Destination Wedding – What to Pack

Getting married abroad is an exciting prospect and one that is filled with lots of planning. Being more than a holiday there are lots of extra bits and pieces you need to remember to take with you. If you are planning your destination wedding then check out our list of some key extras you might want to think about.

Destination Wedding – What to Pack

Wedding Outfits

Wearing a short wedding dress for your destination wedding is a great idea. The vintage style wedding gowns are versatile and lightweight so travel well. Remember to pack your wedding dress properly for the travel in a special box or bag.  Make sure your groom also packs his attire using suit bags and has any ties and shoes he needs.

The Mikado tea length wedding dress has a wonderful bateau neckline that oozes elegance. With classic lines and simple detailing this is such an understated glamorous look. Ideal for hot or cold climates this destination wedding dress should be considered a must have.
Don’t forget wedding underwear that you need for the day and shoes. Any special makeup you are taking as well as wedding jewellery. Including a little emergency kit including plasters, cotton & thread and wipes is a great idea too.

Bridal Party Presents

Any presents for bridal party that you have attending need to be packed. Also any favours you may want could be purchased locally if you have time or taken in advance. If you are sharing presents with your spouse then you may want to pack this separately. Don’t feel like you need to have presents either, a simple handwritten place card or a thoughtful note is just as nice.

Wedding Decor

If the venue are providing a wedding cake, you may want to personalise it. So taking a cake topper or anything that is personal to you. This also could be extended to a guest book – which is lovely if you are having an intimate wedding or a big wedding.
Any cameras you are taking, make sure you have an empty memory card and batteries. Ask guests to take lots of photo’s if you aren’t having an official photographer.
