Don't know where to start when it comes to packing for your honeymoon? Before you spend hard-earned cash on a brand-new vacation wardrobe, here is a list of things you'll actually use vs. what you only think you'll need (ahem, six different négligées).

Bathing Suits

What you don’t need: A bikini that will make you look two sizes slimmer and magically transform you into a bronze beach goddess. Try not to fixate on aspirational wardrobe items during what is destined to be one of the most stressful times in your life — wedding planning. Don’t put pressure on yourself to drop 30 lbs. before the honeymoon in order to squeeze into a string bikini.

There are plenty of sexy options out there for every size. Do get something that’s a little adjustable, so it won’t fall off if you do actually drop a few pounds.

Versatile Clothing That's Easy to Layer

What you do need: Whether you’re cruising around the Caribbean or backpacking in the Himalayas, you'll need pieces that you can easily shed or add on as temperatures rise or drop. Pack a variety of different tops — tanks, short-sleeved shirts, and long sleeved-shirts, as well as a nice pullover or two.girl on balcony Find a swimsuit cover-up that you wouldn’t be embarrassed to wear to a restaurant or, if you’re honeymooning in colder climes, a jacket that will look good with day and evening wear. Research what weather conditions will be like at your destination during that time of year, and check the forecast before you plan to leave!


What you don’t need: A full week’s supply of sexy (but overly complicated) lingerie. Remember, you’re about to embark on your honeymoon, not a burlesque tour. Sure, lingerie doesn’t take up a lot of space, but there may be a few nights when the two of you really just want to, you know, sleep. Plus, you’re not going to feel like strapping and buckling yourself into some sexy get-up every night.

WANTED: An Inexpensive Disneyland Honeymoon

by 2bemarried

My fiancee and I are getting married next June in a modest, intimate wedding, and would like to be able to also afford a honeymoon also, but our budget is severely limited ($700 or less).

Ideally, we'd love to afford 2 round trip tickets and a nice hotel for 3 days, 2 nights in/around the Disney area. I'd like the price to come in under $200 a person. I can't seem to get that from any online vacation package broker (I've tried Yahoo Travel, Orbitz, Expedia, and even a Disney-specific travel agency, to no avail).

And the biggest wrench in this whole idea is the 2-day, 2 adult parkhopper passes to Disneyland. These tickets are VERY expensive... to the point where the cost puts us over what we can afford to do.
