Why should I consider a beach wedding?

If you are planning a warm weather wedding and have not yet chosen a venue, you have lots of great options that would be ideal for your event. However, one place in particular stands out. If you haven’t yet settled on a location, you may well want to consider the benefits of a beach wedding. Here are a few of the key reasons why you should think about a beach wedding.

Create something unique

Although you have probably been to plenty of weddings that were hosted inside churches and other similar venues, odds are good that you haven’t been to a lot of beach weddings — and neither have your guests. If you want your special day to be particularly unique and memorable, a beach wedding is sure to be an outstanding option. Long after your wedding day, people will be talking about your special event and how much they enjoyed it.

Enjoy a beautiful backdrop

There are few scenery options that are more beautiful than the rolling waves and the golden sand. If you are looking for a beautiful backdrop for your ceremony, you will have a tough time finding one that is better than getting married on a beach.

Give your guests a vacation

Many people spend a significant amount of money on traveling costs and accommodations to attend a wedding. If you have your wedding at a beach your loved ones are very likely to appreciate it. They can enjoy a mini vacation while they are attending your nuptials, which will help them get the most bang for their travel bucks. Plus, there are sure to be plenty of hotels, resorts, tourist attractions and more for your guests to enjoy along with your events.

Easy decoration

If you are unsure of where to start with decorating your wedding venue, you are sure to love how easy it is to decorate a beach venue. The natural beauty of the shore will make the need for decor minimal. Plus, for whatever amount of decorating you decide to do, you will have lots of tropical and beach-themed decor options to choose from. If you aren’t good at choosing wedding decor themes, it will be far easier when your basic concept is already chosen for you. Plus, there is plenty of pre-made decor out there that will work perfectly with a beach wedding, which can make things even easier for you.

It can be cheaper

Believe it or not, depending on your proximity to the shore, a beach wedding can actually be cheaper than a wedding that is held at another type of venue. Since you can host your wedding at many beaches without having to pay for the space and the decor-associated costs can be greatly reduced, you can save money on your wedding. Then, you can either stage your wedding for less money or put the extra into other aspects of the event.

More wedding dress options

When you get married on the beach you give yourself the choice to wear a beautiful, more traditional wedding dress or one that’s short and sexy and shows off the beach body or anything between the two. The top wedding designers all have stunning short dresses in their collections so you’ll have plenty of options to pick from if you decide to go that route.

New York Bride & Groom has an array of exquisite wedding dresses in our extensive selection. Come browse our popular designer lines and find your perfect beach wedding dress. You never need an appointment to shop with us so drop by anytime it’s convenient for you. Our staff of passionate and knowledgeable bridal assistants will be here ready to assist you during all business hours. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Go for a shorter wedding dress for summer

If you are planning for a summer wedding, you are obviously looking forward to enjoying the beautiful warm weather while you celebrate one of the best days of your life. The good news is that even if you are hosting a traditional wedding during the traditional time of year, you don’t have to opt for a traditional dress. Instead, why not go for a shorter wedding dress to match the season? There are plenty of beautiful, shorter styles out there so you don’t have to make any sacrifices to get exactly what you want.

Here are a few reasons why you should consider a shorter wedding dress for your sun-kissed summer wedding.

It’s cooler

A long, traditional wedding dress might be beautiful, but it can also be hot. This might be alright during other times of year or in an air conditioned venue, but you might want to choose something a bit cooler and more comfortable, especially if you live in a hotter climate. With a short wedding dress, you can especially enjoy an outdoor wedding without burning up.

It’s more casual

If you are looking to host a bit more of a casual wedding, such as if you are getting married outdoors or at a beach, then you might want something with a traditional, beautiful look that isn’t quite so formal. This can make a short wedding dress a prime option if you are getting married during the summer months.

It’s trendy

If you take a look at all of the wedding books and magazines that available everywhere these days, you’ll see that short wedding dresses are all the rage right now. If you want to do something a little bit trendier for your wedding, it’s a great idea to start by looking at shorter wedding dresses.

Show off your summer body

You may have worked hard to get a summer body and are proud of it. You might have been dieting, exercising, spray tanning and otherwise working on your appearance. You don’t want all of this hard work to go to waste if you can’t show off your tan and your fit legs as you walk down the aisle. Luckily, a shorter wedding dress will allow you to display just how great you look on your big day.

Enjoy a beautiful dress

Don’t be afraid of the idea of wearing a shorter wedding dress. There are a lot of great options out there that are still very beautiful and very classy. Before you assume that a longer, traditional wedding dress is your best choice, you should at least consider trying on a few shorter dresses. You might be surprised by some of the gorgeous gowns that all of the biggest and best designers have come up with.

As you can see, a shorter wedding dress can be the perfect option for your summer wedding. You should definitely come take a look at some of the gorgeous short dresses we have available at New York Bride & Groom. We will help you find the ideal garment to make you look amazing for your sunny summer wedding. Don’t forget that you never need an appointment to shop with us, so we look forward to seeing you at your convenience.

New York Bride – Modern wedding gowns

Fashions from New York Bride & Groom were prominently featured recently on WCCB TV’s News Rising, a weekday morning show for the Charlotte metro region. The segment focused on modern wedding looks and featured three NYB&G pieces: two gorgeous wedding dresses and a dapper tuxedo.

The spot kicked off with Rising‘s Runway Coach Jennifer Michelle spotlighting a super trendy Tony Bowls tux from our New York Bride & Groom tuxedo rental department. Speaking for brides everywhere, Michelle observed about the slim fit suit, “This is when you’re walking down the aisle and you see him standing there and you know you made a great investment.”

Next up was a stunning ballgown from our collection. Michelle particularly noted the layers of tulle around the lower portion of the dress which added dramatic beauty. The jeweled headpiece, taken from our New York Bride wedding accessories department, was also highlighted. In addition to this particular piece, we carry a full range of fashion accessories at New York Bride & Groom that includes headpieces, veils, belts and jewelry.

The final look from our shop was a mermaid style wedding dress that would cause a sensation coming down any aisle. The back features a zipper for easy in-and-out, but it’s concealed by an elegant button treatment that looks much more sophisticated. Beautiful organza creates the flare at the knee, while the custom-made NYB&G veil balances the proportions on top.

All in all, for the uninitiated the segment was a good introduction to our bridal shop. The only way to truly appreciate our vast and beautiful selection of wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, tuxedos and bridal accessories, is to visit our 15,000 sq.ft. luxury salon and see it firsthand. We never require an appointment to shop, feature more than 20 dressing rooms and we’re always fully staffed with knowledgeable bridal consultants waiting to assist you. We look forward to seeing you soon.
