Today, part seven of our eight-part series, A Guy’s Guide to Getting Hitched.
It may be most fun part of wedding planning: your honeymoon. Plan it right, and you’ll have a lifetime of memories. Screw it up, and you’ll hear about it for decades. How to make the most of your ‘moon.
Jetting off the morning after your wedding might sound romantic, but the reality might not be if you’re exhausted or antsy to get back to work. Pick a time when you can truly relax.
Don’t write off all-inclusive.
It’s not all mediocre buffets and watered-down drinks; an all-inclusive deal at a high-end resort can save you dough and the stress of planning.
Make room for down time.
Virgin brides may have gone the way of the dodo, but honeymoon sex should still be special – and plentiful. Don’t hang-glide and snorkel yourselves to exhaustion.
This is a once in a lifetime occasion; it should be a once-in-a-lifetime, or at least first-in-a-lifetime, destination. Go somewhere new to both of you.
Forgo the fine china and put your honeymoon on your registry using a service like this one. Exotic cocktails taste all the sweeter when someone else has paid for them.
March to your own beat.
Don’t get caught up with honeymoon conventions. If a sunset dinner on the beach sounds like a bore, then skip it. Similarly, if mountain biking is your idea of a hot date, then go for it. Romance comes in many forms.
