Much like newlyweds, no two honeymoons are alike. Some couples love seeking action and adventure, while others prefer a lot of rest and relaxation after the stress of planning the wedding. Whatever your honeymoon style, you'll want to make sure to pack the right outfits for the trip. Thankfully, Boston-area brides have their choice of luxe stores for any type of post-wedding escapades.
If sand and surf is on your honeymoon agenda, you'll need some one-of-a-kind swimwear. Everything But Water specializes in sexy and flattering swimsuits from on-trend designers like Acacia, Vitamin A, and Mara Hoffman. Brides can also shop for poolside lounging looks at one of their Boston-area boutiques. After all, no resort honeymoon is complete without a bold caftan to match your umbrella drink.
Known for its beach luxury aesthetic, Calypso St. Barth is where you'll find your entire resort wardrobe. The tranquil Newbury Street boutique houses ready-to-wear looks as well as swimsuits and tropical accessories. Brand devotees swear by their breezy cotton dresses and beautifully embroidered tunics.
For a honeymoon to Paris, Milan, or London — or all three! — you'll want to pack your bags with chic, sophisticated pieces that travel easily. Enter Kit and Ace. This contemporary brand focuses on modern styles in wearable, washable, mostly wrinkle-free fabrics. Most of their pieces are done in blacks, whites and neutrals, so the mix-and-match potential is off the charts. Crucial for when you don't want to pack your whole closet for the trip. Bring your hubby with you to their Boston store as they carry menswear too.
If sitting around the pool isn't your style, you'll want to pack comfortable, functional outfits for your active honeymoon. Crane & Lion offers activewear with a fashion focus. Visit their locations in Beacon Hill and South End where you'll discover a variety of fitness gear as well as relaxed separates for that crucial après-workout lounging.

After the excitement (and let's face it, stress) of the wedding calms down, you and your betrothed may be looking forward to a honeymoon filled with doing absolutely nothing. Sounds pretty nice, right? For that occasion, you'll want to have plenty of chic sleepwear on hand. Forty Winks Lingerie Boutique in Cambridge is a go-to for sexy bridal lingerie as well as comfy cool loungewear from trusted brands like Splendid and Eberjey. And if you happen to make it out of the house for a laid-back brunch with your honey, look to Madewell on Newbury for easy separates that make you look instantly polished without even trying.
