Outdoor weddings are growing more and more popular, especially in the warmer months. Whether you choose a scenic mountain-top venue or a beach location, we want our brides to look and feel their most beautiful selves. When it comes to outdoor weddings, there are some specific wedding dress dos and don'ts to keep in mind to ensure that you look your best and feel comfortable throughout the day. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
DO consider the weather: Outdoor weddings can be unpredictable, so make sure you choose a dress that is appropriate for the temperature and weather conditions. For example, if you're getting married in the summer, choose a lightweight fabric like chiffon or organza, and avoid heavy materials like satin or velvet. If you're getting married in the fall or winter, consider a dress with long sleeves or a higher neckline to keep you warm.
DON'T wear a long train: While a long train may look beautiful in a church or indoor venue, it can be impractical for an outdoor wedding. A long train can easily get caught on rocks, dirt, or grass, and can become damaged or dirty very quickly.
DO choose comfortable shoes: Outdoor weddings often require a lot of walking, so make sure you choose comfortable shoes that you can walk in easily. Consider wearing flats, sandals, or low-heeled shoes that won't sink into the grass.
DON'T wear a veil: While a veil can look beautiful in indoor settings, it can be a hassle in an outdoor setting. Veils can easily get caught in the wind, and can also attract bugs and other outdoor elements.
DO opt for a shorter dress: A shorter dress can be a great option for an outdoor wedding, especially if you're worried about getting your dress dirty or damaged. Consider a knee-length or tea-length dress that will allow you to move around freely.
DON'T wear heavy jewelry: Heavy jewelry can be uncomfortable and can weigh you down, especially if you're wearing it for a long period of time. Consider wearing simple, lightweight jewelry that won't get in the way.
