For all those who did, or will, get married on the beach... how long was your dress? The dress I bought has a small train and I am debating whether to cut it off and have my dress all floor length, or to keep it and have it bustled or a hoop to hold it. Opinions/suggestions?

I have purchased a pair of wedge shoes to wear walking down the aisle on the beach to help with the length of my dress not drag.  I do have a small train behind me that will 'drag' on the beach/sand, but oh well :)

 

I would see a seamstress and ask for their recommendations.

I am getting married on the beach and my dress is floor length with a WEE bit dragging at the back. Wouldn't call it a train, but it will drag a bit. My seamstress said it looked really pretty like that, and I agree. I'll be barefoot for the ceremony. But I also have flip flops for walking around, not that they'll do much for the dragging. It's not a bad fabric to wash, so it shouldn't be a problem to clean afterward.

Thanks for the tips... it's pretty so I really don't want to chop it off but wasn't sure how it'd manage in the sand. Glad to know others have a little dragging behind them as well! I'll ask the seamstress at my fitting but I think I'm going to keep it :)

I think the type of material is very important for the train.  Organza would be best - it doesn't pick up sand as much, and if it does get wet and sandy, you can just brush it off once it dries.  Something like satin would be a pain in the butt - think how much water it would soak up, and the sand would really stick.  I'm not sure what to think of lace, I guess it would depend.  Something to think about.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
