Planning A Destination Wedding? 4 Accessories You’re Going To Need.

A destination wedding is becoming more popular as the costs of a wedding at home begin to rise. Destination weddings don’t just give you the wedding in the sunshine that you dream of, but a two for one deal with a built-in honeymoon.

It doesn’t matter how you came to the decision of a destination wedding: whether dreamed about or impulsive, you’re on your way to the beach to say your vows!

Planning a wedding can be hard regardless if you will have it at home or abroad, but if you pay attention to the smaller details, your bigger things to organize will all seem to fall together.

Finding the perfect wedding package is your first step, and for inspiration look at sweethawaiiwedding.com today. Once you’ve done that, you can focus on your dress so you’ll know the rest of the accessories that you will need.

So, what accessory details will you need to take into consideration for your destination wedding day, compared to the wedding that you could have had at home?

1. Shoes
When you walk the aisle in your choice of venue at home, you can be pretty certain that the heels you’ve chosen for under your dress will keep you steady, as the surface you’re walking on is steady. Going abroad could mean a beach wedding or a wedding on grass. You’ll need sturdier shoes but want to keep them pretty. A pair of wedges like these could be the perfect footwear for an outside wedding – failing that, barefoot on the sand sounds pretty amazing to us! If you’re off somewhere cold, why not custom-design some Wellington boots such as these?

2. Jewelry

Pearls are classic bridal jewelry, and they are never out of place at a beach wedding considering pearls come from the ocean. Go for silver or white gold or even platinum jewelry for a destination wedding; the sunlight will dance off of it and make your entire look shimmer.

3. Purse/Bag

You don’t see many brides carrying a purse or bag at their wedding, but a small clutch for you and your bridesmaids to carry is the perfect accessory for any wedding. For a beach wedding, you’ll need to top up your sunscreen or keep sunglasses handy during the day, (and no matter where your wedding takes place, you’ll want some lip gloss handy). No need for a huge tote, a clutch is perfect.

And if you decorate yours with a blue flower or broach, you’ve got your “Something Blue”!

4. Bouquet

It’s unlikely that the bridal bouquet that you had carefully crafted at a florist and paid good money will last the journey to the destination you are having your wedding. Instead, have an artificial bouquet made that you can easily box and fly over to where you are getting married. It will save you the trouble of needing to take the time to organize it when you arrive, and you’ll still have a hand in the design before you go.

A destination wedding doesn’t mean that you have to compromise the accessories that you have so long dreamed about. It just means you’ll need to make some adjustments to fit the surroundings, so your wedding can be as beautiful as you imagined.

Oh, these destination wedding accessories tips will still work great even if you’re having a non-destination wedding!

3 Tips For Choosing Accessories For Your Wedding Day

3 Tips for Choosing Accessories For Your Wedding Day

Planning the details for your wedding day can take up almost every waking minute of your life. However, don’t forget that for your special day you need to prepare yourself, too. You need to decide what jewelry and accessories to wear on your wedding day. This creates some more decisions, so here are some tips to make it easy to pick out the right jewelry and accessories.

Don’t Wear a Watch

This one is simple – don’t wear a watch. It doesn’t matter if you have a lovely watch, and of course you need to be at your ceremony location on time, but – don’t wear your watch. With all of the different things going on at your wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour, cake cutting, toasts . . .), it will be tempting to check your watch to make sure everything is going on time. Instead, relax, and enjoy your wedding day rather than repeatedly looking at the time.

Also, you’ll want your engagement ring (and your wedding ring) to be the star of the show when it comes to your hands. There will be camera close-ups of your hands, and the last thing you want is a watch taking the spotlight. With that in mind, be easy on wearing other rings too. Once again you want your engagement and wedding ring to be the center of attention, and other rings will take away from that.

Subtlety Is Key

You should be the focus of your wedding, so you don’t want to wear anything that is going to take away from that. You don’t need to be wearing a necklace, earrings, a tiara, a veil, a sash, and goodness knows what else to look great on your wedding day.

Instead, carefully think about which pieces of your precious jewelry will best compliment what you will be wearing and fit your personal style. The right pieces of jewelry and accessories can add that extra something to your wedding day look, but too much or the wrong jewelry or accessory can ruin it. Instead of going with an ornate necklace, consider something smaller that will accentuate your neckline.

The same is true for earrings. Small studs may be enough. Remember that you don’t want to copy the design of your wedding dress. You want to make sure that you are complimenting it instead. Less is often more in these kinds of situations. Try on a few things and see what looks best, and getting a second or third opinion never hurts either.

Just Be Yourself

When it comes to dressing for your wedding, you want to be yourself. Don’t let other people tell you how you should look for your wedding (or what the wedding itself should look like). If that means ignoring all of the advice in this article, then go for it.

Your wedding isn’t about turning yourself into a stereotypical “bride.” Instead it is a reflection of your and your fiance’s personalities, and for you that reflection is also in the jewelry and accessories you’ll be wearing.

Stick to your own style and if that means you stray outside the “usual” color scheme or typical way of doing things then don’t worry. Sticking to your own style is how you are going to look the most beautiful when you get married. Take a moment to reflect on what you are wearing and if any of it feels like it is only being worn due to pressure from others (you know who you are), then seriously consider ditching it.
