A lot of beach weddings will have some sort of guidelines in order to give you the idea about the level of formality. Besides checking the guidelines when choosing your outfit, you need to make sure that you check the weather forecast, as well. You do not want to end up on the beach when the wind is blowing, carrying the sand all over the place, wearing close to nothing because it can get chilly. Here are some of the outfits to consider.
Linen Fabrics for Switching Styles
Linen, together with cotton makes a perfect fabric combination for summer days. These fabrics allow your body to breathe which reduces sweating, while protecting your skin from the sun. Another advantage is that linen and fabric can be used to make lovely outfits. Pants, dresses, skirts – everything looks perfect in linen. Combine a nice linen dress with leather sandals and a nice straw hat. Natural materials look great together. If the situation requires a more formal attire, you can wear a linen skirt and jacket and combine it with a white blouse. Golden jewelry will make this combination look just right.
Kaftans are Fun and Causal
If the wedding is casual, you should definitely try and find a gorgeous looking kaftan and combine it with a pair of flats. If your hosts do not mind you walking barefoot on their wedding, make sure that you get a pair of those wonderful and fun barefoot sandals. They are basically chic decorations for your feet without the soles.
Summer Dresses in Classy Combinations
When picking your summer dress, make sure that you do not pick a dress that is too short. It can get really windy on the beach and you do not want to spend the rest of your time there holding your dress down. Lovely and lively floral patterns on sleeveless dresses go nicely with reasonable heels, since you will be walking on sand. Open toe shoes will work well in this case. Platform sandals are a great choice for a beach wedding, because they can be more or less formal, depending on their pattern and material.
Formal and Cocktail Weddings Require Formal Outfits
If the wedding is formal, make sure you opt for a little black dress and a nice clutch bag. You cannot go wrong with that combination. You can combine this dress with slide sandals in gold or silver tones. That will make them look classier and far more elegant, and still, they will be proper beach footwear. When choosing the heel, make sure that you choose wisely, because it will be close to impossible to walk in stilettos on the sand. It is not that often that people organize a formal wedding on a beach, since there are far more appropriate venues for this sort of wedding. Therefore, check the wedding cards for guidelines or instructions about the attire before opting for a formal look. Also, call the bride and groom and double check. You do not want to be overdressed on a beach full of people in linen and kaftans.
The level for formality of a beach wedding is pretty tricky to follow, especially when it is a formal wedding. On one hand, you need to be classy and on the other, you are on a beach. You can easily make a mistake of being overdressed or underdressed for this occasion. However, proper accessorizing can prepare you for all the possible situations. A spare pair of shoes, earrings, a bag and a different set of jewelry can change your look dramatically.
