Beach wedding dresses perfect for coastal celebrations

We're here to help you with how to choose the best beach wedding dress, from boho beach wedding dresses to lace and chiffon beach-beautiful gowns

Whether you’re getting married at a coastal wedding venue in the UK or jetting off to sunnier climes, finding a beach wedding dress that is suitable to wear on the sand can be a tricky task.

When you’re getting married on the beach, there’s more to take into consideration than at an inland wedding –the sea breeze, for one! Floaty dresses the waft in the wind are a gorgeous choice, whereas heavy fabric dresses will feel at odds with the laidback location.

A short wedding dress is a lovely option; it will keep you cool and give a relaxed bridal vibe, as well as showing off your carefully chosen beach wedding shoes.

Boho wedding dresses look just as beautiful at beachside weddings as they do at woodland weddings, especially when worn with long loose hairstyles.

If you’ve always imagined yourself in a classic lace wedding dress, opt for a gown with touches of lace embellishment on the straps or a lace overlay on the skirt rather than heavy lace that could mean you overheat under the beaming sun.

Look for lightweight silk wedding dresses with draping fabrics that feel effortless, and avoid overly long trains that would trail through the sand and end up with you bringing half the beach back to your reception with you.
