Bridesmaid Dress Ideas for a Beach Wedding

You love your girls and you want them to look and feel beautiful on your wedding day. Everyone has a different style, body shape, and skin tone, so there’s a lot of pressure on brides to choose the right bridesmaid dresses. To help you find dresses that will look beautiful on everyone and blend into your destination wedding, we’ve put together a list of things to consider when thinking of bridesmaid dress ideas for your beach wedding.

Consider the Weather When Choosing your Bridesmaid Dresses

Beach weddings are perfect for brides that want to bask in the sun but it can mean that not all fabrics are great for hot weather. When picking out which style and fabric of dresses your besties will wear, don’t forget to account for the hot, hot heat. Organza, tulle, and chiffon allow for more breeze than most fabrics – plus, they don’t show sweat marks quite like silk.

Play Up the Colors of Your Picture-Perfect Venue

When you plan your destination wedding, you will get to host your ceremony and reception surrounded by the deep turquoise of the sea, the lush green of the trees, and the pinks and golds of the sky.
The beauty of this venue is that you can pull from this color palette. For your bridesmaid dresses, you can choose from bold emeralds, dark azures, or coral. Alternatively, because there will already be so many pops of color surrounding you, your bridesmaids can wear something more subdued, such as cream or champagne, and they will still shine by the sea.

Showcase the Fact that Every Body is Beautiful

All women are built differently, and that is a wonderful thing. When choosing your bridesmaid dresses, show your consideration of this fundamental life fact by ensuring the style you choose doesn’t accentuate anyone’s self-consciousness. If you can’t find one style that suits everyone, consider choosing the fabric and color, and then letting your friends choose the fit that makes them feel fab.

Play with the Length to Find the Perfect Beach Bridesmaid Dress

Long dresses are spectacular, but between the sand, sun, and sea, they may not be the best choice for your beach wedding. Short, tea-length, or knee-length dresses can be equally as stunning and they will certainly hope up against the elements better than a lengthy number.

Have Fun with Your Bridesmaid Dresses!

Whether you decide to incorporate gorgeous floral patterns or captivating mint green, you can play with your bridesmaid dress choices to more accurately reflect the fun, feel-good vibe of a beach wedding. From choosing a pair of differently-colored shoes for each of your closest girls to allowing them to mix and match colors or silhouettes, a beach wedding is the place to strike the ideal balance between sophistication and creative ease.
