Honeymoon: Romantic hours together on the beach and sea

The honeymoon is the most romantic holiday together you can imagine. Because while the wedding celebration was also intended for the families and friends of the new couple, the honeymoon is only for the couple themselves. Now they have time for each other, can enjoy the first days and weeks as a married couple and recover from the stress of wedding preparation. Honeymoons are therefore not planned like an ordinary holiday trip, but with a focus on romance.

Why do married couples travel after the wedding?

In the past, honeymoons were reserved exclusively for aristocrats and wealthy citizens, the average population could not afford this luxury and did not have time for it. In the wealthy strata of society, on the other hand, marriages were concluded for tactical reasons and the couples had only seen each other a few times beforehand if they were lucky. On a honeymoon, they should be able to get to know each other in peace after the marriage and, of course, father children. In the 20th century, more and more middle-class couples went on honeymoons and used this time to celebrate their love and start their marriage with a beautiful experience together – a development that continues to this day.

What is on offer on a honeymoon?

A honeymoon is not an ordinary couple’s holiday, as most newlyweds have certainly done together a few times. On the honeymoon, the reception in the hotel often shows that this is about love and togetherness. The room is usually also romantically decorated, many hotels have their own bridal suites and spread red rose petals on the bed or prepare the bathroom accordingly when the couple arrives. The hotel offers candlelight dinners and sometimes there are also activities especially for couples, if the hotel is popular as a location for newlyweds. Especially in typical honeymoon regions like the Maldives, you can expect a lot and look forward to a great honeymoon time.

Speaking of location – the honeymoon is something special and so should the location. Of course, the typical regions such as the Maldives or the Seychelles come into question. Here seclusion meets wellness and fantastic landscape, the sea and luxurious hotels are also available. Such a honeymoon is unforgettable, but it also has its price. Cheaper trips lead to the Mediterranean, for example, where there is also plenty of sun and great honeymoon hotels. But it can also be a great experience if the newlywed couple fulfills a joint dream for the occasion and chooses a honeymoon that does not correspond to the romantic cliché at all. Going to where both have always wanted to go as their first shared experience in marriage is also a romantic way to swear eternal love to each other.
