4. Textured Fabrics
Brides who want their beach wedding to make an impression often opt for an eye-catching dress that features both form and function.

To further elongate their neck line consider low-cut necklines that draw attention away from their bust area while drawing the eye directly towards their face.
Fabrics such as chiffon and lace are great options for beach weddings as they’re lightweight and breathable – ideal for brides who tend to overheat easily as it will help them keep cool throughout the day and dance the night away!
Charmeuse and taffeta bridal fabrics provide classic sheen that can elevate any silhouette. Although slightly heavier than chiffon and lace, charmeuse and taffeta still look delicate yet elegant while often made from silk or synthetic material woven together into fabric weaves that helps hold their shape with ease for a seamless finish.
