to take with you when attending a summer celebration.

Sunglasses: Avoid finding yourself squinting to see the bride walk down the aisle. Be sure to pack a pair of chic sunnies with UV protection. Choose a pair that is minimal and class so as not to distract from your look – or the bride’s!

Wedges: Don’t be the guest who leaves stiletto holes in the sand! Opt for a pair of low wedges to keep yourself sturdy when walking on the sandy beach  - we especially loved this striped pair for a bit of nautical style.

Sunhat: Keep the sun out of your eyes and off your skin with a classic sunhat – our favorite is this black and white striped hat.

Sunscreen: Select a sunblock that will protect your skin but not make you appear too white or shiny in photos if flash is used.

Sea-inspired Jewelry: For a wedding by the ocean, we say have fun! Choose jewelry with colors such as coral or turquoise to celebrate the setting.
