Beach Wedding Dress Tips:

  • Choose a dress that you will feel comfortable and cool in
  • Take into account the heat of your destination and whether it will be windy
  • Wear a good waterproof mascara in case of any spray from the sea!
  • Think practically when it comes to your choice of footwear (if you choose to wear any) - a pair of low or flat strappy sandals with some pretty embellishment would work well with a beach wedding dress
