In honor of Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine and Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo's 1-year wedding anniversary, stylist to the stars Anya Sarre shares the items and inspiration you'll need to plan a gorgeous destination wedding in true celebrity style.
Create a luxurious resort-chic style much like the nuptials of the couple, who hosted their wedding at Flora Farm in Los Cabos, Mexico. The dreamy celebration combined a relaxed vacation feel with the luxury and glamour of a rock star event. Implement hues of hot pink and pops of orange into the décor scheme, along with inspiration from the surroundings to design a spectacular sojourn for you and your guests.
Have fun with your color palette. Select colors that contrast with the natural setting of your venue. When using a bold color in your décor scheme, be sure to pair it with a neutral metallic such as gold or pewter for a balanced, polished look.

When selecting your gown, consider the conditions of your wedding-day surroundings. For a destination affair, choose a dress that isn't too heavy and travels well. Your guests will take some of your favorite wedding photos without you ever being aware. To prepare for candid images from any angle, utilize a 3-way mirror during your dress fitting to make sure you look perfect from all corners.
