While many people dream of being married with sand between their toes, it can be difficult for guests to decide what to wear. When it comes to attire, you may be a little more relaxed, cool, and informal thanks to the "beach" factor as compared to more formal dress standards like cocktail, semi-formal, or formal. While you should still be mindful of your guests, it’s also important not to lose sight of yourself when deciding what to wear. You want to feel comfortable in your own skin and enjoy the day just as much as everyone else. Here are some general guidelines to keep in mind when choosing attire:
Beach-y, not Beachy-Hotsy: You will likely be at the beach or near it during your wedding day. This means that you should avoid wearing anything that is overly revealing or too tight (unless you want to look like a swimsuit model). This is not the time to show off your best cleavage or flaunt your abs. In fact, you should avoid wearing anything that is too tight or revealing in general. You want to look comfortable, but still feminine and stylish. Something to keep in mind is that you will likely be standing outside for the majority of the day, so it’s best to wear something light. You don’t want to be overheated and uncomfortable on your wedding day! If you are a bride who tends to get cold easily, then you should wear one or two layers of clothing. One shirt inside and one suit outside. This will help keep your body warm without making you look too bulky or heavy. It’s also important to consider the weather when choosing what to wear on your wedding day. If it’s going to be hot, then wearing shorts and a tank top might not be the best option.
Naturally, the season, the weather, and the location will all influence how you choose to dress for this Wedding Attire.
