Your honeymoon packing list


If you are going on honeymoon immediately or shortly after your wedding, you will need to prepare your bags in advance to save time and stress later on.

Write a honeymoon packing list beforehand to ensure that you remember everything you need, as you don’t want to spend your precious honeymoon time out searching for forgotten items!

Bags packed!

Have your suitcases packed the day before the wedding so that all that remains is to have them delivered to the airport or hotel.


Don’t forget flight tickets, hotel reservations, passports, visas, credit cards, immunization certificates, and travelers’ checks!
