Affordable elegance in breezy beach bridesmaid dresses
The long, dreary, cold winter is truly behinds us. Warm sun, fresh air, burst of colours is just in the backyard. It is time to plan for all the outdoor activities you have ever wanted like- birthday parties, graduation parties, homecoming, and even weddings! Spring is the time for garden weddings while summer is even better. Beach weddings are today very popular and can be memorable when planned and executed properly. What can be more romantic than the soft sound of rolling waves as you take your vows, with warm sand and crisp air and nature in all its purity around you?
While a beach wedding can be truly unique, some amount of planning is essential to avoid disasters. Next to the bride’s dress, one of the biggest issues for the event will be suitable beach bridesmaid dresses. That is because it would be difficult to walk in full formal dress on a sandy beach. This is why beach weddings generally are slightly less glamorous than normal weddings at the church. This is not to say that ladies can’t dress the part. Just keeping a few points in mind will help them enjoy the beach and be glamorous at the same time.
Since a beach is not exactly like solid flooring, it is a good idea to avoid floor length gowns. If not, bridesmaids might end up dragging their dress in sand and water, resulting in dirty edges. Beach bridesmaid dresses should be at matching hem length with the bride’s wedding dress. The dresses can be either with sleeves or strapless but once again they should match with the bride’s dress. However, if the dress is strapless, keeping a matching wrap over the dress is always useful as the day could be windy or cloudy. Finally, check the footwear. It is hard enough to walk on the sandy beach, – high heeled shoes can make it disastrous. Opt for strappy sandals with very short heels that match the dress. Very stylish flip flops with embellishments are an option too although for more casual weddings.
You can never go wrong with the blue ruffle summer dress from the eDressMe private collection.

White colour can be used as a theme for beach wedding and bridesmaids can wear white too, if the bride wishes. It is possible to decorate dresses in a theme that works well with the beach background. Pearls or shells can be used as accents in the hair, jewellery, shoes or dress. Also, flowers can be in muted shades of the beach or in bright rich shades of the ocean. Try a few long stemmed white roses or lilies tied with a blue stain ribbon. Flowers are the perfect complement to a beach wedding. The overall look is important. So, be careful about the footwear. Opt for simple low heeled white or silver or ivory shades of strappy sandals or even go barefoot. The seamed tank white dress from Luna Luz is a fabulous choice for a beach wedding.
