From everything I've seen, there are no hard and fast rules for destination weddings, and you can wear just about whatever you want!! Obviously for temperature concerns, you wouldn't want a great big multi layer full on satin ball gown (then again maybe someone would!! lol)  but you get my drift. You want to be comfortable first of all, and yes look exactly like you dreamed so whatever works for you..... who cares what others think. If you take the time to look through photos on this site you'll see that the dresses run the full gamut of what's out there. So wear what you love and love what you wear!! The choice is completely yours!!!

 

Good luck!!

I'm strongly considering not wearing a white dress, providing I can find something I like. People think I am NUTS and my friends try to talk me out of it! But there are plenty of other colors that are more flattering on me than white, and not getting a "wedding" dress gives me more style options. I'd love to find a turquoise dress that matches the color of the ocean (with white flowers) but haven't found anything quite yet.

 

Personally - I love breaking the rules. I feels very liberating and like the day will truly be OUR day.

@beckys98 I love that idea! I think you should definitely follow your vision for your dress. Sounds beautiful with the ocean, sand and surroundings :)

I thought I would need to wear something "beach appropriate" too, but as I started dressing shopping nothing seemed to work.Turns out more of a ball gown style works better with my body type so that's what I think I'll be getting. I thought that might be too hot but it all depends on the fabric you're getting. Apparently organza fabric is good because it's light and breathes better. I'm thinking about getting the dress in the link below. I tried it on and felt good in it. I also read from someone else on this site (can't remember who), but you're going to be hot regardless of what you wear so you might as well get something you love.

Gorgeous dresses, ladies! I feel like most of the wedding pictures I've seen (and that is a lot as I'm currently trying to decide on a photographer) the brides are wearing pretty formal dresses and it looks great. Go with your gut!

What I'm considering in terms of dress styles are all in champagne or pink. Definitely want something with colour!!

    I tried on one destination style dress, but it was just to keep my sister happy that I tried at least one on. I had briefly considered wearing just a short cream dress but then decided to go for my dream dress  which is tea length with a full skirt. I LOVE my poofy dress, I just couldn't have a chiffony one.
