5 Tips For A Romantic and Relaxing Honeymoon

You’re planning your wedding, Congraulations!

There’s so much planning and organising in the lead up to the wedding day, you deserve to book yourselves a wonderful relaxing and romantic holiday to celebrate finally tying the knot! Each couple has a different idea of what their perfect honeymoon is, but we’re here to give you some tips on how to make sure it’s a romantic one to remember.

  1. Book a destination you haven’t visited before 
    This makes the destination special to you as a couple and you can explore and learn the new environment together. It will always be the location you first visited as newly-weds and hold a special place for the two of you. The Maldives, for example, is a beautiful location to visit with resorts perfect for honeymooning. The Anantara Veli Resort in the Maldives have partnered with Bridal Expos Australia to offer Bridal & Wedding Expo attendees a chance to win a 3 night stay in an over-water bungalow.
  2. Book an adults-only resort
    Depending on what you want out of a honeymoon, sometimes the most relaxing are those spent away from children. Kids are fantastic for fun-filled and high energy family holidays, but as kids generally like to be entertained and busy doing fun activitites a lot of the time, these may make for less relaxing holidays. You’ll have the opportunity to spend quality time together and ensure there is no one splashing, jumping or screaming in the pool beside you at an adults-only resort.
  3. Make time for pampering and relaxation
    Book a massage one, twice, or every day of your holiday if you must! Make sure all the tension and stress from wedding planning is completely gone, and you’ve got the best start to being a happily married couple when returning home. Make sure there’s days spent doing nothing but sitting by the pool and sipping away on cocktails. Perhaps you could try yoga and meditation which is a great way to clear your mind and relax with your partner.
  4. Book some fun activities together
    Research where you are going and what could be some memorable events or activitites you can book and share together.
    Maybe try surfing? Collect some equipment and go diving or snorkelling? Book a sporting court at the resort and have a friendly game of tennis?
    If you’re staying in a new country, a traditional cooking class might be lots of fun and can give you some new tastes or cooking ideas to try back home.
    Book into a resort that has a wide range of activities so there’s sure to be something to keep both partners happy.The Anantara Veli Maldives Resort offers a great range of activities, including tennis, yoga, meditation, cooking activities, water skiing, wakeboarding, knee boarding, jet-skiing, flyboarding, sailing, parasailing, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking, cruises, day spa, dolphin watching cruises, private excursions, fishing, snorkelling, scuba diving and more!
  5. Have a healthy budget for your holiday
    Make sure you’ve got a healthy honeymoon-budget for while you’re away. You want to be focusing on one another and  not worrying about every dollar spent and how you’re budget is looking for the remainder of the trip. A wishing well at your wedding can help to provide a cash-infusion into your honeymoon and without worrying about your wallet, the whole honeymoon will have much more relaxed feel.

Planning a honeymoon is about having the best time possible with the person you love. Your idea of a relaxing holiday may be a little different to the above, but we hope you have a magnificent honeymoon!
