Wondering about the best wedding dress for a beach wedding? I have always loved the idea of a beach wedding. I loved it so much that when Marty and I got married, we got married on the beach at a lake near our home. There is nothing more romantic than an outdoor wedding.  I love the beautiful breeze, the blue sky and the waves lapping against the sand.  It just made our day even more special.

If you have a train or your wedding gown touches the sand, you may have some damage to the hem.  For those that are concerned about that, choose a beach wedding gown that is ankle length or tea length. If it’s not a concern, go ahead and choose a dress with a long train.

What do you wear to a summer beach wedding?

I’m partial to the mermaid style of wedding dress. If you’re not familiar with it. It hugs your hips and thighs and then flares out closer to the knees.  A mermaid style wedding dress would work perfectly in a beach wedding especially if you carry on the mermaid or beach theme with your decor.

Of course, not everyone has the figure for a mermaid style dress.  If that concerns you, you can certainly opt for an A-line or column dress which hides a few more imperfections than a mermaid style dress.
