Destination Wedding!

August 23, 2023
Beach set up for a wedding

More and more brides are planning a destination wedding. Instead of having a “Wedding Day” it becomes the “Wedding Event”. For a new bride, a one-day celebration can become a more memorable sequence of days with family and friends arriving with plenty of time to spare for rest, relaxation, and celebrating at a chosen local. Instead of orchestrating the whole event (unless you can afford a wedding planner) you can sit back, relax and let your chosen venue take care of all of the details of your special day and the subsequent honeymoon.

Whether you pick a location for sun and surf like Mexico or Hawaii or for the lights and excitement of Las Vegas, the Destination Wedding can save a bride and groom plenty of money as well. No matter where the bridal party is traveling to, the wedding gown/ensemble will need to look fresh and unwrinkled for the ceremony. Airlines no longer let brides carry on their gowns to be stored in a cabin closet. It will have to be checked as baggage or brought aboard as a carry-on to be stored in an overhead compartment. There are not too many brides who will feel confident enough to check it as baggage with the reputation airlines now have for lost luggage.  Foster-Stephens can provide you with the perfect solution for carrying your gown on board while safely protecting it. 

Destination Wedding Kit Collapsible Luggage

For carry-on dresses, we have our Destination Wedding Travel Box Kit that holds most dresses. This Kit comes with acid-free tissue, a protective muslin wrap, and cotton gloves. Accessories are available also. Also, we have a light, collapsible travel and storage box that comes in 3 colors.  If you prefer a hanging bag, our 072R non-woven Double Handle Garment Bag will handle any size dress and is easy to carry with you. No one will be able to see the dress and it has a special pocket for identification.

If you decide to check your dress, you will need one of our large Keepsake Preservation Kits. This box is larger, to give your dress more room so that there are less wrinkles.

Once you arrive, try these quick fixes for wrinkles:  you can travel with a portable hand steamer. Or, hang your gown on the bathroom door, close the door, and run the shower on hot until the room is filled with steam. Or, ask your hotel to send it to a dry cleaner for professional pressing before the wedding. 

Whether your dream wedding is on a beach, at a castle, or near your home, Foster-Stephens can provide the perfect storage solution for you. Your life is filled with many special memories…each one becomes a family story when you preserve it with love.
