Your honeymoon is meant to be a relaxed, romantic way to start your marriage. It will not be as enjoyable if you do not have everything you need.

It is vital to pack properly before embarking on your big adventure. You will want to remember all of the essentials without carrying too many suitcases!

 So, where should you start?

1. Visualize Your Travel Experience

Unless your honeymoon happens close to home, you will need to schedule extra travel time. Every newly married couple should pack what they need to enjoy their time between destinations, especially if you will be on a long flight.

Filling a carry-on bag with jet-setting essentials like earplugs, noise-canceling headphones and extra charging cables is a smart idea. Bring lotion for the dry air that triggers skin irritation at high altitudes and carry a pack of gum to reduce any anxiety.

2. Daydream About Your Destination

Destinations will change what you should pack for your honeymoon. The skiing jumpsuit that would keep you comfortable on the slopes would be a waste of space if you’ll spend your honeymoon on the beach.

Consider your style preferences while packing for your specific travel destination. Warm climates call for breathable clothing like athletic shorts. You might also bring the latest trendy one-pieces and swim trunks if you’re planning to go swimming. Don't forget the flip flops!

3. Plan Your Activities

Your honeymoon should include fun activities. Planning them before leaving home will help you pack more efficiently. For example, you’ll need form-fitting scuba fins and a snorkel if you’ll scuba dive together.

Leisure time will also be part of your honeymoon. You may find that your hotel room is chillier than expected. Everyone should pack a hoodie for additional comfort during late breakfasts or meals on your hotel balcony.

4. List Your Essentials 

What do you both need to feel comfortable away from home? Brides often bring an essential oil diffuser for their hotel room, while grooms pack shaving kits designed for luggage bags. It’s also wise to prepare for anything by bringing necessary documentation such as:

  •  Driver’s licenses
  • Passports
  • Copies of insurance plans

If anything goes wrong, you will both have what you need to get back to enjoying your time away from home.

5. Pack Health Necessities

Don’t forget anything you’ll need to stay healthy and happy on your trip. Experts recommend bringing health essentials in travel bags, such as:

  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Prescription medications
  • Sunscreen

Listing these necessities and checking them off as you pack will help you remember what’s in your bag. You will also have a list to help you collect everything when it is time to return home.

Gear Up and Get Ready!

Have FUN creating a list of everything you’ll need to enjoy your honeymoon! You and your partner will be prepared for any potential situation, so you can relax and enjoy your quality time together.
