Packing for Your Honeymoon & Beyond
Check the Weather, First
First thing’s first, check the weather first! You’ll want an umbrella and some cardigans if it’s going to be rainy, and a hat if you’re headed somewhere hot and sunny. Make a list so you don’t forget anything. Your list should include: clothes, shoes, workout clothes, swimwear, evening wear, toiletries, a camera and anything else you use on the daily.
For a Long Weekend
If you’re headed out with the fiancé for a long weekend, you’ll want to pack mix and match pieces. Pack three tops, two bottoms and one dress in coordinating colors. You’ll be able to create at least six different outfits with this mix. Don’t forget to pack a light cardigan for indoor dining or airplanes where temps can often be quite chilly!
For a Tropical Honeymoon
Sunny days are ahead for you, so bring two sun hats, an umbrella (just in case!) and plenty of sunscreen. You’ll also want to bring and roll up a beach bag that can stow your towel, book and other beach essentials. As far as outfits, a few swimsuits and tunic dresses that can transition to evening are the way to go. Pack sandals and a nice pair of wedges for the evening and a lightweight sweater since island nights can often get chilly.
Extra Packing Tips
Accessories take up little space yet can make a drastic impact on your outfits, so pack several! Try everything on before you pack so you’re certain you love all of your looks, that includes ensuring what you’re bringing is comfortable and makes you feel confident. When in doubt, take a few pics so you can be sure you love your look and can recreate it at your destination.
