Karen Bussen picks her favorite styles for your beach wedding!

Written by Karen Bussen
Entertaining Expert

Whether you see yourself barefoot on soft sand or glammed up and strolling down a tropical garden path toward the ocean, your dress--and you--will be the center of attention at your destination wedding. You'll be framed by sea and sky, and you'll want lightness and movement in what you wear.

My favorite stylist and bridal style expert, the inimitable Ani Hovhannisyan has helped me select some downright gorgeous looks, and we're sharing them here with you! We hope you'll find inspiration for your own perfect ensemble. Don't forget natural accessories--hair flowers, greenery crowns, arm bracelet corsages, and the latest in stunning bouquets--to complete your mood.
