Choosing a wedding venue, planning a party for dozens or maybe hundreds of people, preparing to share your life with another person are all huge stressors. Oh and did I mention dealing with the in-laws? Never mind, we won’t go there. Wow, does this sound like fun??
Maybe not, but what should be the embodiment of fun is your honeymoon. The honeymoon should be dedicated to relaxation and enjoyment. And restoring your energy!
Enjoy Your Honeymoon Before Life Gets In The Way
Keep your vision of the honeymoon in mind as you shop around for different venues and locations. Pay particular attention to the atmosphere of the venue. Does it complement your post-wedding vibe?
Additionally, the honeymoon should be a time of decompression. Likely, you’ve experienced months of stressful planning and coordination leading up to your big day; this is your opportunity just to sit back, relax and have no agenda (unless of course you want one!).
Also, remember, you are taking a lifelong journey with your partner, and your honeymoon should represent the first of many new and exciting memories.
