What type of gown comes to mind when you think of destination wedding dresses? For many of our destination brides, the best options are comfortable, easily transportable, and have a light and easy style. Lucky for us, K&B has our very own travel specialist working with us at the Be More Inspired Wedding Studio who can give us a few insider tips! Kelly Jara, Owner of Travelworks International, LLC, knows the ins and outs of planning the perfect destination wedding, down to the tiniest details. And, we asked her to peruse our racks and pick out her top five favorite in-store styles that she thinks would make perfect destination wedding dresses!
KELLY’S TOP FIVE DESTINATION WEDDING DRESSES
1. Martina Liana Style 753
Martina Liana’s gowns are always unique and dramatic, and nothing says beach drama like this Bellagio crepe sheath dress. With delicate lace straps, illusion cutouts and back, and a train to die for, this dress will make any destination wedding a day to remember.
2. Jefferson by Emmaline Bridal
One of K&B’s newest lines, Emmaline Bridal uses different fabrics and patterns like flower-print and gold sequins to bring a whimsical and fresh vibe to their collection. Their Jefferson gown, paired below with a geometric belt by Faye Daniel Designs, is a light silk chiffon gown that you can imagine blowing in the wind and creating the most photo-worthy wedding moment.
3. Ti Adora Style 7708
Oh, Ti Adora. Every beach-dreaming bride’s dream. These gowns, with their bohemian accents and comfortable styling, make the perfect options for a beach destination wedding. 7708, shown below, features a sheer halter neckline with braided straps and pom trim accents on the bodice.
4. Allure Bridals Style 8800
Allure Bridals gowns always have a classic style, but the 8800 shown below has been particularly popular for brides with an outdoor or destination wedding because of the style as well as the comfort. The 8800 is a slip dress, meaning that the dress has a satin slip underneath of a lace shell. These dresses typically have fewer layers than other styles of wedding gowns. This sometimes makes it easier to move around in outside or on a sandy beach.
5. Martina Liana Separates Cate Corset and Sawyer Skirt
We knew we would find at least one combination of the Martina Liana Together Forever separates collection on this list. The Cate corset and Sawyer skirt are a match made in heaven, and when paired with a nature-inspired belt by Faye Daniel Designs, fit any setting for your destination wedding.
“One of the wonderful things about destination weddings, besides getting married in paradise, is that they give brides so much flexibility in their style of dress,” Kelly says. “Whether the bride wants short, long, formal, casual, whimsical, train or bling – everything works. We have a bride getting married in the Bahamas this June. She chose a pink dress, and she will look amazing on the beach with the backdrop of stunning turquoise water that Exuma is known for.” As if you needed another reason to fantasize about beachside nuptials!
