Wedding season is rapidly approaching—which means honeymoon season isn’t far behind! To help you get prepared for the most romantic adventure of your life (at least, so far!) we’ve pulled together a few packing essentials that work for every kind of a getaway. We’re kicking off this series with beach-bag must haves for tropical locales…

1.
J Crew Amie Maxi Dress
Float from chaise lounge to sunset dinner in this bright rayon-spandex maxi dress, which works double-duty as a daytime cover-up and airy evening gown. ($98; jcrew.com)

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream For Face SPF 55 PA+++
Score serious sun protection with Shiseido’s creamy (yet non-greasy) youth-defending block. The SPF 55 formula wards off harmful UVA and UVB rays, but the hydrating recipe keeps your pores looking pretty. ($28; Sephora.com)

Pare Umbrella

4.
Pare Umbrella
Tropical showers don’t stand a chance against this cheery batik-print umbrella, (plus, it’s pretty enough to stick in the sand when you need a little shade). Pare Umbrella; Mod Battic; 36” coverage width, 34” overall length; purple and orange  ($65; pareumbrella.com)

5.
Sea Bags for JCrew Medium Tote
Go nautical with this preppy tote that’s made out of reclaimed sails (so no two will ever be alike). The bag is crossed with notice-me “see-worthy” straps, and its both durable and water resistant—so you can use it for outings long after the honeymoon comes to a close. ($168; jcrew.com)

Happy Isle Run Skort
Lost Girl Holly Corbett tried out this super-cute, stretchy skirt with built-in shorts and says they’re perfect for hanging out on the beach, but cute enough to dress up for dinner or a stroll through town. “They look best with strappy sandals and sexy tank, she says. ($54; athleta.gap.com).
