Which Destination Wedding Dresses Will You Be Wearing This Summer?
By Adrian Leighton
If you're lucky enough to be having a beautiful beach wedding this year then you are faced with a choice; do you go casual or choose destination wedding dresses
? Casual wedding dresses aren't everyone's thing, because some brides believe that they lack the marriage of a 'proper' wedding dress. But a formal wedding dress may well be too long, heavy, and impractical for an outdoor event.
That's where destination wedding dresses
come in, because they have the fairytale style of a formal dress, but they are often simpler, lighter, and less bulky than their formal cousins.
What Are Destination Wedding Dresses?

This is a typical destination wedding dress which looks formal, but light-weight at the same time.
Destination wedding dresses are pretty similar to regular, formal wedding dresses in many ways, but there are a few key differences which make them so well-suited to outdoor weddings like yours:
- Lighter fabrics like chiffon and organza are used a lot more to keep the dress comfortable, even if it's warm.
- The cut of each dress is usually simpler, with more emphasis on plain lines.
- Big skirts are out, instead you'll see a lot of flowing skirts that flow down comfortably.
- Heavy decoration is avoided as this adds weight.
So you have a versatile wedding dress that gives you the best of both worlds, and many even have short skirts in case you're worried about getting wet or dirty!

Here is a destination wedding dress that has a short skirt. Despite the skirt, the dress still looks elegant and formal.
You can accessorize your dress by incorporating elements from the place that you're holding your wedding. For instance, if it is
on the beach then you could use necklaces made of shells, or somehow get some seaweed or starfish into your bouquet!
