How To Choose Your Beach Bridesmaid Dresses

In this article, I highlight some of the most important things that you will have to consider when choosing bridesmaids’ dresses for a beach themed wedding.

Beach weddings are often 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.

The wedding attire is often casual. Although there are beach brides who go for a more “formal” look, 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 dress that all your bridesmaids are happy and comfortable to wear.

This can prove to be a somewhat difficult task if your bridesmaids’ figures vary greatly, say 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 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. Other 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 amazing.

If you’re still having 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 coordinated that way.
