Having an oceanside ceremony is utterly romantic! The cool breeze flowing in your hair, beautiful sunset on the horizon, dreamy sounds of the ocean crashing in the background – we could just go on and on about a wonderful beach wedding ceremony.

However, as romantic as it sounds, pulling off a seaside ceremony isn’t a smooth ride. Like all the other beach-specific factors that go into planning a perfect dream wedding – right from positioning the guest so the sun doesn’t play the spoil-sport to developing a plan B for inclement weather – picking up a sun-n-sand themed wedding ensemble can be a challenge. While choosing a beach wedding dress, you’ve to consider elements like (sticky) sand, (harsh) sun and unexpected breezes.

The key to set an impeccable style statement is to get a wedding dress that is made from lightweight fabric and easy to wear. Again, there are no textbook rules to pick up a beach-ready dress. However, there are a few simple guidelines that you must keep in mind to look at your stunning best! For example, avoid going for a formal ballgown or dresses with chapel train, as they might weigh down and hamper your mobility on the soft and gravelly sand. You can opt for something with airy fabric that enables you to move around freely and dance your heart out. At sea-side, you may experience high humidity, so you go for a dress made from breathable fabrics like either chiffon or silk.

If you’re having a beach wedding, it doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the high-fashion designs. We’ve narrowed a few of our favourite beach-style wedding dresses from some of the reputed labels in the wedding industry.
