Beachside bridal-A A +A
Thursday, June 12, 2014
MANY brides long for a romantic wedding by the beach. Soft sand underfoot, a salty breeze, and a gorgeous sunset in the horizon offer a more natural and relaxed feel than an indoor black-tie affair.
For brides who are granted their wish of this dream venue, a beautiful, beach-appropriate wedding dress is necessary. These bridal dresses by Jun Escario are the perfect pieces to put the spotlight on the bride, ensuring that she looks stunning and stays comfortable all throughout the reception.
With a beach front’s casual but elegant ambiance, the bride can wear something more revealing yet refined. A dress in matte jersey and stretch tulle is almost mermaid-like with its cutout bodice and fine floral appliques. Its long and light train is a lovely contrast to the dress’s form-fitting silhouette.
A wedding by the beach is the perfect setting for a backless gown. Beadwork on the shoulder straps and minimal embellishment on a subtly gathered waist are just enough detail on a dress that reveals most of the back. Italian silk falls flawlessly to the ground, for a dress that is cool to the eye and is easy for the bride to wear.
Another stunning, back-baring gown is made of metallic jersey, with stretch lace accentuating the shoulders and framing the back. The low dip is daring and sexy, especially with a close fit. Delicate buttons adorn the nape and the length of the skirt.
Neoprene isn’t the first fabric that comes to mind for a wedding dress, but works wonderfully in Jun’s execution. On this gown with a deep V neckline, the fabric with its clean shape lends no hint of its rubber-like texture. The dress is paired with a bolero-like jacket, also made of neoprene.
The long, luxurious tulle skirt is beautifully embroidered, with white flowers attached all over instead of flat appliques.
For another unique bridal look, a one-shoulder dress is both Grecian and modern. This one-shoulder piece softly billows out to one side while fitting more closely to the body on the other. The shape and cream color need little more than some accents on the shoulder.
Wearing one of these creations, a bride is sure to keep all eyes on her, as she and the groom have eyes only for each other on their romantic wedding by the beach.
