Your honeymoon is the culmination of your wedding experience. Once you get away from the crowds of well-wishers, it’s time for you to focus on each other and enjoy yourselves. While you may not normally lead a glamorous lifestyle, the honeymoon is a great time to allow yourself to experience a little luxury.
You are going to be doing a lot of resting and relaxing on your honeymoon. It’s important that the place you’re staying in can help with that. Having luxurious accommodations can be particularly nice on the wedding night. Don’t settle for a regular hotel room. Look for a place with lots of room, a great view, and stylish accommodations. A mountain retreat, lakeside cabin, or beach resort are all great options. If you’re a nonsmoker, look for a hotel that prohibits smoking.
Traveling in Style
Many people take their honeymoon as an opportunity to explore some of the world. This means that you’ll be spending a large portion of your honeymoon on the road or in the air. If you’re flying, fly first class. This will allow you to be comfortable as you snuggle up to your new spouse. You’ll also enjoy better food. For traveling to and from the airport, skip the cab and book a limousine! When you arrive at your hotel, you can have more fun with your transportation by getting a luxury rental car. Just make sure that you care for it properly. Use 91 or 93 octane fuel for a Porsche or any other European vehicle to keep it running cleanly and efficiently.
Fine Dining Experiences
Nothing makes you feel like you are living in luxury than eating in luxury. Plan for your eating experiences by placing reservations at fine dining establishments. Depending on the popularity of the location, you may have to call in a few weeks or months in advance. Getting a reservation will allow you to be seated quickly when you arrive which will allow you to avoid waiting in a crowded restaurant entry area. Don’t only consider restaurants. You can also book a catering service to set you up a fine dinner at a location of your choice. This could be an excellent way to have a private dinner on the beach or in the mountains.
With all the excitement and things to do, make sure that you leave yourself some time for romance. Romantic activities can be as simple as going on walks, or something a little more extravagant like horse back rides. You could also have a great time by having a formal dance. Getting dressed in your finest and dancing in a ballroom with your love can make you feel like you are in a scene straight out of the movies. If you don’t know how to dance, consider booking a couple’s dance lesson from a nearby ballroom studio.
Don’t Set Your Alarm
Your honeymoon should not involve outside distractions. That definitely includes anything that requires you to wake up to an alarm. While you may want to get up early for a special activity, avoid setting your alarm and allow yourself to wake up naturally. This will help ensure that you get the sleep and relaxation that you need. Chances are that you are going to have a lot of late nights, so make sure that you have late mornings as well. You don’t want to ruin your honeymoon by running on no sleep and getting cranky at your spouse.
Take a few formal changes of clothes with you on your honeymoon. A nice suit or tux for men and an evening dress for women are the perfect outfits for an elegant evening. You’re going to want to have nice pictures of these events so take the time to make yourself look nice. Putting on a show for your spouse can help reaffirm their physical attraction to you. You’ll also find that when you wear high class clothing, you’ll feel like a classy person.
You can make a meal extra romantic by hiring live entertainment. An opera singer, string-quartet, jazz-singer, or harpist are all great options. If personal entertainment is outside of your budget, you could consider going to see a live performance. Musicals, plays, operas, and concerts are all very high class and enriching events. Seeing something so exclusive is a great way to make a lasting memory on your honeymoon.
There are going to be days during your honeymoon when you just want to stay inside and get flirty with your spouse in bed. These days get even better if you can have quality food delivered to your door. Pick a place that offers fine dining room service and you’ll be set. Another benefit of a place with room service is cleaning. You shouldn’t have to worry about doing chores on your honeymoon. Having someone to pick up after you, make your bed, take out the trash, and clean the room can be nice.
Depending on the length of your stay, it may not be practical for you to take enough clothes to last the whole trip. You’re probably going to need to get your laundry done. However, why do it yourself? While it may be a little pricey, laundry service is an excellent way to remove a tedious chore during your honeymoon, along with other advantages. You can simply leave your clothes in a bag and go about your honeymoon activities. The laundry service will pick it up and return it when it has been washed, folded, and pressed.
Parking at resorts, hotels, restaurants, and other luxury locations can be a bit of a nightmare. It’s really no fun to spend forever looking for a spot and then lug all your bags to your room. Save yourself the hassle by using a valet. You’ll feel like royalty when you pull up to the front door and toss a valet your keys. You can usually give your room number to them and they can arrange to have your bags delivered.
You may not be able to afford to do all these things. That’s ok. But you should at least pick a few of them. Don’t go on your honeymoon stressing about the cost. Spend some time saving up for the trip and then allow yourself to splurge a little.
