7 Most Ideal Ways to Plan Your Honeymoon: a guest post by Rebecca Siggers

7 Most Ideal Ways to Plan Your Honeymoon

 

There is no better way to spend quality time with your spouse than going on your honeymoon. It is also the only place where you get to reboot and refresh yourself after the stress you have had the past couple of days. You should, however, keep in mind that the only way you will have a great time on your honeymoon is if you plan it well. Here are the seven most ideal approaches to prepare for your honeymoon.

Start planning early

The only way you are going to have an incredible experience is if you start planning your honeymoon months before the due date. That trick is going to help you put everything in place. You also get to have plenty of time making choices and changing reservations if you wish. Saving for your honeymoon also requires you and your spouse to start early. The best honeymoon is one where money doesn’t limit you. It should be something extraordinary that makes you forget about everything else and instead enjoy every moment. That can only happen if you plan early.

Communicate with people

Communication is not the only key to your relationship, but also one of the best ways to ensure you have a remarkable honeymoon. One of the main tips to plan for your honeymoon and make it memorable is to communicate. Don’t book a hotel and assume that you are going to get it all in place. Inform the management that you are newlyweds, confirm what you think might be missing, and ensure they have everything you have on your checklist. Some hotels tend to reserve special rooms for newlyweds to enhance your experience.

Confirm you have your travel documents ready

You might have been too busy planning your wedding that you forget to renew your passport and other travel documents. It is thus essential that you have every travel document ready. These include a travel visa as well as passports. Some countries require you to have certain vaccines before you enter. So do all the research and obtain documents to show you have got the required vaccines. Without travel documents, you may miss your honeymoon, or you may have to go to a local destination. So don’t ruin your honeymoon simply because you did not confirm if you have all the right travel documents.

Watch out for special bonuses

Most companies tend to offer exclusive bonuses to newlyweds. That is why you need to communicate, as indicated earlier. You should also take advantage of planning earlier and start looking out for special bonuses. These may be free drinks if you spend a certain amount at the restaurant or free dessert for couples on their honeymoon. Something about special bonuses is that they always help you stay within your spending margin while having a great experience.

Opt for privacy and not popularity

There are so many fancy places where you can go for your honeymoon and have a great time. But then you need to ask yourself, is the destination private? If yes, then you should proceed. An excellent honeymoon does not require a popular place crawling with people from all walks of life. It instead requires a private and calm place. Somewhere romantic with delicious foods, mouthwatering desserts, and incredible drinks such as Andre champagne. The location should also be quiet with outstanding services. You don’t want to ruin your honeymoon by going to a popular but crowded place where people don’t give you room to enjoy the company of one another.

Come up with an itinerary

The easiest and hardest thing to do is to develop a perfect schedule. You need to come up with a schedule which you are going to stick to. Know which places you plan to visit and for how long. You need to balance between adventure and relaxation for you to have a super lovely honeymoon. The itinerary is also going to ensure that you do or visit every place you have in mind. For as long as you are on your honeymoon, you need to be time conscious.

Pack accordingly

Not everyone knows how to pack efficiently. Your honeymoon doesn’t require you to pack too much, but just enough to ensure you have something suitable for every occasion. You need to ensure that you pack light so that you don’t have a hard time maneuvering the streets in your destination. It is one of the ideal ways to plan for your honeymoon. Know the weather on the other end, and use it to plan your outfits.

Those are so far some of the ideal ways to prepare for your honeymoon. This information will help you make the right decision and end up with a memorable honeymoon. Remember to confirm and compare everything from the means of transport you want to use to the hotel you are planning to stay. Doing so will ensure you have no regrets whatsoever.

Such great tips!

Planning A Wedding – The Right Way: a guest post by Dora Potter

Planning A Wedding

– The Right Way

 

It would not be wrong to say that a wedding changes your life completely. We cannot live the same breath as we used to before our wedding. That is why the wedding day is probably the most essential in a person’s life. It is very crucial to keep this day memorable so that we always remember this day in the right words.

