Vin’s Advice:

Now that we have the basics down, let’s move onto some extra pointers that you should keep in mind.

  • Light fabrics that do not cling to the body are best.
  • A statement string of pearls or starfish hair accessory is a great addition to a beach bridal dress.
  •  Wearing open toe flats. You could even go barefoot with some pretty accessories on your feet. Please do not wear heels.
  • Make sure that you don’’t wear a dress that is too short & loose. The beach is a windy place and so you might end up accidentally flashing everyone with just the slightest wind gust.
  • If the ceremony or reception is scheduled in the evening, keep a light weight, sheer shawl handy.
