I don’t care what anyone says, there is nothing like a young bride in a short wedding gown. This year we saw as many shorter gowns as we saw long gowns. I really like the trend. I’m not talking dresses that are extremely short, most dresses is were just above the knee. Colors range from white to off white to ivory and champagne. There were sweetheart necklines that were strapless and a classic bustier look. It was absolutely beautiful. One advantage to a shorter dress is your ability to get through the sand. Most shorter dresses are going to be more light weight than a longer dress. And speaking of weight in your dresses there is a few things you need to know. If you go for a more structured gown that is tight you will find your movement restricted in the soft sand. That is why we recommend loose flowing gowns. It’s just easier for you to get around without all that weight. A structured gown has boning in it to support the structure itself. These extra pieces are generally plastic so they can bend but it adds more weight to the dress. Mermaid gowns also have this same issue. So try on more than one gown to find the one that’s right for you. Remember you will be walking through soft sand and even the most light weight down can seem heavy if you have a long way to walk in it. We try to pick places that are easy for you to walk through but sometimes we do have to go all the way down the beach to get away from people so your wedding is more private.
