5 Bridal Styles For Your Destination Wedding

Badgley Mischka’s 2017 collection will have you dreaming of tying the knot in exotic locations...


Whether you’re jetting off to a sandy beach on an exotic island or saying your vows in a chic European city, Badgley Mischka have the most dreamy destination wedding dresses for any out-of-town nuptial.

A wedding abroad usually connotes sun, sea and sand- and as idyllic as this sounds- it also means you also have to carefully consider your wedding dress choice! If you are getting married in a coastal location with warm climes, you’ll need to find a dress that’s comfortable, light weight but still effortlessly bridal.  Think floaty fabrics such as chiffon and organza to catch the sea breeze and give off a laid-back beach holiday vibe, these make for easy storage and allow you to enjoy the bliss of your wedding day without melting under the heat of the sun!

Bridal Tip

The bigger the dress, the harder it is to transport! Opt for something a little more slinky or fitted and take it with you in hand-luggage on the plane (never suitcase!) as this way you have more control and there is less chance of the gown needing steamed at the destination.

From romantic lace, to floating trains and high-luxe European glamour we have picked out some of the best options for your wedding abroad…
