For a bridal party that's headed out of town, these destination-approved bridesmaid dresses are as pretty as they are practical.

Bridesmaid Dresses for Beach Destination Weddings

Beaches are some of the most popular wedding destinations, and with good reason. The crashing waves, painting-like sunsets, and warm, vacation-y vibes make it fun for the whole guest list. When choosing bridesmaid dresses for beach nuptials, mind those hot temperatures. Opt for short or mini hems, halter or strapless necklines, and airy chiffons to keep them happy and breezy. A shorter hemline will also make sand or water a non-issue! If you do want your bridesmaids in long dresses, pick flowy skirts that they can wear with sand-friendly flats or sandals. And, of course, colors like canary yellows, papaya pinks and watery blues (or preppy stripes for a New England bash) will enhance the surfside charm of any celebration.
