Love Destination Weddings! The idea of a few days of one fabulous activity after another is my kind of holiday. We have received so many questions for suggestions, that we dedicated a chapter in our new book, Packing for Travel to the subject. Where some dread the process, we embrace planning our wardrobe with gusto. First, check the weather, then start a Packing List and imagine a color scheme that works for the time of year and the destination. We went shopping at Bergdorf Goodman and found these event-appropriate dresses, and accessories in shades of the season. For purses, we shopped Eponymous Bags. Their Taylor Clutch is a fabulous way to pack one bag and with the addition of a panel, you change the look of the bag.
For the Rehearsal Dinner, we love this fall floral by DvF for its flattering shape and ease of packing. Here we chose the Eponymous Taylor Clutch in black, and kept the accessories simple against the backdrop of the vivid pattern.

For the main event, the Wedding Ceremony and Reception, this CMV sheath is our best pick. We love the slight shimmer in the deep, rich shades of the season. Add a Gold Striated Panel to the Eponymous Clutch. Glam up the look with some statement earrings, and fabulous heels. Don’t for get your wrap for chilly evenings.

The Sunday Brunch is a lovely way to wind down the weekend. This M Missoni knit is a winner with a fabulous pattern and texture. It can be dressed up or down and we chose a more laid back look, with thick heeled sandals and the sleek Eponymous Hobo Bag.
