Real weddings Destination

Have you or your partner decided that a UK wedding is not for you? In other words, you are worried about getting married in the UK because of the inconsistent weather. If this is the case, you will definitely find inspiration in the destination wedding section. Perhaps you have opted for a destination wedding because you have a connection with a place abroad; perhaps you holidayed in the south of France when you were younger. Or does your partner have a family connection to Cyprus? Whatever the reason, this is the section where you will find inspiration when it comes to your destination wedding. We have so far featured weddings in France, the USA, Switzerland, Santorini and more, and can’t wait to feature more destination weddings. Destination weddings often look incredible because of the sunshine, although it has been known (though rarely) to rain during a destination wedding. It is important if you are considering a destination wedding to think carefully about your wedding dress. There is no point in going for a very ornate heavy fabric if you are responsible for taking it with you on the plane. Not only will you be concerned that the dress will get there in one place, but if the weather is very hot at the destination, the last thing you will want is to feel uncomfortable in your wedding gown. The same applies to the groom. Here at Style & the Bride, we suggest that he goes for a suit in a lightweight fabric, rather than anything too heavy. As you will see in this destination weddings section, brides often forgo heels for flip-flops, as it can be very difficult walking on the beach in high heels! Whichever country you are planning on having your wedding, we hope you find plenty of ideas and inspiration in this destination wedding section.
