5 Essential Honeymoon Packing Tips
Your honeymoon is approaching slowly but surely and you don’t really know what to bring and how to properly pack for it? Look no further because we’re here to help you out! Here are five essential honeymoon packing tips, so check them out and get down to business!
Pack clothes with layers in mind
Layering is one of the most beneficial techniques you should master, so be sure to pack your honeymoon bags according to it. Of course, your layers will depend on the destination and the time of the year, but a good rule of thumb is to have three tops for every pair of pants. Besides that, you should also keep the colour palette basic – at least when it comes to the bottoms – so that you can come up with outfits much easier. Then pack a trendy cardigan and a casual sweater as an extra layer, as well as a lightweight coat which is a great idea during spring and autumn. Even a waterproof windbreaker is a good choice, so don’t forget to pack it if you’ll be having an active honeymoon.
Bring extra essentials
Of course, the decision on what’s essential is totally up to you, but we have to remind you that bringing extra essentials is an absolute must. This is particularly true when it comes to traveling across the world, where the last thing you want to do is to pop into the drugstore to buy a toothbrush or your favourite shampoo. So, pack your essentials wisely and you’ll get to enjoy the beauties of married life at their finest. Apart from your trusty skincare and makeup products, you should also get your prescription glasses and sunglasses, since these are an important part of your honeymoon – as well as a few trendy swimsuits you need to bring, too!
Don’t forget the lingerie
Do we even have to emphasise the importance of attractive lingerie on your honeymoon? Not really, so pack your favourite sexy pieces and surprise your hubby. As such items are quite delicate, make sure to put them into a separate bag to keep them from getting tossed around. Of course, we aren’t saying that you should go overboard with provocative lingerie –three or four special items will make a huge difference without taking up too much space in your bag. A silky negligee is a great way to have comfy PJs while also counting as lingerie, so take it into consideration and you won’t make a mistake!
Narrow down your shoes
When it comes to your footwear selection, you should stick to the ‘less is more’ rule and narrow down your shoes as much as possible. If you’re doing a more adventurous honeymoon, a pair of comfy shoes is crucial, as well as a pair of hiking boots. Even rain boots are more than welcome to keep your feet dry in unpredictable weather. A pair of stylish gladiator sandals will complement your casual combos and take them to a whole new level. On the other hand, you should probably forget about high heels – unless you’ll be having a romantic dinner!
Remember that separation is key
Last but certainly not least, you must know that the way you separate your clothes, footwear, and other essentials in your suitcase also plays a huge role – especially when you want to travel as lightly as possible. Apart from maximising the space, you’ll want to arrange the contents of your bag strategically in order to keep everything clean and wrinkle-free, so put heavy items such as shoes at the bottom of your bag. If there are interior side pockets, use them for toiletries, medicines, and underwear. Small objects like belts should be kept on the perimeter, whereas books and other items that aren’t in your carry-on can be used as barriers in your suitcase, if necessary.
As you can tell, there are a lot of things you should bear in mind when it comes to packing for your honeymoon, and these five are undoubtedly the most important ones out there. All you need to do is to stick to our tips and you’ll accomplish this task like a real pro – that’s a promise!
