Honeymoon – this will make you the most beautiful vacation of your life

The honeymoon is one of the oldest and most beautiful wedding customs that you should put into practice in some way! Regardless of whether you are going on a long-distance trip or are looking for a nearby destination, even if it is only a weekend trip at first – treat yourself to some time for two after the wedding to consciously enjoy the start of married life.

The term honeymoon comes from the Middle High German word “vlittern”, which means something like “caress”. To this day, the honeymoon is about spending as much time as possible together and enjoying it to the fullest. With our honeymoon tips, the planning should succeed … formal dresses for women


This is how you start planning your honeymoon

1. When do we start planning the honeymoon?

As soon as the wedding date is fixed, you should also think about when the honeymoon should take place. If necessary, take the desired number of weeks off after the wedding, so that a colleague’s vacation planning doesn’t get in the way. Depending on your employer, you may even be able to apply for special leave .

If you want to go on a long-distance trip in any case, you should first find out about the climate of the travel destination. The summer is often not recommended because of the rainy seasons, so it may be advisable to go on a romantic city trip to Paris or Venice immediately after the wedding and catch up on the long-haul trip later. The so-called minimoon, the short honeymoon, are ideal if you don’t want to travel that long or want to save money. You can read more about this in the article “Minimoon: Where you can relax and enjoy your short honeymoon” .

The detailed planning and booking of the honeymoon is about 9 months before the wedding. That’s why our honeymoon tips continue with the planning chapter.

2. How do we start planning the honeymoon?

When it comes to where the honeymoon should go, first discuss in peace and quiet during an evening for two how both of you personally imagine the honeymoon.

Would you like romance and togetherness, peace and relaxation to recover from the exciting and exhausting wedding preparations? Or adventure and action, lots of activities and something extraordinary?

Ideally, you have the same / similar wishes, otherwise you should agree in advance on a compromise that both will be happy with. Splitting the honeymoon, for example a week in the city and a week at the beach, is also becoming increasingly popular.

Anyone who longs for a few undisturbed days for two is in the right place with the Minimoon .

3. What do we have to consider when planning the honeymoon?

When planning your honeymoon, we can give you the following honeymoon tips:

  • If you are traveling long-distance, you should make an appointment with a doctor early because of the necessary vaccinations.
  • Do you have to apply for a passport?
  • Do you need additional health insurance abroad?
