Beach Wedding Dresses
Where’s your dream beach wedding...a tropical island, ocean resort, or rugged coastline? Imagine saying your vows by the sea. Or dining with guests by an ocean sunset. How do you feel in your bridal gown?
Beach brides often share something special. They’re looking for beach wedding dresses that are light and airy. Effortless. Flowy. Our Simply Val Stefani collection of bridal gowns embrace that carefree spirit. From exquisitely detailed to uniquely modern, from Boho to chic, we offer a variety of gowns that’ll fit your personal style. Let’s look at a few unique options for seaside ceremonies and receptions.
Sweetheart Beach Wedding Dresses
A sweetheart neckline is flattering for most brides, which is probably why it’s one of the most popular bodice styles. It can create, or accentuate, the curves of a bride’s bust. At the same time, the “v” in the center of the neckline creates an overall slimming effect. This oh-so-feminine look is a natural choice for the beach.
Because many beach brides want a strapless sweetheart dress, our favorite Val Stefani gown is BAY. This lace dress features a sweetheart neckline with romantic details--including an illusion inset and delicate eyelash trim. In our BAY gown, the top skirt layer is a sheer tulle lace fabric. You’ll glide over the sand in this breezy gown.
Boho Beach Wedding Dress
Looking for a Bohemian (Boho) beach wedding dress? Beach and Boho pair well together. All-lace fabric is usually what Boho brides are looking for. Lace patterns create that vintage charm usually associated with a Bohemian lifestyle. With our SAILOR gown, you can play up the rustic or chic elements.
Both the bodice and skirt of our SAILOR gown feature a large floral pattern. You’ll adore the embroidered lace fabric and appliques. Like many of our gowns, there are several color options to match your skin tone or your nature-inspired wedding colors. SAILOR is available in ivory, taupe or white. The wide lace straps with a deep “V” neckline and very sexy low back give this gown chic appeal. Use bridal accessories to play up either your hippie Bohemian side, or your Boho-chic style.
Lace Beach Wedding Dress
If you’re a bride who loves lace, you’ll easily find a beach wedding dress with this fabric. Chantilly lace and Alencon are two types of delicate French lace that often have a floral pattern and are beautiful in illusion detailing or overlays. Eyelash lace trim is a bridal gown trend that adds a touch of whimsical romance or vintage Bohemian. A plain chiffon dress isn’t your only option for a seaside ceremony. A light lace, or scattered lace appliques, can also give you that light and airy look.
Perhaps you don’t want an A-line cut. Do you have an eye for glam? In that case, we have a relaxed mermaid silhouette we think you’ll love: BONDI. Notice the exotic peacock feather pattern in the lace. Not your typical lace. Our gown gives you the sexy curves of a mermaid silhouette with room to glide over the sand and dance (the loose fishtail becomes a romantic sweep train). You’ll turn heads with BONDI’s glass and crystal spaghetti straps that feature a sexy low back. Be sure to take photos from different angles in this unique mermaid gown.
Sexy Beach Wedding Dresses
With the glowing sun and warm sand under your feet, showing a little skin by the ocean almost seems expected. Strapless and spaghetti straps are great bodice choices. Showing bare shoulders, or a daring low “V” neckline or low back, is a stunning nod to coastal casual. The modesty of a long skirt gives a classy look to sexy beach wedding dresses.
For a show-stopping gown, we recommend Waverly. This fit and flare commands attention. A see-through bodice features feminine lace appliques, spaghetti straps and a form-fitting silhouette that gently flares out with a softer lace pattern. It’s couture fashion for a cool bride.
There are so many wedding dresses for a beach wedding! An A-line sweetheart gown is a popular cut for a coastal setting, but there’s no reason to rule out a relaxed mermaid or loose fit and flare. As long as the fabrics are light, and the cut allows for easy movement, you can look like a gorgeous sea goddess and feel effortlessly carefree.
