Not all beach wedding dresses are created equal. From a Grecian getaway to an dreamy Balinese escape to a traditional Cape Cod affair, the locale dictates the dress. Here are our picks for beach wedding dresses that embody the spirit of 3 of our favorite beach wedding destinations:
Bali: For an Indonesian excursion, the gown should look as exotic as the location feels. We love our Silk Floral One Shoulder Wedding Dress for its lush floral detail that gives a touch of blossoming beauty, while still looking tailored throughout the waist and bodice. Show off the asymmetrical neckline by wearing your hair tucked into a low bun or waterfall braid with simple drop earrings. As for makeup, keep it fresh and natural with a nude lipgloss and bronzer with a hint of gold shimmer.
Santorini: A ceremony by the bright blue water of the Aegean Sea calls for a flowing, Grecian goddess-style beach wedding dress. The deep V neckline exudes endless glamour and romance, and the crossover hem makes it easy to dance the night away in a pair of low wedges. Keep your hair tied back into a milkmaid braid or let loose with long beachy waves and lightly apply a matte coral lipstick.
Cape Cod: We love the timeless tradition and gorgeous beaches of Cape Cod. Say “I do” in a floral embroidered tea length strapless dress – the perfect accompaniment to the heritage homes, charming courtyards and quaint cottages of the Cape. Play it up in classic New England beach wedding style with a simple strand of pearls and light pink lip.
