Wedding venues: the beach

There is something truly magical about a beach wedding... but the biggest question is: what dress to wear? And even more importantly: what shoes will work!!??!!

In this post we look at a couple of brands that we have worked with before: Christine Ritter Designs (yes, our very own little brand) as well as a gorgeous brand from Australia, Grace Loves Lace (see Jenny's beautiful bohemian gown here).

Christine Ritter Designs

From embroideries to simple silk dresses, this purely bespoke brand designs and creates unique pieces for brides looking for something different and, more importantly, with an explosion of detail. Everything is handmade to the taste of the bride and with the guidance of the designer, these dresses really express the personality of the bride, groom and wedding.

For beach weddings, Christine Ritter Designs suggests a two piece nomination which allows the skirt to flow on the sand and the top to stand out with quality, be it in embroideries or a gorgeous tenured French lace.

Grace Loves Lace

For gowns on the more affordable side... Grace Loves Lace is perfect! All ordered online (which screams DANGER DANGER for most designers), these dresses come with a no frills package. Send in your measurements and receive a dress that fits! Perfecto!

While Grace Loves Lace has some absolutely gorgeous pieces, we do recommend setting aside some budget and time for alterations. While we are sure every brand does it's best to tailor-make wedding dresses to fit perfectly, it's always smart to know that body types and body shapes are different... So don't expect these stretchy dresses to fit perfectly! And a touch of alteration may just give you that added personal touch!
