We set our price at under $100 (some styles are under $50!), because we know how it all adds up.

Celebrating one's nuptials by the sea provides ample opportunity to choose from an array of effortlessly chic bridal gowns. Luckily, there are nearly as many alternatives to the traditional ball gown as there are grains of sands on the beach. More casual beach wedding dresses make use of sheer panels, openwork lace and ruffles. Simple beach wedding dresses include those with midi lengths that feel easygoing, yet sophisticated. Boho wedding dresses are another choice: romantic and dreamy like a tropical island. Meanwhile, short beach wedding dresses feel cheerily free-spirited while providing wedding-friendly frills.
Look for lightweight materials for your beachfront or destination wedding dress. Silk, cotton blends, crochet, chiffon and lace make for breezy beach dresses. While not explicitly bridal, many white or ivory cocktail dresses will work wonders in a beach wedding, plus they can be worn afterward on the honeymoon. Below, check out 15 alternatives to the heavily embellished wedding gown that instead are easy, breezy and downright gorgeous. Post-wedding, you can relax poolside, confident you were a thoroughly beachy bride.
With Cinderella's dainty slipper in their collective memories, some brides seldom think about comfortable shoes on the big day. But there's no wisdom in wearing wobbly stilettos to an event at which you might actually want to dance. Modern brides are opting for practical wedding shoes that can be worn more than once, as opposed to extremely high-heeled shoes that leave their tootsies blistered on the honeymoon. Also, we get it: Some very tall brides prefer to seek out more sensible heels, including flats, wedges and kitten heels that may also boast cushioned footbeds and supportive straps. So if you, too, want to dance the night away at your wedding, check out this list of swoon-worthy wedding flats that are just as ravishing as 4-inch heels (and much more practical). These styles from ASOS, Nordstrom, David's Bridal and more will take you from the ceremony to the after party in blissful comfort.
