Saturday, June 13th, 2009

For the newlyweds couple their honeymoon should be the most second most memorable event of their new life together right after their wedding. And after all the craziness that a wedding involves picking the best honeymoon destination is very important. It is important to remember that this may well be the happy couple first real extended time away from their everyday life and should be a time of romance, relaxation and of course loads of fun. There are so many choices available for the perfect honeymoon destination that it may to prospective newlyweds. You want this trip to be filled with happy, and loving memories that will last a lifetime. The wrong honeymoon destination could be a huge disappointment. By choosing the right honeymoon destination they will be sure to remember this time of their lives together with fond memories.

The first thing couples must decide is when to take their honeymoon. Years ago most people went immediately after the wedding, sometimes leaving on the same night! These days more and more couples are opting to wait a few months before taking their trip. After all the wedding fun and planning many people feel the post-wedding blues so postponing your honeymoon leaves something to look forward to. Many people will go away to a private bed and breakfast or for a short weekend getaway so they can enjoy a “mini-moon” right after the wedding.

Before you choose a destination for your honeymoon, decide how much time you can take. If it is only going to be a week then discount faraway places like Europe or Asia. You’ll end up being jet-lagged at both ends, leaving little time to enjoy your destination. Remember also that you’ll be losing at least two of your days to travel. The Caribbean is an excellent choice if you are taking a week-long honeymoon. There are a number of islands to choose from, and most of them offer great package deals. You can stay at an all-inclusive luxury resort, where you will enjoy food, drinks, and entertainment for a good price. If you want to enjoy sunny beaches and each other’s company, the Caribbean might be just the right spot. It is great in the winter months as well.

If lying in the sun is not your idea of a good time, there are plenty of great honeymoon destinations in North America. Consider one of the many resort type towns that offer plenty of outdoor activities. Banff, Alberta is a unique resort town in the middle of the Rockies. If you ski or snowboard you and your sweetie will enjoy the fantastic hills in this area. Banff is a winter paradise, with plenty to do, and a town that is full of unique shops. If you prefer not to travel far, find a cozy bed and breakfast near your home. Many offer spa packages, including massage and other pampering. A getaway such as this is a super way to relax and enjoy one another’s company. If you are fortunate enough to have two or more weeks for your honeymoon, the destination possibilities will seem endless. Currently the South Pacific is very popular. The weather is great all year and you can find luxury resorts to treat you like royalty.

With all of these choices available, you and your future spouse need to spend some time deciding what you most want from your honeymoon. Sitting down with a stack of travel brochures will be almost as much fun as the trip itself. Make the right choice, and you’ll create a most memorable experience. If you have a shortlist of possible destination that fits your budget, the next you should do is identify what places offer the best accommodation, amenities, services, sights, luxury, and comfort among others. Then, choose one that is right for both of you. Keep in mind that the place should not necessarily be the least expensive; it should be the place where you will be able to enjoy and have fun together.
