If your bridesmaids are catching a flight (or two) to arrive at a chosen destination, chances are they won’t be packing any huge, heavy beauty products. Powder dry shampoo is travel-friendly and extremely useful for long-haul flights… and any post-wedding hair emergencies!

14. Travel accessories- eye mask, travel pillow, earplugs

Feeling uncomfortable on the flight over definitely isn’t the best way to kick off the festivities. Help your bridesmaids out by kitting them out with a travel accessories set full of everything they’ll need to have a comfy journey.

15. Luxury travel journal

Journalling is something we all intend on doing, but probably never get around to. Make it easy by gifting your bridesmaids a leather journal (complete with a fancy pen, of course). Bring along a polaroid camera and ask guests to take happy snaps – your bridesmaids will be able to scrapbook their fave moments from the entire experience!

16. International survivor kit

Going somewhere unfamiliar can be a little unnerving for some. Creating an ‘international survivor kit’ for your wedding destination is a thoughtful way of giving bridesmaids all of the info, recommendations and products they should have before touching down.
