Perfect Dresses for Beach Wedding Guests
When a friend invites you to a destination wedding on some hot tropical island beach, it doesn't give you the right to drastically under dress. As much as you are trying not to look overdressed, remember there is a thin line between casual and tacky. Here are a few tips to help you pick the perfect dresses for beach wedding guests.
Neither too long nor too short
As you may already know, beaches are really windy. The wind can send your skirt flying within no time giving the rest of the wedding guests a show. For this reason, you should never wear a short light dress to a beach wedding. That doesn't mean you should wear a maxi dress. Such a dress will drag in the sand and get dirty even before the wedding starts. For a daytime beach wedding, a knee-length summer dress is best. However, if it is an evening beach wedding pick a long evening dress that doesn't touch the ground. If you do not intend to buy a new dress for the wedding, you could hem a longer dress to ankle length.
Fabric is very important
Most wedding guest dresses for beach weddings are made with fabrics that do not respond very well to warmth and humidity. For example, silk and organza are a no go zone; when they come into contact with water spray, sweat and sand, they look wrinkly and wilted. Choose light fabrics such as tulle, charmeuse or duchess satin which is lighter compared to regular satin. Remember, if you feel hot and sweaty, you won't be able to enjoy yourself.
More color and print
When it comes to beach weddings colorful dresses are the way to go. For a day wedding, you can pick anything from deep red to pastel colors such as pink and lavender. On the other hand pale blue and mint green are perfect in the evening. Printed dresses such as Hawaiian dresses are also perfect for beach wedding guest dresses. The traditional Hawaiian dress which is referred to as a Muumuu dress is a loose, brightly colored dress with floral prints. It enables you to move around freely while keeping you cool in the hot humid beach weather.
