Wedding dress codes can sometimes leave you a little confused. There are so many options and variations these days. But we are here to help. We've decided to build a comprehensive guide with our suggestions for your best wedding guest looks. First up - beach weddings.
FORMAL BEACH WEDDING
The invitation may not specify if it's a formal or a casual beach wedding but it's always better to clarify this with the couple. If they are planning a more elegant occasion, dress to impress, but also keep in mind it will most likely be hot and sunny. If you'd wear it to a nice restaurant on your beach vacation, it will work for a formal beach wedding too. Keep your hair and makeup minimal, stick to flat sandals or comfy wedges and don't forget sunglasses.
Dress option 1: Romantic floral gown
Dress option 2: Midi length cocktail dress
CASUAL BEACH WEDDING
If the couple specifies a more casual occasion, your options are open but you would be better off avoiding shorts, tank tops and beach coverups. Think something you'd wear to a Sunday brunch or a summer birthday party. Pick light fabrics like cotton or chiffon and stick to brighter colors. Wear natural makeup and comfortable footwear and add a few simple accessories to finish the look.
Dress option 1: Sundress
Dress option 2: Mini cocktail dress
