What to Pack for Your Honeymoon

Along with the adventure of starting a life together. Brides and grooms are making adventure part of the honeymoon itself, from hiking and camping to snorkelling, skiing and more. Whether you’re planning a destination wedding or going someplace special afterwards, be sure to include high-performing sports prescription glasses if you wear prescription lenses. What to pack for your honeymoon? Here are some essentials to include when you’re packing for your honeymoon, wherever you plan to visit.

Use Hotel Amenities

No matter where you’re heading after saying “I do,” don’t take along unnecessary items. Call the hotel for a list of things that come with the room. Hairdryers are standard nowadays, along with soap, shampoo, hair conditioner and body lotion. Depending on the hotel, you may also be treated to complimentary items such as these:

  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Mouthwash
  • Shaving Kits
  • Shoe Shine Kits
  • Sewing Kits

Also available for the asking are things like earbuds/headphones, dental floss and makeup remover. Different hotels also offer signature amenities, such as bath salts or take-home slippers and robes. Anything you don’t have to pack leaves more room for other items. It also means you have less to worry about at the airport.

Sports Prescription Glasses

Tropical islands are a popular honeymoon destination for many couples. If you’re heading to a sunny beach, sports prescription glasses and sunglasses should be at the top of your packing list, especially if you’re planning to participate in water adventures, hiking or anything remotely athletic. Sports glasses are typically sturdier, made of shatterproof materials, lightweight, and include moisture-absorbing pads on the bridge that keep them from slipping down your face.

Waterproof Camera

Smartphones are fantastic for capturing memories, but you don’t want to take it along on the water, where it can be easily dropped and sink out of sight or sustain water damage and be useless. Invest in a waterproof camera that can catch all of the reef action while you’re snorkelling, kiteboarding or boating. Throwaway, waterproof cameras from Kodak and Fuji are a less expensive option, but the quality of underwater photography is nowhere near what you’ll get from a brand-name camera.

Versatile Clothing

Many people pack more clothes than needed, hoping to be ready for any and every situation. Choose versatile clothing instead, the kind that can double for both casual and formal wear with the addition of a jacket. Remember that you will have access to laundry, so use it and wear the same pants with a different shirt on a second day. Pack lightweight shoes that complement more than one outfit, and remember that you will have an outfit on, as well as shoes when you arrive, so count that, too. Think of versatility in bags, also, and choose one that you can take on the aeroplane and to the beach.

Packing Light Is Key

After the stress of planning a wedding, why not give yourself a break and make the honeymoon a more casual affair? Packing light—and remembering essentials such as sports prescription glasses—is the key to getting through airports, cabs and hotels in an orderly fashion that leaves you in a good mood for enjoying each other and your trip.
