DESTINATION WEDDING? DON'T FORGET THESE 10 THINGS
Wedding season is fast approaching - in fact, I'm in the middle of planning my own in the South of France. Believe me when I say - weddings abroad are lots of fun when you're a guest but planning one is a logistical nightmare - it's not like you can nip to the local shops if you forget something.
If you're anything like me, you need a hell of a packing checklist. Here are the must-have essentials I have on my list:
Nars Orgasm Illuminator, Clarins Tanning Oil Drops, Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser
If you don’t trust the local make-up artist to do a good job, why not do it yourself? Book a make-up lesson at Harrods to get some tips beforehand. The cost of the session is redeemable against the price of the make-up.
Hunzag Jean Bikini, Lucy Folk Cartouche Sunglasses, & Other Stories Woven Straw Tote Bag, Artesano Toscana Crochet
OUAI Wave Spray, Moroccan Oil Treatment, Valet Tortoiseshell Hair Slides, Ganni Scrunchy, Alighieri Apollo's Dance Hair Slide (main image)
5. The Skin Protection
The last thing you want on your wedding day is a big old mossie bite or an inconvenient tan line. Lather up with sensitive sun cream Ultra Sun to avoid any greasy marks or breakouts and take a mosquito net with you for extra precautions! To keep your skin refreshed, toned and moisturised in the heat try Caudalie Grape Water Spray. For maximum effect keep it in the fridge when you can - so refreshing to use around the pool when sunbathing!
6. The Jewellery Box
Is an outfit even an outfit without a gold accessory or two? (Not in our book). Here are some of our top wedding jewellery must-haves:
Alighieri Flame Earrings (main image and top right), OWN Molten Hoops, Zoe and Morgan Ketama Gold Earrings
10. The Luggage
If you're anything like me you'll have spent a small fortune on excess baggage! Use this lightweight suitcase from AWAY as your carry on as it has an in-built phone charger which always comes in handy. To feel special from the moment you leave the house book the AirPortr service - they collect your bags from your doorstep and put them on the plane for you - more time, less stress.
