    I had a beach wedding and there were a lot of maxi and knee-length dresses, either in pastels, bright colours or floral / summery prints, most were a chiffon-type fabric.

    Where is the wedding, will it be really hot?

    I would wear a maxi dress with gorgeous flat sandals, lots of bangles and a pair of huge sunglasses. Pretend you are a celebrity in st tropez!

    I'd say a long pastel maxi dress with some strappy sandals.

    Thanks again for the suggestions everyone.

    The wedding is on the Gold Coast, so it's going to be getting pretty warm by October. I thought a maxi would be a bit casual for a wedding? The reception is at the Currumbin Beach SLSC - the invite hasn't stated if it's coctail or sit down dinner - not sure if that would make a difference to dress code though (haha I'm clueless, have been to like 2 weddings in my life!).

    A maxi dress in a silky floaty fabric would be perfect for a Gold Coast wedding.

    If the reception is at a SLC and the wedding it on the beach I don't think a nice maxi dress is going to be too casual.

    I'd also avoid anything that needs to be worn with heels, because heels and sand aren't a great combination!

    Yeah I like the idea of sandals/ flats (will be lumping around a 6mo baby aswell). I assumed if I wore heels I'd just go barefoot on the beach and put them back on at the reception.

    The only problem with that is if the sand is hot - you might need some flats to pop on regardless?
