One of the best things about a weekend-long destination wedding? You get to choose multiple bridal looks to celebrate in. (Lucky you!) One of the hardest things about a weekend-long destination wedding? Just that. Fortunately, we did the legwork for you and found every single outfit a bride-to-be needs to pack for a sunshiney destination wedding—from the night-before rehearsal dinner frock, to the wedding dress, to your next-day brunch ensemble.
These luxe looks are bound to suit any warm-weathered bash, but what's one of the fave settings for destination nuptials as of late? Jamaica! If you thought the Caribbean island nation was all jerk chicken and Bob Marley, think again. The past few years have seen a resurgence of life on the island and now there are more chic spots than ever to host a destination wedding in this "Sun Is Shining" paradise. The hardest part? Picking the perfect one.
Our team chose the storied Tryall Club for our April/May 2017 fashion shoot—a 2,200-acre former sugar plantation that now houses 75 villas, including 10-bedroom mansions—for its relaxed atmosphere and ideal location just 20 minutes from Montego Bay's Sangster International Airport. The resort's full-service team will help plan private activities to keep your guests happily busy, from in-villa cooking classes to boat excursions, tennis round robins, and golf outings. Meanwhile, the on-site wedding specialist will customize every detail of your ceremony and reception, which can be held on the beach, on your villa's patio, or indoors at the Great House.
Again, good luck picking just one.
But even harder than choosing a wedding locale in this blue-sea setting is choosing a wedding dress. Thus, we've rounded up some sultry, sunny bridal gowns perfect for destination weddings—and every kind of bride.
With that taken care of—along with every other outfit you need for your destination "I dos" checked, checked, and checked—you're ready to fly, jet-setter!
