Every bride to be dreams of the day she walks down the aisle and says, “I do” to the man she will spend the rest of her life with. For many brides to be that aisle just happens to be a pristine, white sandy beach in an exotic locale. As more and more couples switchgears and decide to have destination weddings, REAL SIZE BRIDE wanted to give away tips for selecting the ultimate plus size beach wedding dresses!
THREE MUST HAVES IN PLUS SIZE BEACH WEDDING DRESSES:
1.) Light material
2.) Shorter length
3.) Something that fits YOUR style
WEDDING DRESS FABRIC
Chiffon wedding gowns tend to be the best for destination weddings. Chiffon is such a light and airy fabric that provides optimal breathability. Depending upon the time of day, time of year and how close you are to the equator, brides should consider purchasing plus size beach wedding dresses in chiffon, so they can glisten, not sweat, in the sun. The downside, chiffon wedding gowns are the most basic fabric, and does not have any shine or sparkle. This typically isn’t an issue, if you are going to be on a sandy beach and taking pictures in the ocean anyway.
Organza wedding gowns are another fantastic option to keep you feeling cool and looking radiant. Often times, organza is just an overlay, and not the primary fabric of the dress, since it can be transparent, depending upon the quality and grade used. But you still can find amazing plus size beach wedding dresses in organza, which are more glitzy than chiffon. Organza has a sheen and slight shimmer so it adds more oomph and pizzazz to your look.
SHORT SEXY WEDDING DRESSES
The majority of beach brides opt for short sexy wedding dresses but there are always acceptations to the rule! Not everyone is comfortable, or willing to give up, her gorgeous plus size ball gown, regardless of temperature. But for the brides who want to bare their legs, and not have a long train, hail to short beach wedding dresses! What better way to stay cool, be beach casual, and not fill guilty for getting your white dress dirty from sand and the ocean spray. Plus most short plus size beach wedding dresses tend to be a fraction of the price of a full length gown: less fabric, less cost, and more margaritas!
WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
REAL SIZE BRIDE vehemently recommends, buy the wedding gown of YOUR dreams, not of someone else’s. You are the bride to be, its YOUR call if you choose a pink wedding dress, short dress, or plus size ball gown. As long as YOU are comfortable in your own skin, nothing else matters than walking down that sandy aisle and kissing the man of your dreams. We’re confident he’ll be happy to see you in any kind of dress!
