Getting married? Perhaps you’ve heard about a wedding trousseau, which is basically all of the things you need to pack for your honeymoon and life after. Here are some of our favorite suggested items to bring (and a helpful checklist of things to register for if you don’t already have them):
Luggage: Every girl (and guy for that matter) should own a nice piece of luggage at least once in their lifetime. Whether you’re going home right after the reception or setting out on an extended honeymoon, pick durable luggage that will get you where you need to go and house all of your essentials.
Personal hygiene items: Pack a toiletry bag containing all the essentials, such as a toothbrush, travel-sized toothpaste, facial cleanser, lotion, perfume…whatever you need to look and feel your best on the go.
Emergency kit: Don’t forget a small toiletry bag containing medications and first aid necessities, such as pain reliever, bandages, and sunscreen. If you’ve got the space, add a simple sewing kit, which includes safety pins, stain removers, and other emergency items that can neatly fit into your luggage.
Shoes: a good rule of thumb is to pack a pair that can go from dressy to casual based on your outfit. Take some time to actually think about easily coordinating your outfits with your shoes and pack accordingly. You don’t want to take up all the space in your luggage with shoes, but when your feet hurt it’s hard to have fun – much less feel sexy.
Outfits for day: Think ahead to your various activities and look for versatile pieces you can mix and match. A simple black cotton tank dress can be dressed up with a scarf or jewelry for night but during the day can be perfect for wearing over a swimsuit to the beach.
Outfits for night: This is where we can really help you out! You want to keep it hot and interesting. For the wedding night, you’ll want bridal white and something uber sexy, maybe even something that can be worn under your wedding dress. But throughout the honeymoon, you’ll want to spice things up. You might enjoy getting more and more playful each night and keeping it a surprise for your special someone. And it’s not just for the girls – we have items for the guys, too! Surprise your partner with some sexy new boxers, briefs, or European-style undies.
Sex: you’re going to have it. Are you ready? Don’t forget to pack birth control, if needed, any lubricants or oils, and, if you’re feeling adventurous, maybe some toys to take things to the next level.
We have a lot of bachelorette parties swing by our stores preparing for their big night out with the bride. Sure, we have everything you need for that party, but many of the groups are also searching for lingerie for the bride as part of a “panty party” or lingerie shower. It’s great when the bride can be there for the fitting, but if she can’t be with you then bring in a full length photo in so we can get an idea of her size and shape, If you know what size she typically wears, even better.
Let us help you get honeymoon ready! Swing by one of our four locations statewide.
