The customs says go for the honeymoon just after your wedding. But these days that can be a bad idea. The wedding rituals are long and go on for three or more days. If you are doing a destination wedding in another country then it becomes physically demanding. You don’t want the first day of your honeymoon sleeping. On a destination wedding add a day extra with your family as say you’re goodbyes. This will help you relax and get you ready for your honeymoon. Now you need the recipe of how to have the best honeymoon, read on.
It doesn’t have to be on another continent. The location of your honeymoon can be in your home country. It is about you two and what quality time you spend just after your wedding. Plan your honeymoon as soon as you start preparing for your wedding. Do check the season you are going for your honeymoon. Your dream location at that time might be a rainy season. Another thing you don’t have to spend a fortune on your honeymoon. I know you want the best but it doesn’t have to be expensive. You will be coming back and the reality of credit cards will hit you. Make a budget and stick with it.
The bridal trousseau is the new lingo. You will be finding a lot of information on how to pack it. But you don’t have to fill your luggage. Shoes are one thing which takes a lot of luggage space. So be very selective about it. If it’s the tropics I doubt you will need too many heels, maybe just one for that nightclub. You can add one cocktail dress with it. Wearing a new sexy nightie and lingerie every day is a must. Yes, every day a new bikini is a must too. Don’t forget to carry causals for return and for night markets. Carry only the essential makeup, you were loaded with it for many days.
Carry a black or brown eyeliner, sparkling eye shadow, and highlighter for that glow. Yes, lipsticks bright pink, baby pink & matte red color, lip glosses, and lip liners should do it.
For the best honeymoon don’t put too many things on the itinerary of sex. We all have ideas and fantasies about the honeymoon. Those fantasies are not tasks that you have to complete in a stipulated time. The best sex will happen when the pressure of it is low. New experiments should be limited. Toys are fine but did you discuss this earlier. The toy in the bed may shock the other party. This goes for both the bride and groom. Having a drink or two is fine but please don’t get drunk. Not only does it spoil the night but the next day too. This also does not go well if one person gets drunk.
The Hygiene, I am assuming before marriage your beauty consultant must have done their jobs. There is going to be lots of sex, so do wash the area after every sexual interaction. Do urinate after every interaction and drink cranberry juice and water. It will help you keep away from urinary tract infections. If you are not planning to have a baby immediately bring protection. This point needs to be discussed before the honeymoon. Bring all the necessary precautions from home. For the groom, condom sizes differ abroad, so bring your favorites from home. For the bride, if you want to use protection consult a doctor from home and bring/do it from home.
You might know each other or it’s an arranged marriage certain etiquettes need to be followed. The first on the list is checking your phone frequently. This also includes Ipads and laptops, these are a big no-no. This could lead to the first argument or a fight after marriage. Personally, I feel you don’t need to Insta or FB your honeymoon. If you really want to share do it when you come back. For your work, inform everybody beforehand. Even for emergencies mails are a better option which can be checked once a day.
The second would be the food. You can be a foodie but having a bad stomach on your honeymoon can halt it. For the best honeymoon don’t go for unknown food it will help. Do try aphrodisiacs food like chocolate, asparagus, figs, oysters, strawberries, watermelon. You can even ask your chef to add these foods to your menu.
A couple I know were avid travelers. They went out on so many tours and excursions, they had no energy left. They slept most of the time on their honeymoon. It was not even worth it in the end because the spent was too much. Goings for long walks on beaches and strolls in night markets is still better and romantic. Spa Massages is also a must for the wonderful best honeymoon experience.
You might be in a habit of waking up late, try not to do so on your honeymoon. Get up early and get the most of the time for the day. For a change get to see the sunrise, you can have the best sex seeing the sunrise. If you get up by noon you have lost the day. Even the tours start in the morning. Then you have no option but to stay at the resort.
The best honeymoon for you hasn’t ended it just got started. Do not forget that honeymoon sex can happen at home. You will be back to work but don’t forget what worked for you. Recreate those magic moments at home. Also, sort out those honeymoon pictures now. Do frame a few photos for life long memories. Share a few, not all, on your social media accounts.
Do let mastyatri.com customize that best honeymoon package for you.
