Shoes The idea of wearing shoes in the sand might seem a little pointless, but beach wedding shoes might actually be more important than you realize. What sort of beach shoes do you wear? Are wedding-flip flops a real thing? If the wedding is on a pier or near a boardwalk, or the reception is at a different indoor location, you’ll likely be glad to have something on your feet. For men, leather flip-flops or other sandals are appropriate at casual beach weddings, but you can’t go wrong with a light-colored loafer or boat shoe. Even formal beach weddings don’t typically call for sky-high heels or wedges, since these can be difficult to walk in. Try dressy gladiator sandals or ballet flats, which are sure to be both comfortable and stylish. If you really want to rock a favorite pair of stilettos at a formal beach wedding, bring a pair to change into before the reception gets started. Shop All Shoes

Semi-Formal: A semi-formal beach wedding usually means an evening ceremony and reception to follow. Though beach clothing is still light and breezy, semi-formal men’s beach wedding attire should involve khaki, linen, or seersucker pants, a button down, and a sport coat. Women should look for cocktail or tea-length dresses made of a dressy material. Lace, chiffon, and organza are all beautiful and comfortable choices.

Make Up A beach wedding is not the time to wear your dark, vampy lipstick or a smoky eye. Heavy make up will be hard to maintain in heat, because increased sweat means your eye makeup and foundation might run or smudge. If you think it will be a long night, or if you’re a member of a wedding party trying to keep picture-perfect makeup for hours, consider a makeup setting spray or powder. Don’t forget the waterproof mascara! Natural makeup can still make a statement and flatter anyone without being overwhelming or taking over the bride’s look. Modest amounts of foundation and eye makeup give a soft, dewy look that is perfect for the beach setting. If you want your makeup to have a subtle pop, opt for a pale pink or coral lip color or pastel eyeliner. Shop All Beauty Products

I hope these tips on what  to wear to a beach wedding were helpful. Just consider the sights, sounds, and temperatures that will surround you on the beach (or next to it) in order to select appropriate beach wedding attire that will not only make you look great, but feel great too.

If it’s a formal ceremony, wear a long, elegant gown.  Semi-formal calls for short or tea length dresses, which are great because they won’t drag in the sand, plus they transition beautifully to a reception venue held at a restaurant or ocean front hotel.

It might go without saying, but light and bright colors are the gold standard when it comes to picking your dress for a beach wedding. On a happy day by crystal blue water with your feet in the sand, your outfit should be just as sunny. If the bride has a color scheme she wants guests to adhere to, consider her color palette and look for shades that flatter your skin tone.

Casual: This is the most common type of beach wedding. A simple sundress for women fits the occasion, and khaki or linen shorts and shirt for men are appropriate. Casual beach weddings are usually held during the day, and wearing flip-flops or even going barefoot is acceptable.

Although beach wedding looks are a little more toned down, they’re fun to accessorize! Have fun with bangles or bejeweled earrings and carry a clutch or small cross body purse. If you’re pulling your hair back, add to your style with a headscarf or hair clip. Don’t forget a light jacket or wrap for sensible accessorizing when things cool down in the evening.
