How to Pack for Your Honeymoon

While we don't usually cover what to wear on a trip with your guy, we did get a special request for advice on what to pack on a beach honeymoon. How could we say no?

In general, on your honeymoon, you want to keep everything pretty, flirty and romantic. After all, you did just get married a day or two ago--give your husband a few extra reasons to be overjoyed that he married you. While you don't need a whole wedding trousseau, your honeymoon is still a good excuse to splurge on a few new outfits.

For day, we love this casual, gauzy cotton tunic from What Comes Around Goes Around. You can wear it when you're exploring the town with some smokin' gladiator sandals (ours are from Bottega Veneta) or over a bikini to the beach. The gold trim on this Kate Spade Tortola Kei bag makes it chic enough for town but since it's straw, you won't mind taking it out to your ocean side cabana. And just because you're in the tropics doesn't mean you should skip the jewelry--these wood and jade earrings from Sand Jewelry scream "Beach Goddess!" Finish the look off with a pair of tortoiseshell over-sized Dior shades to leave the locals guessing if you're famous.





Dressing sexy at the beach can be a challenge. You want to flaunt some skin, but not too much and wear color without looking too sweet. This one-shoulder Tahari dress has it all going on, thanks to a print that will have you looking like you stepped out of a Gauguin painting. The zebra print Kate Spade straw clutch adds a surprising, flirty touch. As much as we love what stilettos do for our legs, they have no place at the beach. Wear those spikes and you'll sink in the sand. Wedges, like these DVF gold ones with jeweled strap, on the other hand are tailor made for the beach. The Rebecca Norman cuff has smokey quartz and green tourmaline to bring out your tan.

Of course on a honeymoon it's just as important what you have on underneath your dress. Show off your new status with these Hanky Panky Mrs. Thongs.

I love this post! coming from a jaded 20something with a fear of commitment, you actually make married life (at least the first few weeks of it while on honeymoon) sounds fabulous.

btw... can I ask what the inspiration for this was? Is there something I don't know? Are you getting married?? :)

LOL-No! But I'm now looking at going to Grand Cayman at the end of the month since Mexico fell through. These outfits would definitely work there, too!

Actually our flights were canceled and rescheduling was a headache. We'll make it to the Ritz Carlton Cancun yet!
