The sun is shining, your toes are in the sand, and waves are crashing on the beach — no, you’re not on vacation, you’re getting married! Beach weddings are a popular choice for many couples, and for good reason: you don’t need too much decor, there’s almost always all-inclusive package available at oceanfront resorts, everything is a bit more relaxed, you can jump right into your honeymoon after you say “I Do,” and more. But one of the biggest perks? Getting to wear a beach wedding dress that looks equally as beautiful on the sand or in a ballroom.
