Luxury Honeymoon Ideas for Your Post-Pandemic Marriage
If you’re getting married soon or perhaps you got married before the pandemic and it ruined your honeymoon plans then with things starting to open up more you will want to start looking into options. It can be difficult to think about what to do for your honeymoon especially if you’re not sure what things will be like post-pandemic so we have put together some options and ideas for you, to help give you some inspiration.
One thing to think about is whether or not you want to travel abroad for your honeymoon or if you want to look at options within the UK. There are plenty of luxurious things you can do within the UK if you choose to stay here rather than travelling abroad. Obviously for many people they imagine a honeymoon involves travelling abroad to a hot and romantic destination such as a Caribbean island, but it’s important to remember that it is about spending time with your partner, not the duration that you are on a flight for. You may just need to think creatively and look at alternative options if flying isn’t an option for you. The restrictions that are in place for some countries might mean that it’s ruined your plans for a holiday with the added cost and pressure of quarantining on your return, or the price for Covid tests, so if you don’t want to have this hanging over your honeymoon you could look at organizing something more local.
Relaxing or active
One important thing that you will need to think about is whether or not you want to have a relaxing or active honeymoon. If you are wanting to have a relaxing honeymoon you could look for hotels that have spas, or just somewhere nice and warm on a beach, where you can relax with a cocktail. If you’re looking for an active honeymoon then there are lots of companies that specialize in finding and booking these types of holidays for you.
Luxury hotel and spa
If you are looking to stay within the UK you could look at organizing a honeymoon at a luxury hotel and spa. There are plenty of venues that you can choose to stay in depending on what area of the UK you are looking to visit. After the year that many people have had it would be a lovely idea to have a staycation in the UK and just enjoy some time together, just the two of you. There are lots of really lovely locations such as a wood cabin in a forest or a tree house, or a modern apartment on a beachfront.
Many luxury hotels in the UK have luxurious spas on site so you could both enjoy either some treatments or a full day of pampering together. Some venues also offer a honeymoon package that allows you to pamper each other and give each other a mud treatment.
Hire a campervan and travel
If you both enjoy the outdoors and camping then a really romantic idea would be to hire a campervan and go and explore the UK. There are some beautiful places that you can visit and this adventure would be a really romantic way to start your lives together as a married couple. You could buy a scrap book and put together lots of photographs of your holiday. If you want to make it more glamorous you could look at glamping places around the UK, these locations offer luxury camping accommodation rather than putting up a tent in a field!
Luxury honeymoon locations
Your honeymoon will be something that you will remember forever so it’s important that you do something that you love and something that is a once in a lifetime experience. If you are really not sure where to start you could look at booking something through a travel agency that deals with luxury honeymoons. They will take the stress out of the planning for you and make sure that the destination you find is somewhere really special.
Whatever option you decide to do it is important that you look at your honeymoon budget and make sure that you keep this money separate from your wedding budget. Try not to spend everything on your wedding as you will want to have a honeymoon that is memorable.
