10 Ultimate Destination Wedding Gowns
June 4, 2020
We have been loving the onslaught of bohemian vibes coming from brides’ weddings these days. A curated collection of down-to-earth details surrounded by a beautiful landscape creates breathtaking photos and a one-of-a-kind ceremony. Whether you’re getting married in a desolate, chic desert or a lush tropical getaway, we are sure these gowns are the perfect addition to your wild and free wedding day! Fall in love with any? Let your consultant know at your appointment!
First up is Adara by Allure Bridals. This whimsical and ethereal a-line dress features a gorgeous banded waist and open back along with trickling lace throughout the skirt. A tastefully plunging v neck accented with the icy ivory/platinum color combo makes this down truly stunning! We can imagine this being a gorgeous choice for a glacier-filled backdrop like Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada!
Dessie by Chic Nostalgia is one of our absolute favorite bohemian dream dresses not only because it’s beautiful, but because it’s comfortable. Featuring a stretch liner in a champagne undertone and beaded pearl detailing through throughout the dress, this gown is a lightweight stunner perfectly made for wandering through the landscape. We love the stark contrast between Dessie’s delicate lace against the harsh backdrop of somewhere like Joshua Tree National Park in California!
One of our newest arrivals is Adley from All Who Wander, our bohemian-at-heart bridal collection dedicated to brides who want something ethereal and captivating. Adley is a perfect combination of a gorgeous sheath silhouette with crocheted lace, making a statement without a single ounce of glitter. Top it all off with plunging neckline and keyhole back and you’re destined to drop jaws. We could see this gown looking gorgeous somewhere like Gatlinburg, Tennessee in the Smokey Mountains during autumn!
While she may not have a fancy name, style 9652 is the ultimate stunner for brides wanting more volume in the skirt. This a-line gown features handkerchief detailing, creating dimension throughout the skirt when paired with the lace appliques. A gorgeous high neckline with illusion lace placement allows for the girls to be supported and covered, but still center stage. We think this gown would be show-stopping against the gorgeous twinkling lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver, Canada!
Another top contender coming from Chic Nostalgia is Junie, a lightweight a-line gown with tons of illusion tulle and 3D florals. We love the soft, illusion straps paired with the flowy off-the-shoulder sleeves, creating a whimsical vibe for any bride. The sand-colored undertone would match gorgeously against the rolling sand dunes at Little Sahara State Park in Oklahoma.
One of our absolute favorite dresses is Antonia by Maggie Sottero, a sheath-fitted dress with a stretch liner and fully lace sleeves. A soft v front is matched by the v back with scalloped edges, keeping the silhouette feminine and comfortable. The absolute best part? Small, petite bell sleeves to add just a touch of groovy to this cool gown. We think this gown would be perfect against a cool, coastal breeze somewhere like the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland.
Want something a little more chic and simplistic than whimsical? We definitely recommend Aston from Sottero and Midgley, a sheath-fitted fully crepe dress complete with sleeves and some seriously intense beaded detailing. This illusion back is truly unique and also features cloth buttons all the way through the train. This gown would make a statement in any destination, but we see it standing out in a truly urban area, like a rooftop in New York or the Smith Tower in Seattle, Washington.
For any bride wanting to make a true statement with her train, this should be one of your top contenders! 1863 by Kenneth Winston is a gorgeous fit-and-flare gown featuring lace appliques, off-the-shoulder straps, and an entire layer of glitter tulle designed to make you sparkle with every step. We think this dress would be a total stunner somewhere like Mykonos, Greece – surrounded by historical architecture and the clear sea!
Another great fit-and-flare contender is J6750 from Moonlight Bridal. This gorgeous lace gown features a double layer of lace – delicate chantilly lace underneath to create texture with a layer of modern lace appliques on top for dimension and detail. The peek-a-boo plunge within the off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline keeps this dress romantic and feminine while just a little bit sexy. We think this baby would look fabulous somewhere lush and tropical like Tulum, Mexico!
We think Pia from Morilee by Madeline Garner is the perfect switch-hitter of a gown; whether you’re wanting a rural area or an urban cityscape, she’s a perfect match to any vibe. Her high neckline with cut-out back keeps this silhouette sexy yet classy. This gown features applique lace and detailed beading throughout the bodice. We could see this gown looking edgy and fierce somewhere like the Neon Museum in Las Vegas, Nevada!
