Take a look at these tips for finding the best destination wedding dress:

Planning a destination wedding tends to be a bit more difficult – but it is definitely doable. Aside from finding reliable vendors and aside from making sure everyone RSVPs, you should also consider the fact that a destination wedding will need a dress that’s suitable for that particular location.

How do you do it, though? How do you choose the perfect destination wedding dress? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

Do the research. Look at different types of destination wedding dresses and see which of the styles that appeal to you the most.  Don’t feel obliged to wear anything just because wedding etiquette “says so”. In fact, think out of the box and settle on styles that truly reflect who you are as a person. If you want a funkier dress with dashes of color, go for it. But if you want to be the traditional bride, you are definitely free to settle on long, white dresses as well.
Be wise. Consider the location you are getting married at and choose a style and a fabric that are suitable for it. For example, wearing a silk gown with a huge train may not be a great option if you plan on having a destination wedding.
Plan carefully. Once you have settled on a dress, make sure you talk to your vendor or retailer about the fact that you are having a destination wedding and that you will need your gown to be ready before you get on that plane.
Find a bridal salon at your wedding destination to have your gown steamed and press because shipping and handling on your way there might require it to be fresh when you get there.

These striped ideas will create a beautiful theme for your wedding day

Your wedding day should be about you – about you and your fiancé, about your love story and about the magnificent life you will build together. From the food to the music and décor, everything on your wedding day should be beautiful and it should match who you are.

Stripes are a great way to add just a dash of playfulness to your wedding day, without straying away from being stylish and elegant at the same time too. How to incorporate them in your wedding the most beautiful way? We have gathered some inspiring ideas – so read on and find out more.

Ceremony backdrop. Add just a dash of personality to your wedding ceremony backdrop by covering it in long stripes of fabric in different colors (e.g. your wedding colors, if you want everything to match, or a multitude of other colors if you want to be a bit more playful).
Naked wedding cake. Naked cakes are very popular these days – and they don’t necessarily have to be covered in fruit and flowers. For a striped naked wedding cake, we suggest you alternate layers of a colored cake (e.g. red velvet) with filling in a different color (white, for example). It will look really pretty!
Bridesmaids’ dresses. For your special ladies, choose dresses with a striped skirt design. Make sure to keep their entire attire simple, so that the stripes pop out and don’t make everything feel like “too much”.

Create your destination wedding with ease by knowing these tips

As we were saying in a previous post, planning a destination wedding can be a true challenge – but it will be worth all the effort when you and your guests will create amazing and unforgettably candid memories!

To help you plan a destination wedding that’s flawless from head to finish, we have gathered some more tips – so read on if you want to be well-informed on how to do this the right way.
Be careful with your budget. In general, destination weddings are considered to be more expensive than at-home weddings, so it’s really important to consider all those extra-costs. Otherwise, you might end up with a wedding bill and a headache once everything is over.

Be wise about the vendors. First of all, choose them very carefully. Check their reviews, have phone or Skype conversations with them and make sure you are really compatible with each other. Also, do make sure to understand that sometimes, things will move slower than you are used to – but that the right vendors will surely deliver perfection in the end.
Choose an attire that’s suitable to the weather.  A thick tuxedo or a dress made with heavy fabrics will not only look odd in the beach wedding picture, but it will be uncomfortable as well. Choose attires and fabrics that go with your destination’s weather!
Tell your wedding party about the destination before you ask them to play an important part in your wedding. Such a role can be expensive affair even when the wedding is not planned far from home – but when a destination is involved, it can really put a toll on your bridesmaids’ and groomsmen’s budgets. Be mindful about this and tell them about your plans before they say “yes”.
