Beach weddings are pretty spectacular. There’s the sound of the ocean, the sun on your face, and even the breeze in your hair tousling your tresses into bona fide beach waves. But if you ask us, the best part is the wedding dress that goes along with the special day.
The styles to wear at the ocean are varied. Brides can slip into anything from sweeping gowns covered in ruffles and lace to simple silk slip dresses to bohemian off-the-shoulder styles. Whether you’ll be saying “I do” on the shores of Greece or stepping foot in the sand at your local beach, there’s nothing quite as romantic as a wedding by the ocean, and we’ve found the best dresses for the occasion.
