The packing list is long when it comes to travel itineraries that extend beyond one week. And with the added pressure of “honeymooning,” sometimes it’s easy to overlook to the most obvious must-packs.
Above, I’ve highlighted three of the things I found incredibly valuable on our trip, as well as one item I wish I would’ve brought along.
Versatile Cover Up | $148
An easy-to-pull-on cover up that goes from breakfast to beach to cocktails and looks appropriate at all three is essential to truly relaxing and minimizing runs back to your guestroom. The lace trim neckline and cold shoulder detail of this Holy Caftan option are the perfect mix of sweet and sultry.
Jet Bags for Traveling with Wine | $14.99 for 3
One of my favorite memories from our time in Bora Bora was uncorking my favorite bottle of wine by our private pool during a drizzly afternoon. I’m so glad that we had the foresight to bring along a couple of our favorite bottles in our checked luggage.
Kindle Paperwhite | $99
From guidebooks for your honeymoon locale to magazines on the plane and novels for down-time reading, I love how easy it is to tote around the Kindle Paperwhite, rather than a bulky stack of books. It’s simple to download books using WiFi and if you have a local library membership, you can even borrow e-books for free using an app like Overdrive.
Beats Pill Portable Speaker | $170
One of the face-palm moments that we had during our trip was not packing one of our portable speakers. I love my Beats Pill speaker (although, we admittedly rely on Google Home most of the time these days) and it would have been ideal for playing music on the balcony of our guestrooms or as we set up shop on the beach.
These picks barely scratch the surface, of course. There’s a multitude of regular old travel needs (sunscreen! phone charger!) that you’ll want to remember, as well as all of the honeymoon gifts that friends and family have probably gotten for you. Narrowing everything down and smartly packaging it within your luggage can be a task, so pre-plan and pack ahead of time if you’ll be heading to the airport shortly after your wedding!
