Is anyone else planning to wear less formal dresses for a wedding in the sand? I'm looking for dresses in cotton or linen, in tea length or shorter, and having a hard time! I can't imagine that there isn't more demand for something more beach-y! Any ideas?

I would check out department stores like Macy's. They have a ton of short white dresses that would be appropriate for a beach wedding. Some of my favorites (sorry, not in cotton/linen):
Or if you want super casual and are set on cotton:

Thanks - I've seen the Tommy Bahama dress and actually like that except for that bottom tier! I'm a stickler for natural fibers whenever possible and usually buy more formal dresses in silk, but silk just isn't practical for the beach - unless I can find a washable silk.

I like the first dress from Macy's! Very cute!
I thought about getting less formal dresses, in tea length too, since I'm getting married on the sand too; but that idea got a huge thumbs down from my fiance. But I found a beautiful dress that is a bit more formal but still fits the beachy theme. I love it and can't wait for it to come in!
You can go to Brides.com to see a gallery of different wedding dresses. Here's the link to the short wedding dress gallery:
Good luck in finding your dress!

last year I went to a beach wedding and the bride had a dress that was too formal...it did not work very well...casual is definitely the best way to go...

I'm planning on a simple casual dress. I feel in love with a convertible dress and think it will work perfectly. That way I can have a long gown during the ceremony and short during the reception. I will have my veil on all evening at the suggestion of my MIL who said she wants everyone to be able to identify the bride! :-)
Together we can conquer the world.

J Crew does have a few dresses that are less formal and fit an outdoor wedding. Good luck in your search!

Your speaking my mind!! I can't seam to find a super fun beachy dress in natural fibers (full length) that I like. All the "beach casual" dresses are made of polyester and made cheaply. Since you are looking for a shorter dress, try Lilly Pulitzer, she makes superb quality palm beach wear.
