As a Tampa Bay Wedding Officiant, I see MANY wedding dresses. All are beautiful, but we wanted to take take a minute to provide some suggestions on wedding dresses that we have noticed throughout our years of officiating. If you are getting married on the beach in Florida there are a few things to consider when looking for your dress. My Tampa Wedding Officiant’s Suggestions for Picking the Perfect Florida Beach Wedding Dress consist of:
- The time of day and the time of year should be considered. During the summer months the sun can be very intense, plus it’s hot and humid. If you have sensitive skin or if you don’t want to risk getting burned get something with a sheer top to lightly cover your shoulders. Choose a light so your dress will allow you to be comfortable, and not sweating during your wedding.
- Consider the length of your dress. If your wedding is on the beach and in the sand, consider look for something that is easy to walk in the sand in. Walking in the sand can be difficult in a long layered dress.
- Also consider the shoes or sandals to be worn with the dress. High heals are a no no on the beach! Zappos.com has some great sandals that can be worn with gowns…and they have an amazing return policy so you can order a few and return ones you don’t like! We also suggest to just go barefoot on the beach.
- Are you flying to your wedding destination? Airlines have so many carry on regulations that you may not be able to carry your dress on board if it is too cumbersome and large. Eshaki.com also has some
very light weight knee length white dresses that can look nice for a beach.
David’s Bridal has a nice selection of beach wedding dresses. Here is one worn by Candace Hodges at her wedding
that we officiated and photographed on Treasure Island Beach this past Saturday.
