Weddings Abroad: What to wear and what to pack

A lot of thought goes into dressing for a wedding, never mind a wedding abroad.  Just ask Amal Clooney who rocked some amazing gowns in her Italian nuptials to the gorgeous George!

Not only is there the all important wedding guest dress and an outfit for the day after, but you’re also faced with the daunting challenge of packing for a sun holiday in winter.

Thankfully Littlewoods Ireland has considered your every need! Even in these cold, dark days you can find an amazing range of swimwear and top quality Riemann P20 sun protection for those of you lucky enough to be jetting off to a wedding abroad.

Here are some great options to see you on your way.

Beauty travel essentials

First things first; it’s so important to keep your skin nourished while on holiday. The drastic change of climates (not to mention the late boozy nights) can wreak havoc with your skin, so it’s extra important to maintain a good skincare routine. Pack this travel-size Murad Essential-C Starter Kit which has everything you need to keep your skin glowing.

For make-up, keep a Illamasqua Holiday Makeup Bag stocked with a super handy Real Techniques Mini Brush Trio and Sunkissed Day to Night Set. For that sunkissed-south-of-france glow, this St. Tropez gradual tan will be your best friend.  You can wear it every day and it leaves you with a natural looking colour. I can’t leave the house (let alone the country!) without my Gatineau Handbag Essentials kit.

The wedding day

Next thing to consider is the outfit you will wear for the wedding itself. This Myleene Klass Dress is a great colour for any weather and its satin waist band makes it super flattering. You can also get more mileage out of your accessories by keeping them neutral. I love this Coleen Metal Edge Detail Hard Box Clutch paired with some simple  Two Part Sandals.

Finish off this glam look by adding these Elements Sterling Silver Teardrop Clear Swarovski Crystal Drop Earrings. For drinks the next day, reuse your accessories (yay, less packing!) but create a totally different look by wearing this gorgeous Myleene Klass Crochet Midi dress. Change your hairstyle and experiment with some of the colours in your make-up palette and nobody will notice you are a serial handbag-repeater!

For casual sight-seeing

For running around the day before the wedding, or checking out some of the local attractions, throw on something stylish yet comfortable. I love the relaxed look of these Superdry Super Skinny Cargo Pants teamed with this classic and crisp Definitions Sleeveless Blouse and a casual long line cardigan. This outfit is super versatile, so wear with this Myleene Klass Floral Skirt if you want something dressier.

Pop on a pair of comfy Carvela Minnie Patent Pointed Shoes and you’re good to go!
