After Jeffrey and I got married a little over six years ago, we ventured to the amazing country of Morocco for our honeymoon. When I started packing for our trip, I was excited to bring along my favorites for the special occasion, but I also wanted to avoid the risk of overpacking. I quickly learned it’s best to keep it simple with a few special pieces, plus your everyday essentials.
While some couples depart immediately post-nuptials, others opt for a sweet getaway down the road. No matter your travel plans or the destination in mind, I’ve compiled some of my favorite honeymoon packing essentials – from a versatile tote and chic wallet to travel-ready toiletries and wellness musts.
Whether you’re hopping on a plane or cruising in a car, the Wardy New Handbag from Isabel Marant Étoile is my ultimate travel companion. I snagged the black color from last season, but this season’s new hues – like the dark grey above – are even better. The luxe leather exterior and spacious interior with zipper pockets make this bag perfect as a carry-on for the plane.
The Jerome Dreyfuss Obi Wallet is a must for stashing away valuables, like credit cards, passport and cash. The chic design features eight card slots, a coin compartment with zipper, inside bill compartment and snap closure. I also like to pack the smaller Yoda Wallet if I switch to a smaller bag for a day trip or evening out.
As a frequent traveler, I know the value of a good toiletry bag. And since it’s your honeymoon, you’ll want only the best. The Inflight Travel Case from Anya Hindmarch is my absolute favorite for a few different reasons. It features two sections, that keep all of your necessities organized and all in one place, plus it’s transparent for easy accessibility. TSA will like it too.
When it comes to packing toiletries for your honeymoon, I find that the perfect mix of comfort and luxury is key. I can’t leave home without Susanne Kaufmann’s Deo Stick and Davids Natural Toothpaste. I weaved these two all natural products into my daily routine a little while back and absolutely love them. They are free of toxic ingredients and they get the job done – doesn’t get much better than that.
When it comes to skincare, I like to splurge and try new products I’ve had my eye on. It’s no secret that my current skincare routine includes all things May Lindstrom. This summer I’ve been toting around The Jasmine Garden Facial Mist, especially while traveling. It’s the perfect mid-flight refresher or post-makeup enhancer. UMA’s Wellness Oils are also a favorite for their Ayurvedic qualities that help promote body and mind balance. I like to apply Pure Bliss Wellness Oil post-flight to help fight jet lag.
A special congratulations to all the newlyweds and best wishes for creating a lifetime of happy memories together! No matter what you pack or where you go on your honeymoon, don’t forget to enjoy every last drop.
