Honeymoon Packing List…Ha, Yeah Right

You know those posts that detail every little new thing you should buy for a vacation or a honeymoon?

Or my favorite ones that refer to their list as honeymoon essentials.

This Tried & Tested: Honeymoon Fashion Essentials article tells me that I need the following:

  • eye-catching carryalls (are those purses?)
  • a sultry, yet sweet robe
  • something that screams “newlywed” (my worst nightmare)

Honeymoon Essentials No Bride Should Go Without preaches that I must have:

  • a monogrammed tote
  • another robe
  • and a sweet perfume

10 Things to Put on Your Honeymoon Packing List also suggests perfume and numerous special outfits…

You know what new items I bought to bring on my honeymoon? Two things: one pair of hiking socks and hiking pants.

That’s it.

To be fair, we were honeymooning in Canada and were hiking and lounging most of the time.

But either way, my point is that you don’t need a ton of new stuff for one trip. Use what you have. I had hiking socks, but not enough to go for 7 days. I certainly don’t need “eye-catching carryalls” to celebrate my marriage.

So here I am casually on top of a glacier wearing my honeymoon pants and socks (more on the glacier part in another post), and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

It was a little cold for teeny tiny bikinis in Canada anyway.

We definitely did see another couple on the trail in their “newlywed” attire, wearing matching Mr. and Mrs. shirts.

That’s not our style. I am also wearing my glasses because I legitimately left my contacts back in Chicago.

So if I did have to make a honeymoon packing list, I would suggest that you make sure you bring all of your visual aids.

So that you can truly see and enjoy all the scenic views.
