Once the wedding is over, that’s not (almost unbelievably) the end of the planning. You’ve also got to think about the honeymoon. Don’t underestimate how much there is to think about, after all, this is supposed to be the best trip ever – a real once in a lifetime deal.
So here’s what you need to think about.
Talk openly about what you really want from a honeymoon. The last thing you need to is to try too hard to make each other happy and end up with something neither of you really wants.
This is your chance to do something you’ve always dreamed of. After this, you’ll settle into married life, there might be kids and the opportunity might never come round again.
Somewhere new for both of you
Never go back to somewhere one or both of you have been before. This is about going on a completely new adventure together, a symbol of your new life to come.
Go big on the room
Don’t skimp on the details. Get the biggest and best room. Eat at the fanciest restaurants. If you can’t enjoy it now then when can you?
Go with the right frame of mind. Say yes to everything, try new experiences and keep an open mind. You never know what you might discover about yourselves and each other.
Don’t worry, be happy. Go with the flow and don’t let anything get in the way of having a great time. After all the stress of the wedding, give your mind and body some breathing space
Think dinner on the beach and romantic horse rides. This is about creating memories that will last for ever.
Share the love
This might be your special trip but nothing makes you feel better about yourselves than sharing the love. Volunteer, donate to good local causes and help out your dream destination if you can.
Bring back something special
Avoid the tacky stuff but a special souvenir (think paintings, artworks, even tattoos – ok, maybe not tattoos) will help you remember your trip for ever.
