Perfect Honeymoon Destinations

Perfect Honeymoon Destinations

Honeymoons can be whatever you and your partner want them to be, travelling, skiing and even city escapes are becoming common choices for honeymoons, it’s all about what is most memorable and fun for you as newlyweds! If you’re looking for a sunny beach holiday as the honeymoon destination then this is a look at the 5 choices that offer just a little bit more than a beach and cocktails.

Mexico

One of the most popular Hollywood holiday choices, Mexico is a beautiful country full of beaches, booze and entertainment. Most resort areas are constantly opening new hotels and a lot are offering special packages that cater for honeymooners. Spas, golf courses and pool areas are likely to keep you most entertained throughout the honeymoon and it’s all supported by perfect restaurants in the evening. Areas such as Cancun go all out with entertainment too, famously, there’s a pirate ship dinner that you can go aboard and whilst you’re eating, another pirate ship comes next to it and a full evening of entertainment is shown with pirates flying across on ropes from ship to ship.

California

Known for its sunny beaches, California is a growing choice for newlyweds. Places like Santa Barbara are available for peaceful romantic days but the option for a busy day out in L.A is also on the cards. It’s ideal for any couple wanting to relax or go on an adventure. Snorkeling, hikes and even sea kayaking are all common day trips in California, and you never know, you might bump into a couple of actors on the beach.

Greece

Mykonos has been dubbed the new St. Tropez, a relaxing holiday that never seems tire from the perfect blue views. It’s become a famous craft beer location spot for holidaymakers and premiered the largest pool in Europe in 2017. It’s like booking a few weeks in paradise if you looking to relax for an extended amount of time.

Thailand

It’s becoming a well-known factor that Thailand is a dream honeymoon location. The country is full of festivals, drinking and lazing on the beach daily, and best of all once you get there, it’s a cheap place to part with money. Again, it’s a perfect location for laying on the beach daily, but for also exploring the local towns and remote islands. A lot of people come to Thailand to learn and embrace natural beauty, to be able to do this as a newlywed will only enhance the experience. Just be sure to pack a comfortably fitted tracksuit for the plane journey, it’s a long one.

South of France

Staying in Cannes is a perfect place for any honeymooner, it’s a seaside town full of luxuries, beach restaurants and lively bars. There’s plenty to do in Cannes itself but if it’s a long honeymoon, it’s a town that neighbors Monaco, Nice and St. Tropez and each town offers their own unique take to life by the sea, from a quiet seaside town of St. Tropez to the busy city of Monaco. Ideally, you could hire a car for your stay as most of the neighboring towns are less than a thirty-minute drive.

Will Rain Ruin Your Wedding Day?

You have taken the time to plan a beautiful outdoor ceremony, whether in a park, plantation, courtyard, or the beach…it is your vision, to be married under a clear blue sky with a couple puffs of friendly white clouds…

Over 90% of the time this happens!! However, I always recommend having a Plan B, in case of bad weather!! This Spring, we have skirted a couple of storms, we had to move a wedding from a 4pm time to a 1pm time to avoid the storms, and we had rain at the end of one wedding. We are as flexible as possible with the weather.

We watch the weather very closely, and 1 week prior to your ceremony, we discuss the weather, and if we need a potential Plan B. If the weather is questionable, 2 days prior to the wedding, we will again discuss the options as well as a deadline for when the decision needs to be made by.

So what do we do if it rains?

First thing we check is when is the rain. The general weather may say 60% chance of rain, but if that is in the morning and you have an afternoon wedding, no problem! Next we check the where. It could be pouring in Mount Pleasant, and not a drop in Charleston, or Folly Beach. How flexible are we with timing? If it is an elopement it is easier to say afternoon storms, so let’s do the wedding at 2pm instead of 6pm. If we have 30 guests, it is harder to change time.In most locations, there is a covered area close by. We also check with where the reception is being held to see if we can use the space, or if there is an area at your accommodations.

Often we hear from brides, “we don’t care if it’s raining, we are going ahead with the ceremony!”

We understand that thinking, however, if it is thunder and lightning, for safety, Reynolds Treasures and any vendor contracted under Reynolds Treasures will not be out in the weather. If it is a soft rain, the officiant can still perform the ceremony, but most photographers and musicians will not allow their equipment in the damaging weather. Each vendor has the right to make a judgement call with their equipment or instruments.

We don’t want to scare you away from your dream outdoor wedding! We just want you to have a plan just incase!!! We perform over 250 weddings a year, and rain may affect 10% of the weddings, and we need to make changes to about 1%, while the others the storms dissipate. As always Reynolds Treasures will always work with you and help you along the way to avoid any last minute worries!!
