Every fashion lover knows that part of the fun of planning a trip is getting to plan the outfits you'll wear. For newlyweds, planning a honeymoon destination means planning a special honeymoon dress or two.

Just like not all brides share the same style, not all honeymoon dresses will look alike for newlyweds. Whether your closet leans towards floral midi dresses from Reformation, edgy Cult Gaia sets or breezy Free People minis, we've found a honeymoon dress for you. Your own personal taste and style as well as the destination you're headed to will largely inform your honeymoon wardrobe. A beach honeymoon will have very different day-to-day activities than a mountainous honeymoon and your wardrobe will reflect that.

Whether you're jetting off to the Amalfi Coast, enjoying a serene stay on Nantucket, or venturing out west to Jackson Hole, we're here to ensure you're the best dressed on your honeymoon. Grab a suitcase and your travel-sized sunscreen and let's start packing!

Honeymoon Dress Shopping Tips

Shopping for a honeymoon dress is similar to shopping for any other special occasion. You'll want something that you feel comfortable in that's just a bit more elevated than your everyday outfits. Keep reading for our top honeymoon dress shopping tips.

Keep comfort in mind.

A vacation is typically filled with early mornings and late nights, so you'll want to make sure you're wearing something comfortable that you can wear all day. Be sure to try on any dress before your trip so that you can ensure you won't be awkwardly adjusting your dress all day long.

Embrace the aesthetic.

The dress you wear on a beach in Bali may not be the same dress you'd choose for exploring Jackson Hole. Be sure to think about where you're headed to on your honeymoon so you can dress accordingly. Think bright colors and daring cutouts for a tropical vacay and soft linen and delicate prints for something more rustic. You can really lean into the aesthetic of the trip and have fun with your wardrobe.

Consider the fabric.

The climate of your honeymoon destination will inform the types of fabrics you choose to pack along. Hot climates call for breathable linen and cotton to wick away sweat while cool climates allow for heavier knits or even denim and corduroy. The fabric of the dresses you pack goes hand in hand with how comfortable you'll be. Pro tip: pack a portable steamer if you're bringing anything that you're worried will wrinkle.

Stay true to your style.

It can be intimidating thinking you have to strap on sexy stilettos and form-fitting mini dresses just for your honeymoon. Keep in mind that your spouse loves you for *you* and you don't have to change your personal style to fit into a mold of how you think you "should" dress for your honeymoon. No matter what you are wearing, confidence in yourself will always shine through.
