Things to Consider for Your Mountain Wedding Dress


When looking at wedding dresses for a mountain wedding, be extremely mindful of the schedule of your wedding. The day of your ceremony will highly influence which dress will be perfect for your special day.

If it will be held during the summer, you want an off-shoulder neckline to avoid feeling too hot and getting sweat stains. If temperatures are low during your wedding, you may want to consider thicker fabric or incorporating a cardigan or jacket. 

How Much Hiking Is Required

Having a mountain wedding almost guarantees that a hike will be involved; the amount of hiking you need to do will depend on your venue. As such, make sure to consider the difficulty of the upcoming hike when choosing mountain wedding dresses. 

To ensure comfort during a hike, regardless of its duration, you will want a comfortable skirt that does not hug your form. You can also consider going for a pantsuit or jumpsuit instead.

While you are highly recommended to have a flowy skirt, you have more freedom when it comes to the bodice.

In the same vein, while trains are a highly popular detail in boho dresses, you may want to consider opting for a shorter train — or none at all — if the hike will be long. It may become a hindrance or hazard as you walk up the trail. If you are sure you want a long train, look into getting a detachable piece that you can attach once you are at your venue.

Features and Details

Some widespread features of mountain wedding dresses include the intricacy of their craftsmanship and the freedom of their fabric to move with the wind.

You may want to avail of dresses with excess fabric that can sway and flow whenever the wind blows. This will make for more stunning and memorable wedding photos.

Final Thoughts
