Welcome to a world of wedding ramblings.
Here you'll typically find an array of topics from fun, inspirational posts to a more thoughtful perspective on something topical.
There's no particular order or continuity to my blogging (sorry!) I just share my thoughts with you as and when they come to me. or I need to get something off my chest.
If there is anything in particular you'd like my take on then just let me know!
This week’s ramblings are centred around a subject that is very close to my heart, COVID-19: how is it impacting your honeymoon, and what can you do about it?
As I’m sure you know by now, Alex and I are due to get married in August 2020. When Coronavirus hit, we hadn’t booked our honeymoon, but we knew we wanted to go to South Africa in January 2021 and were in discussions with our travel consultant about potential itineraries.
Like so many couples, we are now facing the fact we may have to move our wedding to 2021. This left us wondering what to do about our honeymoon…do we delay that too, or do we potentially honeymoon before our wedding?!
After some back and forth, we decided we would take the plunge and book the honeymoon anyway!
Our dream honeymoon in South Africa is now booked for January 2021, and if we have to postpone our wedding to summer 2021, then so be it, we will be honeymooning before our wedding…but so what?
For us, we wanted something positive to look forward to in what is a fairly dark time, plus we may already have to delay our wedding so why delay our honeymoon and life plans further? The time of year we want to go would mean delaying to January 2022 and that just feels too far away, so we may be a little unconventional and end up doing things back to front, but that’s okay for us. For other couples, this wouldn’t be their preferred way of doing things, it’s a personal choice and a confusing time for us all (to say the least!).
So, to help give you find your way through this, I have roped in two amazing, independent travel consultants to answer some Covid-19 honeymoon questions that may be running through your mind.
