5 Short and Sweet Destination Wedding Bridal GOWN Ideas

New York Bridal Fashion Week has wrapped, and we are swooning over the romantic and feminine looks that graced this year’s runway!

When choosing a gown for a destination wedding, several factors come into play. Will the ceremony be outdoors? On a beach? In a garden? What’s your personal style? What will work best for the conditions at your ceremony site?

Having planned and designed so many Chic Bahamas Weddings, we can assure you that we have seen it all. That’s why we’ve rounded up our favorite gowns from Bridal Fashion Week for a Bahamas wedding. We’re going to show you our favorite looks in categories ranging from Short and Sweet to Sultry. And all of these will work well for an outdoor and/or beach destination wedding bridal gown!

Advice from Randi Fenoli’s Book “The Dress”

The star of TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress,” Randy Fenoli in his book “The Dress” gives a whole lot of advice on your gown.  He says the first thing you need to do is figure out the “story” of you and your fiance.  Other tips include:

  • To find your story, dig deep, and ask yourself the right questions.
  • Know your story before you begin shopping for the dress
  • Once you find your story, you will find your dress
  • Keep an open mind when trying on dresses
  • Try not to get overwhelmed shopping for a wedding dress
  • This should be fun!
