If you are looking for a casual yet elegant wedding outfit that will make you stand out among all your wedding party, the best choice may be to wear a beach wedding gown. A beach wedding gown is an old-fashioned piece of formal wedding attire, but today there are many options available to you to suit your unique personal style. However, sticking to a same sex wedding doesn't necessarily mean that you should always buy a bridal dress that fits your natural bust size.
Since the majority of women's wedding dress sizes are not that large, you don't really need to worry much if you find that your size does not fit you in a typical bridal shop. However, it's always good to err on the side of caution. In fact, a beach wedding gown may be too informal for some women, especially when the rest of the bridal party wears strapless wedding gowns that allow plenty of room to show off their body.
A good idea is to get a few sizes of beach wedding gowns to compare, so that you can figure out what will look good on you and will flatter your figure. If you know how to measure correctly and take a few measurements in different clothing, then you will definitely find yourself with more options than you might think.
When shopping for a beach wedding gown, you may find that you can buy a full-length skirt and a blouse instead of a typical halter style or spaghetti straps dress. Many women enjoy the feel of a flowing skirt and a blouse, which are easy to do and will add a lot of charm to your look on the day. You can also wear your wedding guest dress as a skirt or dress, if you don't mind cutting it in such a way so that you don't have to hide any of the details.
Keep in mind, however, that beach wedding gowns tend to run a little bit tighter than your standard wedding gown. This may make you look a bit thinner than you are, but it's a small price to pay for what you will look like in your wedding gown. For this reason, you may want to wear a two-piece wedding ensemble that includes a formal wedding gown and a pair of formal sandals for a relaxed and comfortable look at the wedding reception.
You will also find that many brides opt to wear matching beach wedding dresses with their wedding party members. This makes for an extremely coordinated look and it's a great way to combine your bridal gown with the rest of your wardrobe. It's a good idea to have several pieces of the same color or theme so that you can coordinate everything.
If you are going to wear a wedding gown at a beach wedding, you may want to bring along an accessory with you to complete your look, especially if it's something unusual. Brides may also choose to bring a bouquet and a candle or flower arrangement to the beach wedding to accentuate their beautiful wedding dresses. This will give the feeling of a wedding in a completely different setting.
Remember that your bridal party will be wearing their wedding dresses on the beach, so they will probably want to go for a casual appearance on their wedding day. Don't forget to bring a sun hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat with you. If you aren't sure what to bring, you could ask the bride or her maid of honor to suggest something for you to wear to the wedding or you could even just take a few beach themed jewelry items to the beach.
