If not, ladies might want to consider a wide brimmed hat as part of their wedding outfit to protect them from the sun.Will the wedding take place on the sand or in a wedding gazebo? Sandals or flip flops (which can be very stylish) may be more appropriate than high heels or closed shoes if walking through sand is likely.Is the wedding local or in an exotic location?
