Destination Weddings: The Packing List

Destination weddings are trending and people are oh so keen to get out of town and jet set off to an inspiring new location in the name of celebrating love. Whether a couple is deciding to chase summer for their wedding or try out a country town – you need a look (or several!) for all the out-of-town weddings that are just around the corner. It doesn't matter whether you are a bride, a bridesmaid or a wedding guest, your wardrobe and suitcase must be jam packed full of glamourous and location appropriate looks to wear. Our edit below will guide you to the best and most suitable looks for every kind of destination wedding.


The Countryside Escape

A vineyard destination, an outfit that calls for some chic cowboy boots and romantic dinners by the fireplace. This is a country destination wedding. The invitation says the Hunter Valley or Bowral and you need a country chic look that will tick all the boxes. When it comes to a country wedding you can go for a fun print or a more toned-down look with a jumpsuit number. Think lowkey and down to earth, but pieces that can also be dressed up for those who love a little glam.

The bride can wear the Ariella Gown and the wedding guest can dress in our Parker Jumpsuit, which would look flash with some country boots. The mother of the bride can sport the Serenity Dress and the bridesmaids will shine in our Samira Gown and our Natalia Gown.



The Laid-Back Island Vacation

Maybe it is Fiji? Or Hamilton Island? Or Hawaii? Either way you are off to a blissful island or beach escape and your wedding wardrobe must be stocked full of free-flowing numbers that can be worn with flats (or bare feet along the sand) and playful prints that contrast against bright island sunsets. Never be afraid to inject a little or a lot of colours packed into your island suitcase. We will give you all the best dresses for a beach wedding below. And when it’s a beach wedding a casual dress can also be always a good idea.

The bride will look ready for her beach nuptials in our Aerin Dress and the wedding guest can wear our oh so flowy Sahara Dress. The mother of the bride will dazzle and look a little more glam in the Odette Dress and the bridesmaids will look tropical in a floral print – try pairing our Ivy Dress with our Nadine Dress for the perfect mix and match look.



The European Extravaganza

If you will be sipping limoncello on the Amalfi Coast you need a chic and fashionable wardrobe for all you wedding events. Embellishments and feather trims are a necessity for your overseas destination wedding – you want to go all out with style and glamour because we all know it will be the party of the year. Dance the night away on the Italian seaside with a fabulous frock and you will steal the show.

The bride will steal the show with our Aura Dress – a whimsical look for the reception party, and the wedding guest will look spectacular in the January Dress. The mother of the bride will look effortlessly chic in our Lauren Dress and Sasha Cape and the bridesmaids will perfectly match in our ever so popular Nadine Gown.
