Simple Ways To Ease Any Honeymoon Travel Worries
September 5, 2017
With your wedding coming up, you know all about budgeting and organising. By the time it gets to your honeymoon you’ll be an event planning pro! But still on the horizon is the first holiday you’re going to get to go on as a married couple, where you'll be hoping to create lifelong memories and moments you’ll treasure.
It’s a tall order, and can feel like a lot of hard work just at the moment you could do with a rest. But we have a few tips to help ease the pain.
First of all, make sure you’re not over-extending yourself when it comes to the finances. If you only have a few hundred pounds to spare after the wedding, you may want to consider travelling out of season, or choosing a destination closer to home.
There are many stunning destinations right on the doorstep here in the UK, whether you fancy driving through the incredible cinematic mountainous northern landscape of Glencoe, or the breakfast on the beach, down there in Padstow. Even if you have more to spend, always remember there's life beyond the honeymoon. Think how much you’ll thank yourself for being wise with the money rather than blowing it all on champagne!
Just because it's a honeymoon, you don’t have to jet off on your wedding day, or even the day after. If your guests have partied into the night, or even if you didn’t have an evening do, the energy it takes to get through the wedding day can be exhausting. Consider a rested, leisurely start a day or two after, so that you can keep your travel free of tired irritation and be ready to enjoy each other’s company on the journey.
Finally - and this one is a state of mind rather than a practicality - breathe deeply, and don’t feel under pressure to make every moment of your honeymoon worthy of an OK Magazine photo shoot.
We can all think our wedding has to match the celebrities, but don’t forget, they have an entourage of assistants and professionals on hand to present their readers with an aspirational story that is far from real life. The truth is they need a packing list too, and a toothbrush will be on theirs just likely as it is on yours. So chill out, have fun, and bon voyage!
