Planning your honeymoon? You lucky thing you! Wherever you're going on this beautiful planet, we know you'll want to make your honeymoon memorable for all the right reasons. From Insta-worthy restaurants to the cutest luggage, we've got you covered. Read on for our Top 5 Tips for a Stylish Honeymoon with images from the Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat in the French Rivieria by Tony Gigov:
1. BOOK A LUXURY MEAL BEFORE YOU GO
For the ultimate in Instagram-worthy eating with your loved one, book a dinner via an app like Open Table especially if you're traveling to another country. If you're heading to a city, consider an epic cafe style location like Saint Aymes in London, La Maison Rose in Paris or While We Were Young in New York. It'll give you something to look forward to and a taste of the city/town/country you're in. And hello, food...
2. PACK A CAPSULE WARDROBE
Traveling light is essential if you're trekking through different cities and countries like so many brides and grooms do now with their multi-stop honeymoons. Try and pack neutral layers to mix and match your style throughout your vacation.
Sightseeing whilst you're away? Pack these soft loose pants which could be dressed up for dinner or worn with a simple white t-shirt.
Planning on dinner in one of those gorg cafes or restaurants I mentioned above? How about this long flowing maxi dress from ASOS or if you're looking for an investment piece, this satin tea dress from Net-a-Porter...
3. BOOK A HONEYMOON PORTRAIT SESSION
We recently wrote about Honeymoon Portrait Sessions and how they are the new session in town. You and your loved one photographed on film looking the best you ever have in a luxury location? No wonder more and more couples are doing this. Want to find a photographer in your honeymoon location?

5. DRINK YOUR SIGNATURE COCKTAIL
If you had signature cocktail at your wedding, it would be such a sweet touch and a memory that you could bring into your honeymoon and every anniversary after that! Did someone say Old Fashioned at the pool bar in the evening overlooking the sunset?
