Carry-On Essentials for Destination Wedding Guests

We know more than anyone that prepping and packing for a destination wedding involves a lot of organization pre-takeoff. There’s so much to consider: footwear, and formalwear, then accessories and hair tools. Not to mention checking the weather for any last-minute surprises. After all, no one likes to be unprepared halfway across the country—or the world. And because we also know that flying right now can be more stressful than usual, here are a few things you can bring with you onboard that can make you feel relaxed and at ease. 

Ulla Johnson Reversible Floral Face Mask, $20

The designer, a favorite among fashion It-girls, used floral fabric from past seasons to craft chic face masks that are as stylish and they are safe. Wear it on the plane, then wash it for rewearing during your trip. 

Parachute Mini Stripe Beach Towel, $49

Headed somewhere sandy? This classic Turkish towel is lightweight enough to throw in your carry-on so that it can double as a blanket on a long flight and a shawl at dinner on breezy nights. And yes, of course you can tote it to the beach, too. 

Patchology Getaway Plan Kit, $20

Tuck this TSA-friendly set of four masks (two facial, two eye) into your purse for the ultimate in-flight experience. Start by applying one pack of the eye gels, then lay a face mask over your entire face for five minutes. Then sit back and relax.

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen, $17

This mini version of a classic is tiny enough to get through security, but powerful enough to protect your skin, even when a wedding ceremony is in the direct sun. The best part? The invisible formula blends into any skin tone.

Chantecaille Pure Rosewater, $32

This travel-sized spray-on mist is a lifesaver after enduring the dry air on a flight. Just a few spritzes of the antioxidant-packed formula can wake up your skin—even if you’re totally jetlagged.

Domino Magazine, $48 for a year subscription

Domino, the chic-but-approachable design magazine, is filled with so many memermizing homes and entertaining ideas that you won’t even notice the screaming baby in the aisle behind you. And if you’re lucky, catch the annual weddings issue, curated in part by our friend, Shira Savada.

Clare V. Leopard Wallet Clutch, $149

Use this cute zippered pouch as a place to store your headphones and cords when you’re in-flight. Then, once you land, you can wear it with any LBD for wedding-related activities.
