Valentine’s Day is only three weeks away. Instead of buying jewelry and chocolate this Valentine’s Day, why not consider planning a trip for you and your sweetheart? New research commissioned by the U.S. Travel Association reports couples who travel together are significantly more satisfied with their relationships, enjoying better sex and improved romance long after the trip ends. You won’t find that very surprising…we’ve all known that couples who travel together have healthier, happier relationships compared to those who don’t. So maybe, this Valentine’s Day, couples should re-think the traditional calorie-laden gifts and strengthen their relationships by planning a romantic getaway.
Maybe your wedding and bridal shower days are behind you–that certainly doesn’t mean your days of Romance Travel are long gone too! One of the fastest growing trends in Romance Travel is the Vow Renewal Vacation. Couples who have survived raising their own children, multiple job changes, financial ups and downs and all of the little surprises that life can throw at you are deciding to re-commit to each other – and their family – during a multi-generational getaway. Sometimes it is to commemorate a “big number” celebration like a 25th Wedding Anniversary and sometimes “just because” they have managed to still like each other after all the years together. What better way for new “empty nesters” to to begin their life together after the kids have moved on??? Vow Renewal ceremonies can be as simple and elegant or as large and “loud” as you choose, and the whole extended family has the benefit of spending time together in a relaxing setting while experiencing a family celebration.
Destination Weddings/Weddings on a Cruise Ship
If you, or someone you know, are looking to plan an unusual and memorable wedding without the $30,000 commonly invested in your one-day event, how about combining it with a honeymoon on board a ship or at a beach or other destination?
Most cruise lines offer a wedding on board prior to sailing on embarkation day. You can invite all your family and friends to witness the ceremony and partake in the reception; and for those who do not wish to sail away, disembarking prior to sail away time is an option. Some couples prefer to have their ceremony performed on board during the cruise. The Captain is authorized to perform ceremonies or you can ask your religious leader to travel on the cruise with you to join you together as man and wife.
Destination Weddings are becoming more and more popular. Imagine saying “I Do” with your toes in the sand on a Hawaiian or Caribbean island beach, or in the vineyard of your own Tuscan Villa, or at another venue that means something special to you and your intended. Travel Professionals are well-trained in the legalities and organization of details so that you don’t have to stress over the big day, and neither do your parents! You can still have input and make decisions about your ceremony details, but leave all those pesky details to someone else. Your friends and family probably wouldn’t be too upset about squeezing in a little trip to paradise either! A number of All-Inclusive Resorts that are known for their Destination Wedding programs offer sharply discounted “preview” packages for the bride & groom to get a chance to actually see the venues and familiarize themselves with a resort before committing to the “big day”.
