Choosing the perfect wedding dress is an amazing experience. For many women, it's the one time they have to splurge on a beautiful gown. Finding 'the one' is no walk in the park, and for brides getting married abroad it can be that little bit trickier!
When choosing a dress for your destination wedding it's important to take into account things like the climate of your destination, how it will be packed and whether the style of gown will suit your surrounds.
Think about your ceremony location when selecting your dress. There’s not much point have a stunning ball gown if all it’s going to do is make weigh you down and stick to the sand.
Warm weather and outdoor weddings call for soft silhouettes and lightweight, breathable fabrics like chiffon, natural silk dupion, organza and tulle. Besides their ability to keep you cool, they also have the added benefit of catching the breeze beautifully!
The transportation of your dress to your destination of choice is a key task and a vital errand that often isn’t considered until the last minute. It’s important to plan ahead and treat your dress like precious cargo, because you don’t even want to consider the repercussions of a lost bridal gown!

Most boutiques recommend hanging your gown in a garment carrier bag and alerting the airline at check-in that it requires a hanging space.
Ultimately though, your dress should be a reflection of your style. It’s your party so you should wear what you want to!
