Why you should consider a honeymoon right after the wedding

Whether it’s a long, luxurious trip to far-flung destinations, or a short getaway around the region, here, three reasons why you should be jetting off immediately after your celebrations.

While it would be nice to head overseas right after the wedding, not many couples are doing the same these days, preferring instead, to save up (financially and time off at work) for a longer holiday they can indulge in.

Personally, I feel, after all that stress and excitement during your wedding planning process, you’ll need to take a break, even if it’s a quick one. Here’re my reasons why.

1. Time out together

You’ve worked hard while getting ready for the reception, as well as getting your new house ready.

Ride on the high of your newly-wedded bliss and use this opportunity to enjoy some time alone with your new husband.

It’s also a great time to de-stress, relax, and soak in the fact that you’re finally married! Although, don’t stress over rushing either – you can leave a day or two after taking a breather, getting your items packed, and so on.

2. No more post-wedding blues

We’ve had some brides tell us they’ve experienced the blues after their final wedding event.

I think it’s probably because they’ve got nothing to look forward to after that.

A getaway would help you get over it. And, when you return, you can relive your big day over and over again from your photographer’s sneak previews, or guest photos.

Besides, should you wait, you may never get that honeymoon due to family and/or work commitments, or other unexpected reasons.

3. Make full use of this time

Some companies give the newly-wedded bride or groom some days off immediately after the wedding.

For instance, if your company gives you four days off and your celebrations only last a day or two, you get two or three days free on top of your annual leave.

That said, if you’re having your solemnisation and reception on separate days, the leave will only apply on either date, so choose wisely.
