Wedding on the Beach | Destination Wedding Dresses

Use the occasion of your upcoming ceremony to get back to your favorite vacation destination. In other words, consider getting married in one of these awesome beach wedding dresses. These breezy destination bridal gowns are just the thing for a romantic oceanside nuptials.

Why a beach wedding? Maybe this is your second go-around and you do not personally need the pomp and circumstance that is expected with your first ceremony. Maybe you once shared a romantic getaway there with your current fiancé, and now the two of you have returned to say your vows. You and your husband-to-be, barefoot in the sand with the sun your eyes. Small waves lapping the shore. A wispy white gown, blowing in the wind paired with beachy natural hair. The fragrance of the sea, a flower in your hair, and a small bouquet.

Light, airy and windswept, a beach ceremony does not require a big, billowy, ballgown dress with loads of fabric, crystals and a cathedral train. Go simple and ethereal in a look that will not compete with your beautiful surroundings. For a beach, or outdoor wedding, you can use a standard strapless A-line silhouette with a modest chapel, or sweep train, or even an easy-to-wear slip dresses in opaque fabrics, spaghetti straps, and loose easy fits that skim the ground. Who needs a tight corset or a cathedral train when walking through sand? Soft fabrics like chiffon, charmeuse and silk are comfortable against the skin. Details like pearl beadwork incorporate elements of the ocean while lace applique accents are soft and feminine. Plunging necklines make sun-kissed skin your best accessory while halter necklines let the breeze blow against your shoulders.

Our ocean-side bridal gowns feature many styles that go beyond the shore. In fact, these carefree designs are ideal for any outdoor wedding. Play one up with some turquoise jewelry to capture the desert spirit for a ceremony at the edge of the Grand Canyon. Or go country, think rustic barn settings, mason jars, and natural elements, grass and wildflowers. These stripped down, sensual, effortless styles help you create a theme that is all your own. 

Breezy and easy, getting married at a vacation hotspot should be a no fuss event, whether it is the Bahamas, Costa Rica, Puerto Vallarta, Hawaii or Fort Lauderdale. Let this day be all about the happy couple and celebrating with friends and loved ones.
