Planning a wedding takes time, and you’re likely also thinking about the honeymoon. When imagining you and your love going away somewhere after saying, “I do,” what do you see? Are they holding your hand and stroking your hair as the two of you admire the picturesque views of the ocean? Or maybe you’re admiring the rolling hills of green in the Irish countryside? No matter how or where you spend the honeymoon, just remember you’re going to be with your best friend. If a honeymoon road trip is in the cards, here are ways to prepare for it.
Think About Safety Supplies
While road-tripping with your honey may sound fun, and it will be, any trip you take won’t always go according to plan. You might accidentally cut yourself or experience an allergic reaction while driving through dry and wet climates. When planning your honeymoon road trip, think about safety supplies.
When driving, you might feel a headache coming on; you’re not going to pull over every four stops or so to grab a bottle of water and maybe an aspirin. Before even hitting the road, you should pack the essentials, such as ice packs, band-aids, gauze, antibacterial ointment, and tweezers.
Build a Car Safety Kit
You may experience more delays on the road if you don’t do a thorough inspection of your car. When examining the car, check the motor and oil, and ensure you have a full tank. If you think your car might break down—as they tend to do, so that’s great you’re thinking about it now! —prepare a car safety kit.
Always keep a few essential tools in your car, such as a spare tire, flashlight, jumper cables, and a flashlight. These items will save you from spending the night roadside, waiting for a tow truck to show up and drive you to a hotel.
Consider Adding Pit Stops To the Itinerary
A honeymoon road trip should include pit stops. Pit stops can be landmarks, national parks, or small towns with bustling downtown areas. They can also include your individual interests, such as comic book shops and plant nurseries.
Make the trip about sharing interests, not solely about the destination. With that said, make sure your pit stops are not too far from your route when mapping them.
Research Your Honeymoon Destination
Researching your honeymoon destination is essential, especially if you’re going to an area that doesn’t get as much tourism as other places. A trip to Disney World, for example, won’t be the same as a local farming museum in a small town. Both places are fun to visit but consider other amenities before deciding on a location.
Congratulations newlyweds! Keep these ideas in mind during the organizing process when planning a road trip for your honeymoon. Just as your wedding day’s important to you, so should your honeymoon—make it a fun time for celebrating love and a new chapter together.
