AFTER THE WEDDING THE planning of a honeymoon is one of the ...
AFTER THE WEDDING THE planning of a honeymoon is one of the most pleasant tasks of all the wedding arrangements. Obviously this should be decided well in advance of the ceremony. Last-minute bookings and haphazard holidays are likely to be especially unsatisfactory as honeymoons, presenting particular problems with regard to suitable dates and accommodation. As your wedding approaches, you may be asking yourselves, why have a honeymoon? After all, a honeymoon is not cheap, it takes you away from your life, friends and family, and it involves planning, just at the time when you are probably already overwhelmed by wedding.
It is no surprise that some couples decide against having a honeymoon, or at least to delay it. The choice of a honeymoon resort obviously depends on the tastes and means of the couple concerned. However all newly married couples have one desire in common, to be, as far as possible, on their own. For this reason, temptingly cheap though it may seem, the 'packaged deal' holiday, where inevitably travellers tend to be thrown into each other's company, is not really the most satisfactory, even though it may offer a unique opportunity to see far-away and romantic places that both have long longed to see.
It may be better in such cases to settle for a quiet weekend in an English resort as the immediate follow-up to the wedding - or even to return to the new home immediately after the reception and use the money that might have been spent on the honeymoon for a really good holiday as man and wife / partner the next summer. It is obviously easier today to make this type of long-term planning.
