Having a destination wedding can be a wonderful adventure, but knowing what to pack may be more difficult than you think. Even more problematic can knowing how to pack your items, and sometimes there are things that you cannot pack at all. Since you’ve probably been spending more time planning your wedding than researching FAA regulations, here is a brief overview of how to handle packing various things for your destination wedding.

Wedding Dress

Your wedding dress is probably the most important thing to consider since you’ll probably have it picked out and purchased several months before you leave for your wedding. There are really only two good options; and the last thing you want to do is pack it in your luggage where it could be lost or damaged! The best option is to properly prepare your wedding dress for travel and rent a space in the garment closet on your airplane or have the dress shipped via private courier with insurance on it. The latter will be more expensive, but it can give you peace of mind that your wedding dress will arrive timely and in one piece.

Decorations

If at all possible, you should buy your wedding decorations locally and avoid travelling with them all together. Checking luggage has become quite expensive in recent years, and decorations take up a lot of space. Of course, there will be a few small items that you want to take along that are important to you, but try to keep the list as small as possible so you can avoid additional baggage fees at the airport.

Wedding Sparklers

Traveling with sparklers is completely against FAA regulations, so you will not be able to take them on the plane. That leaves you with two options: either find a place to purchase your wedding sparklers locally or have them shipped to your hotel ahead of time. The problem with the former is that most wedding destinations will have a limited selection of sparklers available for purchase. If you want a specific size like ones that are 36 inches long, then shopping locally for your sparklers may not be an option. Fortunately, this company will ship 36 inch wedding sparklers to your destination for no additional fess so you can have them the moment you arrive.

Tuxedo

Since most tuxedo rentals need to be returned on the following day, there’s really no reason to bring yours along on the plane ride. Instead, get fitted at a national rental firm and have the pickup scheduled for your destination. That way, you can pick up and drop off your tuxedo rental at the same place which is much simpler than doing it at two different locations and packing it in your luggage.

When you travel to a destination for your wedding, it can be tempting to pack way too many items than are necessary. Often times you can get the items you need when you arrive, so make sure you’re objective when planning what to pack. If you make a list ahead of time and attempt to find ways to not bring along each item, packing for your destination wedding will become a much easier task.
