What Would Jamie Wear: Beach Wedding

Let's face it, dressing for weddings is not always the easiest thing to do. What time of day is the party, is it outside or inside, will it be cold or warm, how dressy should I be? There are so many things to take into consideration. Recently I was asked what my thoughts were on dressing for a beach wedding for a couple that is getting married in Mexico and planning a beach themed reception when they return home. Good question. This can be tough because while it is beach themed it is not actually on the beach so I would not as far as wearing flip flops or items that you associate with a day on the beach soaking up the rays.

I love dresses so I have an arsenal of dresses here that I think would be very nice for a beach themed wedding without making a guest feel too overdressed but still keeping with the feel that the bride and groom are going for.

Shoes are a weakness of mine and the trends this season show beautiful wedges and sandals with gems, jewels and metallics that can really make your outfit stand out.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Have you ever been to a destination wedding or a beach themed wedding reception once the couple got home?  What did you wear and what tips do you have?

See you swoon,

  1. Thanks so much Jamie! I had some ideas about a dress, but was really lost on shoes. I wasn't sure whether to go for "fun" sandals, or a dressier strappy sandal heel. The examples you gave are perfect. Now I just need to go shopping!
