The wedding is over and it's time for you and your hubby to take off on the honeymoon of your dreams. While the destination is definitely worth the trip, sometimes long-haul travel can make you go stir crazy.

Don't fret we've rounded up all the essentials you need to make your seven hour flight go by in a snap!

Coach Travel Bag

The first item you need to invest in is a good carry-on bag. Look for one that is stylish, but will also hold all the items you may need throughout the flight. And remember it still has to be small enough to fit underneath the seat under you for easy access. ("Explorer" leather travel bag, $695, Coach)

Next, be sure to bring a scarf/blanket hybrid. They are the chicest way to stay warm when the plane inevitably cranks the AC. ("Justy" cashmere airport wrap, $319, Club Monaco)

A travel sized face mist keeps your skin moisturized and looking dewy throughout the flight. Plus each mist will make you feel more refreshed and vitalized. (Thermal spring water spray, $9.99, La Roche-Posay available at

ADAY Socks

A pair of cashmere socks are a must as they are the easiest way to make you feel cozy and at home on the plane. ("Feet Up" socks, $18, ADAY)

Frends Headphones

Invest in a good pair of headphones prior to takeoff. You'll want to block out the plane noise as you enjoy the in-flight movies, and the flimsy earbuds the airlines supply never stay in place. ("Taylor" headphones, $199.95, Frends)

Amazon Kindle Paperweight

Be sure to download a few books — you know, the ones you've dying to read but haven't had time to because of wedding planning. You now have all the time in the world to catch up. ("Kindle Paperweight" e-reader, $119.99, Amazon)

Include a cute eyemask in your carry-on to block out the bright in-flight lights so you can catch some much needed Zs. ("Lids" eye mask, $110, Amanda Fatherazi x Morgan Lane available at ShopBop)
