Top 10 Destination Wedding Dresses

Thank you Brittany for this amazing piece!

As a destination wedding planner in the US Virgin Islands, we see a wide variety of wedding dresses in all shapes, colors and styles! Shopping for the perfect wedding dress can already be tricky – adding in a destination wedding and a sandy beach can further complicate this process. Believe it or not, I have seen everything from a simple short white dress with minimal décor to a huge ball gown! Choosing the right dress to navigate through the sand gracefully can be difficult but it is important to stay true to your vision and wear something that makes you feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. Below is a list of the top 10 destination wedding dresses that I have seen in the US Virgin Islands.

10. Strapless Sweetheart

Strapless dresses are a timeless classic that work well for an elegant reception at a private villa or for a casual wedding with your toes between the sand.

8. La La La LACE

A full lace gown is a great choice for a laid back bride that wants to wear her wedding dress again and again! The versatile nature of a long white lace dress is endless, it is lightweight, doesn’t wrinkle and makes for sensational photos.
