Maxx-brides Honeymoon - - Tips - Text by Grace So­larbe­sain

So you are hus­band and wife at last: You’ll cer­tainly wish to re­lax, com­pletely un­wind, en­joy time with your loved one and, of course, your ex­pe­ri­ence as Mr and Mrs must be un­for­get­table. This can hap­pen if you and your beloved one plan and dis­cuss your hon­ey­moon be­fore­hand, based on what you re­ally like to do. We take a look at top hon­ey­moon trends in 2013 to in­spire you in plan­ning your dream hon­ey­moon.

Ad­ven­ture & Ex­cite­ment

If you are an ac­tive cou­ple, ad­ven­ture trips can be an un­for­get­table get­away. En­joy a nice ex­pe­ri­ence to­gether spent on sa­fari, learn­ing how to surf, div­ing to beau­ti­ful is­lands, hik­ing nearby peaks, horserid­ing to­gether, or camp­ing at your favourite re­mote and breath­tak­ing lo­ca­tion. All the ac­tiv­i­ties will bring both of you closer to­gether and one day you can say, “Do you re­mem­ber?”, when you talk about your hon­ey­moon.

Bou­tique Ho­tels

Travel to a ro­man­tic bou­tique ho­tel for a lux­u­ri­ous and charm­ing hon­ey­moon. Bou­tique ho­tels have fewer than 100 rooms, of­fer per­son­al­ized ser­vice and have in­no­va­tive dé­cor. This has also been a pop­u­lar hon­ey­moon op­tion in 2013.

Hon­ey­moon Cruise

Spend your hon­ey­moon on blue and turquoise seas in lux­ury boats with only a few dozen cab­ins that can take you to spots that aren’t as much fun to reach via planes, trains and au­to­mo­biles. Your hon­ey­moon on the sea can be re­lax­ing, ro­man­tic and ex­otic. Imag­ine that you and your love are sail­ing away to­gether to a golden sun­set, plus se­cluded is­land beaches, din­ing on a bal­cony over­look­ing the ocean and pam­per­ing your body with spa treat­ments for two. You can also take many pho­tos from dif­fer­ent ex­otic lo­ca­tions in­stead of just one. With dozens of ships and itin­er­ar­ies avail­able, there are so many places to see and things to do.


Coun­try-hop­ping has be­come a trend this year for cou­ples in­tent on max­i­miz­ing their few days away from the of­fice and who can­not seem to de­cide be­tween sev­eral op­tions. If you plan wisely, you can go to the beach, the city or even the coun­try. Just make sure you look at all trans­porta­tion op­tions so you save time and max­i­mize your travel ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

Green Hon­ey­moon

If you love green en­vi­ron­ments you can choose to va­ca­tion at an eco-re­sort. An eco-friendly hon­ey­moon of­fers the per­fect blend of ro­mance and eco-re­spon­si­bil­ity. Stay at green ho­tels that use so­lar power and have a min­i­mal in­flu­ence on their sur­round­ings and you will make a com­mit­ment to each other and the Earth at the same time.

Pri­vate Hon­ey­moon

You can spend your first day as a hus­band and wife at a pri­vate place, with only each other for com­pany. Whether it is a collection of bun­ga­lows on the beach or a cute coun­try­side house, a pri­vate villa can be a good al­ter­na­tive hon­ey­moon.

The Sport­ing Life

A hon­ey­moon spent to­gether see­ing your favourite world-class sport­ing event in per­son can be a thrill, even if you don’t nec­es­sar­ily fol­low the team.

Taste Love

If you and your love are “food­ies”, then make that the fo­cus of your hon­ey­moon. Choose where to travel by the type of cui­sine you want and the foods that you’d like to try. Whether it’s a restau­rant with a 12-course tast­ing menu, a wine bar with a well-versed som­me­lier, or a mar­ket with the fresh­est lo­cal pro­duce, take ad­van­tage of your hon­ey­moon abroad by let­ting your ap­petite be your guide.
