Congratulations! You are now officially married. And what’s next? The long-awaited honeymoon in a tropical island. Packing efficiently ensures that you are prepared to have a fantastic time.
Before loading up your suitcase, it’s a good idea to research your specific destination as individual locations may have varying requirements for the time of year in which you are traveling; look out specifically for seasonal rains or dramatic changes in temperature; and also local customs. Also, call the place you will be staying and ask specifically about what they will be providing. After all, there is no need to pack things like a hair dryer if they readily provide one. Here are the things you should not missed in packing:
- Cool Tops
Choose some basic tops that you can mix and match. Light colors work great to keep you cool in the heat and also enhance your new sun-kissed glow. Pack a balance of predominantly short sleeve tops paired with a couple of long sleeves. Button-up blouses can be excellent cover-ups for bathing suits, added to shield yourself from a slight evening chill, paired with jean shorts or a maxi skirt for casual attire, tucked into an embellished miniskirt for a sexy night on the town, and even be a handy tool when performing a flirty strip tease for your new husband!
Longer pants of a thinner material are great in tropical climates and also comfortable for the airplane ride. Jeans are always an easy and practical staple for any trip. Additionally, bring two pairs of shorts; shorts of a lighter weight can slide easily over bathing suits and are great for water activities, and jean shorts can be worn for laid back trips through nearby towns or relaxed drinks in an easygoing bar. Remember to always keep the local (potentially conservative) culture in mind in consideration when choosing lengths.
Skirts are a great tool to maximize outfits and feminine, even flirty looks. These will have to be washed less often than if they were dresses and can be worn with multiple pieces for varied effects. While your maxi skirt should be bright and billowy, choose a shorter skirt for a fun night out or that can double as a cocktail attire.
Dresses are a must in any tropical destination! Pack a sundress that is a color that is bright and summery with a flirty hemline that bounces about the knee to make you feel girly and romantic. Secondly, pack a dress that will make you feel irresistible and sexy as the two of you enjoy candle-lit dinners and intimate dancing. You can always pick up a sundress as a souvenir at your destination in a beachy motif to get into the local vibe.
While you will want a few practical travel undies, this is your honeymoon and your time to shine! Make him say “wow” with sexy lingerie or corset dresses and don’t skimp out. Pack a bra with convertible straps for versatility as well as one that is comfortable inside your corset dress in Dubai for those days where you’re more active.
- Bathing Suits
It is wise to bring not one, but three different bathing suits. If you want to save space, get a couple of reversible bathing suits. You”ll be spending the majority of your days wearing these light-weight pieces that take up minimal space in your luggage, so it will be nice to not have to wash the same one on a daily basis.
