Winter Beach Brides

Submitted by lex on September 30, 2013

If you need a little inspiration to style up your winter wedding wardrobe look no further. This winter, on-trend beach brides will be planning weddings where the fashion is as relaxed as the atmosphere, and the style leans towards vintage for a classic overall look.

Anyone that looks back over photographs from their past may cringe at the outfits they once thought of as the supreme height of style. Many women are guaranteed to have spent at least a few minutes shaking their heads over old photographs of disastrous perms and shoulder pads.

This is definitely not the way anyone wants to look back on their wedding pictures. So to reduce the risk of this happening, an increasing number of brides are coming out shining in classic, vintage ensembles that never go out of fashion.

Couples tying the knot in Thailand often face an extra challenge in finding something that hits all the right beach style notes, in addition to being timeless. However, there are a few easy tips that brides (and grooms) can follow to ensure their winter wedding in Thailand retains a simple beach chic vibe that will never go out of style.

Barefoot brides

Who needs shoes on a beach? There is no doubt that brides getting married on dry land in four-inch Christian Loboutins look elegant and fabulous. However, this look is simply not practical on a beach unless you are bride that doesn’t mind sinking four inches into the sand as you say your “I dos”. Instead, ditch shoes altogether and make the most of your beach wedding by feeling the talcum powder sand between your toes. Not only is this more practical, but it means you are able to dance the night away without the painful pinch of uncomfortable high heels.

Flower power

The balmy climate that smbraces Thailand from November to February gives brides the perfect excuse to trade in the traditional veil for a colourful flower crown. These natural tiaras can co-ordinate with the decorative blooms scattered around your wedding venue, as well as giving the ceremony a more laid-back feel. Furthermore, there are fewer things cuter than young bridesmaids and flower girls adorned in their own miniature blooms.

Bridesmaid rainbow

The perfect solution for brides who cannot decide on one theme colour for their wedding is to simply include them all. Whether you go for soft pastels or bolder hues, this look is particularly striking for bridal parties with a large number of bridesmaids. It also gives each bridesmaid the chance to feel unique and special on the big day, rather than one part of a matching group.

Vintage is back

While the creativity of today’s fashion industry leaves brides considerable room to make daring style statements, a growing number of brides are choosing to play it safe by reviving classic, vintage wedding dress styles. It seems even celebrities are following the vintage trend, including “Made in Chelsea” star Millie Mackintosh, who dazzled guests when she stepped out at her September wedding in an elegant, close fitting vintage gown.

All in the details

For brides set on making a style statement without getting too radical, fashion commentators have announced that 2013’s winter weddings will be all about bows. From bold back bows (as pictured) or intricate bows that add detail to the front of a dress – are all destined to be bit hits at the alter this winter.
