With all the wedding preparations, it is most likely that you’ll end up spending no time on the details of the honeymoon packing list, especially when you will be in a hurry for packing the suitcase for your honeymoon! So thought we’ll give you some tips for you to take into account.
The luggage is difficult to prepare so far in advance because you still might be using some things that you’re going to be carrying with you like your creams, shoes, etc. But following these steps will help you prepare your suitcase and do the honeymoon attire shopping easily:
Must have items in your honeymoon packing checklist
Must have items on honeymoon packing checklist will keep you covered for emergencies and help you sail through your honeymoon with ease and wherever we have written as 2 copies, do ensure that you are keeping one with you and one in hotel or your travel bag so that you always have a backup in case of any emergency.
- 2 copies of Airline tickets or e-ticket confirmation for all your journeys
- 2 copies of Identity proof as Passport/visas/driver’s license
- Credit cards (take only those you’ll need)
- 2 copies ofHotel/theater reservation fax confirmations
- 2 copies ofTraveler’s checks
- 2 copies of medical and/or trip insurance coverage and prescriptions
- Contact details of your family and phone numbers for your doctor, house/cat sitter, and credit card companies (in case your cards are lost or stolen)
- 5 pendrives
- Mobile chargers and batteries as required for camera and mobile
- Travel locks (combination lock recommended — no key to lose!)
- ID tags for luggage (inside and out)
Daily hygiene and beauty Items for your honeymoon packing list
The first thing to do is make a list of all the items of hygiene and beauty that you use in a day. Go imagining since the time you wake up until you sleep, what all do you need? You wash your face, you apply a cream, brush your teeth! And at night? What do you need for your makeup? Check out this list for Health and Beauty
- Toothbrush & Toothpaste
- Cotton wipes for removing makeup
- Facial creams and soaps or body wash
- Wax, razor, etc.; whichever you might use.
- Sun block
Take only what you use the most, you do not need to carry the entire kit. After all, you’re the one who has to carry it eventually!
Base – Compact, liquid makeup, powder, concealer, whatever you use in this category.
Eyes – Shadows, eyeliner, mascara, eyebrow liner.
Mouth – Lip liner, lipstick, chapstick.
- Shampoo and conditioner
Some people do not usually carry shampoo, thinking that they’ll naturally find it at the hotel there, but we recommend you better take yours because the changing of shampoo can make your hair different and may give it a strange feel, perhaps more dry or greasy or maybe the shampoo of the hotel will favor your hair, but do not risk it. Better, get a medium bottle and take your own shampoo.
- Sanitary napkins/Tampons
Obviously, if you go on your honeymoon, you will have consulted your gynecologist for your napkins for the days you’ll be gone but it is worth it to take two or three packs of them as a precaution or maybe you’ll need them on your way back home. Anyways, prevention is infinitely better than cure.
Take the perfume that you like which you feel the most comfortable with, whether attractive, sensual, dynamic or romantic. You can take two if you prefer to use a soft perfume to wear for the day and another stronger and sensual scent for the evenings.
Regarding this, carry it only if yours isn’t bulky or buy just buy a new one that is easier to carry. As an alternative, you can carry a hair cream or foam to give body to the hair.
- Hair Accessories
Pins, clamps, scarves, etc.
So far, if you look closely, the list looks big but they are all small things that can be carried in a handbag easily. Now that the list is made, simply go ahead and buy them as they are the absolute essentials in the honeymoon attire shopping.
Clothes for Daily Wear on your honeymoon
Separate the clothes that you want to wear while travelling. They should be comfortable clothes like a pair of jeans, a shirt, and your tennis shoes but we recommend sandals because they are safer to walk in or run in if you’re in a hurry to catch the next flight or a taxi. Also, separate your underwear and your socks for that day and remember that on the plane or the bus, it is almost always cold, so you can take a light sweater tied around your waist or a jacket so that you’re not cold. It is vital in the honeymoon attire shopping list.
* Jeans: Remember that jeans can be worn twice or even thrice so carry two because they take up a lot of space.
These above items are for the beach or the city, but if you go to a place where it is cold, do not forget to bring:
* A jacket: The most comfortable.
* A cap
* Thermal clothing
* A scarf
And if you plan a romantic night out or gala dinner, we recommend you to take:
* A cocktail dress
* An evening dress
Clothes & Accessories for Private Moments on your honeymoon
Since you’ve separated the clothes you want to travel in, make a list of clothes for the rest of the trip and you can accordingly do your honeymoon attire shopping. Here, we present a basic list that can be considered according to the place you’re going and the number of clothes you choose to wear will be according to the number of days you’ll honeymoon.
Preferably, choose light dresses and fabrics that do not wrinkle so that you can put them in your bag without worry.
And for sleeping?
The honeymoon is always very romantic, so take your baby dolls and lingerie that you must’ve prepared for this special trip. The lingerie is an absolute must in the honeymoon attire shopping list.
Once you already have your list of clothing and the amount of clothes you want to wear, we continue with the accessories.
Footwear and accessories for your honeymoon
Shoes are the bulkiest, so you do not want to take shoes of all colors to match everything you wear. Better, choose the basics and combinable colors like black and white.
The basic shoes are:
* A pair of tennis shoes
* A pair of sandals
* A pair of high heels that match your cocktail dresses
* And if you go to a place where it’s cold, a pair of boots
With this, you can travel safely. Just remember that it is important to walk comfortably to enjoy everything with your partner. Comfort is not fought with beauty, so even if you dress comfortable, fix your hair, your face, put on some nice accessories (necklace, earrings, bracelets, etc.) that do not occupy a lot of space in your suitcase and make you look awesome too.
Regarding your bag, we recommend you take only one medium sized bag and a handbag where you can keep the wallet, keys, eyeglasses, and camera. Try not to carry too much while travelling.
A list of good to have items on your honeymoon packing list
Finally, make a list of some extra details that you want to take with you. Here are some ideas:
* Take one or two massage oils. This is a very good therapy for the couple and very exciting.
* Also take candles that do not take up much space in the suitcase so that you can light them to make the atmosphere more romantic.
Essential Medicines in your packing list
It is important to take a tiny bag with a few aspirins and Pepto as sometimes, you may feel their need. You should also include
* Shout Wipes (instant stain-treater towelettes)
* Anti-bacterial liquid or lotion
As a final recommendation, travel light and comfortably. Remember that what most will make you look the most beautiful on your honeymoon will be your smile and that weighs nothing and will take no space in your luggage.
Also remember that the foremost thing for any honeymoon attire shopping is to plan it wisely first.
Bonus tip to reduce stress on your honeymoon
Try to leave behind the below for our family and friends and commit to them that you will call them on pre defined dates so that they are comfortable when you are away on honeymoon.
* Your itinerary and hotel phone numbers
* Photocopies of your passport, credit cards, and traveler’s check receipts
* A sealed copy of your wills, life insurance-policy numbers, and pertinent financial info
Hope we have covered all the essential items for both bride and groom and also remember that if you take too little, you will have to end up buying the same from somewhere else. Try to review the honeymoon planning checklist and ensure that you are travelling light as well and the list of items we have listed above ideally wont add to your travel luggage and excess baggage fee.
We hope everything goes well for you and remember that it is best to go well prepared. Good luck and safe trip!!
