8 Secrets for a Romantic
Honeymoon

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
        right time.

        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.
