Surf + Sand: 14 Wedding Dresses for Your Laid-Back Beach Wedding

14 Wedding Dresses for your Beach Wedding

Hello, June!! Summer is officially just around the corner, and we can’t wait to jump right in! From the weddings that will last until the wee hours (thank you warm weather + longer daylight hours), all the sizzling vacations, to (we’re betting) a ton of newly engaged couples planning their summer 2019 wedding… there’s so much to be excited about!

For the gals out there that are imagining an easy, breezy + casual wedding on the beach, with a free-spirited gown, we’ve scoured the web for the crème de la crème. These gowns are the ones that show a little skin, the ones you can dance the night away, gather a fistful of fabric in your hand before dipping your feet into the water and digging your toes into the sand. Can you tell that we’re in serious need of a little beach vacay? Happy shopping, friends! :)

…oh, and that dress above? It’s the Phoenix Gown from our Lovers Society x Green Wedding Shoes collection – SO perfect for a beach wedding! Photo by Katie Shuler, Hair + Makeup by Cheek to Cheek Artistry and that gorgeous gal is one of our lovely readers, Tara Blanchard.

Almost like two dresses in one, no? Show off those stems, while still dressing it up for the big day with all the darling touches of lace!

An ode to the vintage bohemian, we’re simply infatuated with the intricately detailed lace + that sultry bustier.

Body-hugging, yet frilled at the end… we have a feeling this would look even better without shoes!

Show off some leg with this sultry wrap style!

This gown’s lace skirt and wide bell sleeves are just begging for you to twirl around in them… don’t you think?
