Your wedding destination will play a major role in deciding on your gown for the big day, as you take into consideration the fabric, style, and ease of wear for that specific climate. Depending on the weather and your personal style, you might opt for a tea-length dress, or a more streamlined cut in an easy fabric. And of course, appropriate shoes for the terrain.
Our pick for a tropical, beachy wedding is the Dune gown from J. Crew Bridal in a pleated silk chiffon, with a cascading organza flower trim. The floor length cut will be easy to manage, while the breezy, flowy fabric will look effortlessly glamourous.
