Straw Bags Under $100 That Are the Perfect Honeymoon Accessories
Tote around your sunscreen and flip flops in one of these cute catch-alls.
It's no secret that planning a wedding can be very stressful. When you're so busy selecting the right stationery and choosing seating arrangements, registering for gifts and booking your big-day vendors, organizing all the details might make you feel more like you've taken on a second full-time job instead of having the chance to plan the most meaningful party of your life. In the end, everything will be perfect (we promise!) but on the days when it feels like a never-ending process, we suggest remembering the light at the end of the tunnel: the honeymoon. Yes, the end goal is to officially marry the love of your life, but stealing away on a romantic vacation is certainly the icing on top of the cake. The honeymoon will be a reprieve from all that stress and a chance for you and your partner to finally take a deep breath and enjoy each other, alone.
The other fun part about your honeymoon? Getting to pick out non wedding-related clothes and accessories that you can utilize long after the trip is over. If you're heading somewhere tropical, there's no shortage of pretty hats, swimsuits, and breezy, effortless slip dresses to choose from. You'll also want to make sure you have the perfect straw bag to tote around all of your beach-day essentials. As luck would have it, straw bags and baskets have been trending for the past couple of years, so you have plenty of styles to choose from. They're not only trendy but also happen to be classic pieces worthy of a spot in your wardrobe. If that's not a reason to treat yourself to something special, we don't know what is.
But treating yourself doesn't have to break the bank—and that's good news for any bride who's carefully watching her wedding-day budget. We found a selection of gorgeous straw bags that make perfect honeymoon accessories and cost less than $100. That's right! These pretty carry-alls are so affordable you could even grab more than one.
This straw bag goes from beach to dinner flawlessly—all you need to do is swap out your swimsuit for a flowy floral dress.
