When the sun goes down, you'll be making a wardrobe change. You just got married, so you'll want to go out and show off your new hubby. Dinner, dancing and drinks are a sure thing wherever you're honeymooning, so dress for the occasion.

To get a taste of your destination's nightlife, you're going to need:

  • high heels or dressy flats and sandals
  • at least two dresses (one more formal cocktail dress, one slightly more casual sundress)
  • strapless bra and seamless underwear
  • evening bag
  • accessories (depending on where you are, you may want to limit the bling -- wear your wedding band, but leave the rock in the hotel or even at home if you're heading off-resort to a local watering hole)

Let's not forget you're on your honeymoon! Experiencing the nightlife is fine, but it's the late nights that newlyweds tend to look forward to the most.

We'll skip the finer details (every bride's taste is different), but you should definitely bring along some lingerie and any other souvenirs you got showered with at your bachelorette party. And if you want to keep your family a party of two for a while, plan accordingly with contraceptives.
