Rain forecasted for your honeymoon? We’ve got you covered…
September 22, 2016
In a world where Hollywood movies all have happy endings, Disney princesses are never found comfort-eating chocolate all afternoon, and sunshine is synonymous with happiness, you could be forgiven for thinking that a downpour during your honeymoon could make it a complete disaster. But that’s all a state of mind. If you’ve been worried, like Alanis, that rain on your wedding day will make the whole experience ironic, then let’s put your mind at rest. Here are some ideas to turn a wet weekend in Weston or a showery stay in the Seychelles into the perfect honeymoon after all.
First off, if you’re planning to spend any time in the outdoors, prepare for the possible weather issues and then just enjoy it. A city break visiting the coffee shops and taking in the historic sights could be all the more romantic as you wander the cobbled streets sharing an umbrella. Remember that these are memories that you’ll be keeping one way or the other, so let potential stress factors turn into a fun and treasured anecdote. If you’ve come away for a walking or activity break, you’ll already know that preparing for rain is part of the experience. So let it rain if it’s going to, it’s all part of the experience.
On a grey day, how about finding some indoor pastimes. Eating and drinking is likely to be a safe bet. The grey skies are less likely to trouble you if you’re looking at them through a window while tucking into a deliciously warming pasta dish with a glass of chianti. Or how about visiting the hotel spa for a decadent pampering session while you wait for the clouds to pass. If that’s not your kind of thing, how about watching a movie together.
And at the end of the day, who cares if it’s raining. Go out and get wet. Come back home in the warm and dry and have a laugh about it. Rain or sunshine, you’re married and that’s what matters. Isn’t it? Either that, or book yourself a honeymoon in the desert and you can probably leave the clear umbrella behind!
