1. Start packing early 

You’re busy enough prepping for the big day, so preparing your packing list a few months early will help you kickstart the process of dashing around various stores to gather any last-minute travel supplies.

Find quality phone lenses (like this one) or apps (like this one) which are designed so you can take and edit truly gorgeous images, perfect for you to take gorgeous selfies during your trip.

3. Dress in similar colors 

Simply pick clothes in the same color scheme and stick to it. Love blue and red? Then bring outfits in varying shades of blue and red for maximum efficiency and an infinite world of mixing and matching options!

4. Only pack the essentials

Invest in some travel bottles and fill these with the essentials: a good moisturizer, sunscreen, and an excellent luminizer (we’re especially loving this cult product!). Your skin will look dewy, pretty, and glowing for all your photos.

5. Pack five great shoes

There’s really no reason to bring more than five trusty pairs of shoes: sneakers for hiking, flip flops for beach days, a few pairs of flat sandals for exploring, and a pair of heels for fancy dinners.

6. Roll your clothing 

Take your delicate pieces, like anything made of silk or lace, and roll these up as tightly as you can. Then, wrap clothes made of heavier materials like cotton or wool around these delicate pieces to ward off those pesky wrinkles.

How to Keep your Honeymoon Stress Free

Travel inherently has the potential for being stressful, even if that travel is to celebrate one of the greatest occasions in life. Here are Wanderable’s tips to keep your honeymoon as happy and as tension-free as possible.

Do your research:  Are you going abroad or staying domestic? Whether you need to construct travel itineraries or get vaccinations and passports in order, do your research and plan accordingly. Planning in advance will help to avoid unnecessary stresses along the way.

Book or at least plan local transportation:  If you plan well enough, then you’ll have more time to enjoy your destination. Find a hotel that is within walking distance of the local attractions or figure out the transportation details beforehand! Depending on where you’re headed, you may need to research buses, trains, flights, boats, or even ferries.

Consider travel insurance:  A wedding and a honeymoon can be two of the most costly experiences a couple will have. It’s wise to at least consider buying travel insurance, in case of an unexpected emergency such as a natural disaster, illness, etc. Weigh the pros and cons and decide if travel insurance makes sense for you. It can be especially helpful if you are going abroad or buying an all-inclusive trip.

Pack as lightly as possible:  We know it’s your honeymoon and you want to look good, but no traveler has ever said, “I wish I were lugging more stuff around.”

Pack snacks:  If there is one thing we have learned through our own travels, it’s that a hungry traveler is a grumpy traveler. Don’t let your blood-sugar highs and lows mess up your mood; always be prepared when you set out for the day and bring simple things to munch on.

Bring a daypack:  Daypacks come in all different shapes and sizes, from a hip leather satchel to a not-so-hip fanny pack. Daypacks help you prepare for the unexpected. It is always convenient to have an extra sweater, an umbrella, some snacks, a camera, a drink or two, and any other necessities. Before you leave the hotel, pack anything that might come in handy in case you decide you want to spend the entire day out and about.

Take it all in and stay present:  The wedding is over and you have nothing to stress about. Put work and home-life aside and relax. Even if you have the most demanding job on the planet, this is a time when everything else should fall away. Turn off your cellphones and your laptops and completely disconnect.

Don’t worry about schedules or hiccups along the way. Most of all, just sit back and enjoy one another’s company. There’s truly nothing more important than that.
