I always must have La Mer spray for my face, aveda hand cream and lip saver, and eye cream for the plane.

Have you seen the blog .. jetsetgirls? It’s sooo cool. They have an entire list of must haves for travel. 

Have fun!!!!!!!

P.S. my one tip is that when you go shopping, have the store ship your new stuff to you instead of traveling with it … also I always seem to like one pair of shoes for during the day, especially beach vacations. I bring lots of shoes and only end up wearing the same one pair over and over again.

Me?  Healthcare chick here.  I believe in the airborne products..can’t go wrong with all the "stuff" flying around these days.  Drink lots of bottled water.  I bring my toileitries (ones which go in luggage including razors for shaving, my bliss shave cream, in zip loc baggies.  I also put any lip gloss or stuff that I carry in my purse in zip loc baggies so the safety personnel can see waht it is and my good stuff doesn’t get tossed.  Bring a few extra too..I also put my bath puff in one also!  Keeps stuff from also rolling around and spilling in your good luggage. 

I also bring a small travel size of perfume with me too.  Sephora and Ulta have lots.  My new favorite is Michael Kors.  I have lots of travel size stuff from bath n body works too.  Oh and hand sanitizer.  Need it.

especially if youre going to the beach…sunblock and tanning oil!! you dont want to get burned on your honeymoon but you probably want some sort of tan.

beachy makeup: bronzer, tinted moisturizer, waterproof mascara and eyeliner, tinted lipbalm with spf

i always like to keep my toes looking cute so some nail polish remover and clear/color nailpolish

ok, im going to be frank and i hope i dont get in trouble but come on, it is wedding related and im sure everyone is thinking about it…sex! im sure youre going to be making love because you just got married so bring sexy lingerie and here i am being brutally honest again, ky. i dont think i need to go into details about that but it would be a good thing to bring as well!

and thats a good idea about everything travel-size, really helps make space!

Are you used to flying a lot?  If not, brush up on what can and cannot go in carry-ons and luggage at http://www.tsa.gov/travelers.  For instance, you can carry razors in your carry-on, but no bottled water unless you buy it after security.  Also, who knew that you can’t wear gel insoles in your shoes!?  If it’s a long plane ride, an eye mask or especially a neck pillow can help make you more comfortable, especially if you’re still tired from the wedding.  For St. Lucia in particular, aren’t there a lot of mosquitoes and bugs?  Bug spray (under 3 oz, or in your luggage) may come in handy!

We just got back Sunday from our honeymoon, and I have to say that I wildly overpacked!  Look at how many clothes you normally wear for a week or two and then cut that in half.  If you’re going to the beach and you plan on spending all your time there, bring multiple swimsuits and beach cover-ups and scale back the amount of "real clothes" you’re bringing.  Definitely bring a backpack or daypack, and don’t pack more than one really nice dress (unless you’re planning on getting dressed up for dinner every night!  :).  Also, something I didn’t know until planning for our honeymoon, leave a photo copy of your passports, credit cards, and itineraries/reservations with your parents just in case something happens. 

Have fun and CONGRATS!

First, CONGRATS!!! That is so exciting!!! My sister went there for her honeymoon and loved it!

I am going to be straight up as well! KY is a VERY good idea! Also, whenever I travel to foreign countries with different food, I bring both Imodium and laxatives. You just never know and both would not be something you want to deal with on your honeymoon!

and I second Mrs. Spring on the copies. SUPER important! Also, lock all that stuff in the in-room safe whenever you leave. It is worth the extra money some places charge you.
