You are invited at a beach wedding. Both the wedding ceremony and the reception will be held on the beach and they are going to start somewhere around noon and hold until late in the evening. But it is the first time you need to attend a beach wedding and you have a problem regarding what to wear.
Your problem is solved in a heartbeat if you choose to think about some very common sense things. The first thing you need to take into consideration is the formality of the wedding. Usually, a beach wedding is less formal. Semi-formal to informal are the types of weddings held on the beach. Therefore a beach wedding guest dress should be very comfortable.
Another thing you need to take into consideration is the weather. Clearly it is going to be a hot summer day, the sun is going to be very bright and in the evening the breeze can be a little bit chilly. Therefore, you should consider having a shawl with you on the beach that you will wear over your short, large, strapless or spaghetti straps dress. Or if having a shawl is too much trouble, you can always choose to wear a dress with cap sleeves or T-shirt sleeves.
Now you need to think about the color of your beach wedding guest dress. I hope you did not for a minute think that black is going to be a suitable color. Nor white. White might be the color of the bride and you do not want to draw the attention of the guests on you. But you should opt for brighter colors, very light ones like cream, butter-cream, fuchsia, pink, orange, blue in all its shades, light green, teal, yellow.
Regarding the fabrics used for the beach wedding guest dresses, these are some very soft, light-weighted fabrics that will allow your skin to breathe and will make you feel very comfortable. Usually organic or natural fabrics are the ones that you might want to wear, but you could also go for organza or cotton. Any soft, breathable, vaporous fabric that would look good on you will be perfect for the beach.
And now to sum up, your beach wedding guest dress will look fresh, vaporous, bright, comfortable and feminine and so you will enjoy your first wedding on the beach.11
