For a thrilling and spicy honeymoon, all you need is love, some SPF, some great outfits, your passport…. Ok, so the list is huge.

For making your long-awaited honeymoon trip more practical and fun-filled, you need to figure out what to pack and what not to pack beforehand. I am sure you don’t want to drag a giant suitcase with you.

Make sure that you put (mostly) essential items on your carry-on bag and follow these tips to spend a worry-free honeymoon.

1. A carry-on:

There is a list of travel essentials that you can’t afford to miss such as your ID card, passport, cash, credit cards, booking confirmations, etc. Amidst all of the excitement, you are very likely to lose or abuse your very important belongings, right?

You need a classy passport holder or a small carry-on for these essentials. Matchy-match accessories are quite in right now. You’ll easily find coordinated travel accessories including cardholders, travel pillow, luggage tag, phone charger cover, and other cute things from any online store or your nearest store.

2. Check the weather:

While your honeymoon is incomplete without a pair of extra hot lingerie, your other clothes should be strictly according to your destination’s climate, the activities you plan, and your length of stay. Of course, this is very important because you have limited space.

If you and your partner are planning to romance in a tropical paradise, all you will see is water, sun, and sand. Similarly, some places are cold and nobody wants to be surprised with chilly evenings and cancel their plan to go outside because they don’t have warm clothes. It is advised to install a weather app and use it when packing your outfits. Try out space-saving techniques

3. Try out space-saving techniques:

We all have our personal space-saving method when it comes to organizing things. If you don’t know any, it’s the perfect time to watch some YouTube videos and learn some tips and tricks. Rolling clothes into tight rolls can literally create extra room for souvenirs.

Similarly, packing cubes is more effective for adult human clothing. Search for handy organizers from IKEA to help you squish all your stuff into a single bag.

4. Consider taking a backpack with you:

You might have seen female travelers carrying a backpack instead of purses. Ever wonder why? Weight displacement creates an uncomfortable feeling.

They are convenient for a long day out and come with extra room. With a sturdy backpack, you can pack your skin and lip care essentials like lip balm and sunblock. After all, daylight recreation would be boring if you can’t smooch your husband with your nice plump lips!

Pro tip: Just because it has a huge size it doesn’t mean that you should be bringing your laptop with you.

5. Take an instant camera:

You need to keep a default memory-keeping gadget with you all the time while being on your honeymoon. Capture those sweet little moments with your partner so that you can relive them again.

A handy instant camera is a travel must-have. Don’t forget to pack two or four packs of extra films with you so that you don’t miss any chance to capture a moment with your partner.

What you need to avoid (completely)

· Overdoing it: You want to pack everything with you to help you look great and have a great time but don’t overpack. Stay stress-free by sticking to your checklist and packing the absolute necessities.

· Leaving it for the last minute: You just got free from the wedding preps and you’re already tired. But your honeymoon is as important as your big day, so don’t leave your home with any regrets and plan early.

· Packing things you never worn: If you haven’t worn them your whole life, you’ll not wear them on your honeymoon too. Don’t pack anything that’ll eat your space.

· Overthinking: Every woman does this. But honestly speaking, stressing over the whole packing thing will steal your joy.

· Allowing someone to pack for you: Unless you trust this person 100%, don’t ask them to pack your luggage. The person who should be packing your clothes is YOU.

Final verdict:

Honeymoon is a de-stressing trip by default. However, the key to a thrilling and fun-filled holiday is planning early and wisely. Follow these tips and spend the most magical days with your spouse.
