Our wedding is in Scotland, on the coast, our outdoor photos will be taking on a beach. With it being Scotland it’s really unpredictable and the weather could be wet, aka wet sand.
I am just trying to think of the practicality of getting our photos took on the beach if it is wet, do I change my shoes, will my dress get dirty? Any advice or experiences would be appreciated!

I got married on the beach in Tofino, BC, Canada which is notorious for unpredictable weather. It rained the morning of the wedding, was still a bit misty during the actual ceremony and photos.
– Your dress will get dirty… Even if it isn’t raining. I didn’t have much of a train and still got dirty
– I wore sandals. Not super fancy ones, not heels, was also barefoot part of the time
– Style your hair in a way that can handle the mist, you’ll likely need to touch up a bit
– Wear make-up that can handle the mist
– Love every minute of it. The beach was SUCH an amazing place to get married and have photos done. Wouldn’t change it for the world!
I’ve included some photos below, so you can see how the dress looked and my shoes

Thank you! That was very helpful! My dress is silk mikado I am hoping I will be able to rub off the sand as much as possible! I did NOT think abour hair and makeup so greatly appreciated!!

Yeah, i’m not a big hair/makeup person so really didn’t care that it got messed up or my hair got a bit wilder, but some people really care about that sort of thing. My dress, once the sand dried most of it shook off. I would be a bit nervous about silk though, I have a silk dress that got water stains incredibly easily. So I would be worried about the salt water

Some of my favorite wedding photos are this bride in her wellies:

oh crap, honestly I picked the one but I keep coming under so many things regarding the material, will it be too tight, uncomfortable, wrinkle, and now, will it get water damage ahh! I’ll just have to hold it up for my beach photos!

I never thought wellies could look so cute.

No matter where you go or what you do for photos, the bottom of your dress is gonna be nasty by the end of the night lol
That’s been my experience every time I’ve been in a wedding party or close to the bride!

Scottish coast is such a good choice.. whereabouts?
We got married by a lake in northern England. It was dampish for most of the day, some drizzle, and then cleared up in the afternoon. I just wore high heels and then changed into a pair of boots when we spent more time outside (I was going to get wellies but ran out of time). My dress had a small train and it didn’t get too ruined but I was quite conscious about picking it up when I was walking to avoid that.
Make sure your hair won’t look weird if it gets really windy! A complicated updo might not work.
