Getting married is an exciting time and every bride wants to make it perfect. From wedding festivities to the honeymoon after, every detail must be fine-tuned before she will rest and enjoy the experience. So much effort goes into the actual bridal attire that there is often little time to think about what to pack for the honeymoon. Here are some tips to make your job a little easier when planning your honeymoon wardrobe.
How Will You Be Travelling?
Perhaps the first thing you will need to consider when planning your honeymoon wardrobe is how you will be travelling. Is it going to be a long trip by air or sea? If so, you will want to plan for comfort as well as style. Soft and comfortable clothing such as the fashions available at Lavender Hill Clothing are the perfect choice. You definitely don’t want to travel in something that doesn’t wear well over long periods as it may be a long while before you can get into something ‘a little more comfortable.’
Keep an Eye on the Weather
Next you will want to know what the climate is like where you will be spending your honeymoon. Some couples visit several locations whilst others simply plan a honeymoon in some tropical paradise. If the weather is going to be hot and you are leaving the UK in winter, don’t forget to pack summer clothing! As well, keep in mind that an extended honeymoon spent in different climates will require you to pack clothing for each of those environments. Just prior to the wedding, make a quick check of the weather where you will be heading while there is still time to add a few items or take out unnecessary garments.
Where Will You Be Staying?
Another factor in planning your honeymoon wardrobe is where you will be staying. Sometimes the groom books a honeymoon at some grand and lavish resort whilst other times the happy couple simply wants some privacy at a beachside cottage. You certainly wouldn’t bring evening gowns to a cottage on the beach just as you wouldn’t wear sandals and shorts at the Ritz.
Sightseeing and Evening Entertainment
Finally, what kind of sightseeing and entertainment venues have been planned? Taking a tour of the Amazon would require totally different attire than what you would wear visiting some of Europe’s finest museums. Bear in mind that many venues have a dress code you should be aware of if you want to gain admittance, so call ahead if you are unsure. Men may be required to wear a jacket and tie for some functions whilst others may be laid back and casual.
A honeymoon should provide memories to last a lifetime and you wouldn’t want to remember spending too much time being uncomfortable or wearing totally wrong fashions. Each of these things only take a few moments but can make or break your comfort level on a honeymoon. You don’t want to waste your time shopping for clothing because you failed to pack accordingly. Spend that time enjoying your new spouse!
