  2. Up, up, and away to your big day! But wait, not too fast. When you're getting ready for a destination wedding, you have to take a few extra steps to ensure that your wedding must-haves will arrive at the right place at the right time. The last thing you should be worrying about is missing bags and lost or stolen items. To alleviate the stress of a mishap, think BDW more than ever: Best Destination Wedding…Of course! But in this case, it stands for Baggage, Dough, and Worries! Baggage Keep your bags light and small enough to take as a carry-on. Because you’ll be getting on a plane for your destination wedding, and going someplace far away—perhaps even out of the country—traveling light is the best way to save money and ensure the safety of your belongings. Clothing, hair products, and accessories can add up in unnecessary pounds and hike up your baggage fees. To avoid paying steep prices, consider buying your toiletries and any other generic products once you have arrived or have them shipped in advance. Dough Use global wedding retailers like LightintheBox.com and Milanoo.com to ship your remaining essentials. Bridalholics’ best kept secret is online coupons that can get you deals and discounts up to 80% off on thousands of wedding items. For example, you can rack up the savings with a Light In The Box Coupon Code to score extravagant accessories, without paying retail prices for them. There’s no limit to the selection of wedding goodies you can find online, with a huge selection of everything from veils, shoes, and satin handbags for as low as $30 a piece. Worries Leave your worries and your prized possessions behind. There’s no reason to take your bling with you when you can find costume jewelry that sparkles just as brightly as the real deal. Keep your jewels safe and sound at home, or in a safe deposit box, and instead opt for less expensive fashion accessories that stunt double for the real thing. There is always a risk of getting your suitcase lost or stolen, stock full of your high-priced essentials before reaching your wedding hot spot. That’s why it’s important to pack only the items that you can afford to lose, take everything else (including your dress) in your travel carry-on, and get the remaining items shipped to your wedding destination for safekeeping. Stick with these simple housekeeping rules and celebrate your upcoming nuptials stress-free and as happy as can be! Have a BDW tip of your own? I’d love to hear from you! Share your thoughts below.

    Recently Engaged - Choosing a Destination!

    My suggestion is to make a Top 10 list : places you see yourself tying the knot without any external factors. From there, you can widdle down an option or two by thinking 'is this cost prohibitive for my guests?', 'would my elderly relatives realistically be able to attend?' ... hopefully that can lead you to a shorter list to work with. Best wishes!
