Looking to escape the rain on your big day? Getting married abroad is becoming increasingly popular, especially with British brides. It’s an opportunity to have the perfect day while surrounded by your family in an exciting location.
For the lucky ones who are travelling abroad for their wedding, some extra thought may be needed when choosing that all-important dress. Depending on where you’re headed, whether you’re planning to get married on a sandy shore, having a city ceremony or getting married in a snowy wonderland we have some advice on what wedding dress you should have.
Shorter dresses are perfect for a beautiful barefoot beach wedding although a longer dress in this environment can add a little more romance. If you are considering a longer beach wedding dress try a light and floaty fabric, not only will this keep you cool but it help while sauntering down the beach. Again keep it light on the accessories; a veil is a good option to keep your hair in place. Alternatively embrace the sea air with a couple of hair slides among your tousled locks.
Keep your wedding dress sleek and simple or even try a 1950’s inspired short dress to give a pretty and feminine look. These dresses are extremely flattering due to the accentuated waist, full skirt and easy to wear while you are chasing around your dream city. It is a good idea to keep your accessories simple perhaps with a tiara or fascinator.
With the more simple and pretty dresses there is more of an excuse to go for a pair of fabulous wedding shoes.
Long and detailed gowns give a sense of drama in a snowy scene so go for a tapework, beaded or embroidered dress with a sleek silhouette. Adding a bolero can add a classic touch while also covering you up against the cold air.
