With fall wedding season in full swing, many of you brides-to-be are nearing the end of wedding planning mode with your big day just around the corner. YAY! You’re likely moving on to plan for what comes next – the honeymoon!
To help simplify the process for you, I’ve partnered with my fashion blogger pal / resident newlywed Carolyn Zerbonia of Lipstick & Chiffon to bring you a three part honeymoon style series. We’ll tell you how to pack for a variety of climates before you jet-set with you newly minted spouse. First on our list of climates is my personal favorite: the tropics!
Honeymoon Packing Tips, Part 1:
The Tropical Honeymoon
When packing for your tropical honeymoon, Carolyn recommends packing versatile pieces that you can wear with different outfits to help lighten your luggage. This is especially useful for packing shoes, which are often the heaviest pieces in your tropical wardrobe. For instance, you can pair the same strappy heels with a couple of light, flowy dresses and your favorite gemstone statement jewelry.
Try to pack pieces that can be mixed and matched to create multiple looks; this will help save space in your suitcase.
An added bonus to packing light for your honeymoon? You’ll have more space to fit souvenirs on the flight home!
If you’re honeymooning in a tropical climate, chances are you’ll be hitting the beach.
A floral bikini with a lacy white cover-up is a stylish & romantic combination well-suited for a new bride.
Complete the look with pair of strappy, beaded sandals that can transition to night time. But be sure to leave your jewels in the hotel safe to protect them from damage in the sun & surf. (Remember your summer jewelry care rules here!)
