I had a similar situation, but since I was going to China, it was easy to figure out the attire, a Chinese wedding dress (which travels very nicely!). What is the current style for wedding dresses in New Zealand? Personally, I would do a simple floor length gown in a shade of white (ivory or light champagne) in a fabric that doesn’t wrinkle easily (but if you cover in large garbage bags, then carry in a garmet bag, wrinkles should be minimum). If they do veils, I would probably also have a little fun with a small birdcage veil. You are still newlyweds, afterall!

I think something lighter in color – ivory or pale blush maybe would still be lovely and bridal, it is a vow renewal after all. For the people in New Zealand this is the event they can attend so they want to feel it is something special so I wouldnt go too casual. Tea length or a simpler long dress in flowy fabric (I am thinking like J Crew ones I see on here) with a birdcage veil or fascinator/hair flower would be beautiful – we like fascinators here so it wouldnt be unusual 🙂 Plus you can always get a dress steamed once you get here if needed so dont worry about wrinkles too much.

@Olivia247:  if you wanted to wear your dress again you could get it steamed when you arrived.

i agree that a simple floor length white/ivory/champagne dress would be the best 🙂

I’d take your dress over and get it steamed, that way it is more like you first ceremony and the family that didn’t get to attend that still get to see you in your dress
