24 seashore marriage ceremony attire for each bridal model

Customizing your wedding dress to match the venue is never a bad idea. When it comes to seaside ceremonies, there are definitely certain characteristics to look out for in your search for the perfect beach wedding dress. You may be drawn to lightweight fabrics that catch the wind as easily as a wave. Or relaxed, flowing silhouettes that dance with the breeze. Here, graduated layers, mini-trains, and patterned tips make sense.

If you’re planning on getting married on the beach, chances are you’re not going for an embellished dress with a train that can rival Pryanka. In these lines, we may even recommend that you avoid heavy fabrics and elaborately designed details. However, one of our favorite things to do is when a couple isn’t afraid of breaking the rules. So if Ms. Jonas speaks your language, so do you.

But if there’s a few suggestions for inspiration for you, we’ve pulled dresses from our favorite wedding dress brands and designers to get you started! Check out below where we group our favorite beach wedding dresses into four main styles: modern, boho, romantic, and non-traditional.
