Luggage is a purchase you only make once every few years (hopefully), so it's important to shop wisely. While you're of course looking for quality travel gear that's durable and roomy, you don't want to go broke before you've even gotten to the airport. Wedding and honeymoon planning is expensive enough — so avoid spending a small fortune by shopping luggage from stores like Kohl's and Walmart. The luggage sets ahead are functional, fashionable and, best of all, affordable — they're all under $150.
With Cinderella's dainty slipper in their collective memories, some brides seldom think about comfortable shoes on the big day. But there's no wisdom in wearing wobbly stilettos to an event at which you might actually want to dance. Modern brides are opting for practical wedding shoes that can be worn more than once, as opposed to extremely high-heeled shoes that leave their tootsies blistered on the honeymoon. Also, we get it: Some very tall brides prefer to seek out more sensible heels, including flats, wedges and kitten heels that may also boast cushioned footbeds and supportive straps. So if you, too, want to dance the night away at your wedding, check out this list of swoon-worthy wedding flats that are just as ravishing as 4-inch heels (and much more practical). These styles from ASOS, Nordstrom, David's Bridal and more will take you from the ceremony to the after party in blissful comfort.
Ah, the honeymoon: It's the glittering light at the end of the wedding tunnel. It lures newlyweds to the getaway car with a siren's song of romance, self-indulgence and drinks topped with little paper umbrellas. There's only one stressor: What to pack? No worries. Like James Bond on a jet, we'll have you readily prepared for foreign travels and relaxing vistas with our list of must-pack honeymoon items. The goal is to keep the luggage light by packing wrinkle-resistant clothes and comfy-yet-stylish shoes that go the distance. Taken together, these items provide ease, comfort and style, along with day-to-night dressing. If the sun is on your horizon, you should also pack the requisite beauty products to keep your hair glistening and your skin sunburn-free. Read our list of travel must-haves from Anthropologie, Tory Burch, Nordstrom and more. Then hit the open road safe in the knowledge that you've got this honeymoon in the bag!
Every beach wedding delivers the basics: salt air, gorgeous views, crashing waves and unmatched tranquility. Beyond those elements, what more do you need? Decor that is fit for a beach bride, that's what! Seaside motifs, whether subtle or over-the-top, can heighten an already breathtaking scene. Among the complementary imagery and materials for a beach wedding are ocean-derived items such as sea glass, starfish, sand dollars, coral fans and clam shells. Some brides can choose to go a little more nautical by incorporating sailor knots, rugged rope, fishing floats and anchors. Placing some palm leaves in strategic locations will up the tropical isle vibe. Check out a treasure trove of beautiful items from Etsy, Michaels, Walmart and more that will enrich your waterfront wedding.
