Well I can speak from a non-honeymoon experience.  I’ve alwyas put my bathing suits with my regular luggage.  And change 12 seconds after we get our room key.  If you know exactly where it is in your luggage you’ll get to it just as fast.

I pack swimsuits in my luggage but remember exactly where they are so I can get right to them! I also make an effort to dress comfortably when traveling, but that’s just me. Maybe your parents could just take close up pics? Or get a cute “Just Married” yoga pants and hoodie combo that is both cute and comfy?

Considering that I once had luggage delayed a day going to Aruba, I was VERY happy that bikini was in the carry on! 🙂

Anything you want right away you should keep in your  carry-on just in case – and if I were you I’d wear a cute dress to the airport (won’t take up too much space in your carry-on!) and you can change into yoga pants and a comfy shirt once you’re on the plane. Or just wear a comfy sundress that’s cute and OK for a long flight 🙂

I always pack a few things in my carry on incase there is a delay with the luggage, a bathing suit takes an incredibly small about of space.  For the plane ride- depending on the time of year, I’d wear a cute track suit or if its warmer where you are departing a cute, lose sundress and sandals.


Have fun!!

This totally depends on the person. I like to travel comfy, but still stylish. And I like to settle in before hitting the sand, so I pack my bathing suit and cover up in my regular suit cases.

Comfy always trumps cute.. I couldnt care less what I look like on a plane, I want to sit in comfort for the flight.  I always pack everything in the suit case and take it right along with me after checking in, I dont bother having anyone bring it up for me.

Put it in carry on just in case something happens to your luggage!

I always pack essentials in my carry-on; UK tour operators limit you to just 5kg of carry-on in a bag no bigger than 55cm x 40cm x 25cm, but in this I manage to get:

DLSR Camera and charger;

Phone and charger;

Compact camera;


Basic make-up: foundation, bronzer, mascara (waterproof), eyeshadow, nail polish;

Deodorant and perfume;

Toothpaste and brush;

My pill, as well as painkillers (OH gets bad headaches flying);

Flat smart sandals;





Clean knickers;

Socks (my feet get cold on flights, esp long-haul)


I always bring some clothes in my carry-on in case my case goes astray; I like to have a few essentials/outfits to tide me over. It’s surprising how much you can fit in really. I never get people who travel with just a tiny handbag, I’d feel naked lol.

Re what to wear on the flight: when I travel long-haul, comfort is important, but I also like to look nice, and I also like to wear clothes that I could wear while away if my case doesn’t turn up.

So, I wear white linen pants, a black vest-top, a black linen jacket or cardigan, a black pashmina, comfortable sandals, and nice jewellery.

This means that combined with the items in my carry-on, I have a capsule wardrobe, eg the sundress can be worn at the pool over my bikini, or smartened up with jewellery and dressy sandals for the evening, the shorts can be used for shopping/trips, the trousers can be worn shopping, or in the evening (teamed with nice jewellery and sandals), etc.

My pet hate is people who travel in tracksuits lol; I also don’t ‘get’ people who wear really skimpy summer clothes on the flight, esp l;ong-haul; I always think they must be freezing with all the AC on the plane!

I packed one of my three swimsuits in my carry on *just in case.* And for the very early, very long flight, I did a compromise between cute and comfy – I wore a jersey-knit dress and tossed a zippered sweatshirt over it because I’m always cold on planes.

I agree with keeping the swimsuit and a change of clothes in your carry on just in case your luggage gets a little delayed! You never know! And I dressed comfy for our flight. I didn’t want to be unconfortable for 3 hours just to look super cute for a photo op! Plus, we were so tired, that there was no looking cute the morning we left.
