Our eight destination wedding gowns offer versatile and contemporary bridal glamour

Dreaming of a wedding in the sun? Here are eight destination wedding gowns we love, whether you want a look for a beachside celebration or an outfit to ensure you keep your cool at an alfresco party closer to home

Destination wedding gowns remain one of the key trends in bridal – and no surprise really given that so many couples dream of saying ‘I do’ on the beach. But this is a look that is very much in tune with modern weddings, offering relaxed and versatile silhouettes that suit classic UK garden parties or glamorous day-to-evening celebrations. Our pick includes lightweight gowns with sparkling details, elegant off-the-shoulder designs and fabulous two pieces with on-trend details such as front splits and cut-out panels.
