Happily ever after! The wave of weddings postponed by Covid is coming towards us with renewed joy and fanfare. Post Covid getting together to celebrate love, family & friendship has taken on a more poignant feeling.
Pre Covid every wedding was a Destination Wedding whether across the globe or in your own town. And guess what? They are coming back strong. Yippee! The festivities begin just following the Ceremony Rehearsal – guests may be invited to join the wedding party for the Rehearsal Dinner or often the guests assemble afterward to toast the couple-to-be.
If you have read the book, Packing for Travel, you know I suggest to choose a color scheme for traveling. It simplifies packing enormously as everything goes with everything. I was feeling rather pink this summer and went shopping at Saks.com to find some great choices for what to wear to Destination Weddings.

For the rehearsal dinner, a cocktail dress will put you in the mood to start the celebration. I fell in love with these two festive frocks then added some pearl accessories to complete the feminine fetching mood.

Then onto the wedding day activities which can range from “you are on your own,” to tightly scheduled plans. Typically late afternoon or evening is showtime – the wedding and reception and an opportunity to look your best. Often the main event is followed by an After Party where the festivities continue well in the wee hours.
Weddings call for a special touch, here two Zimmerman beauties perform the ceremony with elegance and ease. We paired with a few floral flourishes and another pair of sandals that can take you across the grass (or sand) and onto the dance floor.
Say I Do to This Perfect Pair
The next day brunch is on the menu and where the celebration continues, supplying a little hair-of-the-dog and much needed nourishment. It is sometimes pool side and a decidedly more casual affair. Time to let your hair down while keeping your stylish vibe going strong. How brilliant are this pair of Lemlem luminous shaded pop on-frocks. Add a little rattan to rock the look and top with sunhat and shades.
Brunch & Bloodies
Entertained guests return from whence they came having enjoyed an entire weekend of non-stop fun and looking forward to a little R&R. Destination Weddings are back and here to stay – bring them on!
Wait! There’s more. We have our very own Covidial. Louise Winifred Klopp born February 10, 2021. The story continues.
