Your ultimate beach honeymoon packing list

Go all-out fashionista with our ultimate beach honeymoon packing list

Tickets, toothbrush and passport with your new married name might be the obvious things to include in your ultimate beach honeymoon packing list, but at Bouquet Catch we don’t like obvious. Here are what we deem the essential fashionable, practical and more unique items to take away with you on your first beach holiday together as a married couple.

Sultry swimwear

You’re practically going to be living in your swimwear, so whether you go for a two or one-piece, pick something that you feel body confident in, and pack options. You might get bored of your new favourite black bikini after about day 4. Go experimental with low backs, cut-outs or go strapless to avoid tan lines.

Kaftan/cover up

As amazaing as you may look in your bikini, it might not be appropriate (or comfortable) for you to wear one sitting down for food or popping into a shop. Take a crochet dress, cool kaftan or sarong – these simple pieces of fabric not only hide a multitude of sins, but are super easy to throw on top of your swimwear and really light to pack.

Lingerie

With over half of all UK couples admitting to not consummating their marriage on their wedding night, think of your honeymoon as a time to really shine in your bedroom attire. Go for angelic whites and creams (coloured lingerie can be a bit tacky) and pick cool fabrics like silk, satin and cotton. Just remember that just because it’s your honeymoon, it doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune on lingerie. Be confident in what you’re wearing while staying true to your style – and your groom will love you for it (he’ll no doubt be more interested about what’s underneath anyway)! Oh, and fluffy heels are optional.

Perfume

Scent is one of the most powerful triggers of memory. Pack the perfume you wore on your wedding day to bring it all back in an instant.

Sun tan cream/tanning oil

OK, so the first one is absolutely essential and the second one is just a bit silly. Make sure you protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays, in particular at the beginning of the honeymoon when your skin is most vulnerable. You can always decrease the factor as time goes on. And yes, tanning oil isn’t great but the coconut one smells divine and is perfect to use for a holiday massage…professional or from your spouse.

Glamourous dress/jumpsuit

Take a dressy-dress or all-in-one for your first and last nights to really wow your new husband – this is an essential part of your ultimate beach honeymoon packing list. Maxi dresses are great beachwear and can be dressed up perfectly with jewellery, while bodycons or playsuits with heels will really show off those tanned pinned (more the last night than the first)!

Comfortable shoes/walking shoes

You may plan on doing nothing but lazing on a sun lounger for two weeks, but you inevitably do more walking on a beach holiday than you think. Take a couple of pairs of flip flops, and flat, comfy sandals. If you think you’ll be doing something a bit more adventurous, pack a pair of close-toed shoes or trainers.

Waterproof camera

What better way to capture the fishes and shots of you kissing underwater? Ideal if you decide to go all adventurous with diving or snorkelling.

Sunglasses

Pack two pairs. You will sit on one otherwise. And remember to take them off for at least SOME of your photographs – your family and friends will want to see picures of your face, not just your designer eyewear.
