Packing for your Honeymoon: A Warm-Weather Getaway

Planning your honeymoon at the same time you plan your wedding can be overwhelming. From deciding where in the world you'd like to go, to determining the activities you'll participate in and everything in between, there are lots of decisions to make. SPANX® has you covered with the ultimate honeymoon packing list for a warm-weather getaway. Trust us when we say packing will be the last thing on your mind the week of your wedding, so we took care of the thinking for you.

Your honeymoon is the perfect excuse to splurge on a few new outfits and even a new luggage set. An Away suitcase set for you and your new beau will help you look smart on the go. It is even designed with a charger so you won't have to worry about missing any photo moments because your phone died in transit to your destination. Personalize your luggage with your new monogram, or take it one step further by outfitting it with interior organizers from Away to help keep everything nice and neat. 

Swimwear

Swimsuits are what you'll be wearing most if you are heading somewhere warm and sandy! So don't be shy when packing suits. Throw in a few different styles that you feel confident in. Packing separates that mix and match will ensure a fresh look without over packing. We are really digging the high-waisted bottom trend.

A cover-up is also a wise idea to wear to and from the resort. It will help protect your skin from the sun. Look for a cover-up with sun-protection built into the fabric.

Undergarments

This should be a no-brainer, but, sometimes the basics are what we forget most often. Pack enough Under Statements™ Thong for each day. They won't take up much space and laundry most likely isn't on your agenda. Under Statements™ Thongs are the perfect panty for a paradise getaway because they're quick drying and moisture wicking so it's okay if you get splashed by the waves or sweat a little in the scorching temperatures.

Undies aren't the only thing you'll need. Don't forget something sexy -- it is your honeymoon after all! Try the Black Spotlight Lace Bodysuit from SPANX®. It's designed with graduated mesh that targets your tummy and keeps you feeling confident while offering the softest, lightest shape possible. Trust us when we say the spotlight will definitely be on you.

If you're planning on wearing a bodycon dress, we recommend throwing in a pair of Skinny Britches® Mid-Thigh Shorts. They provide the perfect base layer under any outfit and remove any visible panty lines. Not to mention, the fabric is breathable which is perfect for warmer climates.

After a full of activities, throw on a Bra-llelujah!® Bralette. The Bra-llelujah!® Braletteis comfortable and lightweight but also offers support throughout the night. You'll even forget you put it on! The Happy Daze pattern is perfect for a tropical getaway. Pair the bralette with cute PJ bottoms or some Cheekies.

Athleisure Wear

We don't know about you, but we pack athleisure wear everywhere we go. Athleisure wear can serve two purposes. Perhaps you want to get in a quick run on the beach before the day gets going or maybe you and your husband have a hike planned for the day's activity. We love SPANX® because not only do they give you a flat gut and great butt, but they have tons of cute styles. This means you can throw on a jacket after the hike and be ready for a day-date at a local lunch spot.

Here's an athleisure outfit that we think would look great in paradise:

Active Shorts paired with the Workout to Waves Sports Bra® is perfect for a day hike. If you're stopping for a quick bite after, throw on a cute crop top. You're in paradise so there's no need overdress. Just swap your tennis shoes for the cute sandals like these Espadrille Sandals and you're ready to go. Keep them in your Straw Basket Backpack, also from Target. 

If shorts aren't for you, opt for some Active Cropped Leggings. They are easy to dress up or down depending on the day's activities.

Daily Outfits

A few stylish outfits are a necessity but there is no need to over pack here since you will most likely be living in your swimsuits. Pack something nice to wear at dinner and something flowy for happy hour. And if you're considering a night out on the town, pack a pair of Faux Leather Moto Leggings. Pair them with some strappy heels and a lightweight top -- you'll not only be super comfortable throughout the night but you will most definitely turn heads with this edgy but sophisticated look.

Accessories

You definitely need a customized sun hat, no ifs, ands or buts. Be creative with a fun saying like: Honeymoonin', Beachin', or 5 O'Clock Somewhere. Or, your new last name is always a great option. 

Don't forget your sunnies, clutch and flip flops. A couple of pairs of colorful earrings are never a bad idea!

Toiletries

Sand in your skin. Sun on your face. It's important to keep your skin routine intact even while on vacation. Don't forget to pack face wipes, a cleansing lineup and most importantly sunscreen. 

We hope this list helps you prepare stress-free for your honeymoon. Not going somewhere warm and need some ideas, let us know and we'll help you create a packing list!
