8 Honeymoon Essentials For The Modern Bride

Passport? Tick. Travel insurance? Check. Sun screen? Factor 40 in the beach bag! Here’s eight honeymoon essentials every modern bride needs to pack when jet-setting off as a newly-wed in style. 
When it comes to the honeymoon, the last thing you want to do is forget any of those must-pack honeymoon essentials. From the clutch that’ll see you through from day to night (and is light enough not to push the limit on your luggage allowance) to the Travel Tech-Tidy that keeps all of your loose cables and adapters in order, luckily for you, we’ve jotted down a list of eight must-pack, honeymoon essentials that every modern bride needs to remember. 

#1 Clutch It Tight

Keep all your essentials close at hand on the honeymoon with our super sassy Straw Wifey Clutch Bag (£19.99). Perfect from poolside to bar, this fully-lined, medium brown clutch arrives with a detachable wrist strap and shoulder strap in tow, meaning you can wear it any way you please.  

#2 Denim Dreams 

Let everyone know your newly-wed status with For The Love Of Pearls’ Wife Life Denim Jacket (£110). Perfect for slipping over lighter honeymoon threads if there’s an evening chill, you’ll get total heart eyes over the highly embellished (we’re talking sequins, beads and pearls) words ‘Wife Life’ on the back. 

#3 Level Up Your Headgear 

No honeymooner should be without our Bride Embroidered Sun Hat (£14.99). Whether you’re drinking cocktails and enjoying tapas in Marbella’s Old Town or lounging poolside in Italy, our gorgeous straw sun hat not only keeps you cool, but its perfect from hen party to honeymoon.  


#4 Honeymoon Scent 

Prada’s latest Eau de Parfum Refillable Spray, Paradoxe, available at The Perfume Shop, is not only the perfect size for popping in your handbag on the honeymoon - be it day or night - but it’s iconic triangle logo shape is totally ‘Gram-worthy too. Bringing forth top notes of Neroli, heart notes of amber and base notes of musk, this little beauty is quite the show-stopper in the fragrance department. Go on, make it your honeymoon scent! 

#5 Sleepy Head 

After the stress of the wedmin and the excitement of the big day itself, make sure you get your eight hours by stashing our Bride Luxury Satin Eye Mask (£4.99) in your suitcase. Crafted from super soft pink satin, this nifty number is perfect for everything from a quick forty winks on the plane to an indulgent full night’s sleep in your honeymoon hotel. 


#6 Bring Out The Bikini 


If your honeymoon destination promises warmer climates, don’t forget to pack your favourite bikini! If, like us, you always end up packing 72 bikini and swimwear options, and end up only wearing one, make sure its got a cool bridal vibe! We love this Cream Contrast Knit O Ring Detail Halterneck Bikini Top and Bikini Bottoms, not to mention the matching Cream Contrast Knit Tie Side Sarong, all from Pretty Little Thing! Pair with our Bride Embroidered Sun Hat and you’ll be beach-ready in mere minutes! 



#7 Let Your Newly-Wed Status Shine 

Revel in your new ‘Wifey’ status on your honeymoon with our beautiful new Wifey Crystal Bracelet (£4.99). Ideal for teaming with everything from your bikini to your favourite beach dress, those stunning turquoise blue beads will glitter enchantingly under the sun’s warming rays. 


#8 For The Tech Gal

Can’t leave the country without everything from your favourite USB cable to your trusty ear buds and portable power bank? We hear you. Luckily for you, we stumbled across Daisy Park’s super stylish Bookaroo Pink Travel Tech Tidy. Keep all your cables, ear buds and chargers safe in one place and avoid those annoying tech-related hissy fits (‘I’ve lost my adaptor again!). Available in black, copper, pink, brown and mint, there’s one to suit every bride’s style.
