Beach Wedding Dresses

Recommended Posts

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! :-)

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.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
