Honeymoon Eberjey Lingerie
Lady Godiva Cami Honeymoon Lingerie

Have you packed the essentials? Perfect. Let’s move on to the fun part! Honeymoons are supposed to be about romance, intimacy, and finally having a relaxing getaway with your new husband or wife. How can you make this vacation even more special? Stock an iPod with plenty of romantic love songs. Bring along massage oils and bubble bath. The most important piece of clothing to pack? Bridal lingerie, of course! My favorite line happens to be Eberjey. This line of lingerie has the sex appeal you’re looking for, without losing the the comfort you need. The chemises and camis are cozy, with romantic lace details in soft colors. Finally—lingerie that both of you can enjoy. Shop Lingerie

Good Morning!

Recently, I had to spend an agonising 3 months of my life in planning my honeymoon break! Following my ordeal, I have put together a guide on how to save money on a honeymoon (all based on my experience and independent research). I would like to contribute this guide to your blog to enlighten your readers a little.

I have saved the article inside my google drive:

I am very sorry but I did not have the time to find many images (I included a couple only) so I would be grateful if you could add some of your own.

It would be fab if you could ping me the url of the published post as I would like to show off a little in front of my Facebook friends!

Have a great day!
