What if all my guests can’t attend?

Don’t be upset if all your guests can’t attend your wedding due to budget or time. Typically, 35-40 percent of invited guests attend destination weddings. Many couples have receptions or wedding showers at home to celebrate your marriage.

How do I travel with my wedding dress?

Making sure your wedding dress arrives safely to your destination is important! We suggest bustling your dress in a garment bag and carrying it on with you. If there is room, most flight attendants will hang it in the first class closet for you. However, these closets are small and fill up quickly. If the closet isn’t available, you can put it in the overhead compartment and have the resort steam it out for you when you arrive. Do not ever check your dress with luggage or ship it in advance. You don’t want risk losing the most important dress of your life!
