I say if you love it…go for it!!! I have a similar story..we were planning on having a formal reception at a hotel, but then at the last minute decided to have our ceremony in Puerto Rico. Therefore, my dress was purchased knowing my reception hall. I know it’s not the dress you envision for a ceremony on the beach, but I love it and absolutely will not trade it for a “beach” dress. If you love your dress, don’t second guess yourself…and I think it would be gorgeous especially for an evening ceremony!


Here’s my dress for my beach ceremony:

Gorgeous dresses!

I’m not sure how it’s going to work, but I’m in the same boat.  I knew I was going to have an evening wedding on the beach and was just sure I’d get something simple since that’s how my taste in clothing normally runs.  Naturally I ended up with this satin/organza/beaded/embroidered confection from Casablanca.  Hopefully you can get an idea of what the back looks like.  Here’s a link if you’re really interested:  http://www.casablancabridal.com/collections/view/7/138

At first I tried to deny my love for this dress because it is so impractical for my ceremony, but finally I said screw it.  I adored it and this is the only time I’m going be able to wear anything like it, so I got what I wanted!

Also, the girl that does my hair got married on a beach and had the same dress issue.  She said she just partied like crazy in it anyway and loved every second, even if her hem got a little torn up.
