Although the term “honeymoon” only goes back to the mid 16th century, most cultures over much of historical time have had something like it. Usually, there has been a period of time after the joining (marriage) of a couple, when the couple withdraws and spends time with only each other. Sociologists, psychologists and anthropologists have been fascinated by the tradition. What does it mean?
In cultures with arranged marriages, this is a time when the couple finally gets to know each other. In other cultures, it’s the time that the couple first becomes sexually intimate. In still others, it’s a private time to adjust to the married state without the pressures of daily responsibilities. Often, the days or month of couple alone-time is some combination of all three.
It is very essential to have a honeymoon when the marriage take place, some of the benefit are:
Reasons to have Honeymoon
To Plan for the Future
Vacation gives couples a bit of quiet time to plan for the future. Most couples-to-be-wed spend a year or more planning for a single day, hardly even thinking about anything past that day. Not having goals after your nuptials, however, can lead to major post-wedding depression. Replace the goal of the wedding, itself, with another goal about you and your partner’s future and you both will go home with something new to work towards.
To know each other
Honeymoon will help you to understand each other better. A relaxed environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the routine life, will enable the love between you and your partner to blossom.
The same is the case with couples who had love marriage. May be it will be in your honeymoon trip you will realize there is a child in your husband/wife.
To have unforgettable memories
A romantic honeymoon trip will definitely bring back some unforgettable moments for you and your partner to cherish the whole life.
No matter how small and minimal your wedding may be, it’s bound to be at least a little bit stressful. If you’re like most couples, you’ll spend the bulk of your wedding night feeling like you’re entertaining guests rather than celebrating each other, so it’s essential to finish it all off with something relaxing for just the two of you.
The ways you can make your Honeymoon so special
Let the Hotel know
If you’ve booked a honeymoon package with a complimentary turn-down service, great. If not, ask your hotel concierge if they’re able to arrange for a romantic turn-down before you return to the room for the evening.
Alternatively, consider packing little personal touches like chocolates and candles, then setting up a playlist filled with soft music for a night in.
Surprise each other
Unexpected gifts and gestures can be extremely romantic. Whether it’s a hand-written letter, wedding picture, poem, or jewelry, the extra thought and effort says a lot about your mutual affection. Another unique idea: Bring along a mini camcorder and record secret messages for each other, only to reveal once you’re back at home.
Take Amazing Photos
Be sure to snap amazing photos throughout your experience, while maintaining a balance between being present in the moment and enjoying it, and capturing it too. You’ll want to have tangible mementos of this once in a lifetime trip to share for years and generations to come, so shoot away and then create an album or memory book upon your return.
Catch Sunrise and Sunset
There’s something wonderfully romantic about watching the sun dip into the horizon and seeing the sky awash in a plethora of colors, especially at a unique location. It wouldn’t be too difficult if yours is a tropical resort getaway, but otherwise, do a quick search for the best places to watch the sunset in your honeymoon destination of choice. Hold hands, cuddle and share a kiss as you bask in the magic of the moment.
