Dubai wedding blog full of inspirational weddings, fashion and all things pretty for expats getting married in or from Dubai and the Middle East.
Beach wedding style
We are on the brink of the Dubai wedding season and with that in mind I have put together some moodboards for wedding guests. It always feels slightly strange here that when you need your summer wardrobe the shops are full to the brim of the winter collections.
Beach weddings are by their very nature often relaxed affairs and as a guest you can take complete advantage of this. Here are some of my ideas for beach wedding looks:
The maxi was made for beach weddings. Loose and elegant, it hits all the right notes. This bright maxi is particularly chic and from our very own Boutique 1. With an obviously large amount of time being spent on the sand, wedges are often a god-send and these Jimmy Choo ones are both beautiful and practical. The whole look is accented with sun kissed gold and these Victoria Beckham shades are a particular favourite.
Short and sweet
A short and floaty number screams beach chic and this one from H&M hits all the right notes whilst saving vital pennies. Teamed with Greek sandals and a statement bag – my latest crush is this structured shoulder bag from Victoria Beckham (there goes the saved pennies). As beach weddings often mean spending a lot of time outside in the blazing sunshine, a hat or some kind of shade is vital which is why I’ve added this fedora hat to the look.
Elegant and formal
As all expats here in Dubai know, a beach event does not always automatically mean a relaxed day is in order. This look is for the smart beach wedding. I won’t lie, this look evolved around the shoes for me – studded Valentino’s…my heart melts. Next came the bold but classic dress and a timeless bag finishes the whole thing off perfectly.
