When shopping for dresses for a tropical wedding you have to think about the location. We are not just saying a summer wedding or even a beach wedding, we are looking for a dress to wear when we get married in a beautiful tropical location. Are you looking for a tropical wedding dress? So what are we looking for and what do we need to avoid?
Well first thing is that we need to dress for the weather. Our location is most likely really warm and sunny, unless we opted to get married during storm season, but that is unlikely. So we need to wear a dress that will have us looking beautiful and being comfortable throughout the day. Lets start with out comfort, we should take care of this first because there are thousands of beautiful dresses we could find, but not all of them are comfortable.
Dresses for a tropical wedding should be made out of more comfortable and lighter material. Your tropical wedding dress will be more informal in natural, but equally stunning to their church wedding traditional counterparts. Instead of wearing a dress with a bulky ballroom skirt, a long train and heavy material you may opt to wear something lighter and shorter. This will keep you more comfortable throughout the day, especially if you tropical wedding is outside and not inside an air conditioned venue. Of course just because you are getting married on the beach or in the tropics does not mean that the dress has to be short. There are plenty of long dresses that are light and would be suitable for a tropical wedding.
Sand and wind can play havoc with heavier dresses, hairpieces and veils and well as long trains. With that being the case most brides shopping for dresses for a tropical wedding tend to go a little bit simpler. The dress is shorter and made of a light airy fabric. As far as accessories goes, many brides opt for tiaras or hair combs instead of veils and most of the time the train is all together eliminated. When looking at shoes you might want to consider lower heels or no heels at all and look for styles that include sandals and flip flops.
Finally when looking for dresses for a tropical wedding you might want to consider researching the location of your upcoming nuptials for any traditions or fashion trends in the area. You may want to choose a tropical wedding dress that is not only comfortable and beautiful but one which is also closely linked to what other people native of the area might wear to a wedding.
