Have you planned your dream wedding and now you’re thinking about the perfect honeymoon to follow it? Have you thought about staying in Texas? There are many resorts in Dallas and the surrounding area that can give you a honeymoon experience you won’t forget without the anxiety and the credit card bills that go along with cruising to the islands or jetting to Europe.
With resorts in Dallas, you can honeymoon in a private cottage that will be so much more romantic than a cabin on a rolling ship or hotel room in a noisy city. In fact, what could be more romantic and stress-free than being alone together in a rustic setting, watching the sun setting on your back porch? But even with a low-stress cottage honeymoon, there are still a few things you can do to make it perfect:
- Plan for privacy. Your wedding is a time to celebrate with family and friends. Your honeymoon is your time alone together as a married couple, which means you may not want to leave your cottage for any reason. Make sure you bring music, movies, cards or anything else you can enjoy together. With the convenience of Mill Creek’s fully equipped kitchens, make sure you bring fun recipes and enough groceries to last your whole stay. And don’t forget a bottle of champagne to sip while you’re watching those sunsets.
- Pack for outdoor living. If you’re planning on taking advantage of the amenities that many resorts in Dallas offer while you’re honeymooning, make sure to bring the right clothes and equipment. You may want to hike or fish or swim so bring jeans, walking shoes and swimwear. Bring jackets for cooler weather and shorts and flipflops for warmer weather.
- Don’t bring anything work-related. As tempting as it is to stay connected to work, it’s not a great idea for either one of you. Spending time on the phone with your boss or clients can make for a very unhappy spouse. Your cottage honeymoon is your calm in the eye of the storm that is your regular lives. Leave laptops and briefcases where they belong – at work or at home.
- Be flexible. Your intention may have been to spend a week gazing into each other’s eyes; but that’s never as romantic as it sounds. Even though you may have planned to stay in, don’t feel bad about wanting to go out and find a restaurant or live music to enjoy. Just because you’re newly-married doesn’t mean you’ve just met. Most couples have known each other for a significant amount of time before they get married. If you do have a long history, forcing a contrived notion of what newlyweds should be doing into your unique honeymoon agenda just won’t be fun. Keep part of your itinerary open to a little adventure.
