These casual, comfortable and relaxed styles make great options to pack with you for an elopement or full on destination wedding.
Style 2281 Forsythia
If you are all about lace wedding dresses, Style 2281 Forsythia makes a great lacy option for beach brides, with its breezy comfort created by a combination of light perfecting satin and cotton lace appliques. Beautiful without being fussy, Style 2281 is available in a Caramel/Nude/Ivory color combination that is reminsicent of sandy hues, making it a perfect beach gown.
Style 2252 Hyacinth If Forsythia is a little too delicate for your taste, give Hyacinth a try. Similar in color combination and the strapless, sweetheart, fit and flare silhouette to 2281, Style 2252 contains a heavier textured, larger scale lace pattern, along with an illusion back. As the Hyacinth bride strolls through the sand and surf, the beaded belt will catch the sun and sparkle magnificently.
Style 1979 It only makes sense that our Exotic Escape collection would containt plenty of getaway wedding gowns, and Style 1979 is no exception. With the low, open back, exposed shoulders and halter neck silhouette, this dress is ready for a wedding by the ocean.
Style 2241 Heather Speaking of halter neck wedding dresses that are perfect for a summer wedding, Style 2241 Heather is another great option. A two piece silhouette is the perfect bridal style for the beach, but if exposing a touch of midriff is not your thing, you can always take a leaf out of Casablanca Bride Carol's book, and customize your Style 2241 to be a one piece gown instead.

Casablanca Bridal 2169S ends above the knee, but the short hemline is balanced out by a long lace sleeve.

Style 2153 The patterns of the floral Gossamer lace of our low back wedding dress Style 2153 are almost tropical in their shape and silhouette, and the beautiful plunging V-neck would be right at home in the surf and sand. Casablanca Bride Allison can attest to this being a great option for a destination wedding, as she wore her customized version for her Mexico resort ceremony.
Style 2172 Style 2172 is the gown for brides looking for a spaghetti strap, empire waist beach wedding gown. The lightly beaded bodice will sparkle in the sun, but the soft tulle and silky charmeuse keep it perfectly lightweight enough. Casablanca Bride Stacey had such a romantic destination wedding in her customized 2172!
