What To Pack For A Destination Wedding

October 20, 2015 by Linda DiProperzio
shefinds | Weddings

Destination weddings are still a popular choice for many brides and grooms. And while saying ‘I do’ in a different locale is exciting, it can be a more difficult endeavor to pull off–especially when you think about all that you have to bring with you for the event. Here is a checklist of things to pack for your destination wedding.

Passports. You’ll definitely need these if you’re traveling out of the country.

Wedding Rings. Place these safely in your carry-on bag.

Wedding dress. Do not to check it with your luggage. You should carry it on to the plane with you. Most planes have a closet where you can hang it. The rest of your ensemble (veil, shoes, undergarments, etc.) can get packed in your suitcase.

Wedding tux/suit

Plane tickets/itinerary/boarding passes

Credit card/travelers checks/cash

Swimwear and beach essentials (sunscreen, beach bag, etc.). You’ll want these items if you’re going to a warm destination.

Wedding welcome bags and guest favors. You may also consider shipping these to your hotel before you leave.

Bridal Party Gifts. You can also ship these with the welcome bags.

Safety pins/Travel sewing kit

Copies of all vendor/resort/venue contracts. If you hired a wedding planner in your destination city, then he/she should have copies of all of these on hand.

List of all vendor contact info. Again, a wedding planner should have these stored in her phone, but it’s a good idea for you to keep a copy of this info, too.

Prescriptions/health insurance cards

Proof of trip insurance

Phone number of the closest US embassy

Marriage certificate. If you had your legal ceremony at home and will be having a religious ceremony abroad, some countries will require proof that you are legally married.

Wedding night lingerie/undergarments

Something old, new, borrowed and blue

Your vows. Print two copies, just in case.

Cake topper

Programs, Menu Cards, Table Numbers, Escort Cards

Guest book

– Traditional Ceremony celebration items. Think a unity candle or sand ceremony supplies.
