As we get ever closer to the summer, that means that wedding season is almost upon us. And with that comes a whole lot of wedding guest stress. Which of your favourite summer wedding dresses is perfect, how to do your hair and how on earth to convince the boyfriend to buy a new tie… These are just some of the things that can add up making you stressed about what should be a joyful event. This is stressful enough when you are attending a wedding in your local area, but when you add the words destination and beach to the invite, you might be wondering what to wear to a beach wedding?!

Beach Wedding Dresses for Guests

Weddings on the beach have a different vibe than your typical English countryside wedding and it can be hard to figure out exactly what dress to wear to a beach wedding. First, you need to think about the location, are you attending a wedding on a Cornish beach where the sun is by no means guaranteed or are you jetting off to see your best friend get married in the Caribbean. If the weather is looking a little shaky then opt for a longer dress that would look great under a sleek jacket or with a light scarf.
