Honeymoon & Travel

“The first bond of society is marriage.” DeOfficious; Cicero

In ancient days, after the wedding festivities, the groom kept his bride in hiding to prevent their relatives from recapturing her; they stayed secluded for one month, the cycle of the moon, and drank mead, a honey wine, hence the term honeymoon.Your honeymoon is a time to relax together, and it serves as a bridge for the change in your relationship. It is your private celebration, unlike the public declaration of your wedding ceremony and reception. It is a time for the two of you!Personal preferences determine how long, and how much you wish to spend on the honeymoon. Many couples take a romantic, fabulous trip and, a faraway place makes perfect sense. If you have the funds and the time,it is worth making that trip of a lifetime.

Some couples do chose to have their honeymoon close to home because it is simply easier to prepare for and travel to. Your honeymoon is a time to simply be together without any distractions.
