There are two reasons why we love attending beach weddings: First, who wouldn't want an excuse to hit up the shore, right? And second, it's the perfect occasion to bust out the flowy frocks and stylish block heels that have been resting at the back of our closets.
Beach ceremonies are relatively more casual than traditional nuptials, so, if the dress code allows it, use them as an excuse to rock some island-ready ensembles and nautical accesories. Not to mention, you'll be in between the sand and the sun, meaning you would need to dress a bit more on the lighter side to avoid getting too heated (hubadera girls, this is also your chance to show a little bit of skin.) If you need some ideas, scroll on for 12 OOTDs that were made to be worn by the coast.
12 fresh outfits to wear when attending a beach wedding
1. Maxi Sundress with a Cut-Out + Stacked Necklaces + Hoop Earrings + Handbag
This garment will enjoy the island breeze as much as you will! The strappy shoulders, oversized bow and midriff cut-out add some interest to the top portion, and the skirt is as delightfully voluminious as possible. Make sure to pile on some appropriately beach-ready accesories.
2. Strapless Midi Dress with Cut-Outs + Hoop Earrings + Strappy Block Heels + Headscarf
A seaside affair is an opportune time to rock something that's equal parts classy and sultry. Hunt for a silky midi dress that has cutouts at the sides which create a bikini-like look. To complete the boho-chic OOTD, try wrapping a scarf around your head for a fresh way to style your tresses.
3. Printed Off-Shoulder Top and Skirt Set + Chunky Slippers + Wide-Rimmed Sunnies + Handbag
For ceremonies where color is more than welcome in the dress code, a multi-tone top and skirt pairing is definitely a fun and effortless option to go for. The only other pieces needed to round it out are some neutral-toned accesories and shoes. If you're a bit hesitant to rock something this vibrant, we're pretty sure this 'fit would look just as great in solid hues.
4. Tiered Midi Sundress + Strappy Heels + Handbag + Hoop Earrings
A timeless choice you can slip into for any setting is a sundress with a square neckline and spaghetti straps. It'll have you looking elegant amidst the crowd, while still ensuring you stay as fresh as a daisy.
5. Puff Sleeve Midi Dress + Sandals
To the more modest girls out there, we got you. You can still turn heads on the shore with a pastel-toned midi that features a scoop neckline and puff sleeves.
6. Puff Sleeve Mini Dress + Stacked Necklaces + Panama Hat + Strappy Sandals + Handbag
Look like the shining sun itself and don a lacey yellow frock with the puffiest of sleeves. Going for a shorter length with a v-neck, and wearing it with some stacked jewelry adds some flair while still keeping it fun.
7. Cropped Polo and Skirt Set + Wide-Rimmed Sunnies
One piece of clothing that just begs to be worn by the coastline is a crisp white polo. Update the office essential by looking for one with a cropped fit, or a tie-up detail in the front. Wear it with a matching skirt and printed sunnies, and you're ready to look cool and collected for the ceremony.
8. Wide-Legged Halter Jumpsuit + Sandals + Handbag
If you're more of a pants kind of girl, a roomy jumpsuit with a halter neckline would be the way to go when attending beach nuptials. Choose one in an earthy shade and match it with your sandals and handbag of choice.
9. Puff Sleeved Crop Top and Trouser Set + Chunky Slippers
Here's another option if you don't feel like slipping into a full-on frock for the event. There's still some formality with this more casual duo, thanks to the high-waist of the trousers and the slight volume of the sleeves.
10. Satin One-Shoulder Maxi Dress + Sandals
You'll be itching to twirl around the reception dance floor in this frock. The flowiness doesn't only impart a fun element to the dress, as it also ensures maximum breeziness throughout the gathering.
11. Printed Wrap-Style Blouse + Trousers + Statement Earrings
There's a lot to love about this top, what with its zany floral print, poofy sleeves and cropped length. It pairs nicely with some plain high-waisted pants, adding some character to the semi-formal attire. When you already have something this eye-catching on, it's best to go all the way by rocking some equally as quirky earrings.
12. Off-Shoulder Midi Dress + Slides + Handbag
A pristine little white dress will come to the rescue if ever your invite to the beach ceremony arrived a little late. Treat it as a fool-proof base that will look great with as much (or as little) accesories you want to have on.
