The wedding season is officially upon us, and if you are one of the lucky ones heading up the aisle to say your “I Do’s” in 2012, then you are most probably up to your ears in colour schemes, wedding cake samples, and honeymoon brochures!
Planning a wedding can be great fun, and providing you do not suffer from a case of ‘Bridezilla’ or indeed ‘Groomzilla’ the lead up to your big day can be just as much fun as the event itself.
Once the dress, the venue, and the invitations are confirmed, the next part of your wedding plan should be all about the honeymoon. A chance to get away from it all, enjoy your first days as newlyweds, and relax after months of wedding stress, a luxury honeymoon is all about warm sunshine and soft sandy beaches… or is it?
The demand for ‘unusual’ honeymoon destinations is definitely on the increase, and if you would like to do something a little bit different after your wedding, our Top 3 Unusual Honeymoon Ideas may just give you some inspiration:
Driving Across America
Something I can highly recommend! We flew into Los Angeles, picked up a rental car, and spent the next four weeks driving cross the Southern States all the way to Key West! With no fixed plans and no timetable, it was exciting, romantic, and a completely stress free honeymoon.
Heading away from the beach and into the mountains, an Alpine honeymoon is just about as romantic as it gets! Just imagine… a secluded log cabin set alongside a picturesque lake, surrounded by nothing but trees and wild birds, an open fire, a bottle of wine, and the one you love – surely this is a honeymoon of dreams!
A Luxury Train Ride across Africa
There is something incredibly romantic about Africa, and one of the best ways to visit the many countries spread out across this vast continent is by train. Rovos Rail offers the most spectacular journeys through South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Tanzania, and once you are aboard one of the luxury locomotives, you will be treated like kings & queens. Opulent cabins, fine dining, exquisite wines, and superior service make this a honeymoon to remember.
The start of a new life, honeymoons are all about indulgence, so why not treat yourselves, and do something a little bit different!
