So, we’ve come up with basic and escape-worthy assortments for your honeymoon suitcase.

Let's first start off with the basics. Absolute basics so you don't need to make any list - this is your best bet to start your journey!

Absolute Essentials in Your Carry case: Handbag + Backpack 

  • A good wallet that can store all your passports, copies and more. We found Urby that's affordable and can monogram your wedding hashtag on it. 
  • Airline tickets (printed or on your phone)
  • Phone chargers
  • A tiny water bottle so it can fit anywhere.
  • Wet wipes
  • Passport, visas, driver's license; Identification 
  • Credit cards (take only those you'll need). Add a Starbucks card in - I got a free Macchiato with extra foam free after multiple trips in Madrid. Yeehaw!
  • Hotel confirmations on phone
  • Download these 4 apps for the important stuff: Google Translate, Uber, Airbnb are the basics. Tripit manages your itinerary. Spotted by Locals helps find new places from locals for you. 
  • Two sets of photocopies of all of the above, plus a photocopy of related medical and/or trip insurance coverage and prescriptions 
  • Phone numbers for your doctor, parents, boss and credit card companies (in case your cards are lost or stolen)
  • Vitamins
  • Birth control and condoms 
  • ID tags for luggage
  • Camera or in our case, Fuji Instax 
  • Headphone splitter if you guys wanna watch a movie together. Universal Travel Plug. Earphones with rhinestones just in case you're feeling like a Kardashian. Also, your powerbank. 
  • A small beauty bag ( Essentials will come in later in the story)
  • Ziplock bags for packing wet swimsuits or underwear
