    I’m in a similar quandry with the dresses I heart too thus far.  My idea is to get one helluva bustle going on that looks great for your beachy reception too..maybe marry in the gazebo?

    I’m marrying in a church, but after that, we’re going by boat to our reception site and I have to run down a fairly nice sized pier and then across a hundred feet or so of white sand to get inside the venue for the reception.

    Call me crazy, but I don’t think any wedding dress is ever too much for the venue! I’ve seen pictures of beautiful gowns worn skydiving, underwater, near a waterfall … and all make for really beautiful pictures! The only thing that matters is if you feel comfortable wearing all that fabric in the sand. I personally think that a formal gown on the beach or in the middle of a forest, is breathtakingly beautiful! Something about it just looks magical because it doesn’t completely fit in.

    I say GO FOR THAT DRESS.  It’s beautiful and I think it could bustle well.

    I love the two toned colors which I think would go for a beach wedding, plus if you love it, who cares?  I think the dress is gorgeous.

    I am also having a beach wedding.  Figure out where you are going to have the ceremony before you go shop for dresses.  We were going back and forth between an “on the beach” ceremony and at the country club overlooking the beach.  We ended up choosing the country club view.  I went looking at dresses before we had made our decision on exact ceremony local and I was totally confused as to what I wanted.  Find a dress that you are not sweating in the store.  Believe me some of them will having you sweating in 2seconds in an air conditioned store.  Imagine what it would be like outside.

    If it is on the beach/sand I wanted a more flowy/light fabric.

    If it is overlooking the beach I could get away with a more elaborate dress.

    The 1st dress is the one I ordered (excuse the fact that it is signifcantly too small for me) and the 2nd dress is the one I liked if I was in the sand.
