Finding the perfect destination wedding dress is easy. There are so many choices. Grab your maid of honor, your sister, and your mother and start shopping. Here are some top places to find destination wedding dresses:
Traditional department stores. Traditional, upscale department stores often have dresses for a destination wedding. They just aren't labeled as such. Look for them in the formal wear or resort wear departments.
Bridal shops. Although traditional wedding gowns are their mainstay, more and more bridal shops are stocking a selection of destination wedding dresses and casual wedding gowns. Call ahead to see which shops carry what you're looking for.
Online retailers. You can buy almost anything on the Internet and destination wedding dresses are no exception. Online retailers include BeachComberBride.com and eDressMe.com.
Resorts. As destination weddings become more and more popular, some resorts are offering destination wedding apparel. Sandals Resorts, for instance, offers a full line of dresses for the bride, bridesmaids, and flower girl -- with all of the accessories.
Destination wedding planners. If you are working with a destination wedding planner (and you should; they can save you money and time), ask about destination wedding dresses. Many such firms also offer a selection of wedding attire.
