Those of you who've attended beach and Fiji weddings....

What did you wear?

Just thought I may as well ask all you lovely helpful peeps.

I've never been to a beach wedding before and I'm thinking of wearing a nice maxi dress with either nice flip flops or gold flat sandals.

Here in the UK, folks do tend to dress up for weddings, but I've noticed in NZ in particular, guests dressed more casually. (We were lucky enough to have two wedding celebrations, one here in the UK and another in NZ).

All the guests I have seen at beach weddings in Fiji have been in dressy but casual either short or long dresses - both looked appropriate - a maxi would be my preference and nice casual slipon sandals or flash flipflops for your feet.

Have a great time!

Hiya DoryBlue and thank you!

Really looking forward to travelling to Fiji and of course our friends wedding too. I've got a couple of maxi dresses that I'm going to pack and will decide on the day! :-)

Hi Pinky Kiwi71

Agree with Dory Blue. Have been to 2 weddings and just wore a knee length dress and flash plain coloured jandals/flipflops.

Filpflops!!?? No one told me that.....and I was the bride! lol

My 'footwear' was my purple nail polish to match my purple dress :) Yes I know...purple....very nontraditional. But hey I had the white. My 2 lovely daughters wore white instead :)

But love the idea of a maxi dress and flipflops! Perfect.

Have been to a few and witnessed many only a few got 'dressed up' most opted for dressy casual or lovely sarongs guys nice shorts with shirt is fine, long trousers look a bit weird unless they are beach style pants with bare feet.

have a wonderful wedding! have you chosen a location? that'll be your next mission, now that you have your beautiful outfit sorted :) i agree the nailpolish and lovely braclet and necklace would set off your island style outfit. as for location, i would look at the waterfall at boro's village called biausevu village on the coral coast. it's something really lovely and unique.679 8344164 or else a lovely beach setting at sunet..
