Afternoon peeps and what a gorgeous one it is too!

In fact the weather couldn’t be more fitting for today’s post from the lovely Rachel of Bride By The Beach wedding blog. Forget those little black numbers ladies – 2014 is all about the LWD: pretty short white dresses that would look perfect on a sun kissed boho bride or bridesmaid. Would you dare to go short on your wedding day?

Rachel is the founder of Bride by the Beach wedding blog which is a beautiful amalgamation of all things beach wedding pretty. If you want to channel your inner sun-kissed beauty then Bride by the Beach is where you should be looking.

So without further ado, I am going to hand you over to Rachel and her tips on how to rock the LWD…..

Hello there pretty ladies!

Well let’s just say my life has kicked up a notch shall we! I’m in the final 10 weeks before W-day and life has gone mental. Not only are we trying to manically tick things of the to do list, squeezing in wedding dress fittings and working out like a beast to get into that bikini but we also stupidly decided to put our beautiful flat on the market. We are cray cray.

However, I have managed to cross of one of my things off the list – I’ve found my LWD (Little White Dress) that I’ll be signing the papers in here in the UK. Unfortunately you can’t get legally married in Ibiza unless you are Catholic and get married in a church or you are a resident of Ibiza. Since we don’t want to get married in a church and sadly do not reside in Ibiza, we’re having legal bit here first and have the proper “wedding” in Ibiza.

We’re not making a big deal of signing the papers here because in our minds we’re just signing a piece of paper but there’s no harm looking nice right?

I knew I definitely didn’t want a long dress but a short white lace dress would be perfect. I found these beauties in my search – what do you think?

Isn’t the lace to die for?! The Lola dress from Spell is twice the fun as I’ve seen it being worn with the low back on the front and it looked HOT.

If you wanted something a little more casual – what about flashing a lil of the shoulder?  I think a flash of skin on the shoulders can be incredibly alluring and ever so pretty. Teamed with a cute flower hairband and some chunky bracelets it’s the perfect boho bride dress.

How about a little late and little of the shoulder action a la this Marrakech Dress from Stone Cold Fox?

And what about bringing some colour to the day? Absolutely loving the brightness of the embroidery detail on this stunner from Freepeople:

And if that is a little too bright, how about this sweet number? Loving the subtle cutouts all over the dress.

If I had the money, I’d buy them all right now. Again, sorry I can’t show you mine, it’s a surprise for the Boy. All I will say is that it’s white and it’s short and I can wear it again on honeymoon. Bring on the sun!

Until next time lovelies xxxx
