As the desire for the sand in your toes and the cool breeze from the ocean (lake or Gulf) flashes before you, what better time to start planning a tropical getaway?

New Orleans Bride Magazine contributing editor Becca Hensley has been gifting brides and grooms with the ultimate honeymoon locales in recent issues of the magazine. Since it’s never too early to start packing, Let Them Eat Cake decided to help move the process along with a few of our favorites from New Orleans retailers. These Big Easy favorites will have you repping your hometown from here to Tahiti.

 

First, you’ll need a beach bag. This Orleans Canvas Tote Bag from Fleurty Girl will be the envy of all beach bags.

Fill your new bag up with a few New Orleans Bride Magazines for a little light reading and don’t forget your Native Polish. The new spring line has tropical and soft, dainty options amp up those honeymoon vibes.

Since you’re still in wedded bliss, make sure to pack your white Esther Williams Classic two-piece suit from Trashy Diva. Pair it with their San Diego Extra Large Brim white hat and the Josephine sunglasses from Krewe du Optic and you will be ready to go.
