Destination weddings are still the rage, and while they're sometimes a far better option than the traditional banquet-hall wedding, these far-flung nuptials can offer a host of their own planning considerations.

Part is simply fundamental: You are asking your bridal party to not only prep to be very involved in your wedding but also to make a trip—for some even a great distance. Show your bridesmaids just how much you truly value them by gifting your gals care packages of gifts to use during the destination-wedding festivities. Trust us, the gesture will be very appreciated!

Pearl Bath Bombs Lavender Ring Bomb

Once your bridesmaids arrive at the destination, they will be wiped and ready for a good night's sleep before all the celebrating begins. Or maybe the bridal party had a little too much fun during the rehearsal dinner and needs to detox before the big day. Pearl Bath Bombs's lavender bath bomb is the perfect relaxer. Not only does lavender prepare you for sleep, but it has therapeutic qualities that will calm the mind and body. This is also a great gift for a bridesmaid who's secretly jealous of the bride's ring, since each bomb comes with a cocktail ring inside! (Lavender ring bath bomb, $14.94, Pearl Bath Bombs)

Besides an external battery, here's a must for those international destinations: Skyroam, the personal Wi-Fi hot spot that enables travelers to connect up to five devices at a time in over 100+ countries with zero roaming fees. Since you can connect multiple devices, you may even consider getting one or two for the group to share (but the price is right to add one to each girl's gift bag!).
