If the dress code is beach formal, you should wear a traditional suit and tie, especially if the reception is being held near the beach in a restaurant, resort ballroom, or on a yacht. If semi-formal beach wedding attire is required, then you should wear slacks and a button-down shirt.
Beach weddings are an opportunity to step up your typical beachwear of shorts and a bikini, but you can’t fall back on typical nuptial attire of taffeta or silk. Find the middle ground with these 10 breezy options at every price point.
Beach weddings have many types of dress codes from beach casual, where the simplest sundress will do, to beach formal or beach chic, where a long maxi dress with accessories might be the best look.
For more casual weddings or outdoor weddings, short dresses or midi dresses in relaxed fabrics and silhouettes are appropriate. Two-piece dresses are also a big trend and would look great at a garden wedding.
