Long Sleeved Dresses for Fall Destination Weddings

Fall is quickly approaching, yay! For those brides who are wanting to say their I do’s this time of year should consider this amazing wedding dress style: long sleeves! Whether you’re getting married at the beach in Mexico, in the city of Paris, or the countryside in the U.S, this look can go a long way and give you extra comfort for the chilly weather. A lace dress won’t keep you toasty but it is undeniably gorgeous! Try out this dress style with a destination wedding on the beach. Also, a long chiffon train will look amazing while you’re gliding along the sand. Getting married in the city? Consider a classy dressed up look with a solid fabric. You can also add some unique touches with a hair piece, veil, or even an umbrella! An outdoor wedding is always breathtaking! But, it can get cold easily during the fall. Long sleeves are a perfect solution to this possible discomfort. Keep the rustic charm of the woods with lace details on your sleeves. Wow your crowd, hubby or bride, and stay warm with this stunning look at your destination wedding!

Destination Wedding in Hawaii Photo Shoot

Today’s wedding ideas don’t come from a real wedding, but a beautiful inspiration shoot in Hawaii, brought to us by Melany Coyne of Golden Light Weddings & Events.  These beautiful purple and gold destination wedding ideas came to life with all the sparkle and celebration one would expect when saying I do on the Big Island!  And Melany shared with us their story and inspiration for the big day.  “The King’s Knoll at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott provided the main inspiration for this shoot. Located on the north west side of the Big Island of Hawaii overlooking the fish ponds at Anaeho’omalu bay. The Ali’i, Hawaiian royals, built the ponds to raise fish for themselves and their families. Along the path to King’s Knoll you will see ancient stone-walled structures.”

“With this location and the theme ‘plum + gold, royal elegance’ in mind I contacted some incredibly talented and creative vendors on Hawaii for assistance bringing the dream to reality. Hannah and John at Hawaii Island Events can make anything, the tables and arch were created at their Kona workshop. They also provided all of the luxurious fabrics and elegant table settings. Erin at Passionflowers by Nalani designed all of our florals including that gorgeous floral sash with jasmine vine, braided plumosus, dendrobium orchids, and lisianthus for our Polynesian princess bride.”

“Of course none of this would be possible without the innovative and extremely talented photographer Mykle Coyne on our team. He took all of the pieces and transformed them into such a beautiful representation of our theme. Truly capturing the essence of this tropical paradise wedding location. This inspiration shoot is for all of those brides who dream of a royal castle wedding, but envision sun-kissed afternoons with warm salty breezes and rays of golden light from the sunset for their wedding day.”

“The Big Island is well known for its coffee plantations, most coffee lovers have heard of Kona coffee and know of its richness and bold flavor. I created the favors with local Kona coffee for guests to take a piece of island paradise home. Bradley & Lily created the elegant and timeless letterpress stationary and menus.”

Glam Beach Weddings

Ever consider going glam for your destination wedding?  What about a truly glam beach wedding?!  We love the look of a formal groom, lavish decor, dripping crystal details, oodles of flowers and the beautiful beach as a backdrop.  Muted colors mimic your surroundings and don’t take away from the beauty, while touches of sparkle and a hint of over-the-top only add to it!
