I hope you brides will look at this and answer a question I have.
After having a DW, what type of dress do you suggest? Do you think it's alright to wear "traditional" wedding dress or do you suggest a more informal, lighter one?
In terms of the dress, I sometimes wonder why I didn't go for something more "beachy" or "sexy" or "slinky/lacey". I guess I went for my dress cuz I loved it when I found it. It was traditional but when I put it on I knew that I had finally found the perfect one. I never let the fact that I was getting married on the beach totally affect the style of dress I wanted.
So to answer your question, its perfectly fine to go with something traditional if thats what you want & thats what you like. Don't avoid the "traditional" dress just because you think you can't be traditional on a beach! KWIM?
My only suggestion would be to definitely try on all types/styles of dresses, especially a type that you wouldn't normally consider cuz you never really know how its going to look until you actually try it on.
You could always go traditional for the ceremony & go informal/light for the reception...that is if 2 dresses are in your budget! Hope I helped you.
