Tropical Beach Theme Wedding Dress
You are looking for your beach wedding dress. Where to start? You need to consider the reception style, dancing, and your beach wedding theme.  You may have lots of different ideas about your wedding dress style possibilities, but your wedding will seem unbalanced and not harmonious if you don't have everything centered around a wedding theme. 

The most common beach wedding themes center around the location or your favorite aspect of the seashore you've chosen -- such as a mariner or lighthouse theme, sea shells, tiki torches and exotic flowers, or more simply classical sunset romance.   All else flows around the theme - the ideas and designs for your invitations, place cards, flowers and other decorations, food, even music. 

Your beach wedding dress is no exception. 

The beach location gives you lots of flexibility.  And you don't have to go to a bridal shop and spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a wedding dress.    In fact, some brides with destination beach weddings want something completely different from a church wedding. So they may choose a style to complement the beach wedding destination itself or directly related to their beach wedding theme. 

For example, sarongs are flattering and popular.  Or for a tropical theme or Hawaii beach wedding location, a beautiful Hawaiian wedding dress with lei is sometimes the choice.  Then the maid of honor's dress and best man's shirt are usually made from the same tropical print, too, carrying out the wedding theme.

Where Can You Buy Your Beach Wedding Dress?

There is great shopping online for a wedding dress.  But again, the beach is different and the ideas limitless.  You may want to buy a dress close to home, so you can try on different styles and sizes to see what fits just right and flatters your figure the most.

But I like this wedding dress idea.  If you are traveling to your wedding location far enough in advance of the actual wedding date,  you might want to buy your beach wedding dress there, when you should have a wider selection of what is truly local.  If you are using a destination wedding planner or wedding planning services at the hotel or resort, or even a travel agent, speak with them about this in advance.  See if they can steer you toward select dress shops and other stores located near your wedding site. 

Then your wedding dress, itself, will be another "souvenir" of your wedding and honeymoon!
