This week, it worked out on my blog to have some contributed posts and to host an author’s post (her first marriage was at 62!) that all have to do with weddings. I like this article below because instead of suggesting specific places to take a honeymoon or special romantic trip, it gives you three general categories to think about when deciding where to go…
Picking your honeymoon spot is important and special. It celebrates the two of you starting your life together, and it will be one of the special memories of your marriage. Weddings are wonderful, but sometimes the alone time you spend exploring a location with your new partner, or your partner with which you have reaffirmed your vows, is very important.
Where should you go on your honeymoon? If you’re struggling for ideas, the massive realm of possibility can overwhelm you. It’s not like with marriage on the horizon you have little to plan for anyway. For this reason, thinking about your honeymoon in the following places might be the wisest areas to begin.
Somewhere Emotionally Wholesome
Your relationship with someone is often part of a wider narrative, and it all spawned from the day you met. If you met somewhere interesting, why not schedule your honeymoon there? For example, if you met on vacation in Thailand, or you were both working conservation in the Australian outback, why not find the original place of your meeting and schedule your honeymoon around there? You might be able to recreate and chart the path of your initial falling in love, which could be a lovely time if you last visited these areas years ago. It will show how much interpersonal progress you have made since then, and give you a beautiful way to cap off your story of coming together before you begin a new story with your marriage.
Somewhere With a Spectacle
Marriage is something to be celebrated. For that reason, why not go big during your honeymoon experience? Heading somewhere with a spectacle, such as staying at the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg and getting tickets to famous musicals in the city, or what about heading to the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Florida and geeking out with childish charm. Spectacle means different things to different people, and the draw of a place might depend on your tastes and what works for you.
If you both find a common interest, such as light gambling for example, heading to Las Vegas for a weekend full of hilarity, silliness and late night bar hopping could work for you. Plus, there are many spectacles to take in on The Vegas Strip. Every couple is different, but the idea of an adventure is often something that sounds wonderful for most people, and can push you outside of your comfort zone a little when deciding on a vacation to take.
Somewhere With Good Luck
If you’re the superstitious kind, it might be worthwhile heading somewhere bound to give you a blessing. It could be retracing your steps regarding the moment you asked him or her to marry you and basing the vacation around this, heading to your local religious area of significance, or maybe even heading on a goodwill tour through volunteering for the global good and spending your time together for a cause you both find worthwhile and absolutely engaging to be a part of.
We’re sure that with the right perspective, and with this guide to help you make that decision, your perfect vacation destination is right around the corner.
