Are any of you ladies buying a bunch of new clothes for your destination wedding (obviously besides the dress)?


I want to wear a lot of cute new clothes, but don't really know the best stores/sites to get cheaper clothes


I am buying things one by one months in advance, trying to stockpile a whole new wardrobe


Anyone else doing this? What stores are you hitting up? What are some necessary pieces to bring along?


I am scared I am going to buy so much stuff that I will overpack and overspend :)

I am not, no. I have picked up a few extra pieces that I know I need more of. More swimsuit cover ups, would like another swim suit and maybe another sun dress but not really much more. Just don't feel I can justify it because I've turned into this frugal penny pinching bride lmao!!! But I am checking our clearance racks at my fave stores - rickis, bootlegger, old navy, etc.

I am definitely looking for some cute summer clothes! I just got 5 new bikinis at Victoria's Secret last week, they were 40% off!! I am just gonna get a bunch of end of summe deals though so then I can justify it!! I am usually really cheap and never buy myself new clothes so this is one time I don't feel so guilty!!

Oh this is funny to read!! My husband always gets onto me about how much I pack when we go away. I will be honest.... I bought a little bit of new stuff right before we got married and took it with me to Jamaica. And I came home with a bunch of it unworn! There will be group events obviously that you will need to dress (either shorts or whatever) but for the most part, and except for a la carte dinners, you will be in a swim suit and cover up!! And believe me - the weight in your suitcase adds up VERY quickly!!!!

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

I always buy new clothes for vacation and way over pack, it's an addiction! try Marshall's, TJ Maxx, and kohls. And if you have enough time, watch for the VS semi-annual and end of season sales

I have bought so many new clothes for our trip, every time I come home with a shopping bag now my FI says "You better be able to wear that somewhere other than Mexico!" lol

I'm going to buy a few pieces once the summer is over. I plan to be in a bathing suit 70% of the time lol
Good Luck :)

yeah i';m not sure if this is everywhere, but an Old Navy I just went to had major sales on bathing suits- I bought like 5 of them bc each part was around 6-7$- not going to get much cheaper than that!

I can't help myself with buying all new stuff when I go away.  I love the excitment of wearing something new on vacation and this will be our HONEYMOON!  I have been getting sandals from DSW for real cheap and also check out 6pm.com  they have lots of shoes, clothes and bathing suits for cheap.  Macy's currently has 60% off coverups and bathing suits.

Since the summer clothes are on sale now as the stores are bringing out their fall/winter gear, I'll be picking up some new summer items since they are on clearance.
