Let’s talk about baggage (no, not THAT kind of baggage).

Planning a honeymoon in Hawaii? A getaway wedding in New Hampshire? No matter what the occasion is, when it comes to prepping for a trip, quality luggage should always be the first thing you consider. Shoddy luggage will wear quickly with all the throwing around and your stuff won’t be as protected. Wouldn’t you be so wrecked if your favorite college-T had succumbed to a catastrophic cologne spill? To avoid these types of mishaps, it’s best to have a case with pockets and compartments to help keep you organized — and a dopp kit to keep toiletries from being exposed.

Below are some travel bag options I’ve found, ranging from suitcases and carry-ons, all the way down to shoe bags (keep those shoes clean, fellas!). I also threw in a garment bag for those that are shopping for a destination wedding.

    Editor's note: Carrie hasn't actually made it to the altar yet, so her declaration that "the honeymoon is the best thing about the wedding" is not founded on actual facts or experience. We felt the need to tack on a legally irrelevant disclaimer alerting you, the reader, (henceforth referred to herein as "the reader") of that fact.  As you must have realized by now, Zach…

    After getting engaged in Peru we were beyond excited.  I, being extremely type-A, couldn't wait to dive into planning!  The only problem was that we were traveling for three more months after the proposal.  Being in South America and having no idea where we'd be living or working or anything when we got back, there wasn't much detailed planning we could do.  So we decided…
