I am getting married on a beach in the Indian Ocean. Could you please give some advice as to which kind of dress would be suitable and which shop would you recommend?
For a beach wedding in such a hot country I’d recommend something light and cool such as this lovely flowing Mon Cheri Destinations gown. There are some pretty short wedding dresses around at the moment too, like this modern gown by Dessy. An empire line dress can be loose and cooler to wear than a fitted bridal gown. You can see some stunning dresses in this Short and Sassy wedding dresses feature. Not sure if you’ll go for the last two though… And check out this Weddings Abroad Dresses feature which also has some great tips for travelling with your bridal gown – I love the sensational Stephanie Allin white strapless all-in-one!
