Before you buy a wedding dress for an overseas celebration, you have to ask yourself a few questions… What’s the weather going to be like? Will this fabric travel well? Will this design suit my theme? Does this dress complement the location?
These lightweight wedding dresses from the latest True Bride collection are perfect for a party on the beach. Elegant and timeless, they all share a lasting beauty yet have a casual feel that make them perfect for a wedding abroad.
If you’re tying the knot on the sand, remember that you may not need a traditional train. You may want your hemline to be shorter, and you won’t want lots of heavy underskirts – think floaty fabrics that will blow in the sea breeze and you won’t go far wrong. Here are some of our favourite looks for 2014…
Style W110 is an airy, chiffon dress that boasts a Grecian-inspired drape at the back. The modest train makes this perfect for a beach setting – it won’t weigh you down or hold you back.
Style W138 has a light, fluid shape with a sheer illusion neckline, encrusted with sparkly beads and accents of lace. A gorgeous choice for a low-key bride still looking for a gown with an edge.
Style W134 is perfect for a country or rustic mountain setting abroad. This is a simple, informal lace wedding dress without all the fuss. Elegant simplicity at its best.
For a fashion-forward and unique look, style W112 is a stunning choice. A short wedding dress with a sassy full A-line skirt and a statement crystal detail at the waist, it is guaranteed to wow your guests.
Style W998 is inspired by the glamour of Hollywood sirens and decades gone by. A lightweight satin gown with a simple cut and low back, making it perfect for a glamorous destination wedding. Think ‘private villa in Ibiza’ or ‘the Amalfi coast’.
Finally, style W951 is a casual yet super romantic gown. It has subtle crystal beading which is sure to catch the sunshine – or candlelight. Can be worn with a sheer tulle bolero for that added coverage should you need it.
