Romantic wedding setup at the beach

What to Wear to a Beach Wedding

Beach weddings may be more casual than most, but that doesn't mean guests can't dress to impress. Here, our style editors have curated eight fashion-forward, sand-friendly outfits guaranteed to turn heads at any oceanside ceremony.

Floral mini + straw tote + heeled slides

You can’t go wrong with a dainty floral print this time of year, and the plunging V-neck adds some interest to this Faithfull The Brand frock. Block heel slide sandals are a must for walking through sand (don’t even think about stilettos!), and a straw tote lends a beachy feel to the ensemble.


Simple midi + trendy sunnies + statement mules

If you’d rather purchase a more versatile, wear-anywhere type of dress that you can sport after the wedding, go for this simple midi from Reformation. Lest you feel boring, we assure you: these pleated, printed leopard mules stand out in a crowd.


Tiered dress + hair scarf + shell jewelry

We love the way this yellow midi dress cascades down the body, and the polka dots only add to the fun. Finish with whimsical accessories like a sheer scarf tie, seashell jewelry, and slide sandals.


Printed jumpsuit + gold hoops + strappy sandals

Who says you need to wear a dress? This cool jumpsuit paired with classic gold hoop earrings and of-the-moment sandals will make you the coolest girl at the party.


Statement dress + metallic shoes + wooden clutch

Go all in with this chic Mara Hoffman number, with its voluminous sleeves and standout poppy shade. Muted metallic mules keep the focus on the dress, and a natural-colored clutch complements the look.



Linen mini + cat-eye sunglasses + wedge espadrilles

For a super casual (or super warm-weather) beach wedding, pick out a breezy linen material. Tall lace-up espadrilles and bold sunglasses add some attitude to the outfit.


Linen maxi + flat sandals + embellished bag

And if the ceremony will be a bit fancier? A long linen maxi will do the trick. Rock it with flat leather sandals and a shell-adorned straw purse.


Chiffon dress + ankle-strap sandals + gold jewelry

Dance the night away in this fluttery floral dress from Mango. Matchy white sandals and understated gold accessories keep the style sleek and sophisticated.
