The word “honeymoon” in itself is lovely. In the 5th century, the Honeymoon had a completely different meaning. A honeymoon was then a period after marriage when the newlyweds would drink a honey-based alcoholic drink. Apart from that, in those days; calendar days were measured by moon cycles. But now, it has a different meaning altogether. A honeymoon is a time when the newlywed couples go on vacation and spend some quality time together. It is something that every each pair looks forward after marriage because they make memories that last for a lifetime and no other vacation can give the same amount of excitement and love that a honeymoon provides to them. The Honeymoon is the period that occurs just after the marriage, so people don’t get much time and opportunity to pack stuff for the honeymoon period. There are a few things that are essentials when it comes to packing for a honeymoon trip.
Here are ten things to pack for a honeymoon trip.
As it’s said, travel light, which means to carry minimum things in your bag. But never forget the importance of “essential” clothing depending upon the place you are traveling. Try and pack the clothes that are necessary in that place. If you are going to a beach, then carry clothes like tops, bottom wear, shorts, etc . if you are traveling to the hills then carry good quality winter wear and sports shoes. There should be a fixed number of such clothes that one must take, too many of them are not needed.
One should carry an excellent quality of undergarments, as Undergarments absorbs sweat easily. While one must not forget putting at least 2-3 sets of undergarments. For both the husband and wife, undergarments are an integral, essential part of the packing and they should give enough importance to it. It is not possible sometimes during such trips to wash clothes, and hence one must carry extra undergarments with them.
One cannot predict when a person can fall ill. A person can fall ill due change of weather, food or it could just happen to anyone. It is thus vital for couples to carry generic medicines like paracetamols, ibuprofen, etc. The climate of the new place may affect either of the pair while they are on Honeymoon and they can fall ill. Another reason is that a honeymoon destination is always a new place for couples and it may not be possible for them to locate a pharmacy nearby, so carrying medicines is still a great idea.
A honeymoon is extremely special because a couple makes special memories. While packing their stuff for the trip, they should make sure that they carry special dresses as well. Usually, a couple may have planned something special during the Honeymoon like a candlelight dinner or a visit to a special place that requires one to wear special formal dresses. They should carry such special dresses like a gown or a legal suit.
