Top 5 dresses for beach brides

Submitted by view on August 18, 2017

We’ve scoured the Spring Summer 2018 catwalks and collections to bring you a selection of gowns that are suitable for your beach wedding in Thailand

Shopping for a wedding dress is a challenging task for any bride-to-be, and the mind-boggling array of choices when it comes to colour, cut and fabric can often seem overwhelming. For beach brides trying the knot in tropical Thailand, choosing the perfect frock can be even trickier. After all, there’s a host of extra factors to consider when picking out the perfect gown, from the strong sea breeze to the soft sandy surface underfoot. For many beach brides, striking the right note between bridal and casual for their laid-back tropical wedding can also be a challenge. That’s why we’ve rounded up a selection of sublime wedding gowns, perfect for brides who plan on saying their vows with sand between their toes.

Boho bride

For brides that love the traditional effect and stunning embellishment of traditional lacework, this gown by Lillian West is perfect. Featuring a flattering V-neckline and an adorable baby doll cut, it’s perfect for boho brides that want to inject a sense of fun into their ensemble. With a shorter hemline, post-ceremony paddling with your new husband isn’t going to be a problem. The crisp white shade of the fabric ticks the traditional box, too. All in all, this playful gown offers a win-win solution to your wedding day style.

Vintage chic

For brides on the hunt for a classic gown without a long train that’s going to trail in the sand, this 1950s-inspired frock could be just the ticket. Intricately sequinned lace gives the dress a strong sense of timeless glamour – ideal if you’re keen to channel vintage vibes on your wedding day. The illusion neckline also adds an unusual design flourish. Pair this dress with pearl jewellery and a flawless vintage-inspired hair arrangement to complete the look. Sandals, as shown in this image, will also work well in the tropical Thai climate.

Break from tradition

For brides keen to break away from tradition entirely, this structured short sleeved number from Mason Hosker’s Spring Summer 2018 collection is an ideal choice. First of all, the white-grey hue of the fabric adds a distinctly modern character to the dress. Furthermore, the structured silhouette is a great choice for brides that don’t fancy donning floaty fabrics that will be blown around by the sea breeze. If you’re looking for the perfect non-wedding dress to walk down the aisle, then this quirky gown might just be “the one”.

Love lace

Floaty and fantastic, this mini lace wedding dress from Jenny Packham’s Spring Summer 2018 is a modern classic. Fresh off the catwalk, this frock is a stunning choice for brides on the lookout for a shorter dress for their beach wedding, or those that are keen to slip into something a bit more casual at the party by the pool later on. The short hemline of this embellished lace gown is offset by the longer sleeves, and the plunging neckline adds even more character. Imagine dancing on the beach in this spectacular mini dress?

Fashion forward

Perhaps the quirkiest pick of this collection, this mid-length wedding dress from Viktor & Rolf’s latest bridal collection is sure to turn heads. Once again, the unusual silhouette of this gown doesn’t scream “bride” – which will suit ladies who are trying to break away from traditional styles. The high neckline and three-quarter length sleeves infuse the dress with demure undertones, while the structured embellishment at the front brings a modern sense of fun. Thanks to all of its striking details, this dress should be paired with sleek, simple shoes and accessories.
