Let's Pack: Destination Wedding

There’s nothing better than a destination wedding. From the excuse to travel to the stunning backdrop, it’s a dream. But packing for such a big wedding can quickly take the fun out of it. That’s where AvA simplifies things with versatile pieces that can carry you from welcome drinks, to rehearsal dinner, to walking down the aisle. Here’s our packing must-haves for that upcoming destination wedding.

on the plane

Whether the flight is two hours or eight hours, you should feel and look amazing the whole flight through. That’s why we suggest building an outfit around our Gabriele Italian Cotton Pants which are the crossroads of comfort and fashion. We’re reaching for the White or Khaki pants that go with everything.

welcome drinks

It’s your first impression to the fellow wedding guests so make it a good one. We recommend the Fiona Cotton Shirtdress in Indigo Palm which keeps you fun, flirty, and a touch more casual than your weekend looks to come. To save room while packing, our tip is to pack one pair of heels that match all of your looks. We’re doing that with a pair of comfortable yet stylish white, wedge sandals.

rehearsal dinner

It’s time for an exhilarating rehearsal and a delicious meal. The Sophie Sheer Dress in Bamboo Brush over the matching Caterina Short Stretch Knit Dress paired with the Cashmere Wrap in Illusion Blue makes for a jaw-dropping look. Add chunky gold jewelry and a bold lip for the ultimate rehearsal dinner ensemble.

the BIG day

It’s finally here. Your clutch is jam packed with tissues and your mascara is waterproof, now it’s time to get dressed. Since it’s a destination wedding most likely on a tropical island somewhere we want to keep the look dressy while still leaning towards a breezy, free flowing fabric to beat the heat. This leads us to the Minerva Dress in Blooming Yucca or the Aurora Mesh T-Shirt Dress in Papillon. Either of these stunning looks will keep you cool, comfortable, and looking fabulous. Pair with your wedge heel, a neutral clutch, and oversized earrings for an extra elevated feel.

beach day

The big day has come to an end but your vacation hasn’t. It’s time to hit the beach and relax. Taking up very little room in your suitcase, the Electra Sheer Topper in Dancing Orchid can be worn over your bright blue bathing suit. A perfect match for oversized sunglasses, our Buzz x AvA fragrance meets bug repellent, and sunscreen.

Cheers to the happy couple and cheers to your fabulous weekend of looks. We look forward to seeing how you style your AvA wedding ensembles. And as always we hope your suitcase feels curated, confident, effortless, AvA.