To do that, we have to plan our wedding in such a way that people love it, and at the same time, your wallet is not hurt.

Hence, get ready to prepare a wedding bouquet as we will show you step by step how to plan a perfect wedding. Make sure you read the full article.

STEPS TO PLAN YOUR WEDDING DAY:

The wedding should be the biggest party that you are ever going to throw. Hence, here we will help you out in planning your biggest day. Please read all the steps. The steps are…

  1.     Plan a budget.

Sit with your elder ones & set a wedding budget. Make a particular figure that you can spend on your wedding. While planning a budget, don’t be a miser as well as don’t waste money on useless things. Plan a balanced budget and make your day the most memorable day of your life.

  1.     Get unique ideas.

This step can make your wedding a unique one. Search on the internet and find out the ways through which you can plan your wedding. You can get inspiration from weddings on any known celebrities. You can also plan your wedding by getting ideas from Instagram or any other social media.

  1.     Create a guest list.

Now again, this point is essential. You should know who and what type of people are coming to your wedding. If you know how many people are coming only, then you will be able to select a suitable venue as well as prepare a proper meal. Without knowing the number of people coming, your wedding will be ruined completely. Hence, create a list and invite only those who are mentioned in that list.

  1.     Select a venue.

After you have prepared a balanced budget, you will know what type of venue you should choose. Choose a venue according to the number of people you have invited. While selecting a venue, make sure you pick dates that are suitable for every guest. It is recommended to choose dates which are of holidays because on such days everyone is available. You can find many venues easily online.

  1.     Create a wedding website.

It seems odd, but this is the best way to keep your relatives and guests in touch. When you have a wedding website, you will be able to put all the information on that website. The information can be timing, venue, dress code, et cetera. In this way, you will not have to call each guest to inform him/her about the changes that you made in initial plans, but you can put that on your website, and your guest will know about it.

  1.     Book vendors.

Vendors are the ones who manage your whole wedding ceremony. It is good to book as many vendors as possible. These vendors will help you out in any way possible. On average, people usually book thirteen to fifteen vendors for each ceremony. Vendors are professionals in their field, and they will make your wedding day a perfect day.

  1.     Purchase attire.

For men, don’t rush while selecting perfect attire. Give yourself time to choose what is best for the best day. Make sure you look better than any other guy on your wedding day. You need to be the MVP of that day & your attire is the only thing that will make you MVP. Hence, make sure to spend the right amount of time in this step.

  1.     Finalize the meal.

Whether it is lunch or dinner, decide this as soon as possible. Make a rough list of meals and show them to catering agencies. The number of meals should be according to the number of guests.

  1.     Plan your honeymoon.

Don’t wait till the wedding ends, or you will never be able to plan your honeymoon. Set up your honeymoon with the wedding plan. It is good to go on a honeymoon right after the wedding. Plan your honeymoon destinations, reserve hotels, and book tickets.

  1. Enjoy Pre-Wedding events.

There are many events that you can enjoy before the primary wedding day. In our culture, we usually celebrate a bridal shower, bachelor party, and many more. Make sure you attend all of these events as a guest of honor.

  1. Get the marriage license.

Now, this is the most crucial step in the whole guide. If you want to marry legally, then attend to the matter of a marriage license. Every country and every state has different laws in this regard. Make sure to read all these laws before applying for the marriage license. In some states, a marriage license takes some time. So, ask for it before planning venues and everything.

  1. Get married!

After all this hard work, enjoy your day and get married. Make your day a memorable day for all. Do everything in your power to make your wedding day the best day of your life.

Keep so many surprises for your partner on the wedding day to impress her. On the wedding day, make sure to kiss your partner in such a way that you never did before.

CONCLUSION

For many people, a wedding day comes only once in life. Live this day and forget everything about the past and future. After you have married, love your partner with the love she deserves. Do everything in your power to keep her happy.

