The Perfect Wedding Dress For a Destination Wedding
Updated: Jan 17
If you are thinking to have a destination wedding, but you don't know where to start, we have a list of wedding dresses to suit your chosen location. Having a wedding on the beach is a completely different story than getting married in the city. And the location you have chosen will make a big difference.
Getting married on the wet beaches of Thailand is not the same as getting married on the windy beaches of the Caribbean. Either way, you’ll need a beach wedding dress that you’ll feel comfortable in, and one that will fit the laidback holiday vibe of a wedding by the sea. In any case you will want to match your wedding dress to the venue.
The first thing you have to think about is size. Transporting a big city dress by plane is not the same as transporting a vaporous one for the beach.
I am sure that you don't want to wear a hot and heavy dress in the beach. You may think that this is obvious, but I have seen very heavy dresses in the beach, and grooms wearing black tuxedos in super hot days.
So, you know that the dress has to match to the venue, and on the other hand that you have to transport it by plane, so you want it to be light.
But... What style of dress to choose?
When it comes to a ceremony by the sea, you'll want to wear a dress made of lightweight fabrics so that it can catch the wind easily, and the photo will look pretty. Or maybe you’re after the relaxed, flowy silhouettes that dance with the breeze. Tiered layers, mini trains, and patterned lace all make sense for beach weddings. You may also want to keep the train of the dress from being too ornate.
Below I present a series of dresses that will serve as inspiration:
