Baby, it’s cold outside!
Are beach honeymoons overrated??? Well… probably not, they’re pretty great actually… but is the sun-kissed, salt-tanged vibe the only way to go for a wonderful honeymoon? We think not! And so we’d like to dedicate this blog-post to the Winter Wonderland Honeymooners out there, with…
5 Great Reasons to Honeymoon in Winter!
- Snuggling up together. Nothing like the cooler weather to give you a great reason to share body warmth with your loved one!
- Open fireplaces. They flicker mesmerisingly. They crackle gently in an otherwise silent room. And they provide an outlet for the low-level arsonist tendencies of the modern male. What’s not to love?
- Mulled wine. You just don’t get enough reasons to make this stuff in your day to day life, but it’s a beautiful, beautiful thing.
- Hot tubs. Enough said.
- Skiing (or snowboarding; whatever works for you). After all, how much time can one couple spend lazing around being loved-up?! Skiing gives you a fantastic opportunity to get your daily buzz on your holiday (as well as some healthy exercise!) and then snuggle up with your newly-minted spouse in front of a crackling fireplace in the evening. And don’t forget your glass of mulled wine!
Winter weddings are often cheaper too, and you may find it tricky planning dates for both the wedding and the honeymoon that fall into a particular time of year if you’re going overseas (if so, you might want to take a look at our post on When To Travel).
So there you have it – the alternative to the beach shack you maybe hadn’t considered, but perhaps you should! Check out our sample registry for more ideas, or click here for more info on creating your own honeymoon registry. Happy planning!
