Nomadix towel
One of our favorite towels out there: this light-weight (read: easy to pack) but super absorbent towel is versatile — it doubles as a yoga mat on the beach, or just a pretty beach/pool towel. (Universal Towel, $54.99, Nomadix)

A versatile floppy hat
Keep that sun off your face in style with the always-classic oversized straw hat. We love this neutral, color blocked version from Asos (and not a bad price point!). Our tip for packing your floppy hat: pack clothes around the edges of your suitcase (creating a "nest" for the crown of your hat), and then roll up socks, bathing suits, and other small pieces, and stuff them in your hat to keep it stiff, packing your hat upside down to keep its shape. (Asos Oversized Straw Floppy Hat, $26, Asos)

A sturdy and pretty piece of luggage
This beautiful green suitcase not only makes it easy to spot at baggage claim, but also feels appropriately tropical. Plus, we highly advocate registering for good quality luggage that will last — you'll thank us when you still have a sturdy suitcase on your 10 year anniversary! (The Correspondent Stowaway, $750, Steamline Luggage)

A fun straw tote
You are on your honeymoon, after all so don't be afraid to upgrade from your regular plain straw market tote to something a little bolder. (Sensi Studio, $265, available at Net-A-Porter)

Don't forget the sunscreen!
While some of us go sans-makeup when at the beach, others can't leave the house without it, which can be a pain when it comes to re-applying sunscreen. That's why we love this Supergoop! Setting mist — it's SPF 50 and you spray it OVER your makeup when you need to reapply. So no greasy face! (Supergoop, $28, available at Supergoop.com)
