Your honeymoon is the most romantic (and important!) night of your life so far, so naturally you want everything to be perfect. The problem is — there is so much to plan! This guide is meant to help you ensure all your boxes are checked, so all you have to worry about is kicking back and relaxing with your spouse.
Start Planning Early
Planning a wedding is hard enough, and adding planning a honeymoon on top of that can seem daunting — if not utterly impossible. But there are a lot of benefits to planning early including:
- Saving money on airfare. Depending on how far your wedding venue is from your destination, flying might be the best option. Booking your flight months in advance ensures you get a great deal!
- Saving money on lodging. While many hotels, B&Bs, and inns offer packages for lovebirds celebrating their special day, it never hurts to book early.
- Planning your adventures. Are you and your partner huge Steelers fans? If it’s a passion you both share, maybe you want to catch a game! You can plan your PA honeymoon getaway at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel — within walking distance of Heinz stadium so you can celebrate your love cheering on a team you both love!
When you start planning early, you can maximize the fun you have while minimizing the prices you pay.
Set a Budget & STICK TO IT!
Who says your honeymoon has to break the bank? Sit down with your sweetheart and decide on a budget you’re both comfortable with. Once you’re on the getaway, you’ll be able to relax knowing you’ve planned for everything!
Find a hotel, B&B, or inn with a Honeymoon Package. Not only does this often help you save more money than you would on a traditional stay, but there are added elements meant to make your trip extra special and romantic like celebratory sparkling wine, chocolates, rose petals, and glowing candles set in the room for your arrival, and more.
Plan Activities You Both Love…
So, maybe Steelers football isn’t your thing, but what about golf? Or hiking? Doing something you both love together is the best way to celebrate your union.
And if golf is your thing, we suggest staying at the Medix Run Lodges & Cabins — located conveniently near golf courses, waterways, and other awesome seasonal outdoor activities for you to enjoy!
… And Try Something New
Now that you’re officially married, it’s time to start some new traditions as a couple! Not only is this a fun way to find new passions together, but you’ll always remember your honeymoon as being the first place you tried something new.
Do you have a special bottle of wine as a couple to break out on special occasions? You should! A wine tasting is the perfect way to find out more about one another, discover new flavors, and start a new tradition of having your special bottle of wine to break out when you’re celebrating one another. Stock up on a few bottles of your favorite to share on anniversaries, promotion celebrations, and other special days.
Remember to not get too caught up in the pressure of having “fun” constantly. Take some time to unwind just the two of you, and enjoy the days you’ve taken off of your busy lives to celebrate one another and your marriage.
Maybe this means staying somewhere like the Buhl Mansion Guesthouse and Spa and getting a couple’s massage, or it could be staying in your cozy suite and snuggling up next to your in room fireplace to catch up on your favorite Netflix show.
No matter what comes to mind for you and your partner when thinking about relaxing, make sure to make time.
However and wherever you decide to celebrate your PA honeymoon getaway, remember to focus on and celebrate what’s really important: each other!
