the 10
things to pack for a destination wedding


Much-lauded for her whimsical sensibility and unerring eye, Bay Area raised, Paris-educated designer ERIN FETHERSTON applies that signature flair to every aspect of her eponymous clothing line—and everyday life (just look at that perfectly quaffed do!). Gleaning accolades from industry cohorts—she was inducted as a member of the CFDA in 2009—and Hollywood starlets alike (her frothy gowns are favorites of it-girls Taylor Swift and Zoe Deschanel), it's no wonder that the demand for her unique brand of femme-meets-glam has skyrocketed.

Fresh off the heels of her Barbados nuptials, we knew designer Erin Fetherston would be just the gal to share her destination wedding packing list.

    Lisa Marie Fernandez Poppy Bikini

    No trip is complete without a swimsuit. I love this one because it's "something blue!"

    Smythson 'Over the Moon' Notebook

    I made sure to take some time to write down some of my favorite memories throughout the trip, so I can always look back and remember them well. Plus, my time in Barbados definitely had me inspired, so I threw some sketches in here, too.

    Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Instant SPF Mineral Powder

    I love the sun, but I always protect my fair complexion. Though I lathered up with SPF daily to keep safe in the sun, this was the perfect way to touch up on the go.

    Oribe Impermiable Anti-Humidity Hair Spray

    For any trips to humid places like the islands, this is a lifesaver for strands! It keeps frizz at bay so you can style your hair without stress.

    Erin Fetherston Gatsby Dress

    I carried on my wedding dress just to be safe, but my suitcase was packed with a few little white dresses for the weekend, too. This "Gatsby Dress" is one of my favorites from my spring collection and perfect for any pre- or post-wedding festivities.

    Lemlem Gabi Scarf

    This is a great piece to stay warm on the plane or when it gets chilly at night. It's so soft and cozy!

    K Jacques St. Tropez Epicure Sandals

    To give my feet a break, simple leather sandals are a must! I wore these all day so I was ready to slip into heels at night.

    Diptyque Lavande Travel Candle

    Wedding planning is exciting, but also hectic! To help me unwind and enjoy the weekend with my family and friends once the fun began, I brought a Diptyque travel candle. The soothing lavender scent was an easy way to de-compress and reflect on the special memories we were making!

    Vanessa Bruno Sequin Tote

    This is a versatile carry-all for any pre-wedding errand-running and it can double as a chic beach tote.

    Restørsea Rejuvinating Day Lotion

    Traveling can zap the moisture from my skin but using Restørsea moisturizer helped keep my skin hydrated and kept me fresh-faced. And it has the added bonus of SPF.
