Ask any young girl and she can probably tell you what her wedding colors will be, what her unique beach wedding dress will look like and who her bridesmaids will be. Although this dream beach wedding dress will change many times over, many women will see their dream beach wedding dress come true in their twenties or early thirties. Yet for many other women, prince charming won’t come along until much later. When this happens, one can still have a fairy tale beach wedding dress, but one that is age appropriate. Here are some tips for a more elegant, sophisticated and mature beach wedding dress.
Remember that most standard beach wedding dress is designed with the younger bride in mind. A more mature bride should probably stay away from princess style/full skirt beach wedding dress and full veils. Instead opt for a more elegant look like a silhouette beach wedding dress with more simple beading (remember less is more for an older bride) or even an elegant beach wedding dress. Also, consider skipping a headpiece and go with simple hair jewelry or flowers in the hair instead. Think about wearing more stunning beach wedding dress and vibrant colors like wine, champagne, silver, gold or soft pastels instead of the traditional white beach wedding dress.
Remember your younger years were for experimenting with casual beach wedding dress styles, but now you will have found the real you – exploit this and really make your beach wedding dress your own. Steer away from the ‘catalogue’ bridal look, and if that means wearing your signature emerald green shoes, or characteristic chunky jewelry, then so be it.
