So youâve chosen to tie the knot on foreign shores â congratulations, thatâs a great first step. There are plenty of reasons to choose a destination wedding in a dream location - sunshine, soft sand or striking scenery. Even better if you are making it a weddingmoon in paradise! But choosing the perfect dress to suit the occasion can be tricky.
âIt will need to stand up to the heat, humidity and probably sand too, to keep you comfortable on your special day. Ideally avoid anything that's too tight, embellished or too heavy. Instead, select a wedding dress with light floaty layers or sheer fabrics, sleeveless or with loose sleeves to keep your cool and fresh on the day.
Bohemian looks and off the shoulder dresses are perfect and the fashion for dresses with short or no train really helps at a beach wedding.
The latest trends for simple silhouettes and clean lines Ã¡ la Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, are ideal for a steamy destination. Idris Elbaâs recent marriage in Morocco saw his bride, Sabrina Dhowre, wearing a stunning A-line off the shoulder gown from Vera Wang before changing into another Wang creation for the evening celebrations.

Short dresses are utterly in vogue and will keep you cool under the super sun. Crochet is bang on trend as is stretch lace. A short frock is great for showing off fabulous shoes too! Capture those vintage festival vibes.
With the turquoise sky, your footprints in the soft white sand and the salty smell of the sea, a dress which fits with the romance of the setting is all important. Go for glamorous Grecian draping to really capture the mood.
Another great style for a destination wedding is the backless bridal gown. To stay totally ahead of the curve add a bow at the small of your back. Bows are everywhere and vary in size from cute to statement. âSo show off your bronzed body with this top trend and look sizzling on the sand.
Being a modern bride doesnât mean you have to wear a fairytale dress, in fact you could choose not to wear a dress at all. No, that doesnât mean you have to have a naturist wedding! Wear a trouser suit or a jumpsuit instead. Complete the look with flats or heeled sandals. â
Whatever you choose you are bound to look stunning!
