With all of the commotion caused by the wedding prep it becomes easy to overlook the planning and packing for the forthcoming honeymoon. The honeymoon is known to be the most relaxing aspect of all of the wedding festivities that allows you to focus solely on your newly pronounced spouse, but many brides tend to put off their plans of organizing and packing until the very last minute. There are basic wardrobe pieces that are always included in every brides suitcase - from lingerie to her favorite swimsuit - and then there are those pieces that we like to call “Staple Pieces”, the special newly-bought pieces that help to make each moment of your trip more memorable and stylish.
Certainly we believe that it’s unnecessary to pack a suitcase full of brand-new clothing for your honeymoon, but it’s always nice to have those surprise pieces that your spouse has yet to see you in. And this just doesn't include barely-there lingerie. Whether your in search of a new maxi dress or new pair of sandals for you beach style getaway, we’ve got you covered. We’ve listed 10 wardrobe must-haves for any summertime honeymoon escape, that will leave you looking fabulous from a candle lit dinner with your love to a day of lounging on the beach.
