Woylaa.com – Wedding dress is usually something really grand and luxurious, but what if you have your wedding party in a form of beach party? This trend is great and will definitely create amazing memories, but you need more casual dresses if you want the entire ceremony to be held on the open beach, especially if it is outdoor function. Although big dress is pretty, it will only hinder your movement and make you feel restricted in an outdoor party, not to mention the heat when you are on the beach.
Therefore, the perfect dress for outdoor beach wedding must be something more casual but still retain some elements that tell its differences from regular dresses. Do you want to have your special day held on the beach? Here are some ways to turn casual dresses into the most memorable dresses you will remember on your wedding day.
Casual Dresses: Light for Beach Wedding
Since outdoor wedding requires lighter dress, your wedding dress will definitely look like more casual dresses to avoid heat and discomfort from wearing heavy dresses. However, the dress should have specific embellishments or elements that make it discernible from guests’ dresses, some of whom probably come with white dresses. In addition, you must make sure your wedding dress is not too plain despite having more casual style. Unique cuts, embellishments and asymmetrical models can be great ways to put extra flair on casual wedding dresses.
Here are some samples of interesting, beautiful and elegant casual dresses perfect for beach wedding:
- Calf length dress with spaghetti strap and camisole top style. This dress is comfortable, slightly sexy but still elegant thanks to the flowing skirt, and it has the perfect length to combine practicality and elegance. This is also very flexible dress and you can pair it with simple jewelry, simple tiara, and a pair of cute strapped shoes.
- Prom style knee length dress with strapless top and faux wrap in the middle. Without too many embellishments unless the belt in the middle, this dress is flirty, feminine and light at the same time. Perfect if you have beach wedding during the hottest season.
- This super casual dress with asymmetrical cut and sheer, flowing skirt gives feminine and slight boho chic look, perfect for casual wedding party with close friends and families as the attendants, which is also the popular private wedding style preferred by practical urban couples. Add flower wrath or even headband to give more hippie look.
- This knee length tube dress is great for both wedding party and regular party (the only differences are on the event and accessories). The lacey top and layer accents are enough embellishments to make this dress very elegant and casual at the same time.
And the most important thing of all: these casual dresses are practical, will not bother you with heat, and you can also re-use them as regular party dress or for formal dinner, perhaps with some adjustments. Therefore, you will not get stuck with big and expensive wedding dress that you only wear once. Pair them with amazing accessories and you will immediately shine, with discernible look among your guests.
Accessories for Casual Wedding Dresses
To tell the differences between regular casual dresses and casual wedding dresses, you can pay attention to the accessories. For example, since beach wedding is normally conducted in spring or summer, you can wear floral accessories to show summer look. However, instead of something too intricate or luxurious, you pick something that look simpler to match the casual air of your dress. For example, instead of tiara, you can make a slightly messy bun with your hair, before adding big floral hairpins or floral headband.
What if you still want to wear tiara for your special day? No problem! Just make sure the tiara and veil set does not outweigh the overall casual look and create mismatching. For example, instead of complicated tiara with long veil, you can opt for simpler tiara with short veil that will look perfect for casual dress. Alternatively, you can wear flower wreath on your head without veil to create more natural, goddess-like look even in casual dresses. Hairnet is another great accessory idea for casual wedding dress; hairnet is feminine and gives exotic look, but it is also light and will not make you feel too burdened. Hairnet can be paired with beautiful hairclips, and you can wear it with hair in bun or let loose.
Other great accessories to pair with casual wedding dress are strapped shoes that show your ankle and toes, especially if you wear knee length dress. However, shoes with shorter heels or even flats are also great for these casual dresses. Whatever heels and shoe types you wear, make sure they have open toe style since they are more suitable for casual day at the beach. As for the jewelry, keep it simple and light such as earrings and thin necklace made of silver.
Besides flowers, starfish is another nice accessory element to be incorporated to beach wedding dress. Starfish is beautiful, has flower-like shape, and definitely creates really beach-related look. Seashells are also beautiful as accessory elements. These shapes can be incorporated in hair pieces, belts, sandals, jewelry items, hair pins and many more.
