What to Wear on Your Babymoon

Are you planning a babymoon? If so, what are you going to wear? There are many different options when it comes to what to pack for your trip, but we have narrowed it down to our best outfits for every type of babymoon. 

Whether you're spending your time on the beach or exploring a new city, we have you covered! Keep reading for our top picks for the perfect babymoon outfit.

What to wear on your Babymoon summer getaway

Firstly, What is a babymoon?

A babymoon is a special holiday you and your partner take before the baby arrives. It's an opportunity to spend some quality time together while you prepare for all the changes that will come with having a baby.

Babymoon vs Honeymoon. 

Same idea, very different feeling, right? 

Much like your honeymoon, your babymoon is meant to have all the frills of love, attraction, beauty and luxury. 

Best time for a babymoon?

Ideally, the best time to go on a babymoon is during your second trimester when you feel most energetic and comfortable. During this time, you will also be able to travel more easily compared to what will happen in the third trimester.

Not sure how to feel the part being 20+ weeks pregnant? 

A babymoon is a time for connection, pampering, and romance which, at this stage of your life, calls for comfortable and functional looks. At Cherry Melon we got you covered to (at least) look the part! So whether you’re planning a vaycay or a staycay, here are some great ideas to dress for the occasion. 

What is a Babymoon

Best Babymoon Locations:

The Beach Babymoon

Nothing says babymoon quite like an island resort or poolside chill. There is something so inviting about being near water when you’re pregnant. Our summer dresses (see Tips for Surviving a Summer Pregnancy) are the perfect companion for those beach walks and mocktails by the pool with your partner. 

The perfect beach babymoon outfit should be light and airy. Choose flowy maxi dresses, comfortable sandals, and a floppy sun hat. Bring along some light cover-ups for when the wind picks up or you need to make a quick errand run.

The Urban Babymoon 

If your babymoon destination is an urban city, then you'll want clothes that are stylish yet comfortable.

Although you might trade in that half-marathon for a gentle stroll, a babymoon will definitely involve some sightseeing and walking. Get comfy in these versatile bicycle shorts.

Pack a combination of casual clothes and dressier pieces so you can go from day to night with ease. Try pairing our maxi dress with some chic wedges or heels if you plan to dine out. Don’t forget your sun hat and sunglasses for day trips!

The Home Babymoon 

If you've opted for a staycation, then it's time to pick out some cosy outfits that are perfect for lounging around the house. Look for loose-fitting clothes like our breathable summer dresses. Pack a few pairs of lounge shorts and tank tops for lounging in the backyard or taking a walk around your neighbourhood.
