Dreaming of a fairy tale wedding is normal for every woman. From when you are a little girl, you have this image of how you would be dressed for your wedding day. The perfect twilight setting, twinkling lights adorning the aisle as you walk down, the sound of the sea in the background, and the most beautiful flowing wedding dress; these are some of the images every bride-to-be has in her head. If you have somewhat of the same fantasy for your wedding and have decided on a beach wedding, then the perfect dress to accentuate your beauty and create an ethereal look would be a Grecian wedding gown.
Grecian wedding dresses have become extremely popular in recent times, especially because of the very fairy tale exotica that most weddings tend to prefer. These wedding dresses are feminine, flowing, and the perfect option for a beach wedding because of the light fabrics that are generally used for these gowns.
Grecian Beach Wedding Dresses
A wedding at the beach has become a statement of sort in the recent past. Many couples are opting to have their nuptials at a beach side instead of traditional locations. If the same is true for your wedding, then you need to be dressed to match the beauty of the occasion. Beach wedding dresses with a Greek influence can be perfect answers because not only do they provide the classic look that a wedding demands, but also give you that desired feeling of lightness and an angel like appearance. Most Greek style wedding dresses are designed in such a manner that they achieve a very Goddess like look which can be absolutely stunning. As a bride, there are many different designs and options that you can try out. We give you some of the most beautiful design options.
One Shouldered Dress
A classic style for a Grecian wedding dress is a one shouldered wedding gown with an empire waist that then drops down into a skirt that flows to form a long skirt with a circular trail. If you would rather opt for a dress that is slightly more form-fitting, then you could opt for a body hugging skirt instead of a flowing one. You could have a single layer of sheer Georgette over the skirt to give it a feeling of lightness.
Empire Column Gown
A popular option among Greek style wedding dresses is the column style of the sheath style. You could do well by opting for a column style wedding gown with an empire waist and a strapless top. If you want, you could opt for a long flowing skirt or go with a ruched and pleated structured look that can be a more modernistic option for a wedding gown that takes from Greek elements.
Cowl Neck Gown
Another great design for a wedding dress would be a full length gown with a cowl neck. A twist to this could be to keep the neckline simple and give the back a deep cowl neck look. Allow the top to gather up at the waist and let the pleats fall asymmetrically for a Greek Goddess look that could be hard to top. If you are looking for something slightly less structured, then you could add a long trail to the gown made entirely of tulle.
Halter Gown
This style is a slightly modern take on traditional Greek style. Opt for a heavily embroidered corset top with a halter neck that instead of tying up in the back is attached to skirt with a single column of fabric. Allow the skirt to be made of a free-flowing fabric. This creates for a stunning look that can be just what you need for your wedding.
These are just some of the more popular Grecian wedding dresses for a beach wedding. If you are looking for wedding dresses with sleeves, you could choose to opt for bell sleeved dresses with empire waists, but these are generally more reminiscent of the Renaissance period. Grecian wedding dresses are the perfect answer when you are looking for a dress that will make you look like a princess on your special day.
