We hear this question all of the time. There are so many beach weddings here on Marco Island and in Naples and why not , it is beautiful and a dream for so many.
Funny, I think the first thing that men ask is ” can I wear shorts”? And women always worry about the shoes ” but they will sink in the sand”?
The bride is allowed to be formal. She just wants her beautiful dress to slightly blow in the tropical breeze and for her forever man to sweep her up and kisses her as the sun is setting. She is the star of the show. Now, back to you. A wedding is a special occasion but remember, it is on the beach. So, relax! No sequins, no stuffy formal dresses and no over the top high heel shoes.
It is a great excuse to find a beautiful flowing dress. Short or long but not too formal or constructed. Generally it is warm and perspiration marks or melting hair and makeup don’t make for pretty.
Save your beautiful heels for the indoor reception…just slip on some pretty jeweled flip flops or low heels. For that matter bare feet always work in the sand ( but NO where else). Above all enjoy the happy occasion.
