What to Wear to a Beach Wedding

6.09.2012 WRITTEN BY Ashley How to Wear, T+P Blog Central

The third in our What to Wear to a Beach Wedding series , we give you a quick rundown on picking a dress for attending a beach wedding.

Each summer wedding has it’s own set of dress requirements, but one of my personal favorites to dress for is a beach wedding. The waves crash, love is in the air and the perfect dress has me floating through the reception like a social butterfly.

The perfect beach look is no muss, no fuss.  I always recommend a maxi dress for beach weddings to make sure you aren’t dealing with a Marilyn Monroe-type of situation if the wind kicks up.

Casual to elegant, there are so many options for maxi dresses this season. We even dressed our client and BlogHer editor, Morgan, in a couple of our favorites from Gypsy 05.

When it comes to shoes, leave the heels at home so you aren’t the woman wobbling through the sand and eventually pulling those things off in haste. Bernardo makes so many amazing flat leather sandals and Tkees are the perfect solution to finding a simple, yet appropriate flip flop in any color.

Hair, like your dress and shoes, looks great styled in loose waves or pulled back or both.  Our inspiration board on Pinterest is full of hairstyles just perfect for a beach wedding.

Looking for what to wear to a church wedding or outdoor wedding? We have that too!

    As much as I love Marilyn Monroe, I’m not quite sure anyone could pull off that situation with such a flirty appeal. I’ll def stick with a maxi 😉
