Weddings are back ON and traveling is making its way back into the plans of our 2021-2022 brides, and we could not be more excited for you all!! Destination weddings are one of the most incredible and memorable ways to celebrate your love and relationship while simultaneously enjoying a relaxing, fun and adventurous get away with the people you hold dear to your heart. If you are a bride planning a destination wedding in the future tune in for some fun veteran hacks Donna Beth Creations likes to pass along to all of their traveling brides!
First, and most importantly, do not let the fact that you are traveling detour you from purchasing the gown of your dreams! Let the experts help you with the practical side of things.
Keep your guest list to a limit that makes you comfortable! You do not have to invite everybody to such an intimate occasion, and it will keep stress out of the picture.
Plan ahead and make reservations as much as possible- inquire about insurance with all of your vendors!
Bring your carry on or a small/ medium duffel to your final fitting. Donna uses her special rolling technique to help stow your gown in a compact manner that helps limit wrinkles!
Bring a hand- held steamer… although your veil and gown are typically treated for wrinkles previous to being packed, a little backup never hurts, and chances are your bridesmaids did not think of this (your pictures will thank you!). If you can arrange ahead of time for your venue to lightly steam your gown prior to your big day for you that would be ideal.
If you are flying, bring your gown as a carryon!
SAFE.TY.PINS!! Oh the never-ending things safety pins can do for you on your wedding day! They can be used to hide or replace the hang straps of your gown on the day of, as a back- up for your bustle points or as a replacement button for a guest that got a little wild on the dance floor!
