One of the best parts of any wedding is going on your honeymoon; it's your chance to relax after the hectic wedding planning and intense day of the ceremony. It's also a time for you, as a couple, to really spend some quality time with each other.
No matter your time limit or budget, there are honeymoon packages to suit every taste, whether your idea is quiet relaxation or exciting adventures.
All-Inclusive Beach Honeymoons
There are a number of specialized hotel chains that offer all inclusive trips to destinations near and far. All-inclusive means exactly that, you won't have to fish out your wallet for anything during your stay. Included in your room charge are all meals, drinks (including spirits), water and land activities and side tours, and gratuities. Taking advantage of all inclusive resort offers can not only help you budget ahead of time, but also prevent the impulse to overspend at this exciting time of your life.
The Large Hotel Chains
While not offering all-inclusive packages, many of the larger hotel chains offer special honeymoon packages which include romantic extras, from rose-strewn baths to champagne and strawberries upon arrival. Some packages include tickets to local events like sold out sporting events and plays, or spa treatments for two. One of the good things about these packages is that they are generally available chain wide, so whether you want to take your special time on the other side of the planet or in your own city, these packages may be for you.
Exotic and Adventure Honeymoons
If adventure is your couple thing, check out the packages available to combine your honeymoon with a bucket list-type of trip. Photo safaris in five star lodges in Africa, white water rafting in New Zealand, over-water bungalows in the South Pacific, or a romantic train journey through the capitals of Europe or the former palaces of India are all available. As with the hotel packages previously described, many of these prepackaged adventures include special honeymoon perks and upgrades from better rooms to romantic greetings. Some resorts specialize in conducting wedding ceremonies on a beach following local customs with native music, if you want to combine your rite observation and honeymoon all in one.
The Staycation Honeymoon
If budget or time is limited, contact your local hotels for honeymoon packages. They are happy to have business from local residents and often have special deals for honeymoons that might include exclusive reservations for your city's hottest restaurants or in-room couples spa treatments.
There are honeymoon packages for every taste and budget, and it won't require much effort to find something perfectly suited to you and your new spouse!
