A Handy Honeymoon Packing Checklist

If you’re lucky enough to be planning a special trip for after the Big Day, this honeymoon packing checklist might come in handy! There’s so much to organise for the wedding alone so adding a holiday in to the equation (which can come with a serious amount of planning too) may leave you a little frazzled. Worry not, check out all you’ll need to pack for your trip of a lifetime below…

14 Fab Honeymoon Buys for Newlyweds

Packing Tips

1. Make sure to check the weather in advance – hot climates like Sri Lanka may have gorgeous sunny days but they have rainy season too so you may need a rain mac.

2. Give yourself a few days to get your things together – and make sure you check your baggage allowance so there’s no surprise fee come the airport.

3. When it comes to choosing your outfits, try and pick pieces you can easily mix and match and plan outfits in advance!

4. It’s a holiday like no other so you may want a statement dress or playsuit for your final night or a special dinner. Make sure to pick up some pieces you love so you’ll feel amazing!

5. Accessories can really take your look from day to night! A cute clutch or statement necklace will instantly jazz up an LBD for instance.

6. We love the idea of keeping the bridal vibes going with some pretty white pieces! Check out some fab white buys here.

7. If you’re adventurous or plan on plenty of exploring, don’t forget some comfy shoes you’ve broken in.

8. Looking to make your trip extra special? Check out some adorable accessories you can pick up from Just Married Luggage Tags to Mrs clutch bags.
