This Bride Traveled the Globe in Her Wedding Dress and Took the Dreamiest Photos Along the Way
While some brides may spend
days weeks agonizing over what to pack for their honeymoon, Zoe Aust likely didn't have too much trouble prepping for her postwedding getaway — because she planned to spend most of it in her wedding dress. Zoe, who runs the Instagram account @MarryMeInTravel with her husband, Nick, rewore her white wedding gown in 33 different countries during a yearlong honeymoon. Talk about getting bang for your buck!
After exchanging "I dos" on Dec. 31, 2017, Nick and Zoe left behind their jobs in the United States to embark on a journey around the globe, making pit stops everywhere from Paris to Positano and Sydney to Singapore. In each city, Zoe posed for stunning photos while wearing her beaded Watters gown, often styling it according to her surroundings. She trudged through the snow, rode a bicycle, walked through deserts, and yep, even swam in the dress, making for some seriously breathtaking pictures (and proving that her gown is essentially indestructible).
"Life is too short to only wear your wedding dress once."
While speaking to People magazine about her adventures, Zoe told the publication, "Life is too short to only wear your wedding dress once. And the world is too big to only stay in your little town your whole life. Our hope is that when people see our pictures they feel nothing but inspired to explore a new place, try a new hobby, and fulfill that dream they've always had." Keep reading to admire all the beautiful footage from their yearlong voyage, and you'll most definitely feel overcome with that aforementioned sense of inspiration.
