You see everything through rose-tinted glasses on your honeymoon, and we are sure the excitement can blind you a little, especially when it comes to the packing. It can be very easy to go overboard while packing for your honeymoon, or realise you missed out on important things- so here is some help at hand! Here are somethings we feel should be missed and some which absolutely should not- another checklist for you :P

What To Miss
- A heavy or small suitcase! Make sure your luggage is lightweight so you can make the most of the weight limitations.
- Valuables (leave your real jewellery behind- even the engagement ring)
- Too much cash (Access a good amount and carry bulk of it in a Forex card and some in cash)
- Too many 'options'. Don't randomly pack whatever you like. Plan your outfits as per days and then pack them so you don't overpack.
- Too much heavy makeup or many hair products (carry basics and versatile items)
- Uncomfortable shoes (especially those that have not been broken in!)
- Bulky full-sized toiletries (buy travel sized ones, or transfer them into smaller bottles instead or lens cases)
- Your laptop (we are sure you have days off, and try and check mails from your phone only if you have to!)

What Not To Miss
- Your passport and booking references (duh! if you're going abroad)
- Photocopies of Passports, IDs, and credit cards
- Medications - basic ones, bandaids and some pain relief balm.
- A few cute 'bride' accessories like a sunhat or maybe a bride shirt (just the time when it's not cheesy!)!
- A cute travel pillow and sleep masks. Especially if its going to be a long flight!
- A travel adapter (always handy when you're travelling abroad)
- Luggage tags to identify your baggage faster.
- A sturdy backpack (always comes in handy while sightseeing!)
- A chic fanny pack (yes, it's trendy again, and very chic when styled right!)
- Headphones (in flight ones are usually bad)
- Downloaded movies and shows on your phone or iPad (For long waits! Yep, Netflix works downloaded as well!)
- Downloaded Google Maps for the cities you're visiting!
- A tiny portable speaker (music can add a lot of romance to settings!)
- A travel journal and instant camera if you like documenting everything physically.
- Some sexy lingerie (super important!)
- 2-3 options for swimwear if you're going for a beach honeymoon.
- A few extra plastic bags and ziplock (for laundry or wet swimwear etc)
- A small travel size umbrella (handy in heat or rain!)
- A cute hat or cap (or you can pick one there)
