I wanted to showcase just a few items that I have sourced for brides and grooms for the Honeymoon. Some of my traditional brides start planning for their honeymoon way in advance and tuck their purchases away in their closet or hope chest…others shop right up until the very end.
I hope you enjoy the pieces below and have a Fabulous Honeymoon!
Enchanting Chemise and Short Chiffon Wrap in Pearl White: This sexy chemise is everything you would dream of for your Honeymoon nightwear. The semi-sheer wireless lace cups are adorned with elegant floral embroidery along the neckline and centre front. This design is completely mesmerizing. The woven polyester fabric is silky smooth with a luster and flows beautifully; this is very lightweight and great for warm weather. The classic pearl white colour is timeless, graceful and alluring, perfect for your Honeymoon. Sizes available from small through to 3XL, with adjustable straps. Pair with the matching wrap; the lovely light sheer chiffon robe features stunning floral embroidery along the top edges and at the ¾ sleeve openings. The design is delicate and truly romantic, with chiffon sash ties. Slip on over the enchanting chemise for a captivating honeymoon look.

Having grown up and lived in the Bahamas for many years and planning my Maui weddings, I love jewellery with sea shells, starfish, sand dollars and turquoise. When writing this posting there was only one jewellery designer that came to mind and that was Catherine Weitzman, based in Oahu, Hawaii.
Catherine has always had an attraction to jewellery and an innate love of working with her hands. It wasn’t until Catherine and husband and co-creator Scott Diamond returned from a five-year adventure around the globe that she would be ready to start her signature line of handmade jewelry. She and her husband built a studio in Hawaii where all the jewellery is still handmade today.
The designs are an integration of Catherine’s experiences: they are deeply informed by her travels, her childhood in the city, her love of nature and water, and the way a single piece of jewellery connects the designer, the hands that made it, and the person who sees it, wears it and makes it her own.
I love showcasing some of her beautiful creations that can be purchased here in Vancouver, BC at Blue Ruby in their many locations and Edgewood Farm in Quesnel, BC and in selected stores in Hawaii.

“I am always thinking about bringing glamorous fashion and style to every aspect of a woman’s life”, says Carolina Herrera. “The beach or pool should be just another moment to be chic”. With her new swimwear line, the designer has given us a hand in achieving the ultimate in poolside glamour. Think scoop-back one-pieces and high-waisted bikinis in bright, classic Herrera prints drawn from her archives. “These whimsical prints lend themselves to warm weather destinations, which is why I felt it was the right time to design swimwear”.

Swimco is a family run company, started 40 years ago in Calgary, Alberta by current Swimco President Lori Bacon’s mother, Corinne. Her goal was to treat all of our customers as our friends, and that is the approach that we take when we help our customers find a swimsuit that helps them feel their best. The reason behind Swimco remains the same, to help customers find the right fit, to help them Feel Good Half Naked.
For honeymoons on the beach:
- Bring more than one suit! The last thing you want is to be bored with your outfits on the beach, plus rotating between suits will prevent too much wear and tear.
- Definitely rinse your suits and clean with swimwear cleaner to keep the colour of your suit vibrant and the fit from losing its shape.
- Think versatility – to keep packing light, go for multi-functional pieces like surf capris that can also work for beach yoga, or sleek one pieces that when paired with a sarong can go from poolside to cocktails.
HAIR and MAKUP CARE ON HONEYMOON:
- Treat hair with oil-infused texture sprays.
- Surf Infusion by BumbleandBumble.com and Sun Bum.
- Beach Formula Sea Spray…Trustthebum.
- Spray sunscreen-infused face mists are popular to be sprayed over makeup, even when you are not in the sun. Coola SPF 30 Organic Makeup setting spray Coolasuncare.com.
