Planning and participating in all the functions that lead up to your big day can be quite hectic—especially if it’s a big fat Indian wedding. But once the relatives have left and party favours have been returned, it’s time for you to start thinking about your honeymoon. One might not want to give it too much thought after a stressful wedding week and we completely understand that. That’s why we’ve prepared an informal guide to honeymoon dressing that will ensure that you do more of the relaxing and less of the worrying.
Lightweight, summery dresses in fabrics like cotton and chiffon are ideal for a day at the beach. You can either pair it with gladiators and a French ponytail for a cute everyday look or use it as a cover-up for your bikini.
While you might spend the entire day relaxing along the ocean in your comfortable maxi dress, some occasions will require you to dress up. We recommend you to stay away from the overly embellished territory and embrace vibrant resort wear instead. Accessorise with coin necklaces and crystals for an off-the-runway look.
There’s a strong chance that your significant other might want to participate in certain adventurous activities like sand dune racing for example. It’s best if you dress the part in smart khakis, combat boots and tan accessories for a chic spin on the utilitarian look–equal parts style and comfort.
No matter how luxurious your holiday is, there will come a point when you’ll have to go out to run quick errands. Whether it’s for gallivanting around the streets or doing some last-minute shopping. A fun blouse paired with wide-legged chinos and black sunglasses spells casual chic. Pair it with a straw bag for that added resort element and extra room to carry more stuff.
After revelling in all the fun activities and enjoying your time partying, you might want to stay in a couple of nights and try to bond with your husband. While lace is a romantic option, nothing spells sensual like a satin slip dress. And it also goes perfectly well with a candlelit dinner and red wine.
