A honeymoon is "a month of sweetness." It involves your first days as husband and wife, a delightful vacation together, and the beginnings of adjustment to married life. In my thinking, it really ought to be a month long, even if the honeymoon trip can only be for three or four days. If you have to return to "real life" sooner than you would like, why not just continue your honeymoon at home (in the hours you are not at work, of course)? Spend lots of time together, relax, and play the tourist right where you are!
But you likely do want to go away somewhere. . . for as long as possible!
Some things to consider as you plan your honeymoon
- How much time do you have to plan (how soon is the wedding date)?
- How much money do you have?
- How much time can you spend away from home?
- What time of year will the honeymoon be?
- Do you have any particular desire to or desire not to go out of the country?
- Do you want to or not want to travel by plane, train, car?
- Where do you think you would like to go?
- What do you want to do while you are there?
- Where do you definitely not want to go?
- What do you definitely not want to do?
- Do you have the stuff you need to carry out a trip such as you plan (or the money to buy it), such as luggage, a car fit for long distance travel, camping equipment, etc.
Be sure to not only answer these questions yourself, but to also ask them of your fiancee.
