What to Wear for a Destination Wedding

There are few things more exciting than planning your wedding. This is true whether you’ve opted for a traditional ceremony or one that is entirely modern. Destination wedding planning is even more exciting because it is unique. In this style of wedding, the couple has selected one of their favorite destinations to be the backdrop for the event. Jamaica, for example, is one of the most popular of these selections.

We have recently read that every 1 out of 4 weddings in 2018 were planned as a wedding based on destination. Caribbean ceremonies are not only romantic to plan but to attend, as well. The bridal party and your attendees become guests in this adventure. They are considered when it comes to apparel, menus, and accommodations.

The bride and groom are the most important people on this special day. Choosing the right type of apparel is essential to making an impression. At the same time, it is necessary to factor in the climate of the destination. Jamaica has an average temperature of 80 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. This means selecting the right fabrics and colors to harmonize with an island venue or theme.

The Bride’s Gown

The wedding gown is the most looked at and noticed ensemble for the day. This is the case whether the gown is long and traditional or short and trendy. To harmonize with warm settings, many brides will select a different color gown from the typical white. Cream and pink colored gowns are being worn for these vacation-style weddings. It is permitted to consider warm temperatures with this design choice.

The Groom’s Tuxedo

The groom and his groomsmen will most often wear tuxedos. Fortunately, there are many fashionable and stylish tuxedo options out there. There are lighter fabrics that are extremely comfortable for these formal events. Some men will wear slacks-style shorts for their ceremony that match wedding colors. Destination wedding plans may include these modern apparel choices for the groom and his party.

The Family and Guests

Couples are alone on these wedding-focused trips. They are joined by the wedding party and their guests, which includes the family. Members of the bride’s and groom’s family will be along on this journey. The most important thing for these attendees is to find apparel that matches or compliments the colors for the event.

Even those attending the wedding will want to find apparel that is just right. This doesn’t simply mean the right color scheme for the theme. Light cotton fabrics or linen is recommended, whether you’re wearing a sundress or a suit. Graphic displays, such as floral prints look amazing at these ceremonies. It is important to keep the couple’s wedding colors in mind with your purchase.

Destination wedding venues are often outside in a garden or on the beach. Factoring stylish and comfortable accessories can be helpful when shopping for the right outfit. These may include hats, sandals, and sunshades. If this is an indoor venue, these accessories may not be necessary for the event. The ultimate goal is to join the happy couple on their memorable wedding event.
