When the wedding is over - after the music, the food, and the celebrating with your family and friends dim to memory, it's time to start the honeymoon. After you've given those Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Bracelets with Engraved Monogram Charm to your bridesmaids and a Moon Shadow Jewelry Set, like the set you were wearing during your ceremony, to your maid of honor - after all the details that make up your wedding day are complete, it's time to begin what should be the trip of a lifetime - your honeymoon.
Oh, no doubt you'll take other trips on which you may have more money to burn and perhaps even more time to travel, but your honeymoon is a trip you will remember long after the other's have faded from your memories. That's just the way it is. So enjoy it. Make the most of it.
Making the most of your honeymoon opportunities means taking a little time to dream and research the possibilities. Yes, you could let your husband to be take care of all those details like once was the practice, but for the same reason that you worked to get him involved in the decision making process of planning your wedding you should be involved in the process of planning your honeymoon.
What is that reason? Simple. It's your honeymoon. Both of you are going to look back on the wedding and the honeymoon as something "we" did, so make the planning of your honeymoon something "we" do too!
What sounds good to you? When you think of your honeymoon what comes to mind? White sandy beaches? Eating seafood on a deck overlooking the clear aqua blue waters of the sea while the warm salty breeze filters through your hair? Perhaps you think of lush tropical foliage on a hillside overlooking the sea. If so, perhaps a Caribbean honeymoon package is for you!
Imagine long lazy days in your honeymoon beach front resort sitting on a beach in the Bahamas listening to the waves with the one you love at your side. Imagine strolling hand in hand through the Jamaican marketplace while listening to local music before heading back to your all inclusive Caribbean honeymoon resort. Imagine capturing a glimpse of a dive to recover sunken pirate's treasure. Imagine the adventure of exploring a culture so different from our own, yet strikingly similar too. Imagine sharing all of these experiences with the person you love most in the world.
That's a honeymoon.
Perhaps you would prefer to spend your honeymoon exploring the exquisitely manicured grounds of Parc des Floralies or the Morne Rogue Cathedral, both of which are just a small sampling of the rich history of culture and beauty that is Martinique - and we've only touched on a few of the many islands of the Caribbean for you and your new husband to spend your honeymoon exploring and, more importantly, building honeymoon memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.
