We’re running a fun feature this month on different wedding destinations and their unique styles, thanks to Rent the Runway, who is providing the inspiration. Last week, we touched upon the beautiful Napa/vineyard-inspired weddings.

This week, we’re heading to the American north-east, to the unforgettable Nantucket island.


If you are unfamiliar with Rent the Runway, it’s an online service that provides designer dress and accessories rentals. They have a perfect dress for every occasion in your life. Really! With a selection of over 50,000 dresses and 10,000 accessories from famous designers, there’s something for everyone.

So what it is about Nantucket that places it in our #2 featured wedding destination?

Well, it’s a quaint, beautiful county and island which happens to be a popular wedding destination for couples in the region. Close to the mainland, it’s easily accessible by boat, and has stunning wedding halls by the water. For Nantucket wedding style, think shades of blue inspired by the ever-present surrounding waters, classic, pretty, stripes and beautiful ladylike embellishments. Plus, think of summer warmth with soft breezes – so thin, comfortable dresses are all the rage for guests, brides, and bridesmaids alike.
