Did you know that the wedding blues are a thing? Some people call them a “wedding hangover.” They occur in the weeks and months after your wedding. Once the stress of planning a wedding has lifted, some couples don’t feel a relief. Instead, they feel that they are at a bit of a loss as they just don’t know what to do with themselves now that they don’t have anything to plan. Plus, you might have a very literal hangover from your wedding party that you need to deal with (but at least that shouldn’t last longer than a day!).

Don’t Delay With Your Honeymoon

Some couples wait for a while until they go on honeymoon. In fact, I’ve known some couples who have waited for a year or so to take their big vacation together! More often than not, this is down to financial reasons. But if you can afford to go right away, why wait? That way, you won’t have to sit around at home feeling sad that you no longer have a wedding to look forward to. Instead, you can sun yourself on a tropical beach with a fruity cocktail in hand!

Kendall and I are actually waiting on ours since he has to figure out his drill schedule and get a passport, but we’re at least going to take a mini-moon… maybe to OCMD or something like that. Just so we can get away and relax the week after our wedding.

Host A Party

If you want to keep the celebrations coming, you could always plan a party. If you were lucky to wed in a venue that hosts weddings and other functions, like Aqua Reception Hall, you might want to host a party at your wedding anniversary to mark your two-month anniversary. This may not be an official anniversary that most couples celebrate, but you can make it special and unique to the two of you. Anything to keep those blues away!

Do Couple Things

Now that you are a couple, why not start doing couple-y things together? You could take up a new hobby as a couple, such as playing tennis or going off on long hikes. Of course, your coupley things don’t have to always be active – you could simply enjoy more date nights in the cinema together! As long as you have a packed schedule, you won’t have time to worry about your wedding hangover.

Organize Your New Life Together

Of course, your new life together won’t always be fun. There will be quite a bit of admin that you will need to do, but at least this gives you something to keep you preoccupied with so that you can forget about your blues. You need to make your name change official if you are taking your husband’s surname. Once that is all done, you then need to let your bank and any other organizations know.

Think About Kids

You could always cure your wedding hangover by thinking about kids. After all, it’s usually the next step after getting married. So, why wait? You won’t feel too blue when you are trying to make a baby!

What’s the best way to follow up the perfect wedding? The perfect honeymoon, of course! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have the best holiday of your life with your new partner, and it’s probably something that you spend a lot of time thinking about during the planning process of your actual wedding. If you want to make it just as memorable as your wedding day, then how about choosing one of these exotic locations?

The Maldives

A honeymoon in the Maldives will make any of your friends green with envy. This remote location offers honeymooners some of the most beautiful golden beaches that are bordered by crystal-clear waters. It’s warm, there are plenty of luxurious resorts to indulge in and there are plenty of romantic locations to explore with your partner. There’s even an underwater restaurant in the Maldives that, while expensive, offers you an experience unlike any other on the planet. As you wine and dine with your partner, you’ll be surrounded by tropical aquatic life 5.8 meters beneath the surface of the ocean.

Kyoto, Japan

In comparison to the beaches and nightlife of the Maldives, Kyoto offers the complete opposite but still manages to be exotic in its own right. Rest and relax in this tranquil city with picturesque sights, iconic cherry blossom viewings and traditional teahouses. If you have any kind of interest in Japanese culture, then it doesn’t get much better than a honeymoon to Kyoto. It’s a refreshing sight compared to the hustle and bustle of city life, and there’s plenty of romantic locations to visit if you want some beautiful and memorable honeymoon photographs.

