8 Secrets for a Romantic
Romance is the ultimate goal of any great honeymoon; but a
romantic honeymoon can look dramatically different from one couple to the next.
Some couples prefer lying on the beach sipping cocktails together while others
prefer sightseeing through European cities side by side. No matter what your
honeymoon preferences, Honeymoon Pixie's eight secrets will help make your honeymoon even
more romantic and memorable:
Set up a honeymoon registry
This best kept secret for a romantic honeymoon is now becoming
well-known among engaged couples. By
using a honeymoon registry, couples can opt to have
the experiences associated with their dream honeymoon as a viable alternative
to traditional wedding gifts. These honeymoon gift activities can raise the bar
for anyone’s definition of “romance”. A couple’s
honeymoon registry can include a romantic candlelit dinner, a couple’s massage,
a swim with dolphins, a honeymoon suite upgrade, or a chilled bottle of Champaign
and chocolates in bed!
Choose the right location for you
The key to having a truly romantic honeymoon is to choose
the right honeymoon destination for the two of you – rather than simply
choosing a tropical beach because that's what most people seem to do. Think
about the times you feel most connected to your fiancé, whether that's when experiencing
new adventures together, snuggling in a luxurious bed, exploring a new city, or
simply relaxing. Then, choose a honeymoon destination that will allow you to
experience those things together.
Plan some little gifts
You can enhance the intimacy and romantic connection on your
honeymoon by planning gifts for your new spouse. Pack little secret presents
for every day of the honeymoon and present them to your new spouse at just the
Tell people you're on your honeymoon
One of the least-known ways to make your honeymoon more
romantic is to tell other people on your honeymoon. It can get you discounts,
upgrades, or maybe a table with a better view at a seaside restaurant. If you
want romantic honeymoon upgrades from your hotel, pack a copy of your new
marriage license to verify that you really are on your honeymoon.
Bring your own romantic items
Don't expect your hotel or destination to provide you with
all the romance you'll want on your honeymoon. Instead, bring some of your own
romantic items, such as tealight candles, your favorite music, bubble bath,
massage oil, and new lingerie.
Book a room with a Jacuzzi
There's nothing more romantic than relaxing together in a
dimly-lit, luxurious bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub for two. It's more romantic
than a hot tub at a resort pool because it's private.
Enjoy breakfast in bed
Splurge on room service at least once or twice on your
honeymoon. Breakfast in bed gives you time to wake up slowly, making your whole
day feel less rushed and more romantic. Depending on what you enjoy, you can
even bring a board game to play or a movie to watch while you enjoy your
luxurious breakfast in the comfort of your room.
Tell your spouse why you love him/her
Telling someone about all the reasons you love him or her is
possibly one of the most romantic gestures there is. Before your honeymoon,
spend time making a list of the reasons you love your fiancé. Then, on your
honeymoon, present this list of reasons in a creative way – as a scrapbook, on
strips of paper you leave around the room, or just in a list form that you can
read during a romantic dinner together.
