Stepping out into the world for the first time as newlyweds, there's no reason your trip of a lifetime shouldn't be done in style. Garnering a bit of inspiration from our partner Sandals and their luxury honeymoon offerings (hello butler service!), we've come up with five sweet ways to live like royalty on your honeymoon without any stress-related travel woes.
1. Go For an Upgrade
If there was ever a time where an airline upgrade was worth the splurge, this is it. Besides the obvious like more spacious seats for you and your beau, a first-class ticket will ensure that your trip gets off on the right foot (and that you board before the rest of the passengers!). You'll take off sitting in the lap of luxury with a glass of Champagne in hand.
2. Settle Into an Over-the-Top Suite
Sure, location is one half of the honeymoon equation. But just as important is where you'll be staying once you get to your destination, whether it be a beachfront bungalow or a cliff-side suite. Explore special options like Love Nest Suites at Sandals' Luxury Included Resorts. These private enclaves are dubbed the Love Nest Suites because you'll want to do just that, curl up with your other half in dreamy digs, indulging in everything from butler service to the private plunge pool.
3. Bask in Luxury Services
On your honeymoon, you and your hubby deserve to be treated like royalty. To ensure the VIP treatment continues throughout every aspect of your vacation, upgrade your stay with custom-made concierge assistance. Club Sandals, for example, offers dedicated concierges that personally handle every detail of your stay, from speedy check-in to dinner reservations. To ensure nonstop pampering, opt for one (or several) luxe offerings from your hotel, like Sandals' personalized butler services. Their expert butlers are trained by the top-of-the-line Guild of Professional English Butlers, so you know you're in good hands when you're being treated to everything from a rose petal bath by candlelight to a romantic dinner for two on your private terrace.
4. Choose Romance 24/7
Obviously a honeymoon's entire raison d'être is love, love, love. Since there's no better time to indulge your inner romantic and up the ante on the courtship, you'll want to take full advantage of honeymoon enhancements and specialties. Sandals, for example, offers its guests dreamy evenings of private candlelit dinners under the stars, luxurious couples massages and even a special flower petal turn down service to make your honeymoon the stuff of romance novels.
5. Skip the Taxi Line
There's nothing worse than arriving home and worrying about lugging your bags while waiting in a taxi line or navigating an airport parking lot, especially if you're jet lagged. Skip the stress (and potential airport fight) and arrange for a car service that will be ready and waiting to whisk you home in style. Bonus points for a driver holding a sign with your new married names.
THE ULTIMATE DESTINATION WEDDING
Who knew starting the rest of your life could be so easy? We know that planning a wedding can be time consuming and demanding, which is why we've created an easy-to-use site that provides all the information and details that brides, grooms, and newlyweds find useful - from details on ceremony locations to legal requirements to testimonials from other couples – it's all here for the ultimate destination experience!
We invite you to explore our website and get to know a variety of resorts and packages, such as the brand new Simple Stunning Wedding packages designed by renowned expert Karen Bussen exclusively for Palladium Resorts in Jamaica, Punta Cana and Riviera Maya.
Choose your wedding or honeymoon destination, select your activities and accommodations, create your gift registry and be on your way to the honeymoon of your dreams.
A destination wedding allows couples to choose a beautiful unique wedding venue - in the Jamaicaan sand, on a cliff overlooking a beautiful lagoon, a small chapel in Mexico, on a cruise ship before visiting exotic ports of call, or even like royalty in a castle or private villa.
The cost of today's traditional wedding ceremony and reception can be outrageously expensive and last only a few hours. Have a wedding at a destination of your dreams can cost considerably less, include more amenities, and are very affordable for every budget. You are able to spend as many days as you elect creating unforgettable memories with your closest friends and family AND get the honeymoon you would not be able to afford after paying for the traditional wedding ceremony.
Have the fairy tale wedding and reception that you have always dreamt of!
