What to Pack for Your Honeymoon

When packing for your honeymoon it is important to have a check list in addition to a few little secrets that make your wardrobe go further without bursting out of your bag. These are just a few of our recommendations on what to pack for your honeymoon (or any romantic getaway):

  • Fold up beach/travel bag (even if you are not going tropical, pack this extra bag so you have something to take extra purchases home!)
  • Toiletries: Shampoo & Conditioner, Additional hair products (Hair Dryer, Gel or Spray, Anti Frizz products, Hair ties & clips, Hair brush or comb), Razor & shaving gel & Moisturizers, Birth Control/Lubricant
    • Mini plastic bags filled with various medications: Imodium, Aspirin or Advil, A gentle laxative (just in case), your vitamins
    • Perfume & deodorant
    • Nail polish (to touch up) or even better - treat yourself to a gel manicure before the wedding. It should last through your honeymoon.
  • Clothing
    • 2 bathing suits (if you are not going tropical, one suit is fine)
    • Sexy PJs (hello, it’s your honeymoon!!)
    • Lingerie
    • One formal dress (unless your vacation has more then one formal evening planned!)
    • A chic, fashionable hat: this way your face is protected from UV rays
    • For every pair of shorts you pack, include 2 shirts with it (so that you can mix and match).
    • Pack one pair of pants along with two tops
    • Pack 3 sundresses - more or less depending on the length and location of your trip
  • Don't Forget: to leave a contact list to whomever is watching your house.  This way they can always contact you in case of an emergency
    • Bring something with SPF for your lips too. You do not want to spend your honeymoon with burned LIPS!
    • Have a secret stash of cash hidden on you at all times.
    • Bring copies of your passport & travel documents.
    • Have emergency contacts & doctor information with you & have a detailed list of you and your partner's medications.
  • Turn up the Romance: 
    • Try the Scandle Candle to heat things up...
    • The Tan Towel or Self Tanning creams with SPF.  Don't over-sun and risk a bad burn that will make you miserable the rest of the trip. Everyone looks extra sexy with some great tanned skin!
    • Splurge for a bikini or Brazilian wax before your honeymoon - make sure you talk with your aesthetician prior to your wedding about how long before the big day you should wax.
