Technically a post-wedding tradition, the importance of the honeymoon in relation to the wedding itself cannot be undermined. If you type ‘honeymoon destinations’ into google images, up pop glorious images of the Maldives, Venice, Barbados and remote island beaches. When saturated with exotic international destinations, it’s easy to get distracted from what the main purpose of a honeymoon is. Which in reality it is to recover and review the wedding itself!
Ok, yes, a honeymoon is also a glorified holiday, put it’s probably the most important holiday you will ever take in your lives. It doesn’t have to be a castle in Austria, a cruise around the Seychelles or even endless candle-lit dinners in Santorini. But, like your wedding rings, this time is a lifetime investment – it is a time you don’t get back or get again, so is really worth treating yourselves. Be kind to yourselves and to each other in the aftermath of your wedding day and get away (far away if possible) from it all for as long as you can afford.
