Once your wedding day is over it is time to plan your honeymoon. It doesn’t really matter if you are planning your honeymoon right after your wedding, before or a couple of months later you will still need to make sure that you are on the same page as your spouse. That is why both of you will need to be planning the honeymoon. Here are some tips on how you can plan your perfect honeymoon.
Planning the Honeymoon:
- Pick a Perfect Destination Together
Sometimes picking the perfect honeymoon destination will be the hardest part because you and your spouse have to agree on it. If you are both into luxury and pampering yourself then go for something more like an all-inclusive resort. On the other hand, if you are a couple who enjoys adventures then picking a remote destination is the best way to go. The most important thing is that you both agree on the place that you pick in the end.
Most people have their perfect honeymoon planned even before the wedding, but those who don’t should start planning it at least six months in advance. Make sure that you research all the details like what is the usual weather there or what is the best time to visit the place.
- Decide How Long It Will Last
The usual duration of a honeymoon is seven to ten days. But it is completely personal and in the end, it all depends on how many days off your job offers as well as how big your budget is.
During the Honeymoon:
Instead of just laying around on the beach and sipping on champagne go out with your spouse and experience some adventures as a married couple. Your possibilities are endless, no matter where you go. Try something that neither of you ever tried, that way you will create new memories as a married couple. That will make your honeymoon that much special because you will have fun things to look back on.
There is nothing more romantic than being just married and laying under the amazing starry sky. To make it an even better experience, find a place that is outside and not near any cities so there is no artificial lighting. That way you will be able to lay down and get the full experience of the stars. It is truly a thing that every newly married couple should do.
- Don’t Forget To Have Date Nights
People often forget to have date nights when they are married but dates are still very important. Even when you are on your honeymoon take some time and go on a couple of special dates. Go out and try some new types of food, try doing new things and make new memories and traditions.
After the Honeymoon:
Coming home after your honeymoon and getting hit in the face with the real world can be tough. For some people, the first thing they do is call the emergency locksmith because they either lost or forgot their keys during the honeymoon. Getting back to reality can be hard, but there are important things that need to be done like writing thank-you notes and opening all the gifts.
- Deal with Your Wedding Dress
If you are planning on keeping your wedding dress it is important that you preserve it as fast as possible. Because let’s face it, it was a big investment. There are many ways to do so, you can get it professionally preserved or simply store it in a dry space like a closet. If you want it to stay in great condition don’t put it in a box and leave it in your basement. Some people even sell their dresses, it is totally up to you what you will do with it.
- Get Your Wedding Photos Printed
If you left on your honeymoon right after the wedding, which means that when you come home the pictures will be done and ready to be printed. Although now that we live in a digitally advanced time not a lot of people print their photos, it’s a great thing to have for memory.
A honeymoon is the first long period of time you will spend with your spouse and it needs to be special. The only important thing is that both of you are enjoying the time that you are spending with each other.
