I have long personally believed that a honeymoon should be taken at the beach. And, since I find myself with this handy little wedding soapbox here, it’s a belief I have declared more than once.
But I’ll reiterate: Planning a wedding is crazy stressful and time-consuming. Your wedding day, while indescribably wonderful, will be incredibly mentally and physically draining. Afterwards, you will feel a tired in your bones that you may not have felt before. (If I didn’t think it’d prematurely deglamorize the whole wedding thing for you, I’d share a picture of myself sound asleep on the floor, rolled halfway under my parents’ coffee table the afternoon after my wedding, brand new husband splayed out, snoring, next to me.)
Now, feeling that way, do you want to spend the next one-to-two weeks reading maps, planning itineraries, making reservations, navigating around, managing language barriers, and essentially planning and executing another little mini event?
