Whitmore Photography Shop beach wedding dresses that fit the vibe of your destination wedding. One of the great things about planning a beach wedding is that most of the decorating is done for you. The beauty of nature and the background of the ocean create a simple, romantic backdrop. Play off the natural beauty of a wedding on the beach by shopping for beach wedding dresses that are simple and accent your own natural beauty. Look for fabrics that will keep you cool and a silhouette that is flattering on you. Perfect examples of beach wedding dresses are After Six bridal gowns and the Voyage by Mori Lee collection. Go natural with other details of your wedding on the beach. Although the ocean breeze is great for ambiance, it is less great for perfectly placed curls. To avoid stress over having perfect hair, and to create a look that fits your environment, go for beach waves or a loose up-do. Then, compliment your loose romantic mane with soft natural makeup. Simple foods and decorations at the reception will carry over the beauty of your beach wedding. Take your inspiration from nature by using flowers, driftwood, and seashells in soft blues, greens, and browns. Providing fresh fruits and vegetables not only adds to the ambience, but is also healthy! Choose offbeat destination wedding locations for privacy and meaning. Photo courtesy of A. Whitmore Photography Many factors of a beach wedding are unique and romantic. Unlike a traditional indoor ceremony, you will be surrounded by the elements of nature. Embrace this theme of your wedding by looking at unique and romantic destination wedding locations, rather than popular tourist areas. This will add to the romance of your day by keeping your ceremony private, memorable, and focused on you! Did you have your wedding on the beach? Tell us about it in the comments below!
