Whether you’re planning a long-extended honeymoon getaway or just a short excursion, just like your wedding, you need to be prepared for any possibility. You want to create a vacation that will be special enough to remember for the rest of your life. For that you have to make sure that you have a few things at your disposal. Here is a checklist of things you should have when you get to your honeymoon destination.
1. Travel Accessories
Travel accessories are those little things you might not readily think about at first, but they can help you go through airport terminals and customs a lot easier. See if you can find a pair of matching passport holders or opt for a travel pillow to make sleeping through those long flights more bearable.
2. Travel Documents
This is especially important if you’re planning to honeymoon outside of the country. Passports and visas are a given, but you might also consider bringing along your immunization records, a detailed travel itinerary, cruise documents, etc. You might want to also take a picture of these things with your phone just in case they get lost or stolen, you’ll have a backup if you need them.
You’re the kind that gets distracted or finds themselves jumping from one activity to another, having travel organizers can make it a lot easier to keep track of stuff and to keep your things from getting damaged or lost. Get organizers for the chargers for your devices, for your makeup, and for anything that might just get tossed around inside your lager bags.
4. Insurance Papers
Having travel insurance can put your mind at ease while you’re away. Look for a travel insurance plan that offers a special benefits package for honeymooners. They can come in handy when faced with trip delays, cancellations, or even medical emergencies.
5. Hair Dryer
Most hotels supply you with a hair dryer but expect that it won’t be the same as you use at home. No one wants to have frizzy hair on their honeymoon so make sure that you bring one that you know will be powerful enough to tame your mane.
6. Clothing For The Location
If your wedding was a traditional formal affair, don’t waste space in your luggage by bringing along your slim fit wedding tuxedo and party dresses unless you’re planning on staying at the Ritz. Make sure you have more of the casual basics so you will be comfortable wherever you go.
7. A List of Emergency Contacts
Have a list of people that can be contacted in an emergency. You can write them down on a piece of paper and keep it in your wallet or hotel room so that someone knows who to reach if you’re incapacitated in some way.
8. Travel Blanket
Finding yourself in a cold airplane and waiting in a cold airport or train station could put a damper on your honeymoon even before you reach your destination. Consider bringing a nice lightweight blanket and eye mask. It will keep you relaxed so that you can focus on more romantic things in route to your destination.
9. Prescription Medications
You might not want to think about it, but prescription medications are a must. Romance aside, not having your meds when you need them can ruin a great vacation. At the very least, you should have your prescriptions written down somewhere so you can get them at a local pharmacy if you need them.
You can’t preserve precious memories if you don’t have a camera. You can always rely on the phone for taking pictures on the fly but having an instant camera that you can pull out gives you immediate pictures you can hold in your hand as soon as you capture that special moment can be especially rewarding.
Your honeymoon will be a very special vacation for both of you. Everything you bring should be for your enjoyment. Leave work behind and focus on each other. With this checklist, you’ll leave nothing to chance so you can really get the most out of your first vacation together as a married couple.
