Strapless looks very summery, great for a beach wedding!

When I think of beach wedding dresses, I generally think of something light, flowy, and casual, and yours is more on the formal side. That being said, if you love it, wear it. People aren’t going to be thinking “wtf, her dress is so beach-inappropriate” at your ceremony, lol.

I think you’ll get alot of sand on the bottom of your dress, however, if you love it, then wear it. It’s a very pretty dress

xavion :  I think it’s fine for a beach wedding. I actually think ruffles look really good on the beach, as they sort of look like waves.

This bride’s wearing something a bit similar and it looks great:

The only issue I can potentially see is if the dress is too hot and heavy to wear. That would be a deal breaker for me as I hate being hot.

It’s a lovely dress but looks more formal than beachy-y….but it’s gorgeous & you can totally rock this on the beach. I’d recommend wearing your hair down and loose instead of up, perhaps with flowers in your hair instead of a veil. And sandals or bare feet instead of heels.

I wore something that was a similar shape (maggie sottero cheyenne) and we got married on the beach in Jamiaca. I think it will look great!

It looks fine but I’d be worried about getting too warm. Maybe take it to a taylor and have her subtly add little peekaboos to help stay cool?

xavion :  You are fine.  I live in a beach city and even when I was trying on dresses, the consultant told me that they have brides that wear all different styles for their beach weddings.  A newer friend of mine did a ruffled ball-gown for hers and she looked amazing (in her pics).

I think it’ll be lovely. We’re getting married on the beach too and I keep thinking “would that dress look daft?”…in a way, no wedding dress is “beach appropriate” so I think that means anything goes 😉

We had a private ceremony on the beach in Jamaica and my advice is to get something that is VERY light. We were sweating like crazy through the whole thing. I love that dress, but it doesn’t look very comfortable to be sweating in!

I wore this:

All that matters is that you love the dress, honestly. Any dress can be “beach-appropriate”, just wear what you love and be confident!

I think your dress will be fine at the beach. I had a beach wedding and wore a formal lace and tulle gown. If anything just make sure your Fiance dresses to match you- more formal rather than shorts. It’s the bride and groom who set the tone after all. FWIW, I love the contrast of formal wedding gowns against a beach backdrop. Makes for great photos!
