The Art of Packing Light for Your Destination Wedding

In Planning, Planning & Tips by Ande TongcoLeave a Comment

Amongst the excitement of having your wedding at a spectacular destination, is the fear of how it will all fit into your suitcase!

It is your special day after all so don’t limit yourself too much, but there is nothing worse than lugging around copious amounts of luggage when all you want to do is relax as soon as you set foot off that plane. With these beautiful and versatile products, you will have a head start in packing minimally.


The most important item of all is of course the gown. This is one of the best creations we have seen here at Great Destination Weddings: the Moana-Molly gown can be worn in three different ways – how versatile!

Of course walking down the aisle is the most important… And just how beautiful is this dress! The pearl illusion neckline is completely detachable, which changes the look completely to suit you and your wedding.


The billowing ball gown skirt is also detachable which completes the main frock transformation. This is the perfect little number to party the night away whilst still standing out of the crowd as the stunning bride in white!


The shoes. Now we all know that the shoes are almost as important as the dress. These stunning french silk heels perfectly hit two birds with one stone. Obviously playing an important role of supporting your feet down the aisle, they also can be used as that ‘something blue’. Who wouldn’t want to walk down the aisle in these beautiful creations from Panache.

For a relaxed beach wedding, if you really don’t have room in your strategically packed suitcase, you can even ditch the shoes altogether! For a simply beautiful beach wedding, invest in the divine Barefoot Sandals by Redki to save some room in your case for other important wedding essentials.

Without sacrificing any of the masses of clothes and accessories you might need during your wedding vacation, do your research and arrange your vendors overseas in the destination of your wedding. This saves you bringing the whole wedding with you on the plane! Most of our vendors listed on Great Destination Weddings understand the struggle of organising a wedding overseas and they help you out as much as possible by including a lot of the wedding decor within your package.

The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah in Ubud offers a ceremony package including a beautiful white wedding alter complete with floral arrangements, traditional Balinese flower girls, sound system, welcome drinks and bouquets, as well as arranging your reception for you! The perfect option for you to plan your destination wedding.
