Travel for two: You and your dress

Honeymoons & Destination Weddings, Wedding Dresses

Travel guru Tammy Levent of Elite Travel delivers the inside scoop on planning a wedding away from home. Here, she answers the all-important question:

How can I keep my dress looking fresh from the store to my destination wedding?

First, you have to pick the right kind of dress for your location. A ball gown looks out of place on a beach, and you don't want to spend your wedding brushing sand off of a 30-foot train. Keep it simple for easy hanging. I like Brides by Demetrios' Destination Romance collection—they're beautiful dresses made for brides on the move. I asked Tassos Elias, owner of Brides by Demetrios, for his recommendation on fabrics and designs that travel easily, and he suggests light, flowing, soft materials like chiffon, non-silk taffeta, organza, crepe, and satin charmeuse (which looks like silk, but wrinkles less). He says "the easiest dress design for destination weddings is a modified A-line, with either no train, or a sweep train."

Once you have your dress, the best way to ensure that it arrives safely is to never take your eyes off of it....
