If you have 2 suits, you should be good. Remember you are going to a tropical place, your suits will dry quickly if you hang them outside. I wore a lot of loose sundresses and flowy skirts. I brought lots of tank tops and a couple pairs of shorts. I also brought a couple nice outfits for dinner.

i would bring at least one or two nice dresses in case you guys want to dress up for dinner or something (be sure to check your resort, i know our resort had 1 or 2 restaurants where you werent allowed to wear shorts or flip flops to dinner).

i lived in bathing suits, cover ups, sundresses and flip flops. I pretty much wore a swinsuit and cover ups all day – the more casual restaurants didnt require you to have “real” clothes on for lunch so i saw no need to change.  I think 2 bathing suits would be enough, but its your honeymoon! splurge and by another 🙂 you can never have too many.

i’d bring a pair of running shoes just in case you guys do any adventure activities 🙂

@RoyalLime: i second what she said.  also for the beach, i had a couple of wrap arounds/saraongs so when i wanted to get up for a drink or anything, i wasn’t always walking around in my bikini.

We went to Maui and I brought a few loose flowy sundresses, 1 or 2 long, nicer dresses for going out at night, lots of tank tops, shorts, capri pants, tee shirts and 2 bathing suits. Lindsey’s right, they will dry very quickly. I also took a few pairs of flipflops, nicer wedges for going out, and 1 pair of sneakers. I even packed a lightweight hoodie.

When I was on our honeymoon (In jamaica at a Sandals resort) I wayyyy over packed… I wore a bathing suit 90% of the time. I had two bathing suits and would have like to have atleast one more. So I would suggest bringing more than two. Bring a bunch of easy cover ups, summer “dresses”… I wish I had more. and like the others have said bring a nice dress or two with heels to have a nice dinner.

I did a 10 day beach honeymoon at St John.  All I needed/used was 2 bathing suits, and a cover up for most days.  Then I brought shorts, skirt, 3 t shirts, and a sun dress.  A pair of flip flops and dressier sandels/wedges.

Fiance and I went to Barbados for 10 days last summer, I am so jealous of you! We went in July. I brought 2 bathing suits (1 to wear while 1 dries every day). I brought a few cover ups that I could walk around town in (sometimes after the beach, we would go for a drive around the island). We went ziplining and did some off roading and walked around on some rocky cliffs so I brought some sneakers and tevas as well as some grungy shorts for that. A couple of nice dresses because I knew we were going out to some restaraunts with dress codes. Most of the time, I wore my bathing suit under shorts and a tank top or a sundress and flip flops. Depending on what activities you plan on doing may add to what you need to bring. Have fun! We loved it!

@Future MrsB:  My favorite cover up is a (long) sarong i bought from some lady on the beach in the bahamas a few years back. you can wear it so many different ways!

Have you looked at target? they have some really great one piece bathings suits! check marshalls too – i found a few there last year for around 30 bucks that i love
