How to Pack for Your Honeymoon | Arden Photography

Don’t get me wrong, your wedding day is DEFINITELY something to look forward to and enjoy, yet the (hopefully) slight stress and nerves that culminates into one day can pass by like a blur if you don’t take care to breathe it all in. Receptions usually do the job of loosening everyone up after a long day of hair and makeup, photos, tending to guests, you know… the works, BUT, where you FINALLY get to relax is during your honeymoon. One on one time with your new partner in life is high on the list of priorities after months of planning and waiting to officially call each other yours.

So, for that much deserved R&R, I’ve culminated a list of how to efficiently pack for your honeymoon, no matter the location. It’s much better to be over prepared than to be franticing last minute during an experience where you should be able to slow down and focus on your significant other.
