Custom Vs. ‘Off-the-Rack’: Beach Wedding Dress Ideas to help your insecurities disappear
Designing dresses for destination brides for over 14 years, I’ve learned that it takes a woman a good 20 years to really figure out which styles, necklines and colors make her look her best.
Every woman has a unique shape and proportion to her body. She also has a unique style personality.
No two women are alike, yet in the last century we have been forced to buy mass produced designs and sizes that leave us feeling uncomfortable and awkward in clothes that don’t quite fit. Clothing designed without an actual woman in mind can’t possibly flatter you as well as a custom designed garment can. It’s like putting the cart before the horse!
Discovering and revealing your unique beauty with a custom designed, unique beach wedding dress made with a custom designed textile is the ultimate fashion experience. Your destination beach wedding is the perfect time for you to take advantage of the transformational magic that custom design can give you.
Beach Wedding Dress Ideas to fit YOUR body
At Jasmine Sky Designs, we combat the dreaded mass produced designs and sizing conventions with wrap-&-tie-on beach wedding dresses crafted from hand painted silks. These customised pieces ‘fit you’ in every way, rather than you having to ‘fit into’ their predetermined size and definition of beauty. Your island wedding dress will cater to your body shape, proportions, complexion and style personality… no one else’s.
Come and explore some solutions to the top 4 body issues that I see everyday. Here are some iconic island style offerings that can help ease your insecurities, empowering you during any tropical getaway.
Body Issue #1: Beach Wedding Dress ideas for full-busted island goddesses.
The Island Girl Bra is your ultimate solution for baring some skin while giving you the support you need and brides have told me it’s the most comfortable bra they’ve ever worn. It can be worn in both a strapless wrap as well as a lift-&-separate halter wrap. Moreover, if it is seen under your dress or top, it simply looks like a design feature of the dress rather than your underwear.
Now you can wear stunning bridal sarong ensembles like Aurora to flatter your bust and provide generous, yet hidden support thanks to the tie style Island Girl bra.
Body Issue #2: Beach Wedding Dress Ideas for Leg-shy island fashionistas
If you just don’t like baring your legs but you want to stay cool in the tropical heat, our long handkerchief hemlines are the perfect choice for your island wedding dress or honeymoon resort wear. With these hemlines, your legs will be covered plus you’ll enjoy lots of air circulation, keeping you cool in the tropical heat while maintaining the allure of relaxed elegance.
Palazzo pants are another iconic resort wear garment. If you prefer a dress to flutter in the tropical breeze with no concern of it surprising you by flying up over your head! Wear either our elastic waist or wrap-&-tie palazzo pants for an exquisite island goddess look.
As always, customizing each one of these looks with your choice of silk, color palette and hand painted art work will make it one-of-a-kind according to your very own tastes.
Body Issue #3: Beach Wedding Dress solutions if you prefer to conceal your arms
Island wedding dresses and honeymoon resort wear doesn’t have to mean exposed arms and decolletage. If you’re a modest madame, add an ethereal Body Veil or Butterfly Shrug to add delicate mystery to you island wedding dress or honeymoon resort wear without compromising on effortless elegance.

Take-Away: Accentuate the Positive!
We’ve focused on body issues, but the key to a design that will make those body issues disappear is one that will show off the parts of your body that you love while concealing the parts that you’re not so fond of! Each woman must find her own perfect style-balance for her body.
