Get a Custom-Made Bikini

Take this opportunity to get something uniquely you and custom-made for your once in a lifetime trip.

There are so many options when it comes to going custom and if you’re heading to a beach locale, a custom-made bikini is a must! Unika is a Toronto-based custom swimwear company, with options for women of all shapes and sizes. Just like creating a custom dress, they will custom create a bikini to your liking, including the cheekiness of the bottoms, the thickness of the straps and the type of padding you like. They tailor the bikini to fit your body shape and preferences, with lots of fabric choices.

I had the chance to get my custom bikini made with Unika recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

Pack Smart

Arrive to your destination in style with a neatly packed suitcase. This Quarter Master from EbbyRane comes with 10 carryall bags and a matching clutch. All of them neatly pack into the suitcase, allowing you to carrying all your essentials as a carry-on without having to check in your bags. It also looks beautiful!

Alternatively, I highly recommend trying packing cubes. They will revolutionize the way you travel and pack! You can find packing cubes on Amazon or anywhere, just make sure you have enough for your size luggage.

Bring a beautiful and light-weight tote bag for your travels. I always love a tote that is both dressy and cute for the beach. I am especially loving the boho feel of this tote bag!

Double Duty Accessories

A beautiful robe and shoes are so important on a wedding day, so I’ve included in this list as well. You can get double duty on your bridal robe and shoes on your honeymoon!

Bridal robes are still all the rage for getting ready photos. This lace robe would look just as beautiful while sitting on your hotel patio sipping coffee.

If robes aren’t your thing, what about a super chic pajama set? I could picture a really beautiful photoshoot in a lovely hotel, with a cute PJ set on.

When packing shoes, I always want to pack shoes that are both comfortable and can look dressy. I love these sandals from Vivaia as they are lightweight (great for packing), and look dressy enough for a night out, but are comfortable enough for every day walking.

Look the part of being a freshly minted bride in a beautiful white dress. I love the dresses at BHLDN. They teamed up with Free People for a really fresh take on white dresses, perfect for a honeymoon.
