After getting married – perhaps the most memorable day of your life – comes your honeymoon, a holiday like no other and one you will want to treasure forever. Weddings can be expensive affairs and so can the honeymoon, but by finding the honeymoon destination for you and your spouse-to-be, you can leave these concerns behind and enjoy a wonderful first holiday as a married couple that marks the start of your lives together as Mr and Mrs.
Popular destinations for newlyweds include idyllic tropical getaways to the Caribbean, the Seychelles, Hawaii, Bali or Mauritius and city breaks in capitals of romance such as Rome, Paris, Venice or New York. Booking in advance is often key to securing the cheapest flights and honeymoon deals, and such savings may even make Business or First Class flights a more viable prospect if you decide that the added luxury will make the journey, as well as the holiday, more special.
Honeymoon deals are frequently available from travel agents and airlines, often including honeymoon suites or otherwise upgraded accommodation, chauffeur services from the airport, flowers and champagne upon arrival, and even romantic candlelit dinners. Some hotels require proof of marriage, for instance your marriage certificate, so be sure to bring it with you. Don’t be afraid to let hotels, restaurants and others know that you’ve just gotten married, as many will be only too pleased to offer free drinks and other extras to ensure that you have a wonderful stay.
Whatever your honeymoon destination, there are bound to be a many free or inexpensive activities in which you can relish your surroundings and each other’s company. On beach breaks to the likes of Hawaii or Bali, enjoy long walks on the sand, gorgeous sunsets, and evening cocktails by the sea. In Venice, a romantic gondolier ride may float your boat, or in Paris you may wish to stroll along the Champs Elysees and see the sun go down by the river Seine.
A honeymoon truly is a holiday of a lifetime, so find your ideal honeymoon destination (take a look at some of the most romantic hotels in the world) and set your married life off to a flying start.
