Every beach wedding delivers the basics: salt air, gorgeous views, crashing waves and unmatched tranquility. Beyond those elements, what more do you need? Decor that is fit for a beach bride, that's what! Seaside motifs, whether subtle or over-the-top, can heighten an already breathtaking scene. Among the complementary imagery and materials for a beach wedding are ocean-derived items such as sea glass, starfish, sand dollars, coral fans and clam shells. Some brides can choose to go a little more nautical by incorporating sailor knots, rugged rope, fishing floats and anchors. Placing some palm leaves in strategic locations will up the tropical isle vibe. Check out a treasure trove of beautiful items from Etsy, Michaels, Walmart and more that will enrich your waterfront wedding.
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.
