Honeymoon Packing Tips - Cape Town Honeymoon Session

Apr 01, 2016 | Honeymoon

Us Sparrows are having major wanderlust right now - specifically somewhere warm and insanely gorgeous like these Cape Town beaches. Photographer CJK Visuals ventured out with Jay and Chelsea and captured this perfect honeymoon inspiration, which got us thinking: do you know what you're packing for your special trip with your love? Below are our top 5 picks for honeymoon items, but you can visit our shop for our curated list of everything we'd bring and the bottom of this post has the list of everything listed here!

SWIMWEAR

For a warm location, we're coveting Chelsea's chic white one-piece swim suit (sold out - similar here and here). Our best advice in this realm? Yeah, go ahead and buy that beautiful suit you have been eyeing for a while. Your honeymoon is that perfect opportunity to wear it!

We also love this flowy maxi dress, this darling gingham tank and this silky petal shorts for the beach...

JEWELRY

Chelsea's Lindsay Marie Design headpiece is absolutely gorgeous and that simple addition completes her look. Keep in mind that you won't want to bring every bauble you own as you'll most likely be going through airport security and the hassle and stress of having to worry about every jewel won't be worth it. But a girl has to look good on her honeymoon, right?

Some necessary accessories would be your sunnies, simple pieces like this gold "Enjoy the Journey" cuff, and maybe a personalized piece like this Kate Spade necklace because you have new initials, right?

BEAUTY

If you'll be a sun-bathing goddess, first thing is first: sunscreen! We also heart a little sunless spray so you can achieve the bronzed look without the damaging rays.You'll benefit from some rose hibiscus face spray to rejuvenate your skin after traveling, plus it smells amazing (great for cuddling on the beach!). Be sure to keep a bottle of Too Faced 'Hangover Replenishing Face Primer' on hand... that is a Wedding Sparrow favorite over here!

TECH

Three words: noise cancelling headphones. Whether you're on the plane or on that bumpy shuttle from the airport to your resort or airbnb... you'll look great and will be able to relax! We also highly recommend grabbing some international charger adapters and a portable phone battery so you can snap pics without worrying about your phone dying.

TRAVEL STYLE

For our beach brides, pick up a large beach bag or for our Euro-trip brides, a trusty leather bag would make your life a whole lot easier. We also love browsing through the Henri Bendel travel collections as they can be monogrammed... a passport cover or iPad case with your new monogram? So exciting!

From CJK Visuals: "After flying for over 24 hours from Washington DC to Cape Town, it was kind of crazy to think that just a few hours after landing, we'd be meeting with two models, hair, and makeup for a mini last-minute styled shoot on the gorgeous beaches of South Africa. Jay and Chelsea met up with us for hair and makeup at our incredible Air BnB a few hours before sunset, before we all smushed into my little 5 seater car and headed down the coast to Cosy Bay. We spent the rest of the evening by the beach, shooting and watching the fog roll over the mountains behind us.

I could not have imagined a more perfect welcome into South Africa. I am dreaming of getting back to this amazing town and country as soon as possible, it is truly one of the most incredible places on earth, filled with the sweetest and most beautiful people I've ever seen!"
