Honeymoonthe word conjures up the image of a secluded place and beautiful, young couple absorbed in each others company completely cut off from the mundane life, swept away by the feel of the moment. Honeymoon which traditionally means the first journey of a couple after the wedding is probably the most romantic of all our travel experiences that we have in our lifetime. It is a kind of extension of your wedding ceremony, only this part of the wedding is celebrated by only two of you. The women all over the world have at least one point in common and that is dreaming about a romantic honeymoon throughout their girlhood. It is the honeymoon trip which triggers off the journey of the other part of your life and it is probably the only trip of your life when you and your spouse get the opportunity of spending some precious moments in each others company, cut off from the discourse of the outside world. So everybody wants to make most out of it.

However you can fulfill your dream of having the most romantic honeymoon without burning a hole in your pocket. It only requires a little imagination and a good amount of planning. In fact your bonding as a couple starts to culminate right from the days when you dream and plan about a beautiful honeymoon. Do you know why honeymoon planning gets so interesting? Because planning together gives you the pleasure of sharing. While you are planning for honeymoon you are sharing each others dreams and getting to know each others aspirations. After all love is all about sharing, is not it? So never let go the chance of planning together. Believe me, this is the first step of culmination of a great bonding that you are going to share in your future life with each other. Although traditionally, it is the grooms duty to arrange for the honeymoon, the modern women expect a share in their honeymoon planning. So the boys, never make the mistake of planning your honeymoon entirely on your own. It has some surprise value, no doubt. But the respect you earn from your fiancée by involving her in the planning of honeymoon becomes an important asset for you in the future course of your conjugal life. And the future brides, you should be considerable and sensible enough throughout the planning process so that the honeymoon does not become the headache for your future husband instead of a means for a romantic escape. These little pieces of considerations and small sacrifices for each other create the backdrop of a truly romantic honeymoon.
