And I do mean that in the nicest way for your Gulf Shores beach wedding as in staying cool and comfortable. We recommend loose flowing wedding gowns. With the heat of July you definitely want comfortable clothing and that includes your wedding gown. With the restrictive gown you will be twice as hot as you normally would be with a loose gown. Remember most gowns that shape you have boning in them and petals to help hold you in place so it is something to think about. Also don’t forget the sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and apply it often. Lots of cold drinks to keep you hydrated. Another thing to think about is how to transport the elderly across the sand to your beach wedding. We recommend a wheelchair with large inflatable wheels which you can rent from vendors and stores on the beach. Recently we had a bride who wanted her 92 year old grandmother to see her get married in Gulf Shores and she rented one, gave her grandmother an unmbrella and the lady had a wonderful time. By taking small precautions and advice from people who are familiar with this area you can have the wedding of your dreams in beautiful Gulf Shores.
