Getting married abroad in warmer climates calls for
a more careful choice of both fabric and style of wedding dress.
After making ones choice, there's the difficult task
of packing and transporting it to it's destination so that on 'your special
day' both you and your wedding gown will look - ' a million dollars'.
The current situation with airlines is that there are special arrangements
for the transportation of wedding dresses etc. - but they differ from airline
a good idea is to ask at the time of booking ones flights as to just what
and what is expected from you in the way of packaging.
On arrival at your hotel/destination unpack
the dress immediately and hang it on a 'hanger'. Before your wedding day
ask your 'wedding coordinator' if they will attend to
your wedding dress and have it looking it's very best for the 'big day', in
most instances you'll not have to ask, it will be automatically taken care
it does no harm to remind them.
If you have few, or
no guests accompanying you when getting married abroad,
then a good idea for you to consider is to arrange your 'wedding day' to be
in the latter part of your holiday, firstly, you will undoubtedly make friends,
amongst other honeymooners or holidaymakers and they will just love to attend
your 'big day' possibly become your witnesses even and make a party group
of it.- secondly should (inadvertently) your wedding dress or luggage go missing
for some strange reason, then time is on your side for it to be located and
delivered, to you - don't worry this seldom if ever happens, ( in
all our 21 years in operation, we've never had such an incident reported)
but one has to have
contingency plans, just in case.
