beach wedding dress

Sometimes, on a particular rainy day in July, we admit we’re not surprised that a lot of Irish brides take to hotter climates to tie the knot. Who among us isn’t tempted by the promise of clear blue skies, sun-kissed skin and long white beaches? For a wedding, these sun-filled destinations almost triple in their allurement as you imagine yourself walking barefoot down the beach surrounded by your friends, family and better yet – the sun. You open a whole world of options up for your wedding day when you choose to go abroad and you can incorporate a whole host of choices never before possible in Ireland. While we do love our dear old green aisle, its sometimes unpredictable weather and lack of exotic greenery and beaches can make us flock towards countries that do.

The good news with a destination wedding, aside from the overjoyed relatives that have an excuse for another getaway, is the different style dress you can choose. Whether it will be indoors at a hilltop cathedral or an outdoor ceremony by the sea, you will need a dress that is light, airy and romantic. Many brides solely choose a wedding on the beach just so they can wear this particular style of wedding dress. Your choice of dress will need to be tailored to have you sitting and feeling comfortable in the hot climate and the beach breeze. It’s much better for your entire day to ensure that you are cloaked in something lightweight, airy and flattering. This pretty much rules out any thought of wearing beading, organza, tulle, A-line skirts or constricting jackets.  A beach wedding is meant to be a bohemian affair, full of romance and relaxed beauty. To suit that theme of laid back beauty, we have found some of the best beach wedding dresses from some of the most trusted and renowned bridal names around for your big day in the sun.