Machu Picchu Pueblo, Peru

Exotic means adventurous, and there are very few places on earth that offer the kind of excitement and adventure that Machu Picchu Pueblo offers. Though the name might sound strange or even silly, it’s one of the world’s great historical sites, making this one of those once-in-a-lifetime places that you have to visit before you retire. Hotels and food in the area are generally quite cheap despite offering plenty of luxuries. There’s a lot of trekking involved, so unless you’re ready to be on your feet for most of the day, you’ll probably want to take it easy in Peru. There’s so much wonder and charm to uncover in Machu Picchu Pueblo that you’ll leave feeling enlightened.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

When you want to go big, you go to Dubai. It offers some of the world’s most luxurious hotels and resorts, yet at the same time gives you access to wonderful beaches, desert tours and a wide range of delicious foods. With so much to see and do in Dubai, it might even feel surreal. It’s definitely one of the more exotic locations in the world to visit for a honeymoon. You’ll feel like royalty in most of the luxury hotel, yet you can get adventurous in the desert with camel rides and jeep tours.

You might have the white dress and the flowers all organized but what about finding the perfect honeymoon for your relationship? Most couples struggle when it comes to deciding where they should spend their first holiday after their wedding day. It is a tricky decision to take, as this is a holiday that has a huge cultural importance. Some even say that it completely defines how your marriage will be. Others speak of a symbolic importance only. Whatever you believe about it, there is a simple rule to follow about your honeymoon: It should match your personality. If you are not too sure what type of personality you have or how it could impact your honeymoon decision, have a look at a brilliant honeymoon quiz on https://destination-wedding-experts.com/honeymoon-quiz/. This takes a lot of your questions while giving you some precious ideas. It, however, doesn’t hold the key to the perfect honeymoon!

A Luxury Honeymoon

If you believe that your honeymoon is the time for self-indulgence, you may be looking for a luxury holiday. This could include reserving the newlywed suite and making sure that the hotel you pick fulfills all the necessary beauty spa requirements – yes, that includes a massage too. Do make sure that you are traveling in style if you need to travel, even if it is only from the airport to the hotel. After all, this is only once in a lifetime, so don’t hesitate to hire a limo service if you can. This beats public coaches anytime. Finally, ensure that you book in romantic, quality restaurants once you’re there. The best way to find them is to look for the closest Michelin recommendations or Michelin stars. If you can’t find any, ask at the hotel reception if they can recommend a place for you. After all, a honeymoon deserves only the very best.

An Adventurous Honeymoon

If you want to make the most of your honeymoon to start a new adventure together, then you should be looking for holiday packages that take you through stunning landscapes and extraordinary cultures, such as https://serendivus.com/sri-lanka-holiday-tour-packages/ in Sri Lanka. You could explore new horizons and see amazing wildlife like you’ve never seen it before. More importantly, you will be creating memories that will stay with you forever. For adventurous honeymoons, have a look at exciting activities in lesser known regions. However, do stay away from geographically remote locations, as these require a lot of attention to details to ensure that you will stay safe. Honeymoons are not renowned for being the time to be organized and cautious: They are a time of celebration.

A Blissfully Romantic Honeymoon

Finally, if you prefer a romantic getaway for the two of you during the first days of your marriage, you could look at cottage holidays to find your dream destinations. From hiring your private island for the two of you to finding an alpine cottage with a jacuzzi hidden in between the trees, there is something for every style. More importantly, there is somewhere a place for the two of you to take your first steps into the married life away from indiscreet eyes and everyday stress. There is no personal masseur, but there is a lot of love and a lot of time for both of you to enjoy your new life. After all, isn’t it what a honeymoon is about?

First things first, after the excitement of the proposal has died down, is to decide on your budget. Deciding how you’re going to spend the money you have available to create the day of your dreams is a bit more complex than just splitting it equally between everything. Of course, some things are more expensive than others, but you’ll also find things along the way that cost more than you might have initially budgeted for, so a little bit of “leftover” money on the budget never hurts either. Here are just a few things that you should never skimp on for your wedding day.

A-line wedding dress

The venue

There are a million different types and locations of venues for your to sift through and choose between, but ultimately your dream wedding should be in your dream venue, and the safety and comfort of your guests are of the utmost importance. Skimping on the venue could be so much worse than compromising on your dream – it could even be dangerous. If the venue you’ve fallen in love with is out of your budget, why not hold your wedding in winter, or midweek, to cut the costs?

