Dreamy Destination Wedding Dresses for 2012

Soft textures, delicate fabrics, and beautiful embroidery are just some of the ingredients that make up ethereal destination wedding dresses. If you’re getting married at an exciting tropical getaway but unsure about what wedding dress to wear, consider some of these ideas.

Who says you can’t wear ball gowns to the beach? A dramatic wedding dress like this stunning A-line gown by Monique Lhuillier can be worn for a seaside affair, as long as it has delicate textures and made of breezy fabrics like chiffon.

Summer in the tropics can make your skin crawl from the heat. Keep your cool in a lightweight sheath dress with interesting details like a pleated skirt or floral bodice, similar to the ones on this gown by David Fielden.

Brides-to-be who are more comfortable in long sleeves can give their preferred gown a tropical twist by adding a large slit, or making sure that the sleeves are made from Chantilly lace or chiffon.

Channel your inner hippie in a breezy dress like this silk-chiffon sheath gown from J Crew.

This silk-charmeuse gown by Claire Pettibone is another great example of beach-worthy ball gowns. The light tulle overlay is beautifully embellished with silk-satin petals and finished with a glamorous antique-gold waistband.

Brides who prefer a more traditional look over a bohemian one can wear a traditional mermaid gown with simple accessories.

Consider adding a subtle touch of color to your ensemble. This gorgeous mermaid gown by Reem Acra is made of peach and ivory lace and topped with organza flowers.
