Your honeymoon is going to be one of the most loved and cherished memories of your life. And you don’t want to end up in a place that is anything less than perfect. Chances are every one of us, male or female, has thought about the honeymoon at a certain point in life and you might be clear on what you want or where you want to go.
Honeymoon After Your St. Elias Wedding
Planning a honeymoon will be the highlight of your wedding planning, but there are a few aspects that need to be discussed. So grab a bottle of wine and sit down with your fiancé(e) and plan the honeymoon without drifting off into daydreaming.
Where Do You Want to Honeymoon?
You both need to discuss your honeymoon destination. Do you want to unwind on the beach or lace up a pair of hiking boots and explore the wilderness? Or hold hands and take a romantic stroll along the streets of some Rome and popping into restaurants to enjoy local delicacies? The world is filled with endless possibilities, so you can enjoy your favourite activities or step out of your comfort zone and try something new as you set on this new life path.
Make a budget and talk to an agent. If you can’t afford Maldives, chances are you will find a destination that has the same serene waters for a cheaper price. If Europe isn’t quite practical right now, Montreal and Quebec City both have old world charm but are just a quick train ride away.
How Long Will the Honeymoon Be?
After the whole wedding planning, you need to talk about how many days you can take off for the honeymoon. Trust me when I say this, if you are going somewhere far away then you don’t want to spend more time on the flight and less time honeymooning, especially with the jet lag factor. There is nothing wrong with taking a quick weekend away then planning a longer honeymoon later down the road.
Popular Honeymoon Ideas
Whether you want a beach honeymoon or an adventurous one, you can find a location that will fit your budget.
Maldives is the dreamiest, most perfect honeymoon destination but it could cost you a fortune. If you have money to burn then don’t hold back but if not, you don’t want to start the new chapter of your life with a big vacation bill.
If you do not have seasickness, then go on a cruise. It has everything. A 5-star hotel on water with mind-blowing views all day long, packed with entertainment and great food already paid for.
The most important part of a honeymoon is to connect with the one you have chosen to spend the rest of your life with. And where love resides, there is little room for anything else. Hope you have the honeymoon of your dreams!
