If you want the magic to continue past your wedding day, then make the decision to book luxury honeymoon accommodations in New Zealand. Whether you are a Kiwi, or someone planning to take an overseas vacation to celebrate your nuptials, starting your life together surrounded by beauty and finery is the perfect way to say how much you love each other.
It can be difficult to decide where you should go, with so many places available. It's important to think past the first twenty four hours after arrival and consider if you may want to do a little more than escape away to your albeit-rather-beautiful room to enjoy some sights, attractions and even some shopping. Finding a retreat in the mid of a pretty city such as Christchurch can be a good way to have the best of both worlds.
If you are planning a trip here are some tips to make your time unforgetable for all the right reasons:
1. Do not travel on the day of your wedding
If you need to travel to get to your honeymoon, then stay somewhere local and then leave for your holiday the following day. No matter how many wedding planner's you put into the pot, it can be a fairly full on day, and arriving overtired is not the best way to start your time together. If you've gotten married in Canterbury however, it may just be the perfect place to stop, drop and unwind.
2. Make plenty of lists well before the wedding
You do not want to be making sure essentials such as passports, money, and that perfect perfect new lingerie is missed out – and leaving it to the last minute when planning a wedding is asking for too much stress on your special day. Plan well ahead, and pack your bags a few days before. Pack for a range of weather, including some sensible shoes and a jacket in case a walk or expedition calls your name. Luxury honeymoon accommodation in New Zealand is just as much about enjoying the fabulous great outdoors as it is about loving the pretty rooms you've booked yourselves into.
3. Be clear of expectations when you book
If you have particular needs or expectations it's best to check the place you book can meet these on booking. Taking your holiday together at a luxury establishment does ensure you can expect a high level of service, but if you have special needs or maybe a disability it's a good idea to check the place you are booking can accommodate you requirements.
4. Enjoy relating to the hosts
Here are people who love meeting new people and sharing some of their world. Talk to them about the best things to do and see, and let them help you make your time a magical one. They'll duck away when you need privacy, and respect your newly married status, but they'll also be there for those moments you want to know which restaurant is best, or where to go for a romantic bush walk.
5. Bring home a souvenir
If you've had a special time, find a token that will be a reminder of your time together, that you can have in your home. It's a lovely way to further seal your union together and remind you of that amazing honeymoon and luxury accommodation in New Zealand.
