Here are seven tips to help you pack for your honeymoon or romantic getaway:
Put a list together and review your activities
Start by putting a list for you and your partner. Before you can put a list of clothes, shoes, hygiene essentials and more, you need to know what activities you will be involved in. Consider what you’ll be doing in the morning, afternoon, and night. When you have a list of activities, you will pack adequately and not over or under-pack.
Start packing one week before the honeymoon or your travel date
Planning a wedding is not an easy task. Getting things done before the actual date will save you a lot of headache or panic attacks. Sit down with your partner and plan out your list, review the activities and start packing.
Get the bags ready to go with your clothes, shoes, essentials including hygiene and medical needs.
Double duty outfits
With the extra luggage fees imposed by most airlines for check in luggage, it helps if you pack outfits that can be layered or worn for different occasion. For example, a batik sundress can be worn on top of a bikini in the afternoon and double as a dress with a light cardigan or scarf at night for your night out.
An oxford shirt can be worn with a t-shirt and shorts in a sightseeing tour and worn with a tie and khakis at night.
The weather at your destination
To prevent discomfort or unnecessary purchase at high priced boutiques, check the weather of your destination. You don’t want to be caught unprepared for a cold spell, hot and sunny temperatures or rainy days with inappropriate clothes and shoes. Check out weather apps like WeatherBug.
Liquid items and TSA
Ever since 9-11, air travels have never been the same. You no longer have the privilege to bring huge liquid shampoo or favorite drinks from home on board in your carry-on. There is a 3-1-1 rule to follow, that is, 3.4 oz. bottle or less in 1 quart-sized Ziploc clear bags and 1 bag per passenger. If you are carrying liquid make-up, medications or anything liquid, this rule must be followed to ensure smooth security check in at the airport.
Six: Pack light and bring clothes that do not need ironing
You are there to enjoy each other, spend time together and have a blast. You will not have the time to bother with ironing your clothes or rely on housekeeping. Pack light and bring clothes that are not easily wrinkled.
Have space in your bag for souvenirs
Creating memories include shopping for that unique gift or souvenir. Keep some space in your bag for items to bring home. Having a carry-on with room for fragile souvenirs will allow you to bring back a piece of your memory in paradise.
