What to Pack: The Destination Wedding

In just two weeks I’m heading off to sunny Puerto Rico for a destination wedding I’m in of one of my oldest friend’s. She’s getting married at the stunning El San Juan Resort & Casino, which means a fun-filled week of celebrating is on the agenda!

Of course, this means I’m already fretting about what to pack for my vacation. Because this isn’t just any vacation, it’s packing for a tropical vacation, and packing for a destination wedding. Two totally different animals with plenty of activities to think about.

The Rehearsal

We’re wearing our fun Bridesmaid shirts for the rehearsal and doing a casual night for dinner. So some sandals and a fun summer skirt are what I’m thinking for a tropical-meets-bridesmaid look.

The Beach

Well, we can’t go on a tropical island without spending at least some time at the pool, right? While I’ll be hiding under an umbrella, coverup, hat and big sunglasses, I can at least do so in style. I’m all for “laying out” with a cocktail in hand, as long as the sun isn’t on me. I’m a total maniac about keeping my skin away from the sun because just like everyone preaches, it’s the first thing to age you. Speaking of, I’ll be packing plenty of this:

Those are just a few of my favorite travel beauty products. If I weren’t donning a bridesmaid gown, I’d be shopping for a fun dress to wear to the wedding. Here’s some ideas:
