Picking Bridesmaids Dresses for your Destination Wedding
So you’re planning your dream destination wedding? Let’s be real for a moment, it’s a lot more work than you thought it would be. So many more moving pieces than you expected… We get it. We’re here to help.
Long or Short Dresses for a Beachside Wedding?
Will it be hot? Your bridesmaids will be forever grateful if you choose something light and airy. Consider something knee-length OR a dress with flowy draping like this Mori Lee dress in style 21532
If you’re going to be somewhere breezy you may want to stick with a traditional maxi length dress to avoid any wardrobe mishaps. This gown by Bill Levkoff, style 1214, provides the perfect amount of coverage while still staying lightweight with its chiffon material.
Sparkle or no Sparkle?
We can’t think of very many places where sparkle isn’t acceptable… A beachside destination wedding is definitely not one of them! There are different ways to make your bridesmaids dazzle on your big day! Watters Bridesmaids offers sparkly separates so you aren’t overwhelmed by the glitz!
The Watters Bridesmaids 2307 bustier is anything but simple. It can be paired with any skirt and adds the perfect pop of sparkle!
If you’re looking to add a bigger pop to your bridesmaid’s attire, the Celine skirt by Watters Bridesmaids might be the perfect fit! Just like the above bustier, it can be paired with any other piece, and it can be ordered in knee-length!
How to avoid wrinkly dresses after traveling?
You never know what you’ll have available to you at your hotel, it’s best to plan for the worst and assume you won’t have access to a steamer! Chiffon gowns are great! They are flowy, light, and come in every color imaginable! Unfortunately, they also wrinkle easily. We recommend traveling with a chiffon dress in a hanging bang to avoid any wrinkles. Tulle gowns are a great alternative! It’s sheer and flowy, much like chiffon, but much less likely to wrinkle! Mori Lee in style 153 has a gorgeous tulle skirt that we can already imagine flowing in the ocean breeze. When you arrive at your destination hang up your gown right away to help settle any creases caused by travel.
Blend into the Scenery or Stand Out?
Every bride has their own vision when it comes to their wedding day. There is no right or wrong way to do it! So if you’re feeling like you want a bright bold wedding party while saying your vows Cliffside… DO IT. If you’d rather blend into your gorgeous background… DO IT! For a more muted color palette, Hayley Paige Occasions 5700 might be the gown for your girls! It’s sophisticated, modern, and flowy. The perfect combination for your destination wedding!
At the end of the day, no matter which dresses you choose, this day is a celebration of love! So don’t sweat the small stuff, and enjoy your beautiful surroundings!
