TH Personal Shopper: Wedding on a Beach
One of my husband's best friends is getting married next year in Hawaii, and the service will most likely take place on the beach. (We're flying there because my husband is going to be one of the groomsmen, but definitely offsetting!) I'm probably going to go with some strappy sandals I already own, but do you have any suggestions on what I should wear? I'm on the petite side and not a fan of loud, crazy patterns, but I don't want to look boring, either. If it's not asking for too much, I'd also like not to spend more than US$100.
—No muumuus, please We love this Alps dress by Twice Shy, made with 95 percent organic cotton and 5 percent Lycra. Available in your choice of 4 colors, this festive yet demure number will effortlessly take you from exchanging alohas by the surf to a luau under the stars. And at $80, it falls right within your budget.
You can also opt for attire with softer, more-traditionally feminine lines, such as Stewart + Brown's v-neck empire dress with fluttery cap sleeves and a raw-edged hem.
Now on sale for $94, the knee-length dress comes in a suitably tropical and vibrant orchid hue, and is made in the United States from 100 percent organic pima cotton.
And of course, we'd be remiss if we didn't remind you to remember the one vital accessory you'll want to have on you for your friend's big day: sunscreen.
