Before jetting off on your honeymoon, it's important to be prepared and know what to expect so you and your new husband or wife can relax and enjoy yourselves to the fullest once you're there.
Your Honeymoon - Tips to make your Honeymoon getaway seamless.
While you spend so much time planning every last detail of your wedding ceremony - the cake, the linen, the flowers, even what chairs to seat your guests in - the details of the most important trip of your life could get overlooked. Take some time off from planning the ceremony and fantasize and talk about your honeymoon ideas. After your wedding, when all guests are gone, where do you want to start your new life together? What kind of trip do you both want? A completely romantic and relaxing honeymoon vacation? Or one with some activities and adventure? Below are a few fun and practical tips to help ensure that your honeymoon is everything you anticipate.
Discuss your honeymoon ideas early, start planning and make sure you're both involved.
Set aside some time during the honeymoon trip so each of you can plan at least one surprise romantic evening for each other. You spend so much time planning every minute detail of the wedding, make planning your honeymoon easy and fun!
Take advantage of honeymoon packages that include your air, accommodations and rental car.
Honeymoon packages can offer great savings and convenience. You will find that most honeymoon packages have exclusive benefits too like champagne or spa treatments.
Pre-book tours, activities and shows to reserve the seats you want - that way you will not be disappointed once you get there.
Mentioning prior to your arrival that you are on your honeymoon allows them time to prepare a special experience for you. There are better ways to spend your honeymoon than searching for the things you want to do.
Be sure to use your maiden name making honeymoon travel arrangements.
While you are anxious to use your married name, leaving on your honeymoon trip immediately after the ceremony means you won't have time to change your legal documents, which can make traveling troublesome.
Avoid exhaustion by foregoing early departures when traveling.
This is especially important on your wedding night when you may not be getting much sleep!
Start the honeymoon trip with a complete day of "de-stressing".
For your first day of your honeymoon vacation, instead of tours and a night out on the town, maybe plan a couple's massage and a dinner show. The next day you will feel rested and revived.
Pack for Passion.
Make sure to pack all the essentials for a romantic honeymoon such as honeymoon lingerie, candles, massage oil, bubble bath, and chocolates.
Set the Scene.
Try putting a drop of scented oil on the sheets and pillows, or run a foamy bubble bath and put flowers from outside your room in it. Find out if your honeymoon resort has a CD player or bring your own with some of your favorite music.
You have spent months worrying about everything from ordering the flowers to deciding which forks the guests will use; so, while traveling, stay flexible and forget the absolute perfection you strived for at the ceremony.
If the plane is late or the weather is not cooperating, remember that this is your special time together. Patience and a great sense of humor will carry through into your marriage.
Don't be afraid to tell the world you're on your honeymoon!
Let everyone know you are celebrating the beginning of your life to together and should be treated special. Cheerfully welcome any complimentary offers and upgrades that come your way - after all, you deserve it!
