3 Things to Consider Before Packing For Your Destination Wedding
With traditional weddings, getting ready or putting things together for your venue isn’t quite the same as packing for a destination wedding.
You’ll have to consider your dress, welcome bags, honeymoon clothes, decorations, and favors for a destination wedding. If you don’t have a solid plan in place, packing itself can seem pretty daunting.
We say this because you’ll have to deal with excess luggage, run-ins with custom officers, and more.
So, consider these things before packing for your destination wedding, because you can’t possibly travel with everything you want. Not everything will be necessary.
For The Bride
Weddings are often the bride’s show (destination or not), so a bride will need to recollect her thoughts and figure out how to move all her relevant property from one point to the other.
The saying, “there are two kinds of luggage - the carry-on and the lost,” might seem like an exaggeration, but it isn’t. There’s truth in these words. So you mustn’t lose your wedding dress. That’s probably the most important item in your luggage. We advise you to carry it in either a heavy-duty bag or the bag it came in.
For The Groom
Like the bride with her wedding dress, the groom should also do the same or employ a simple folding; this would help fit into an overhead compartment. Any hotel’s cleaning (and ironing) service can always handle folds and creases from the folding.
For The Guests
Your wedding guests should get the invitation on time for the required dress code. For instance, a Bahamas wedding is typically more casual than a traditional wedding; guests will be expected to dress less formally.
Also, don’t expect your wedding guests to travel with wedding gifts; that’s not necessary. Many will prefer to send them to your home, so be mindful of that.
