When planning a wedding in Cyprus, many people wonder about choosing bridesmaids’ dresses that compliment the stunning scenery while taking advantage of the wonderful weather that the island has to offer.
At Weddings by Lordos, we understand the difficulty of choosing suitable bridesmaids dresses, so we’ve put together some hints and tips that will help you get it right.
The island of Cyprus benefits from its warm, Mediterranean climate through most of the year and, as such, Cyprus beach weddings tend to be hot. You will want your bridesmaids’ dresses to be made from a light, breathable fabric. Cotton is always a good choice, as are silk, chiffon, and rayon. Linen is another breathable fabric, but it's often not as delicate as the others.
Even the lightest fabrics can be constricting in the heat if they are too long. Why not consider a shorter dress length than you might have chosen at home?
Knee-length, or even midi-length dresses will help to keep your bridesmaids cool on a hot beach, and will allow them the chance to show off their summer tans and bridesmaids shoes.
While the comfort of your bridesmaids is an important consideration for your Cyprus beach wedding, you also want to get them to the island with as little creasing as possible. Cotton, silk, and tulle tend to travel well with little in the way of wrinkling, while chiffon can suffer from a bad case of creasing, even if handled with care. If in doubt, enquire about your bridesmaids carrying their dresses on the plane in a hanging bag.
Tones and colours
Here your choice is pretty much unlimited. You can go for bright summer colours so your bridesmaids are accented against a neutral beach, or you can choose to have them complement the bounty of nature by going for more muted tones like sand or dusty blue.
