So you’ve just planned your wedding, and now it’s time to think about the honeymoon. We know this may be the last thing you want to think about – yet more planning – but we can help you to make the process as painless as possible. And the result, of course, will be the best vacation of your life. Here are the best tips we can give you when it comes to planning the best honeymoon.
Figure out what kind of honeymooners you are!
Sit down together and think about how you would really like to spend your honeymoon together? What are your shared interests? Art? History? Adventure? Would you like to see everything the location has to offer or would you rather be pampered in complete luxury for a few weeks? Whatever it is, look for somewhere that has everything you want, somewhere that will really be able to offer you the kind of experience you’ll enjoy. Whether this means a nice spa and all day poolside bar or plentiful ATV options and good nightlife, it’s all up to you.
Set up a honeymoon fund
Set up a honeymoon fund long before you even know where you’re going to go – this will take some of the financial strain from you and your spouse. You could even set up an online piggybank for your honeymoon and give guests the option of donating to it instead of simply buying a wedding gift. This is especially useful if you’re established in your own home and have been for a while as you will likely have many of the things people would usually give as gifts for a wedding. At Villa del Palmar Cancun, you could set up your honeymoon registry.
Plan your honeymoon in advance
Don’t ever leave the booking and planning to the last minute as this will just pile on the stress! Once you know where you want to go and have enough money for a deposit, you can start looking into the best resorts and activities for you. Now would be the time to look into room options as well – see if you can get that sea view you wanted! Don’t forget to tell the hotel that you are honeymooner so they can prepare special treats for you. Take a look at the romantic activities that you can enjoy at Villa del Palmar Cancun.
Do something spectacular
When you get to your destination you should be sure to plan something extra special at some point. Whether this be a big blow out at the spa, swimming with whale sharks or a trip to all the main cultural attractions in the area, it should be something that you will remember for years to come. So go sky diving, visit that remote island or have dinner on the beach at sunset.
Document your trip
Your honeymoon is as precious as your wedding, but it’s more private and so there are less people to remember it. This is why it is sometimes nice to have souvenirs to look over together when you get older. So why not collect a trinket from each important place you visit and pop them all in a nice box – maps, flyers, ticket stubs and small ornaments, or even pebbles from the beach, a cork from the champagne and receipts from the restaurants. All of these things can help you to remember in years to come and, unlike taking many photos, they don’t distance you from the situation.
Wherever you choose to go for your honeymoon it is most important that you enjoy this alone time with your partner. After all it is one of the few times in life where the realities of day to day living won’t interfere.
