A tea-length hemline is also great for an informal ceremony and reception because it falls directly in the middle of formal and completely casual. This design also has a gorgeous cowl draping the back of the dress for an unexpected and elegant touch.
You can also look for an informal dress that has a simple yet interesting design element like a bow detail on the shoulder. We love the simple and understated elegance of this gown.
Shop for a dress that has some sparkles sprinkled throughout the bust to draw the eye upward toward the smallest portion of your body. A little sparkle goes a long way on this basic yet beautiful gown.
Another casual style that’s just fabulous, is a dress composed entirely of lace. A plain but textured dress adds depth and instant elegance to any look, without being over the top for a beachside celebration.
It looks especially chic when paired with a birdcage or fingertip veil that will gently blow in the ocean’s breeze as you walk down the aisle. This dress also provides some basic structure for brides who need a forgiving fabric to flatter their feminine figure.