Give her surprises, give her gifts, help her in her work, and be there when she needs you to be there. Be a partner that she wants you to be. In any unwanted situation, understand her feelings and don’t get angry.

If you do all of these, your life will be the happiest.

How to Survive Holiday Stress With Your Sweetie: a guest post by Dating Connections

How to Survive Holiday Stress with Your Sweetie

 

The Christmas craze is upon us and as much as ladies love to shop till they drop with the greatest excuse of them all (it’s Christmas!), their partners are usually the ones getting the short end of the stick as a gift. Between bringing home half of Pottery Barn’s Christmas collection to capture the holiday spirit, not leaving an ounce of it for anyone else on the planet, and going all out this year in terms of gifts for family, friends, acquaintances, co-workers, neighbors, and various charity organizations, it’s no wonder your partner can feel left out as you two face the stress of the holiday season.

Let’s take a moment to reflect on an extremely important fact of life here – men don’t care for gifts.

Created by Freepik

They want to have a nice dinner with their ladies over a bottle of wine and some Star Trek (choice of movie optional). They don’t care for shopping, home decor, expensive wrapping paper or Christmas cards, no matter how cute, inspirational or uplifting you may find the latest celebrity snapchats – the holiday edition! With this painful truth in mind, we present the top ways to give your man what he really wants this Christmas season without having to spend a cent on stress relief programs for yourself.

Shower Him with Affection

Your man wants you all year long, and doesn’t care what season it is. Although you’d rather go see that latest museum exhibit only in town until mid-December between picking your company Christmas party dress and getting your hair done before the actual holiday craze even begins, he’d rather lounge around the house with you and lay low until it all passes.

Keep that in mind the next time you are faced with a tough decision whether to get him that sweater in navy blue or brown. Also, you can use these simple expectations to loosen up and relax with your man after an action-packed day, and get the best of both worlds.

Lingerie As A Gift For Him

If you absolutely must shop, buy yourself sexy new lingerie. He already has a closet full of dress shirts you keep buying that he never wears. But if you surprise him with a cute little hot pink number you’ll find yourself in a win-win kind of situation – you get to shop, and he gets to enjoy it.

When picking new bras, busties, thongs, or babydolls, keep in mind the things he likes in terms of color, shape, and size. Surprise him by showing how much you’re thinking about his needs and desires, not by getting him tickets to the Christmas ballet show. Following your successful choice of sexy lingerie that he’ll absolutely love, you won’t feel guilty about scheduling that pricey yet much needed appointment at your favorite salon that will ensure you get a stress-free and fulfilling holiday season, too.

Stay Active Throughout The Holiday Season

Regular exercise not only reduces the risk of various physical health problems, but it also puts your mind at ease by reducing the effects of depression, anxiety, stress, and a host of other mental health issues.

Find the time to decompress at the gym at least 3 times a week as this will help you unwind, lower your stress levels, and spend actual quality time with your partner later in the day. Stretching at home or during your lunch break can also boost your “happy hormones”, and increase your productivity so that you are free to go catch a movie or go for a walk with him, and forget all about the holiday stress.

Don’t Make Him Get Involved

If a man can’t get what he wants, the second best thing that could happen is for him to be left alone. Don’t make him go with you to pick your mom’s present or ask his opinion on every little thing you bring into the house because that is just completely pointless. He doesn’t have an opinion on it, and even if he did, it would be a man’s opinion, which in all likelihood would be contrary to yours. Show you love him by letting him be, and he will be eternally grateful.

While you’re at it, enlist the help of your friends, and have yourself a great girl’s night out to talk about all things Christmas and men over some wine and great music. You’ll feel amazing afterwards, and your partner will be happy for you both.

Definitely some food for thought here. These are great tips for staying connected with our partners, and keeping the Christmas hustle and bustle from driving us crazy.
