The temperature rises as summer arrives in the west, and for couples who love the water, a casual beach wedding sets a relaxed and romantic mood for exchanging vows. This season, the short beach wedding dress takes a backseat to column dresses with flowing fabric, loose silhouettes, sheer detailing, and minimal embellishments. Choose simple yet sparkling jewelry to mirror the glimmering ocean as the sun sets over the water. Here are my picks for casual and simple beach wedding dresses, fresh off the 2011 runways.
Easy and breezy, this beige wedding dress from www.dresstores.com is the perfect thing to show off a glowing beach tan. The fabric of this dress will flutter beautifully in the wind as you walk down the aisle.
Feel like a beach goddess in this Farah Angsana number, whose hemline length brings you the best of both worlds. The short front hem allows you to show off your gorgeous legs, but the longer hem at the back gives you the drama of a long train trailing behind you.
If you’re not a fan of loose silhouettes, this wedding dress is for you. The ruched bust and the detailing on the waist accents your feminine curves, but you still get the carefree vibe of a beach wedding gown because of the fine chiffon fabric.
The jeweled bust of this beautifully understated dresstores.com wedding dress will glimmer under the sun as you exchange vows by the water. The sweetheart bust tastefully reveals a hint of skin.
www.dresstores.com’s simple white wedding dress is a truly minimalist piece that allows you to have fun with accessories. Try a statement necklace with large semi-precious stones, or a simpler one made of layered gold chains.
Romantic and ethereal, this wedding dress is the perfect piece for the bohemian beach bride
