Top Wedding Dress Designers For Beach Weddings

Written by Allison

We rounded up the top wedding dress designers for beach weddings so you can play it cool.

Who wouldn’t want to get married on a beach? Study this and our earthy wedding dress options guide and you’ll be golden. If you’re a beach-bride-to-be, picking your wedding dress will need to have a few extra considerations in mind. You don’t want a bulky ballroom dress with a cathedral veil that is going to be heavy and get destroyed by sand before you make it up the isle. The top wedding dress designers for beach weddings keep that in mind to create beautiful beach worthy dresses.

Nine top wedding dress designers for beach weddings

We love to share the love but couldn’t possibly rank them, in no particular order these are the best designers of beauty wedding dresses.

Alvina Valenta

Alvina Valenta wedding dresses are etherial and so romantic. Think lots of lace and layers. Although many of the dresses have a long train that may not be ideal for a beach wedding, there are quite a few gems in the Ti Adora collection that are perfect for strolling down your sandy aisle.

Maggie Sottero

The Sottero family has been making wedding dresses for five generations. Now with three different brand names (Maggie Sottero, Rebecca Ingram and Sottero and Midgley) nearly any bride can find a Sottero dress to love. Beachy brides should check out the Rebecca Ingram Olivia collection, or the Sottero and Midgley Malone collection for light and breezy beach dresses.


Watters and weddings go hand in hand. Chances are you’ve pinned more than a couple Watters dresses without even knowing it. The Azriel dress (pictured above) is a stunner for beach weddings, but their collections are so large you’ll have a hard time choosing just one.


ModCloth creates wedding dresses for budget conscious brides. They come in a whole range of different styles but boho dresses are a-plenty. ModCloth is also a great option if you are looking for a shorter wedding dress that actually looks like a wedding dress.


BHLDN, Anthropology’s wedding dress collection has many beachy wedding dresses along with mix and match separates. It’s a great middle ground between ModCloth prices and going full on Kleinfeld.

Karen Willis Holmes

Australian designer Karen Willis Holmes dresses are known for their high fashion appeal. The Wild Hearts collection is filled with minimalist, airy dresses that would look perfect on the beach or in a chic city wedding.


Chrisos wedding dresses run the gamut of OTT ballroom ready to casual to beachy, of course. This halter top dress, Mara, is a particular favorite.

Claire Pettibone

Claire Pettibone’s vision for bridal fashion is rooted in “vintage romance with an enchanted bohemian spirit”. Nearly any Claire Pettibone dress could work for a beach wedding (take a scroll, they’re all gorgeous!), but the California Dreamin’ collection is particularly well suited. All adorned with Coachella worthy layers of lace and a carefree vibe.

Lihi Hod

Designer Lihi Hod went from designing at Dior to building her namesake bridal brand. It’s no wonder her creations are fresh and high fashion. Lihi Hod dresses are something out of a dream. The 2017 collection is etherial, streamlined, and sexy.
