Your honeymoon is one of the most special trips of your life. After you’ve said "I do," it’s an exciting way to kick off life as newlyweds, and likely one of the biggest vacations you’ll ever plan. Many couples choose to travel to a bucket-list destination (or several) for their honeymoon, jetting to far-flung locations like the Taj Mahal in India, on a safari in Africa, or to Mount Fuji in Japan. If you’re a seaside-loving couple, the Amalfi coast, Hawaii, and the Maldives are just a few extraordinary locations to celebrate your nuptials. Wherever you’re going for your honeymoon, you’ll want to fill your suitcase with a few perfect dresses for the trip—looks that can take you from sightseeing to lunch al fresco to elegant dinners with ease. A fun way to strategize your outfits (and avoid overpacking) is to select dresses that are on theme with your destination of choice. If you’re headed to the tropics, go for exotic motifs and saturated colors. Breathable fabrics in warm earth tones are on point for a desert getaway. Opting for Mexico or South America? Embrace flouncy silhouettes, festive patterns, and vibrant hues.
Ahead, we’ve collected some dresses for nine spectacular honeymoon destinations. Whether you scoop up one dress or several, you’ll appear picture perfect no matter where you’re headed—don't act like you're not planning to share several pics on social media. Get inspired.
