Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you all had a great Memorial Day Weekend!
Like I mentioned in my last post, Kevin and I had a busy weekend! We went to WI to celebrate my cousin’s wedding then went to Milwaukee on Saturday for a friend’s birthday. Sunday and Monday were spent traveling, hanging around and relaxing after a busy few weeks!
Side note – my blog posting schedule has been a little all over the place lately with holidays and traveling. But, I’ll be back to posting 3 times a week from now on! Sorry for any confusion! 🤗
This is the fifth post in the wedding series, and one personally requested by one of my best friends who’s getting married! Today, I’ve rounded up 12 “essentials” for a warm-weather honeymoon (think all inclusive or beach vacay!). Based on my experience, I’m sharing my top 5 must-haves below!

A Beach Hat: Besides sunscreen and cute sunnies, a beach hat is an essential for keeping you protected from the harmful rays of the sun! And, if you’re like me, you’ll need a hat to keep your hair part from getting burnt – lol! I also love to use hats to cover my face while sunbathing or to hide things under if I decide to take a dip! This one is so cute, but Nordstrom has a ton of other cute ones (including customizable ones) here.
A Cover Up: On a beach vacay, I live in cover-ups. So the fact that this one has lace details AND is on sale for $42 makes it perfect! Plus, it comes in white which is made for brides! The front tie also makes it easy to slip on and off or just wear draped around your shoulders. I managed to try this one on in stores and feel that the S fits TTS (typically wear XS-S).
A Cute Suit: I feel like this kind of goes without saying, right? You don’t go on your honeymoon to a sunny destination without a seriously cute swimsuit! This two piece (top, bottom) and this one piece are both perfect for a honeymoon! I love the bright color of the one piece and feel like it was made for the Caribbean. Plus, it’s on sale under $30, so can’t beat that!
A Beach Bag: Since you’re likely going to be going back and forth between the beach, the pool and your room a lot, having a bag to carry your sunscreen, towels, sunnies etc is very important! This toucan tote is adorable and the perfect size to fit all of the essentials! Plus, they literally describe it as being “packable” so it’s sure to fit into your luggage. It’s currently on sale for just over $53 and would be something you could use on any vacation for years to come!
Lingerie: What would a honeymoon be without lingerie to surprise your new husband?! I love Free People because their bodysuits often double as lingerie meaning you’ll be able to wear it in the bedroom and out and about (with pants on! lol!). This white lace one is gorgeous and would look great with white skinnies if worn out!
Rounding all this up really makes me want to take a beach vacation! But, I’ll settle for one of our 10,000 lakes given that it’s now 90 degrees outside 😋
Have a great day everyone!
