When we think of a honeymoon, we tend to think of the most romantic and indulgent couples-only vacation that we’ll ever experience. Of course, that’s not to say that you only need one honeymoon in your lifetime, or that you can’t flip the script a little, such as bringing along your infant son so that you can have a lovely family time out.
But when it comes to planning and managing your honeymoon, what are you to prioritize? Sure, the wedding event itself can often seem relatively straightforward to plan depending on how much you value tradition, but it can be harder to understand just what the actual protocol for honeymoon adventuring might be.
Some people, for instance, might have a honeymoon filled with extreme sports such as skydiving, abseiling and mountain biking. Another may go on a cruise. Some might just spend time in the honeymoon suite of a fancy hotel while enjoying a luxury honeymoon in Greece.
Where are you to begin? Making the absolute most out of a honeymoon in this way can be difficult to assess. In this post, we’ll help you guide your decisions so you can unlock the best outcome for you and your partner. It’s the least you deserve.
Fun Little Indulgences
Fun indulgences can make the absolute most of a honeymoon, because those lovely additions that you may not usually spend on can be a great way to make a trip unique. For instance, you might travel to Scotland and hire a room in a castle as part of your romantic getaway, something you would rarely do otherwise. Or perhaps you could opt for a hotel with pool in room options, making convenience and fun meet hand in hand.
One Day On, One Day Off
You’re fairly occupied with your whirlwind love and romance on your honeymoon, which is why many couples tend to just stay with one another during their experience. This can sometimes lead to a wasted time when you realize you’ve just spent three days with one another eating room service. This is why it’s good to have one day on when you make the most of your surroundings and become productive with your travel, and one day off when you indulge, get romantic, enjoy some wine, and let the night take you where it will. A lovely combination of these efforts can keep you on schedule, without feeling as though you’ve missed out.
Your Most Prized Location
A honeymoon can often seem like the most expensive and essential trip you will ever book, which may encourage some people to head to places they consider the most amazing places on Earth, be that Greece, or the Caribbean Islands, or places like Hawaii. These are all fantastic choices, of course. But what if you just wanted to go somewhere that you both adore, somewhere important to you, and leave those locations for your other trips? It might be that the raining comfort of Paris in winter is more ideal for you, or heading to a small Japanese village can help you forget the world in beautiful mountainous surroundings. Indulgence and adventure is key.
With this advice, you’re sure to make the absolute most out of your honeymoon, through and through.
