Mini Moon Packing Guide

The Mini Moon Packing Guide

After months of planning and the whirlwind of your wedding day, you and your new spouse might need to get away from it all (we totally understand). Since travelling internationally may not be in the cards for a while, many couples are opting for a “mini moon,” a.k.a. a mini honeymoon! We’ve crafted a guide to essential looks for any destination, so grab your weekend bag and get started!

For The Beachfront Views:

Sandy shores, gentle waves lapping at your feet, the distant sound of gulls—sounds like bliss to us. Layer a flowy sundress over a bikini with retro details for a warm weather getaway. Effortless espadrilles and rosy sunglasses pair perfectly with a mask and a playful beach bag. Don’t forget sunscreen and that book you’ve been meaning to read!

For The Quaint Cabin:

A mountain hideaway, a crackling fire, and plenty of peace and quiet? We’re in. Pop on an extra-cozy sweater and fuzzy slippers before curling up to play board games. A soft chemise lets you add a romantic touch while a pearly headband begs for an IG-worthy cabin pic. (P.S. cue this playlist for the ultimate low-key night…)

For The Woodsy Getaway:

Earthy surroundings, starry skies, and a dreamy hot tub? What a combination! A classic bikini lets you relax in style, paired with a flowy robe for an ultra-boho vibe. Tuck your hair back with a pretty comb and pop on a fur wrap for the perfect “in nature and thriving!” dinner look.

For The Rad Road Trip:

Whether you’re hitting the road for small town charm or big city adventure, pair slouchy jeans with classic sneakers for an easy walking outfit. A white cami-and-blazer combo keeps the bridal vibes going all weekend, especially with punchy details like a script necklace and pearly sunglasses. The ultimate essential? A pretty mask to keep you safe while you explore!

For A Mini Moon Date Night:

While date nights look a little different these days, you can still prepare for a socially-distanced cocktail hour on your mini moon! A slinky dress paired with block heels keeps you looking cool, as crystal details (perhaps re-worn from your wedding day look?) add extra zing.

Mini Moon Must-Haves Checklist

Start with the getaway looks above, then fill the rest of your suitcase with this packing list, which works for sightseeing road trips, cozy cabin weekends, and every destination in between.

Essentials

Let’s start with the things you absolutely CANNOT forget:

• Driver’s license
• Credit cards/cash (wouldn’t hurt to let your bank know you’re traveling, too…)
• Chargers
• Any prescription medications

Clothes

As self-proclaimed over-packers, we are all too aware of the need for options when it comes to outfits, but to save space and sanity, we’ve broken it down to the basics:

• 1-2 pairs of jeans or pants
• 2-4 shirts
• A sweater or cardigan
• A date night-worthy dress!
• Pajamas or sleepwear
• Jacket or coat
• Underwear & socks
• Lingerie
• Shoes (heels, sandals, boots, take your pick!)

Toiletries

Does your hair need to be perfect every day on vacation? Of course not! But if you do want to give yourself a bouncy blowout for dinner, you’ll want your faves from home for getting glam:

• Toothbrush/toothpaste/mouthwash
• Contact lenses/solution
• Deodorant
• Perfume
• Dry shampoo
• Hair products (styling cream, hair ties, oil)
• Brush/comb
• Makeup
• First aid kit
• Hand sanitizer
• Pain reliver (no one wants a honeymoon hangover)

Last thing: this is a getaway for you and your partner to kick off your marriage. Enjoy yourselves!
