The big awaited vacation is here and you don’t know exactly what to pack for your honeymoon (or how much)! This isn’t as hard you might think. My philosophy is pack your classic favorites, a few fun things, and forget the rest! Because most couples travel somewhere warm for their honeymoon, I’m basing my suggestions off of that assumption…and because that’s where I’d want to go too! We’ll be traveling to the Dominican Republic for a friend’s wedding this summer so I’ll be packing a lot of these items myself! And for more inspiration and ideas, check out my Honeymoon Pinterest board!


 The idea is to bring pieces that you can easily mix and match. You don’t want to have to think about picking out clothes on your vacation. It’s time to relax and have fun! Try sticking with the same color palette: all neutrals, pastels, or bright colors, for example.


  1. Comfortable Tops and T-shirts: You’re going to be in a warm place, most likely, so pack comfortable t-shirts, tanks and tops to keep you cool.
  2. Sunglasses: It’s important to protect your eyes, especially in the more Southern regions of the world.
  3. Simple Jewelry: Bring jewelry that will go with everything (and that you won’t mind getting lost or stolen!).
  4. Romper or Maxi Dress: Be sure to bring a nice and light weight romper or maxi dress that you can wear as a cover up or to dinner.
  5. Casual Pants and Shorts: think cool, cool, cool! But bring comfortable bottoms that you can hike or walk around in too.
  6. Sun hat: I love a hat that’s easy to pack like this one. I scored it on sale at CVS a few years back and it’s my favorite! You need to protect that pretty face while you’re spending so much time in the sun!
  7. Sexy Lingerie: It is your honeymoon after all!
  8. Comfortable Walking Shoes: In case you decide to be adventurous and explore the area. The last thing you want is for your feet to hurt or get blistered and not be able to enjoy the trip.
  9. Bathing Suit: Just bring a couple of your favorites! No one will notice if you wear the same one twice 😉
  10. A Good Book: If you’ll be sitting by the beach or the pool (or on an airplane!), bring a long a good book. I LOVE “Redeeming Love” by Francine Rivers. Such a great love story and perfect for a honeymoon read.
  11. Sandals: Because you’ll most likely be spending your time at the beach, duh. But bring ones that can also double as a dressier shoe for dinners out.
  12. Beach Bag: You can also make this your travel bag so you don’t have to pack it in your suitcase. It’s nice to have a versatile bag with you on your trip.
  13. Sunscreen: It’s a must! If you listen to me about anything, let it be this. Please wear lots of sunscreen! There’s nothing like a sunburn to ruin your trip….and make you look like a tourist! 😉 And try to bring your own since buying it at a resort or hotel will be twice the price.
  14. Cute Pajamas: Something practical, but pretty, that you can sleep in and also stay cool.
 I hope this helps! Don’t forget to check out my Pinterest board for more ideas or my collage to shop these items! What essential items will you be taking with you?
