Beach Wedding Guest Attire

Recommended Posts

People asked us so I just finished posting something about it on our website with some picture examples. I think it's confusing for a lot of guests because they've never been to a destination wedding. I wish I could just say "just make sure you look good" haha but then that doesn't help much. It's mainly the men that ask but I've had some of my girlfriends ask too.

 

I thought that was weird, one of my friends asked if there was a specific color she should wear? I didn't know people did that

I went to one destination wedding and it took me a long time to settle on a dress that I thought would be cool enough for the heat, yet "nice" enough for a wedding. My instructions were "get something you'll wear again. " Any excuse for shopping is fun though.

A lot of our guests have been asking us what the attire is for our wedding. All I told them was "semi-formal/beach formal". We just want our guests to be comfortable but still look nice. :)

I picked what everyone in my wedding party was going to wear but made sure everyone liked it and agreed upon it! Sorry but I'm no bridezilla LOL ! I gave the bridesmaids a choice between two pairs of shoes though that matched together really nicely!

 

Here is what we have:

 

Bridemaid dresses & shoes:

This is only two of my bridesmaids . I chose eggplant purple because it is classic and looks very royal on sand!

I love this topic..i admit though I am somewhat a bridezilla. I did request that all our guests wear white. Its on the sky deck, i want pictures to look nice and like a theme comes through. I dont care what people think. Its one day in my life that i can do whatever makes me and FI happy. I have been asked to post pivs of whats acceptable. I said "Beach Formal/Upscale Resort

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
