I live in Hawaii and if you’re here, you’ll probably see all the Japanese weddings that come over here go all out princess ballgown. Literally, I can’t tell you how many gorgeous, full on snowball puff cloud chaos dresses traipse through the beaches. The guys are usually in top hats and tails.

You’ll be just fine.

I think it’s a little on the structured side for a beach wedding, but looks fabulous on you! I’m wearing a full on lace a line gown with a sweep train in my backyard, so wear whatever you want! It’s like anything else, if you wear it with confidence it will look flawless.

I think it is a beautiful dress! I think you should wear whatever you want and whatever makes you feel beautiful. I am also having a beack wedding and will not be doing the typical sheath dress.

It’s a gorgeous dress. Can you walk in it? If you were stumbling due to tripping in the stand would you be able to catch yourself without ripping it?

Usually beach/destination dresses are shorter or easy to manuever in for these resons. If you feel comfortable walking in it then it shouldn’t be a problem. 🙂

@MrsD2Be:  OMG, it’s STUNNING!!!! I’m having a Destination Wedding in Thailand and I’m wearing a lace fit-and-flare (chapel train) dress and planning on wearing a cathedral length silk tulle veil. I was worried about it being too formal at first, but then thought, “Heck – this is my once-in-a-lifetime chance to be a bride, so I’m going to wear what I feel makes me look like one!” Go for it!!!!!!!

@MrsD2Be:  That dress is STUNNING on you! I am a big fan of wearing whatever dress you have your heart set on! I had a Destination Wedding in St Thomas and I guess you could say my dress wasn’t your so caled Destination Wedding wedding dress either but I loved it and in the end so glad I stuck with my guns on what exactly I wanted!

That dress is nothing short of AMAZING on you……def you should wear this for you Hawaii wedding!!

This dress looks amazing on you.  Looks like you two were made for each other, it fits you perfectly and you are absolutely glowing in it.  It’s your wedding, your the star of the day, wear what is going to make you feel as magical as the day is going to be.  As long as your comfortable in it go for it!!!  Good Luck.

I think it looks great! If it were in a different fabric, like a heavy satin, it would not be for the beach, but since there is a light airy-ness about your dress, it’s perfect!  As far as trendiness, I guess it is, who gives a sh1t 🙂
