Your hair and makeup can be simple and natural so that it fits your outfit nicely.
For footwear, you can keep add a formal touch by choosing dressy sandals or flats that will be comfortable for walking on the sand but are not as informal as flip flops. Nautical jewelry can make for nice beach themed accessories. A simple, light colored handbag or clutch will fit the occasion nicely.

A brightly colored tank top with a light cotton skirt will look lovely. Such a simple outfit offers a casual, yet wedding appropriate style that will have you looking your best.

“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
