If you have visions of oceanside nuptials but haven’t quite found the perfect wedding dress, you’re in the right place. Ahead, we’ve curated the best beach wedding dresses, all perfectly suited for a ceremony in the sand. If you’re going for a boho theme, consider a flowy dress or a sleek crochet option. If your special day calls for a more formal dress, try a polished, refined satin midi that will move gracefully against the backdrop of the waves. Or maybe you’re a free spirit who likes to make your own style rules? A sexy beach wedding dress or a cutout style might capture your adventurous side while still looking chic and elevated. No matter what kind of ceremony you’re going for, you’ll find the right dress here.
From the classic to the romantic, we’ve rounded up a wide range of gowns perfect for beachside vows. Ulla Johnson’s organza midi dress and Jonathan Simkhai’s chain-embellished halter maxi are ideal choices if you don’t want a white wedding dress. Ronny Kobo’s cutout dress and Mia’s open-back midi make an unconventional statement, and the Significant Other one-shoulder midi is demure yet stunning.
Scroll through our list of the 22 best beach wedding dresses to find the style that suits you best — no matter where your oceanside nuptials might be.
