So you’re going to get married at a stunning location abroad. Congratulations! Now, getting married in another country, for most people, comes at a price. They need to downsize the number of invited people (or they can use it as an excuse to not have to invite people they don’t really know that well ;) ), have to look for vendors in a place they’re not that familiar with and sometimes it means to not be able to have older relatives attend your wedding. One thing that doesn’t need to suffer is the choice of a wedding gown. You can take it with you as hand luggage (do check with your airline!) and their are some how to video’s of how you can safely pack your gown in your luggage on youtube. But for some brides there is no need to take extra measurements to take their bridal gown with them. They didn’t want a big poofy dress to begin with or they choose to go less big because they are getting married abroad. Wether your in the first or the second category, here are some stunning wedding gowns that are perfectly easy to take with you to your destination wedding location.
Browsing the BHLDN website is always a good idea. They have a whole section especially filled with items that are perfect for a beach wedding or on honeymoon or you could find your destination wedding dress there. It has the magical name “Swept Away Collection“.
We love Emily Riggs Bridal and this Seraphina and Delphina dress are perfect in any location as well as on your destination wedding. If you would you like to step away from the traditional white they beautiful colored designs as well. Unfortunately the photos on their website are not for repost but we urge you to take a look at their stunning gowns.
Another favorite is Temperley London. The two dresses shows here are the Marcy and the Peri Dress.
If your looking for lots of detail in your wedding dress, the website of Sarah Janks is really worth a browse. For example the Evaline has ‘hand-beaded vines and la petit fleurs appliqué’, while the Gia gown has a hand-beaded bodice.
If you buy your dress online you really have to be careful. But if you go for it Etsy has become the marketplace for anything bridal. Take a look at Maisy, a chiffon and lace v-neck wedding gown or the Dip-dyed Taylor dress by of our favorite Etsy sellers Truvelle.
Still haven’t had enough of the destination wedding proof wedding dresses? Here are some more tips:
Free people sells bridal gowns as well. For example this Lilian gown by Odylyne the Ceremony, we recently had the opportunity to shoot in a beautiful ancient church in Greece. Results of that shoot are coming soon ;)
Reformation sells a lot of dresses that would be perfect for bridsmaids but if you are looking for a dress that is a bit simpler they sell white dresses that could be perfect for you. Like this Constance dress in ivory.
