Packing can sometimes be a guessing game and packing light and packing for a honeymoon are on opposite sides of the spectrum. However, if you do some planning you can make informed decisions about what you’ll most likely need. Most of the time, packing really isn’t as difficult as we make it. You’ve just committed to one person for the rest of your life so packing for a week-long trip should be a cinch after that big step.
Since by now you know where you are going on your honeymoon, you’ll be able to pack accordingly. For instance, if you are going to a fancy upscale resort restaurant that requires “dressing for dinner” which is a jacket for gentlemen and a cocktail dress for ladies, you’ll want to know that. Be sure to include clothes that provide comfort and versatility. Treat yourself to a few new wardrobe items – maybe take some fashion risks that you wouldn’t normally take. If you’re going to an island or a resort, include some Hawaiian shirts or pretty sun dresses. It’s best to pack the clothes you want to wear instead of buying them at the resort. Sizing and pricing will surely be an issue on site.
If you’ll be honeymooning on the beach be sure to pack skin and lip protective products. Nothing can spoil a vacation like second degree sunburn from the scorching island sun. If you hate sand on your feet, sprinkle a little baby powder on them and the sand will come right off.
If you’re going for the cooler more mountain type setting, pack products that may combat skin drying. Lipstick and other make up accessories may not be as necessary if you’ll be spending nights in front of a camp fire. Shoe wear is key. Make sure to pack shoes that are appropriate for what you will be doing. Water shoes, casual walkers and 4-inch heels may all have a place during your honeymoon, but make sure you have the right footwear for the adventures planned.
