Are wedding was suppose to be in Ballroom inside and outside wedding, now he wants to change it to the beach and he wants the guys to wear Hawaiian Shirts and shorts .Do you think my dress and accessories are to much for a laid back wedding .

hhhmmm maybe a bit elegant formal for a “casual beach” wedding – but hey its your day and your dress is beautiful so who cares!

I’m in the school of the bride can wear whatever she want and there’s no such thing as too fancy!

Walking through sand in those shoes could be a problem.

I think the dress is fine for a beach but u might rethink those particular heels. Other than that, ur good!

The last beach wedding I went to, the brides dress was not at all laid back. And plus yours is “Mermaid” so it fits!!! lol Maybe you should be barefoot though, because I’m sure walking in heels in the sand could cause some problems!

I would get a pair of wedges for the ceremony and switch to heels for the indoor part of the deay
Maybe you can convince him to go with tan suits instead of the Hawaiian shirts.

I LOVE blingy beach weddings! They look so high-class but laid back!

Wow, your acessories and dress are gorgeous! I think it’s definitely possible to pull off a blingy beach wedding! Although, I do agree with PPs that the shoes would be difficult to walk in. Will the reception be taking place on the beach as well?

@lovelypinky40: I. love. your. dress. LOVE. I have a lace fit-and-flare dress with a semi-cathedral train. We initially were going to have a very formal wedding with 500 guests in Philly but after all the stress, FI and I decided to do a DW in Thailand!!!!! 🙂 I’m NOT changing a single thing about my wedding day look. I’ve a gorgeous cathedral length veil that I’m still wearing and pretty much everything about my look screams formal but I don’t care…I’m only getting married once, so I’m going to live my fairytale….hahahaha. FI and I also decided that we liked a more formal beach wedding look, so our BMs will be wearing long chiffon dresses and our GM will be wearing linen shirts and pants…possibly linen suits, too. Let me know if you have any questions! 🙂

Agree that the dress and most of the accessories are just fine.
It is your day and you should wear what makes you feel great.
But, like PPs mentioned the shoes may be impractical, also the super long cathedral vale might be a huge hassle. If it catches the wind you could be fighting it through the whole ceremony.Just a thought though.

Um..wow. I can see why you’re stressed!
I love everything you bought, but I am pretty sure that dress will not go with a Hawaiian shirt if you’re including the groom with “the guys”. What if you compromised, and the groomsmen wore Hawaiian shirts and the groom wore a linen suit? It’s still plenty beachy, and would look just fine next to your gorgeous dress.
I think as long as the beach wedding decor is more on the formal side (orchids for example) your blingy decor will work great.
