When I was a bride, I was overly consumed by the wedding, and I hardly had time to plan my honeymoon.  Let alone think about what to wear while I was there!  In order to help our South Asian brides carry their chic bridal style into their honeymoons, we pulled together the list of essentials just for you.  Don’t leave home without them!



Row 1 : Thong - Cute & comfy, and essential to all honeymoon clothing, make sure you take a few extra too! And a hint for all bridesmaids, a few of these in bright colors make the perfect bachelorette party gift! A great wedge - Keep your feminine bridal style throughout your trip. These shoes are perfect for daytime or night, site seeing or lunching a good wedge like this one by Seychelles will be the perfect complement to any outfit. Nightie - This super sweet night dress is sexy enough for evening, but modest enough to enjoy coffee on your balcony.


Row 2 : Swimsuit - Show off your hot bridal body with this reversible bikini from ABS. Two looks in one suit, so you can thrown an extra pair of shoes into your suitcase! Sunglasses - Your honeymoon is the perfect excuse to let that inner Jackie O come out. Get a pair of sunglasses that are a little bit bigger, and a bit more glamorous than you normally wear. After all, you are still the bride! Tory Burch Aviator Sunglasses
Strappy Sandal - Whether you are going to a bar, dinner or disco, these sexy heels will set the mood for a fun night. The Maharani in me loves these by Gucci, but shopstyle.com has about a thousand to choose from.

Row 3 : Earrings - Your honeymoon is not the place to take your bridal jewelry. I know it is amazing, but trust us, leave it at home. Instead, opt for a few pairs of dangling earrings that will highlight any ‘do. Thong Sandal - The other thong that is essential to your trip is this easy, breezy shoe that ads an element of beachy style to any outfit. And a bonus they can be worn with lenghas after your honeymoon! Robe - Super soft and comfy, it is the perfect thing to put on after a long day of sun-ing. Tip: a cute robe is the perfect thing for an Indian bride to get ready in on her wedding day!

Bags packed, passport in hand, and all you have to do is grab your new husband and you are off!
