My boyfriend has worked so hard to help us afford our dream wedding. What are some things I can do to make my honeymoon (hint hint) memorable? Caroline 25, Oklahoma City, OK
what a great question! I think that honeymoons can be a lot like Christmas- it’s something you guys have anticipated for so long, and after all the stress of planning a wedding and working so hard to pay for it, you frantically get to the honeymoon portion and it just flies by. That’s why it’s so very important to create memories and share experiences that will last you a lifetime.
How do you do that? Well, it really depends on where you guys choose to go, and then from there, it’s all about the experiences.Do things together that you wouldn’t normally get the chance to do back home. Outdoor activities- take tours, try a sport, see what type of those things your resort or hotel has to offer. Pick up a city guide for the area- both Lonely Planet and Frommer’s are great- and explore as a couple. One of the best ways to get closer to someone is to bond over new shared experiences. Take lots of pictures and video! Kiss at every landmark that you visit, or at historic or popular intersections. Make out in the back of a taxi. Feed each other at a local cafe while you people watch. and just when you can’t take it anymore, head back to your honeymoon suite for…
Memorable honeymoon sex! Some people say that having sex when you’re married is somehow different, that things change. Make that a change for the better. Spend time indulging your partner in his/her fantasies. You have a whole vacation to seduce them, with little or no distractions. My best advice is to go for it- and bring lots of lube. (though visiting an adult store on your honeymoon could be lots of fun too, just look one up online!)
And remember, just because the honeymoon ends doesn’t mean honeymoon sex has to. When you return home, even months later, wear the same lingerie, the same perfume, or play the same song that was playing during some memorable lovemaking and remind him or her of the amazing time that you shared together, and start those juices flowing again and again.
