We all go through a bit of a honeymoon period at the start of relationships. You know, the stage where you can’t seem to keep away from each other. Then habit sets in, we start noticing their faults…and the honeymoon period ends. However, if you still have a great relationship, marriage tends to follow. Getting married is such an exciting time, especially because of the actual honeymoon you both get to have afterwards! Start your honeymoon as you mean to go on, and you might just find the honeymoon period doesn’t end this time. Read on to find out how you can make this happen…
Set Up Your Honeymoon Fund Early
The earlier you set up your honeymoon fund, the more money you’ll have to enjoy this once in a lifetime experience. You’re only going to do this once, so don’t worry about blowing too much cash and just have fun! Start putting money away as early on as possible. You could even ask guests for a contribution instead of a gift. There are many polite ways to do this, so don’t feel bad for asking!
Find The Perfect Setting For Your Honeymoon
Finding the perfect setting for your honeymoon is going to make this time in your lives even more special. Is there somewhere you’ve both always wanted to go? You could be relaxing on sunny Brittany beaches, or paragliding over gorgeous mountains. This is all about the two of you and what you’re into, so make sure your location suits your personality as a couple and how you’d like to spend your time.
Stay Flexible With Your Itinerary
The key to having a wonderful time, is staying flexible with your itinerary. The one rule on your honeymoon should be that there are no rules. You should both feel free to spend this time however you like. If you want to drop something from your to-do list, then do it. Keeping it fun and free will help you both to relax and really enjoy your honeymoon.
Read Accommodation Reviews Before Booking
Your accommodation is going to be the backdrop to your stay. You might eat romantic meals here, take baths together, gaze over the balcony as the sunsets…you get the drift. Read accommodation reviews before you book so you know that it’s suitable. Don’t be afraid to tell them it’s your honeymoon. You might get an upgrade or something cool like that!
Don’t Hold On Too Tightly To Expectation
Let go of all expectations for your honeymoon. It might not be perfect. A couple of things might not go to plan. If you can let go of expectation, none of it will matter. What matters is that you get to spend some quality time with the person you’re going to spend your life with!
Plan Surprises For Your Other Half
Why not plan surprises for your other half? Maybe you could book a surprise tour or excursion, or order room service.
And When You Get Home…
When you get home, it’s time to start your lives together as husband and wife! Try not to get a honeymoon hangover, and keep the excitement alive as long as you can. Make everyday your honeymoon with little surprises and gestures of love!
