Destination honeymoon is a fantastic way for a couple to start a lifelong journey together. And, you want every bit of it to be perfect, so that you could cherish the memories for years to come. Hence, for a newlywed bride it is essential that her trousseau is well planned for this romantic getaway.
There has to be a perfect mix of western and ethnic outfits when you shop for your wedding as well as your honeymoon. It is always recommended you invest in 10 great classic outfits that are designed beautifully and fit your body type rather than 20 average styles. It is all about the quality and not the quantity girls! You could easily mix and match the outfits, style them up or down with accessories and there is definitely more than one way to wear each garment. So, here are a few suggestions for the brides-to-be for their much awaited destination honeymoons!
Almost all beach destinations usually have pretty hot days and cooler nights. Therefore, you are looking to pack outfits, which are either 100 percent cotton base or have at least 50 percent of cotton blend in it. Of course, all swimwear should be polyester blended only.
For beach honeymoon, you should pack up as many colourful clothes and accessories as you can. Make sure you also have plenty of whites and a nice fedora hat with you to cover yourself in the harsh sun. If you are one of the blessed brides with the perfect curves, then a nice floral or a colour blocked bikini is a must! You can get your cues on bikinis and beachwear from Resort lookbooks/collections of various designers. And, if you are not comfortable showing off, then either wrap a sarong on the lower half of your body, or go for a nice kaftan for covering your upper body.

Pleated skirts and dresses are also a big hit on the international runways this season. A pair of strappy gladiator sandals is a must and is very much in vogue right now. Also, a nice bucket tote will not only complement your clothes, you can even carry all your essentials in it. Lastly, it is a good idea to pack a few sultry evening numbers for those romantic evenings or crazy beach parties!
If you are headed to the mountains for your honeymoon, then you should carry layers of clothing rather than only packing heavy woollen jumpers or just overcoats/jackets. Layering will help you to style up the look and will keep you warm as well. There is no restriction on carrying colourful clothes just because it will be cold. If you layer smart, then the colours will show through. This season, it is all about breaking the rules. So, girls do not hesitate to splash the quirky hues.
Even overalls and longer tunics are a big hit this season. You can layer these with shorter lengths to add an interesting element to your look. You can pair your denim or warm leggings with a plain top and colourful scarf. If you want to experiment with silhouettes, then go for a rayon blend jumpsuit, which flatters almost all body shapes and will keep you warm in the cold weather as well. Get rid of the chunky woollens by investing in a great feather overcoat/jacket, which you could wear with your pretty blouses and tops.
Make sure you carry with you a chic pair of shoes, which are comfortable to walk in as well as look stylish. It is difficult to accessorise with full-sleeved garments, or high neck tops, hence the best bet is to buy amazing footwear/eyewear to flaunt your style. Woollen scarves are also a must, and one should learn various ways of wearing/draping them. Winter accessories like leather gloves, boots and bags will help you to finish the look!
Desert honeymoon destinations could be most magical for a bride, provided she is fully prepared for it! It could be extremely challenging if you are not equipped with the right kind of clothing to beat the heat.
It is important that you are covered considerably in a way that is chic and fashionable. I suggest that the brides carry roomy outfit options, such as high fashion drapes that will make their skin breathe easily. You can cinch them at the waist with a nice belt. Enlarged florals tunics are a hot trend on the runway, which could double up as dresses. Also, wearing one colour from top to toe can work wonders for some brides, but you should know the right way to wear it. Try to accentuate your look with accessories.
Remember, no look is complete without accessories, therefore updated cat-eye sunglasses can help you bring your look together. You can also experiment with tons of colours by adding colourful neckpieces and earrings. An ethnic Indian choker can work wonders with your drapey silhouettes.
Lastly, the only rule in fashion is to break all the rules! So, girls go have fun shopping for that dream destination honeymoon!
