As a wedding guest, is there anything more glamorous than attending a beach wedding? From my own personal experience of being at some friends' Greek-island nuptials a few years ago, I can tell you that it's basically the best. Watching the sun go down as you get to see two people swap vows is better than if Meryl Streep were to pop up and start singing "Mamma Mia."
If you've been lucky enough to be invited to such an event, then there are a few rules I'd always stick by when it comes to dressing. Firstly, make sure you have a pair of shoes that you won't mind getting a bit of sand on and that you'll still want to wear if there's a change in location. Secondly, ensure you've got a hat if it's still sunny because getting a sunburn during the vows is less than ideal. Finally, make sure whatever dress you've chosen is going to keep you cool, as you don't want to perspire the whole way through the ceremony.
While most couples who've invited you over to their wedding aren't going to have the actual event during midday (it's usually a late afternoon, maybe even an evening affair depending on how warm the location is), it's still worth bearing in mind that you'll want something that means you won't bee too warm. Whether that's a minidress with puffed sleeves, a flowing dress that keeps you covered but still allows the air to circulate, or even just a simple slip dress, I've hunted down 21 of the best beach wedding guest dresses that I'd genuinely wear.
