24 Beach Wedding Dresses for Every Bridal Style

wedding dress for the beach

It’s never a bad idea to match your wedding dress to the venue. When it comes to seaside ceremonies, there are definitely certain attributes that you’ll want to pay attention to on your hunt for the perfect beach wedding dress. You might be drawn to lightweight fabrics that catch the wind as easily as a wave. Or relaxed, flowy silhouettes that dance with the breeze. Tiered layers, mini trains, and patterned lace all make sense here.

Chances are if you’re planning to get married on the beach, you’re not one to opt for an ornate dress with a train that rivals Pryanka. And on those lines, we might even suggest that you avoid heavy fabrics and intricately designed details. However, one of our favorite things is when a couple isn’t afraid to break the rules—so if Mrs. Jonas speaks your language, you do you.

But if you want to get inspired by a few suggestions, we pulled dresses from our favorite wedding dress brands and designers to get you started! Have a look below, where we’re rounding up our favorite beach wedding dresses in four main styles: modern, boho, romantic, and non-traditional.
