Just the thought of a beach wedding brings pretty pictures of sand and sea to the mind; along with the relaxed and elegant decor, and your loved ones getting married near the crashing waves. And if you are invited to one, then you might be thinking about all the fun you’re going to have. But as you daydream about all of that, don’t forget to plan your beach wedding looks. Beach weddings tend to be more low-key, so you’ll want to opt for more casual yet chic choices. Flowy, floral, outfits cut in smart patterns are what you should look for. Also, make sure you pick the right fabric. Something lightweight like cotton, satin, or chiffon will keep you cool and dry under the sun. Don’t look at those heavy velvets and embroidered fabrics for a beach wedding unless you want to trap heat and sand.
