A beach wedding, whether held at an exotic destination or your summer getaway home, can be a great experience both for the couple and their guests. After all, it’s like a mini-vacation for everyone involved! However, pulling off a flawless event at the shore isn’t without its unique challenges. We tapped destination wedding designer Michelle Rago for her expert advice on the most important things to know when planning your nautical nuptials.
Stella York Bride
Real Stella York bride Megan’s Bahamas elopement is seriously so gorgeous, it has us packing our bags for the beach! Under tropical skies and with white sand beach between their toes, Megan and her groom Cody exchanged personal and heartfelt vows, promising each other a forever kind of love. For the big day, Megan wore a vintage-inspired ivory lace wedding dressthat capped off her romantic beach elopement perfectly.
From the bride: We were wed in an intimate, sunset beach ceremony attended solely by our photographer and her husband. We chose to elope for the ceremony simply to experience a wedding day away from the stresses of a traditional wedding. We wanted a day of simplicity, where the only thing to focus on was each other and the promise we were about to make in front of God. At the end of June, we celebrated with our loved ones at a bonfire reception on a beautiful farm and vineyard in southern West Virginia. Inspired by rustic and elegant elements, and SO much white, we created a reception that was truly “us.” The lanterns we scattered on the beach during our ceremony served as centerpieces on the farm. Everything about our wedding was elegant yet simple, which is exactly how I picture our “old-soul” kind of love. MyStella York dress (Stella York 5986) was one of the key pieces that satisfied both of those traits-it’s a timeless dress that I cherish. Looking back I realize that the big picture is only made beautiful if you focus your attention on the small details, everything will fall into place.

Ivanna took her search for a dress very seriously, she wanted something that would fit her personality and fashion sense but also something that wouldn’t wear her. She went to Julie Allen Bridals where the wedding consultant Jessica was able to understand everything she wanted. The MD175 was the last one Ivanna tried on after 15 dresses.
Ivanna loved the illusion back and unique detail this dress had to offer. It was light so she could dance the night away with all our friends and family.
“As you can see, we had a barefoot beach side ceremony and our reception was nearby with thirty of our closest friends and family,” said Paige of her Punta Cana destination wedding. “I can honestly say every element of our day was what we envisioned. A casual environment, good food, great drinks, and lots of dancing. Even dancing in a light rain shower after dinner was finished!”

David Tutera for Mon Cheri Bride
“Our wedding day was absolutely magical! I got to marry my best friend and the love of my life, and I got to do it in the most beautiful wedding gown I have ever worn – David Tutera for Mon Cheri 115251 – Blakesley from Kasia’s Bridal in Chicago. We had a traditional church wedding and a reception in a beautiful ballroom that overlooked the beach with glass walls so you could see the beautiful lake and gorgeous night sky.”
Amanda looked incredible wearing David Tutera for Mon Cheri Blakesley (Style No. 115251), a romantic A-line lace and tulle wedding dress with chapel length train. Her beautiful photos at the Illinois Beach Resort were captured by White Shutter Photography.

Stella York Bride
Drawing inspiration from Grand Central Terminal – the place they first met – Lauren and her husband, Johnny, created their dream New York wedding. Located at a gorgeous venue in the Hudson Valley, every detail was planned out, even down to the train-ticket-inspired escort cards. Lauren stunned in her Stella York wedding dress(Stella York 5865), and even though the weather wasn’t picture-perfect, her special day was.

They decided to tie the knot on May 2016 so they would have plenty of time to prepare everything. Her mom and her sister were already very excited to help her find the dress. They found a little store hidden between tall buildings and even thou she wasn’t interested in what was in display, they decided to go in anyway. The sparkles with the Eddy K wedding dresses 77963 were instant, it had everything she wanted in her wedding dress.
I adore when there is clear attention to details and I love it when something apparently discreet at first sight, unfolds into a thousand details. The lacing on the back perfectly tailored, the thoughful neckline with a slight touch of highlights, the diamond belt and the knot on the back, it all made it extremely difficult to take your eyes off the bridal dress. Every time I would look at it I would find yet another detail that would add a romantic, lavish touch.
I started following Eddy K’s Instagram page and I was convinced I had made the right choice. I was sure of it, it couldn’t have been any other designer, or any other dress.
Sophia Tolli Bride
“I had a festival themed wedding which had wellies for centerpieces filled with paper origami flowers. The table plan was a wooden sign post and the place names were VW Vans with wristbands clipped on to them. The cake and the wellies sat on artificial turf and we had a popular festival touring band as our entertainment. The day started in a church and then a boat took the guests to the venue. I purchased the beautiful ‘Sawyer’ Sophia Tolli gown from The Wedding Company in Plymouth, Devon (England).”
