Beach Bridesmaid Dresses Tips & Advice

In this Beach Bridesmaid Dresses section, we highlight the most important issues that you will have to decide on before choosing your bridesmaids’ dresses.

Beach weddings are usually small and informal.

Usually the bride will have just a couple of bridesmaids, although there are plenty of brides who opt to have more bridesmaids.

Having a beach wedding usually means that the wedding attire is casual.

Some beach brides go for a more “formal” look but it’s rarely the case when a wedding on the beach is as formal as your usual traditional church wedding.

This means that the dresses of the bridesmaids must compliment the bride’s informal dress as well.

In fact, ideally they should be simple bridesmaid dresses so as not to overshadow the bridal dress.


Beach Bridesmaid Dresses: Styles and Colors

As with any wedding, your biggest headache would probably be trying to find the perfect bridesmaid dress that all your bridesmaids are happy and comfortable to wear.

This can prove to be a somewhat difficult task if your bridesmaids’ figure varies greatly, for example if you have one who is really skinny and another bridesmaid who usually wears plus size dresses.

Varying complexions can also present problems when it comes to choosing the colors of the bridesmaid dresses.

A natural beautiful setting like a beach, calls for simple yet stylish bridesmaid dresses.

Popular styles for beach weddings are short or tea length bridesmaid dresses, strapless or spaghetti strapped. Light and summer bridesmaid dresses are preferred since more often than not you will mostly have hot weather for your wedding.

Popular colors used for beach weddings include light pastel shades such as aqua, pink and yellow. Some beach brides go for bolder colors such as blue and orange.

As regards to fit, the favored style for bridesmaids of varying sizes is an A-line dress. With this type of dress all your bridesmaids will look simply gorgeous.

If you’re still having some difficulty finding the perfect style for each bridesmaid, you can simply use the same colors and fabrics but change the styles of the dresses. Your bridesmaids will still be co-ordinated that way.
