The Must Have Accessories to Take to a Destination Wedding


When you have your wedding out of town, the last thing you want to do is forget the accessories you need before and after the wedding. You already have to take care of the list—bring the shoes, the dress, your blow dryer, curling iron, makeup, and so much more. You may already feel the anxiety build as you double check and triple check to make sure you don’t forget a single thing before you hop in your car or on a plane. Besides the essentials, you are going to be thankful that you brought a few of these must have accessories for your destination wedding.

Sunglasses

Protect your eyes from harmful UV rays throughout your wedding week with a pair of women’s sunglasses. Sunglasses are easy to forget in the heat of the moment when you are dashing to the door, but don’t forget the health of your eyes and vision. Polarized lenses will protect your eyes from UV rays. Get the latest styles in cat-eye, aviator, or even brow-bar variations.

Sunscreen

No matter the time of year, it is important to make sure you keep your skin protected. Dermatologists recommend wearing sunscreen every day, even if the weather is cloudy. Wearing sunscreen in the summer is a given, but if you are having a winter wonderland wedding, keep in mind the UV rays filter through the clouds and bounce of the snow. Trying to get a tan look before the wedding? Don’t risk getting a burn before your big day. Instead, invest in a spray tan. A spray tan keeps you glowing without the harmful effects of the sun.

Watch

A smartphone is just no match for a classic watch. Look cool and collected with a watch that matches your tastes. Are you a gold kind of girl? Get a watch with a gold band and a delicate pearlescent face. If you desire to catch on to the latest trend, go for a rose gold watch, which will match with almost any wedding-week outfit.

Night/ Day Mask

Before the big day, it is important to keep skin hydrated and refreshed. Besides drinking water, green tea, and various other concoctions, make sure you wear a mask at night and in the day. Water-based masks keep hydration in without giving off the oily effect of other masks that can clog your pours. Day and night masks that are water-based can even be used as a base to be worn under makeup and keep the foundation from running down your face. Use a moisturizer like this to avoid dryness, discoloration, and dullness of the skin.

Keep in mind that if you are going to get a facial, get it at least a week before, or longer depending on the strength of the facial you are getting. This will keep your skin protected during your wedding, as facials make skin highly sensitive to the sun and the elements, thus giving yourself time before the wedding is beneficial.

First Aid Kit

On your wedding day, the last thing you want is a raging headache or an annoying hangnail. Keep a first aid kit handy to avoid anything that could ruin your big day. Your mini first aid kit should include band aids of various sizes, Tylenol or Ibuprofen, tampons, pads, cotton swabs, alcohol, and medical bandages. You can’t prevent everything, but you can be one step ahead with a kit to help you and your bridal party if there is a need.

Bug Spray

If you are the type who gets eaten alive by bugs, it’s best to have bug spray on hand. No matter where your wedding is, the destination, season, and weather can determine if bugs are out and about. The last thing you want is to walk down the aisle with unbearably itchy legs with bright red welts.

Make your wedding a day to remember for all the right reasons. Keep these accessories in mind as you plan your travels and make memories to last a lifetime.
