Honeymoon is one vacation that every newlywed couple looks forward to. There is a lot of anticipation and excitement since this is where a couple begins their bonding. However, this vacation can turn sour if you have forgotten to pack your favorite dress or the surprise gift for your better half. Therefore, it’s a good idea to pack your honeymoon suitcases well in advance. Don’t wait for the wedding to get over and avoid last minute confusion.
Make a list of all the things that you would be carrying with you for the honeymoon. You can keep adding and subtracting as you wish.
Start by deciding on the dresses that you will be carrying. If you plan on buying some new ones do that soon. Have all your clothes well washed, ironed and bagged. This way you will simply have to put them in the suitcase. When packing clothes take into account the weather of the place you will be vacationing. Don’t carry fabrics not suited for the specific weather. Also select shoes accordingly. You might do a lot of walking so take your joggers. But you are also allowed to pack one pair for special dinners.
Keep all your underwear in a cloth bag to be packed inside the suitcase. Your jewelry, money, traveler’s check should also go in a small bag that can fit in your hand baggage. Don’t carry all your expensive jewelry.
You don’t want to be worrying about keeping it safe when you should be having fun. All electronic items like hair dryers, curlers and cameras should be packed safely to avoid any kind of damage. Toiletries like toothbrush, paste, shampoos, body and face washes should be kept to a minimum. Most of the toiletries are made available to the guests by the hotels.
Don’t overstuff your bags just because you want to show off to your spouse. You will have plenty of time to do that once you are back from your wedding holiday. Besides, you need some space to bring back gifts and souvenirs from your honeymoon.
Take only what you use. Don’t even think of carrying clothes and shoes you have stacked at the bottom of your wardrobe. Chances are you will not be using them even on your honeymoon. By packing sensibly you can travel light and also avoid paying extra charges at the airport.
