When Should You Go on Your Honeymoon?

Posted on April 08 2019

You've dreamt of this moment for a very long time, the proposal was romantic and captured beautifully through pictures for lasting memories. Now you're happily engaged and in the throes of planning your wedding. The date has been picked, your dream venue reserved, save the dates sent out, and the perfect wedding dress is chosen. Now it's time to allocate attention to the honeymoon! Many couples focus so much on the actual wedding, that they forget the honeymoon is just as important. Declaring your everlasting love and dedicating your lives to each other in front of your family and friends is a sacred experience for both the couple and the attendees. However, let's not forget about the importance of your honeymoon

Why Is a Honeymoon Important?

The way in which couples view honeymoons varies. Some believe in sticking with tradition and taking a romantic honeymoon immediatelyafter the wedding. Others believe they should wait to take their honeymoon until they settle in some, and still, others do not want to take a honeymoon at all and believe the money would be better spent on other expenses. 

When Should You Take Your Honeymoon?

Even though many couples decide to break with tradition, it is a tradition for a reason. The best time to take your honeymoon is immediately after saying "I do"!  Planning your wedding, saying your vows, and dancing the evening away at your reception is a very special celebration of your marriage that will only happen once. That surreal feeling will dissipate even a week after the wedding. Instead of entering straight into the normal day-to-day life, capitalize on the feeling. 

A Celebration for Two!

As the wedding gets closer, there will be fewer opportunities for the two of you to spend time together. Family and friends will begin to arrive for the big day and there will be last minute details to attend to. Your wedding is a celebration with friends and family, but your honeymoon is your opportunity to celebrate, just the two of you! 

For the very first time, you are able to call each other husband and wife! If you're the blushing bride, you finally get to use your new last name. Let's not forget about checking into your hotel and having the receptionist call you Mr. & Mrs. for the first time! These fun little moments only happen for the first time once! This is an exciting time as newlyweds and only lasts for a little while after the wedding. Take the time to enjoy these moments before heading back to the work and the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life  

Much Needed Relaxation

Planning a wedding takes a lot of time and can be very stressful! The two of you will need some time to unwind and relax. Taking your honeymoon right after your wedding allows you to decompress, relax, and transition into married life as smoothly as possible while recharging your batteries.
