Destination Wedding Bridal Accessories: Jewelry

When deciding what jewelry you want to wear on your wedding day, use the neckline of your dress as a starting point when determining what accessories you want to wear. Are you wearing a high neckline, or does your dress have a lot of detail on the bodice? Keep it simple by opting out of a necklace and instead choose a chic pair of statement earrings or bracelets. Wearing a flowy off-the-shoulder gown? Try a statement necklace to help showcase your collarbone and keep the earrings simple and dainty. Be sure to pick jewelry you love so you can wear it again on anniversaries and date nights!

Destination Wedding Bridal Accessories: Shoes

When getting married on the beach, deciding what type of shoe you want to wear can be tricky! The goal is to find a pair of shoes that make you feel beautiful all day long, from when you get dressed to when you leave the dance floor. That being said, you want to pick a bridal shoe that is stylish, comfortable, and of course, able to fit in your luggage!  

If your wedding is directly on the sandy beaches of the Bahamas, wear a pair of strappy sandals or flats. Pick a pair with pearls or beaded embellishments for extra bridal sparkle! If heels are non-negotiable on your big day, choose a sturdy, wide heel. You can always wear flat shoes for the wedding ceremony and then change into a glamorous pair of stilettos for your cocktail hour and reception. Remember that shoes can take up a decent amount of luggage space!

Bridal Hairstyles

Whether your wedding is directly oceanfront or on the lawn of a luxurious resort, a beautiful beach wedding hairstyle is a must! Many wedding hairstyles are perfect for a destination wedding, from tousled beach waves, chic chignons, or a twisty braid. A humidity-friendly updo or chic ponytail with pearl pins is the perfect finishing touch to a modern summer bridal look. For the boho brides, make a statement with a loose, messy braid or keep it down and make a statement with a romantic floral crown.

Wedding Veils

Picking the perfect wedding veil is the finishing touch to your beautiful bridal look. A long, cathedral-length veil will look breathtaking in a couple of portraits on the beach. The veil will drape beautifully onto the sand, and the island winds will pick it up just right for your photos. For brides wanting to keep it unfussy or just looking for a more modern take on the wedding veil, a short blusher or birdcage veil is very trendy at the moment. Regardless of the wedding veil you pick, ask your bridal stylist to show you how to pack it for your destination wedding properly. They can also give you the best tips for steaming and product care while traveling.
