posted by Tanvi Bajaj July 6, 2016 0 comments

This is it, the glorious post wedding time when it’s just you and your beau, holidaying on some sandy beach or some secluded resort on a snow clad mountain, the honeymoon is here! While they say you can never be too prepared for your honeymoon, we’re here to make sure that you are completely prepared for it and pack smartly for it. I’ve seen way too many couples being completely bewildered by what to pack for their honeymoon and how to pack, what with them putting it off to the last day because of all the wedding rush. While most couples end up either packing too much or packing too little, there is a fine line between the two which we’ll help you stay on!

Ideally, you should be done with most of your honeymoon packing a week before you’re supposed to go for it. In case you’re leaving a day or two after your wedding, ensure you do your main packing before you get married and then just add on/delete from it.
