Many couples plan to hold a beach wedding in this hot summer, because the cool sea wind may somewhat relieve the summer heat. For this purpose, many brides are busy picking suitable wedding dresses perfect for their beach weddings. Have finished your own dress, you need to find a proper one for your great mother. She is another focus in your special day.
Choosing beach mother of the bride dress should take convenience and comfort into consideration. So, you’d better choose loose silhouette, like empire. A-line one is also acceptable. Long close-fitting sheath dress should be avoided, because it is not convenient to walk on the beach. If your mother love sheath one very much, you’d better select a short sheath one for her.
As for fabric, I will recommend to use chiffon. Chiffon dress is soft and comfortable enough for summer. The fabric possesses natural grace, which may flow in the cool sea wind and look quite elegant. Some mothers may prefer slap-up taffeta and satin. They are also acceptable. However, long taffeta dress cannot be so easeful in a beach wedding, because it is not as lightweight as chiffon one.
In my opinion, short dress is more appropriate for a beach wedding. But, most mothers are not willing to wear a short dress to attend their children’s weddings. This is mainly because its lack of elegance. I won’t oppose if your mother insist to choose a long one. However, those with trains ought to be avoided. Otherwise, your mother or others are probably step on the train.
