The wedding is over, and now you and your partner can spend some quality time together that doesn’t involve planning what color the bridesmaid should wear or who should sit at which table. Honeymoons used to be a much bigger deal, but now many couples are working more, it can be difficult to find the time off. Not to mention that some of the greatest escapes now cost a pretty penny. Honeymoon planning can be difficult since you will feel the pressure to make it amazing. That being said, just because planning your wedding may have been a bit stressful doesn’t mean that your honeymoon has to be, too. As a couple, this is your chance to relax and enjoy each other’s company.
1. Spice it up.
Your honeymoon is the biggest trip of your life with your favorite person. It’s a way to continue celebrating your love after your wedding day, and you probably won’t be able to keep your hands off of one another. Make sure you pack some lingerie or plus size lingerie for your perfect destination. You will want to feel just as beautiful as you did on your wedding day, so buy yourself some new lingerie to make yourself feel extra special. Lingerie ads may usually depict smaller women in bras and panties, but that’s just not reflective of reality. If you’re a plus-size woman, there are plenty of sexy options out there, regardless of your body type—from panties and thongs to lace bras and teddies. Plus size women have fun, too, after all. Try choosing your partner’s favorite color or that accentuates their favorite part of your body. It is also a good idea to have some sexy sleep outfits like a babydoll nightgown. Silk is the best since not only will it keep you cool. It’s also soft to the touch, which means your spouse won’t be able to keep their hands off of you. You can even get matching bras and panties for the daytime.
2. Embrace the chill.
It is perfectly okay if all you and your love want to do is sit on the beach drinking Pina Coladas. You will want to try and book the trip when it is best for both of you. Tradition may have said at one point that you go right after you say your vows, but that isn’t necessarily the case now. More and more newlyweds are opting to go at another time during the year. At the end of the day, you have to do what is best for you and your schedules. Remember, you may be tired, so it is important to remember that jet-lag could be an issue. When planning the trip, make sure to incorporate some leisure days at your peaceful vacation destination. You can still include more active days, just stagger it a bit, and don’t be afraid to just chill together. After all, it’s the togetherness that’s the point.
3. Put your social media on hold.
Put your phones and computers away. A vacation or honeymoon is meant to be a break from your day to day life, so take a moment to really be present where you are. Many of us find it extremely difficult to give up our technology, but it is really one of the best things we can do. By putting your phone down, you will automatically feel less stressed and fully commit yourself to the experience. Your friends and family already know you are away, so who do you really need to speak with? Whether you’re horseback riding, sitting by a gorgeous waterfall, watching the northern lights, or traveling around the United States, you’ll want to experience your vacation fully without any tech-related distractions.
4. Shout it to the world!
Tell your hotel ahead of time that it’s your honeymoon. Most have special packages that they can offer you, whether it’s champagne and strawberries on arrival or a nice couple’s massage package. If you get lucky enough, you may even get upgraded to a luxury suite! It will make you and your partner feel extra special while still riding the high of your wedding.
5. Buy travel insurance.
While no one wants to think of a bad situation happening, the reality is that you truly never know. It is better to be safe than sorry, so buying travel insurance will help you from losing money if an emergency arises. It’s easy to buy and will allow you to enjoy your perfect destination without worrying about anything bad happening.
Honeymoon planning is the fun part. It is time to get away and enjoy each other. Enjoy your honeymoon!