The food

You can’t have a great party without great food, that’s for sure. You want to make sure your nearest and dearest are well fed and fueled for dancing the night away, so be sure not to skimp on the caterer. You don’t have to go for the traditional sit-down, three-course meal if you prefer not to. These days all sorts of weird and wonderful wedding catering options are becoming popular, so be sure to shop around.

The photographs

You will want to look back on your big day with a fondness for the rest of your lives, so having the memories captured professionally is crucial. When you’re hiring a photographer, it’s important to speak to them about their experience, look through their portfolio, and discuss any special arrangements before you make any final agreement. Same thing goes if you choose to have a videographer there to capture your big day too.

Your style

Your dress, hair, and makeup are crucial for making sure you feel and look incredible. Don’t spend the night before the big day panicking about doing your own hair and makeup – leave it to the professionals. They’ll be able to make you look a million dollars, but they’re also pros at creating a look that won’t melt off your face at the first sign of a tear – definitely worth the money.

Your honeymoon

This is the time for you and your new spouse to bond, enjoy each other’s company, and wind down after the stress of wedding planning for months on end. Spending a bit of money on the honeymoon guarantees you the perfect, romantic getaway – it has to be the trip of a lifetime after all.

Most importantly, don’t skimp on anything you don’t want to. Everyone has different priorities when it comes to their big day, so if something is important to you and it fits within your budget, splurge on it if you want to – it’s your day!

A romantic getaway is a little bit different to any other require – it’s a time for the two of you to kick back and relax, but also to get closer, reacquaint yourselves with each other, and have a good giggle. For this reason alone, a romantic getaway needs to have a few luxurious elements that any other vacation might not require. Yes, it might cost a little bit more, but you both totally deserve it. If you’ve got a romantic getaway on the horizon, consider adding one or two of these elements for the ultimate couple’s relaxation vacation.

Book the honeymoon suite

Even if it’s not your honeymoon, if you can afford it, why not? There is no other room in the hotel more geared towards romance and intimacy, so you might as well go for it. And if it’s been a few years since your honeymoon, why not relive it in style?

Travel in style

Traveling from the airport to your hotel, and even around the area in which you’re vacationing, can be quite stressful without car hire, particularly if you choose to travel by public transport. Why not, for a treat, hire a limo service to give you the luxury travel you deserve? You’ll never have to worry about getting from A to B, and you’ll feel like royalty.

Watch the sun rise and set

If you can deal with the early rise, seeing the sun rise over your island, the beach, or the city can be really stunning, and thoroughly romantic. If you’ve had a heavy night the night before, or you’re just not morning people, then the sunset also works. Lazing on the beach with a cocktail after a hard day of relaxation with the person you love is the ultimate unforgettable luxury.

Take a couple’s massage

We all need some of the stress of everyday life working out of our shoulders, and a day in the spa is by far the best way to feel pampered and relaxed. A couple’s massage is a great time to relax and bond together, while someone works out all the kinks and knots in your shoulders. Check out what treatments your spa offers, or look further afield at some of the other spas in the area. You both deserve it.

Seek out the romantic restaurants

A candlelit meal is the ultimate romantic experience, and a vacation is the best way to find a tucked away taverna with the best food on the island. Sharing a bottle of local wine and some delicious food is amazing, but when you add a touch of luxury you’ve got one of the most intimate and unforgettable experience, so make sure you do your research before you set off.

Keep a scrapbook

Keeping your memories safe after a lovely holiday is really important, and being able to look back on them fondly in years to come is amazing too. Keep the tickets and receipts for everything you do, everywhere you visit, and every romantic meal you share, and put them all into a scrapbook to look back on with fondness.

A romantic getaway only needs the two of you to be amazing, but when you add a touch of luxury, you can create something really special.
