How To Choose A Gown For A Destination Wedding

Do you want to say your vows on a tropical island, on the top of the mountain or glacier, or maybe in a beautiful European city? Whichever destination you choose, it is important that your bridal attire blends with the surroundings and matches the formality of your event.

A simple slip or cap-sleeved dress without heavy embellishments will look fabulous on a beach aisle, and the best types of fabrics are chiffon, lace and charmeuse because they are lightweight and crease-resistant. Intricate adornments, long trains, chapel veils and high heels are not ideal for exotic destinations, so why not organise an informal event and buy a simple dress that can easily fit into your suitcase!

However, if you are planning a formal evening reception at a lavish beachfront venue, your wedding dress should be formal as well. Duchess satin is the perfect choice of material for such an occasion because it has good structure, a pretty sheen and won’t crease.

When planning a wedding at a faraway destination, you need to make sure that your bridal attire is going to be safely transported. It is advisable to ask your bridal salon to help you with folding and packing of the dress, but also phone the airline you are flying with and reserve a space in the closet located in the first class cabin.
