  • T-shirts and long-sleeved shirts
  • Shorts or pants
  • Sweater for layering

Between the two of you, you’ll need to bring a lot of personal care items. (If you’re flying, make sure all liquids meet your airline’s size regulations- or pack the liquids in a checked bag- one that is not carried on.

  • iPod and headphones

  • For those LDS couples who are honeymooning abroad, there are a few extra considerations when packing.

  • Local currency and conversion chart
  • Phone number of your country’s consulate
  • Voltage adapters                         
  • Foreign language dictionary
  • Motion sickness tablets or bands

Of course every destination and itinerary will probably not require every item on this list. Tailor this checklist to your unique circumstances, and remember to coordinate your packing list with your spouse. No need to bring along two tubes of toothpaste – you’re married now!
