What to Pack: Honeymoon Essentials

This post comes from our blog intern, Aubrie!

As tradition has it, you’ve walked down the aisle and sealed your vows with a kiss, cut the cake, and celebrated until the early hours of dawn. Naturally, now it’s time for a little rest and relaxation. If you’re a couple that has a knack for travel and a serious case of wanderlust, then the honeymoon should be the perfect grand finale after tying the knot! Hopefully you’re crossing a special destination off your bucket list and jetting off somewhere warm and tropical where the sun will rejuvenate your soul. Whether you’re bidding your guests adieu and boarding a flight to a gorgeous setting, like Bali, Greece, Japan, or Hawaii, you’ll be embarking on the first of many adventures together as a married couple. From lacy intimate sets to summery date night ensembles you’ll want to pack all the essentials for an unforgettable getaway with your beloved.

While lounging in your honeymoon suite, you’ll want an ensemble that makes you feel confident, flirty, and feminine. The beautiful details in these silk pieces make them feel very special but still effortless. An oversized button down casually thrown over lace undergarments creates an “easy like a Sunday morning” approach to intimates.

For the duration of your stay, your only agenda item should be to make the ocean your oasis. Plan to bring plenty of swimsuit options for every day under the sun. I love the versatile nature of this crochet set. By simply adding a wrap skirt over your bikini bottoms and a Panama hat over your salty tresses, you’ve gone from paddling in the foamy surf to sipping on a cocktail at the local beach bar.

Picture a candlelit dinner for two looking out onto the rocky cliffs set against a backdrop of the rich hues of the setting sun. The key to evening wear on your honeymoon is to marry sultry with a summery flair. Flowy maxis, easy pants, and one knockout pair of chunky heels are worth taking up a good amount of space in your luggage for all those romantic date nights together.
