What To Wear To A Beach Wedding

A beach wedding is a beautiful, romantic event. The bride and groom exchange vows with the sound of the waves crashing in the background and the sand between their toes. But as a guest, what do you wear to a beach wedding? If you want to look chic and stylish, follow these simple tips.

Dress for the Season

Beach weddings usually take place in the summer when the weather is warm. However, depending on where you live, the temperature can vary greatly. If you’re attending a beach wedding in Brisbane, for example, it will likely be much hotter than if you’re attending one in Tasmania. 

A general beach wedding dressing tip is to always err on the side of caution and dress for warmer weather than cooler weather. That way, if it ends up being cooler than anticipated, you can always add a jacket or scarf. But if it’s unexpectedly hot, you will be stuck sweating in your long-sleeved dress!

Choose Lightweight Fabrics

One of the best tips on how to dress for a beach wedding is to stick to light and airy fabrics such as linen, organza, silk, chiffon, and cotton. These fabrics will help keep you cool and won’t weigh you down in the heat. Avoid heavier fabrics such as tweed or wool—you don’t want to be uncomfortable. Instead, opt for fabrics that will flow nicely in the breeze.

Weddings have many types of dress codes so here is what to wear to a wedding on a beach for any event you’re attending. For beach casual, try a simple sundress with minimal jewellery and strappy sandals. For a beach formal wedding, try a long rayon or chiffon gown. If it’s beach chic, go for a long flowing maxi dress or jumpsuit with a large sunhat. 

For all beach wedding dress codes, do not wear white. You don’t want to be the guest who upstages the bride.
