Your wedding is coming up and it's a day when you strive to look your absolute best. Between a stunning dress, makeup and hairstyle, you'll be picture perfect all day. With so much emphasis on the wedding, sometimes your wardrobe for the honeymoon takes a back seat at packing time. However, that doesn't have to be the case. Follow these tips and your suitcase will be well stocked when it comes time for that romantic getaway.
Always Consider the Destination
When you're packing for your honeymoon, where you're going (and the season) can make a huge difference in what you pack. Vermont in the winter is a far cry from Tahiti any time of the year. If you're planning a getaway to someplace warm and beachy, you'll need clothing to match. Flowing swimsuit coverups and your favorite bikini are just the beginning. Be sure to include lightweight fabrics, especially if heading somewhere humid.
If wintertime skiing is your idea of the perfect trip, it's the perfect time to invest in some new ski gear. Of course, some ski attire and equipment take up considerable room in your luggage, so it may be worth it to consider renting what you can at your destination. Warm clothing is a must and layering is important as well.
Start With the Basics
What honeymoon would be complete without the right undergarments. Lingerie is a must, but also make sure to consider what underwear you'll need for certain outfits. For example, if one night includes wearing a long flowing but figure hugging gown, consider packing footless tights that can help you smooth any problem areas.
Bras and panties are a must, of course, but they don't have to be boring or uncomfortable. If you want to show a more playful side, consider briefs instead of your traditional undies. They are fun and oh so comfortable too.
When it comes to packing clothes for any trip, suitcase space is a big consideration. You want to have enough clothes for most occasions, but that's not always realistic. The key is having several pieces that can do double or even triple duty. A simple black dress, for example, can be accessorized in different ways for different occasions. Fancy jewelry and heels make it perfect for a night on the town while tights and a sweater give it a more casual vibe. The devil is in the details for sure when it comes to changing up an outfit. Good thing they are easier to pack. Grab a scarf or two and some colored tights and you'll be ready for sightseeing or dining out.
The last thing you want to do is get to your honeymoon destination and realize you've packed all the wrong stuff. If you follow our advice and keep these tips in mind, you'll have everything you need for a great time, no matter where you go or what time of year it is. Looking great doesn't have to be a chore, with a little planning it can truly be effortless.
