Honeymoon Packing Checklist (With A Free Printable!)

If you and your fiance can make it through your wedding unscathed, you deserve a vacation. I feel like honeymoons had to stem from that. After months of planning and stressing, you just need a few days to wear a large brimmed hat on the beach and sip a drink that a waiter brought to you on a tray.

That's not too much to ask.

But when you're there, relaxing on a tropical island, you don't want to think, "Shoot, I forgot a razor. So much for these cute bikinis."

With so much planning, though, you're bound to forget something. But don't worry. I won't let you. I put together a honeymoon packing checklist. You can, literally, print out the version at the bottom and cross items off as you pack them (that's what I do before trips) or you can just read it below and print this entire blog post so you can have room to write your own notes in the columns. Whatever keeps your sanity.

    1. Oh that's a great addition. Many hotels have hair dryers, but I've never seen one with a flat iron so that's smart to pack!

  5. Hi Lisa! I'd love to link up to your post on my Wedding Resources page? Would it be okay if I used an image from your post (not the checklist of course) and linked up to you?

    With our recent summer vacay fail, forgetting to bring sunscreen, we definitely need this! We plan to get married in the Early Winter of 2016.

  6. Oh this is so helpful! I'm getting married in November and with all the focus on the wedding I almost forget about planning the honeymoon, too! A checklist like this will come in handy for packing since I'm sure the week of the wedding will be crazy!

  8. I love this list! I've been married for 8 years now and we only got to take our "honeymoon" last year and we went to Florida! I could have used this list then! You bet your butt when we got there we made multiple trips to Wallgreens! Now that we try to vacation yearly this list will come in handy for when we are packing! Thanks for sharing with us at #ThrowbackThursdays!
