For the sun-kissed bride, the perfect beach ready dress can be hard to find. Getting married by the ocean? You might want to consider a dress that is light-weight and that breathes. Look for fabrics like cotton and jersey, after all, nothing is worse than feeling overheated on your wedding day (and you’ll avoid looking shiny and sweaty).
In our experience, simple styles stand out against nature’s gorgeous backdrop. Choosing a beach wedding dress that’s easy to move around in and lift (i.e., without layers upon layers of taffeta), will make it possible to take a walk along the shore. With the warm sand between your toes, your wedding will feel like a vacation.
This season, we’re loving lace! Not just for doilies anymore – lace is actually ideal for summer wedding dresses. We find it incredibly romantic, and just a little bit sexy with it’s peek-a-boo attitude.
For the elegant, summer bride, try on a dress with a low back. You can have the best of both worlds: classic & traditional in the front, and edgy in the back. It’s the perfect combination.
Dainty details make a big impact on a simple dress. Buttons running up the back or beaded trim, for example, can add a whimsical, vintage-inspired touch.
