For a civil wedding?

Hi! I would like your comments. For a civil wedding is it okay to wear a long dress or it has to be short? Im going to have a beach wedding in the afternoon so I would love any ideas. I want to look gorgeous for him but Im still deciding what to do!

Any advice please! Thank you!

What do you think about this dresses?

  • You wear whatever you want. You're the bride.

  • I think you can whatever your heart desires. It is your wedding. My concern would be the location. You do not want to ruin your dress.

  • How you dress it completely up to you.

    But, I think something like this is cute for a beach wedding:

  • My nephew got married on the beach. His bride and all the bridesmaids wore floor length gowns and sandals. The bottoms of their dresses definitely dragged and got a little dirty, but they didn't care.

    Definitely follow your heart and congratulations!

  • I've seen everything from full on bridal gowns to medieval costumes to tshirts and jeans. Your wedding, wear what you want.

  • Thanks for all your comments and support. Thats a lovely dress inspired by Marilyn Monroe. I would love to find a dress like that.

  • Do what makes you happy! I like both dresses you posted but the one on the right allows you to do a little more with a necklace and I love the criss-cross at the waist.

  • I would wear something shorter for a beach wedding, and not too formal.
