A Beach Affair

My sister is planning a wedding this fall at an as yet undecided destination that will surely have a sandy beach. She sent me a few dress options which got me thinking about suitable gowns for a beach wedding. Simple, more informal gowns made of soft and flow-y materials immediately spring to mind so a quick browse at David's Bridal and J.Crew online yielded these candidates:

7. 8. 9.
My favourite of the bunch has gotta be #7. Incidentally, first 6 dresses from David's range in price from $119 to $399. I didn't know it was possible to get a bridal gown for that little. Perhaps I've watched too many episodes of Say Yes to the Dress, where bridzillas can spend tens of thousands of dollars on a gown they'll wear just once. I'm glad to see that there are gorgeous, affordable options out there although one would have to take a chance shopping online.

My plans to fly out to Vancouver in March for a visit with my Piglet now includes dress shopping with my sister! I'm so looking forward to the the trip, never mind the shopping for my own MOH dress. :)

#7's beautiful!
BCBG is another shop you should check out - they oftentimes have really lovely white dresses similar to the ones here. I got my first dress there (from the resort wear collection) and it was so beautiful! Until a seamstress botched it...So I had to buy another one :(
