What to Pack for the Honeymoon

First things first: bring your passport, driver’s license, cash, credit cards, and copy of your marriage license. Double-check that you have your itinerary, reservation / confirmation numbers, and addresses of places you plan to stay. Bring a GPS if possible; at the very least, bring a map of the area.

Check out this list of essentials:

For the Beach

o sandals / flip flops
o beach towel
o swimsuit
o tank tops
o skirt or sundress
o shorts
o jeans
o sunglasses
o sunblock
o a book

For Sightseeing

o cargo pants or khakis
o tee shirts
o running shoes
o bug spray
o light jacket
o small backpack
o camera

For Nightlife

o high heels or flats
o dress
o accessories / jewelry

For Lounging

o lingerie
o robe

Other Essentials

o socks
o underwear
o toothbrush / toothpaste
o deodorant
o nail file
o makeup
o feminine hygiene products
o hair dryer (& any other hair appliances you require)
o travel size shampoo, conditioner, soap, shaving cream, razors
o hairbrush / comb
o lingerie bag
o aspirin
o addresses for people you’d like to send postcards to

Just in Case

Leave the address and phone number of your hotel with someone back home so they can reach you in the event of an emergency.
