CARIBBEAN WEDDING WEAR
If you are wondering what to wear to a Caribbean wedding, whether as a Bride, Groom or guest, be assured that tropical wedding fashion runs the gamut from the comfort and simplicity of bare feet with sand between your toes, to the lavish elegance of Top Hats and Tails!

Beach weddings in Barbados tend to be causal but stylish with couples pulling out all the stops to use tropical themes and colors to accentuate dresses suitable for a Caribbean wedding. After all, every bride wants to look spectacular on her special day, and ‘wow’ as all eyes are on her! A Beach can be a formal or casual place to wed, add a rich red carpet, or run barefoot in the sand… the choice is yours, simply couple this with appropriate attire. The twenty first century beach wedding is a far cry from the assembly-line approach of the 1990′s and destination weddings in Barbados have come a long way, as have bridal dresses for Caribbean weddings, taking more inspiration from ready-to-wear catwalk trends. Softer looks with Grecian draping, and ‘boudoir’ fabrics such as chiffon are very much ‘in’ 2011, and are also more suited to the tropical climate, apart from being wrinkle-resistant and easier to pack than a huge ‘multi-bowed, puff-sleeved dress’.
