BEACH PLEASE….THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT!

When you picture a beach wedding, chances are you’re dreaming of the soft sand, cool ocean breeze and gorgeous sunset in the distance. Well, here’s some great tips to choosing the right gown, wind proofing your decor, and having a worry-free beach wedding.
Dress Accordingly
Skip the big dress. Let’s face it: A ballgown belongs in, well, a ballroom. You may be able to get down the aisle in a full dress and long train but walking on the beach and taking photos won’t be easy.

Ditch the heels 
Sand and high heels just don’t mix. Wear flat-sole sandals, espadrilles or wedges – shoes that won’t sink into the sand. Have your gown hemmed with or without shoes, depending on which option you choose. Remember, sand can get pretty hot. Have an aisle runner made of fabric or thick flower petals to help keep your tootsies cool.

Consider an updo
Think of the elements when deciding on a hairstyle. A tried and true updo will keep you looking polished all night. I definitely suggest doing a trial run at your location. If wearing your hair down is the only option, invest in the services of a stylist, who can do touch-ups throughout the day.
Nix the veil
When marrying outside, think twice about a long veil. If it’s windy, it will be a nightmare for you and the photographer. Instead, accessorize your ‘do with fresh flowers or a headpiece.

Let your guys go informal
While many brides envision their groom in a tux, black wool is a no-no in warm climates.Skip the ‘penguin suits’ and opt for lightweight cotton pants. Beach weddings speak to cotton, linen and sheer silk fabrics, and open collars with either pastels or a bold color like apricot or turquoise, contrasted with a deep ivory.

Stay natural
A gorgeous ocean backdrop doesn’t need to be too dressed up. Instead, highlight the natural beauty of the setting. A beach wedding can be about shells and starfish, but it can also take inspiration from the harmonious color palette of sand, dune grasses, stones and water. Decor should be simple; avoid going over the top with fussy flowers.
