Time To Celebrate
Well, you did it! You’re officially married, and it is now time to celebrate your accomplishment in your dream destination. Planning a honeymoon can be tricky, because the options are seemingly endless… Caribbean, Napa Valley, Italy – just to name a few. So, how can you make a decision when everywhere seems so perfect?
A good first step is to figure out what you’re wanting out of your vacation. While lying on a beach may sound like paradise, choosing a spot where there are also plentiful activities is important too. For example, if you decide on a tropical resort, make sure you check out the surrounding areas to see if there are local restaurants, excursion options, etc. Immediately following your hectic wedding, you’ll most likely want a few days to relax, and “just be”. As your trip goes on, you’ll want to spend time making your first memories as husband and wife! Whether you hope relax or explore, in a hot climate or cold climate, making that first decision will get the ball rolling in the planning of your honeymoon. Before you get too stressed, congratulations on making your first plan for being husband and wife!
Once you have settled on a ‘type’ of destination, using the timeless ‘process of elimination’ is a great way to narrow down your options. Start off by compiling a list of potential spots with your hubby-to-be, and then cross off any that you aren’t both dying to go to. After all, this is a celebration of unity, and you want to agree on your first official vacation equally!
Now this is the tricky part… After you have narrowed down your potential destinations, the remaining handful are all going to seem perfect. This is when you should begin to look into additional factors of each trip. This may include price, travel time, surrounding areas, and temperature. Getting some ‘inside scoop’ could also be helpful in sealing the deal. There are hundreds of guest reviews on travel websites that may give you advice that you wouldn’t have originally known! No matter what you choose, the most important part is that you spend your fairytale celebrations in a place that is special to you and your spouse. And when you return to begin your lives together, try not to enter a ‘post vacation depression’, because remember, this is just the beginning!
