When it comes to weddings on the sand or on the coast, wind will always be a factor. A flowing skirt in layers of chiffon creates romantic movement the moment the wind picks up. Echo the romance of the sea with a gown adorned in intricate patterns of seed pearls, soft lace that resembles windblown foam, or a hint of sparkle to mimic the glitter of mermaid scales.
To capture an ethereal style, longer or weighted veils will create a gorgeous silhouette without providing too much of a distraction. Don’t fret too much about the perfect hairstyle – a messy chignon or loose waves will feel gorgeously beach appropriate! Accessorize with on-point pieces: shells or sea stars woven through a long braid, a sea glass circlet, or nautical rope detailing for a belt or bracelet. Bare feet are always the most fun for a beach setting, but wedge heels manage to be practical and elegant at the same time!
