Travel Advice for Brides: Consider a New England Honeymoon

Alternative to Tropical Vacations

weddings and honeymoon destinations

Brides-to-Be are putting the finishing touches on their June wedding plans.  The date’s been set, wedding gowns have been altered and the guest lists are being finalized. Getting married is truly one of the magnificent moments in your life.

I was a June bride and when our anniversary rolls around, I always remember how spectacular the New England weather was that day.  With the exception of perhaps a handful of dates in 36 years, the sky has always been clear.

On our honeymoon we visited Bermuda.  Many couples are choosing to stay closer to home these days for economic reasons. There are many affordable New England destinations that are perfect for honeymoons! Choosing Maine for your honeymoon can be a great alternative to the usual tropical honeymoon spots.

For example, Maine’s slogan is “Vacationland”, and once you have been there you’ll see why. This beautiful New England state offers miles of picturesque shoreline, quaint fishing towns and gorgeous lighthouses. Beautiful in the summer when the beaches are warm and inviting, or in the fall when the trees change color, honeymooning in Maine can be a romantic and unique way to usher in your new life.  Just last fall we visited Ogunquit Maine, and walked the Marginal Way for the first time.

Ensuring an enjoyable honeymoon requires great planning. You can minimize problems by planning well in advance and taking a few precautions. For example, it goes without saying that it’s very important for a person who wears contact lenses to maintain ready access to a backup pair of contact lenses or glasses. Contacts work well for swimmers, and Maine’s famous coastline provides ample opportunity for swimming, especially at Old Orchard Beach.

So, if you’re all set to go and have a leisurely trip, make sure your contact lenses are a part of the baggage.  Buying contacts online is easy at BuyMoreContacts.com.  Their Acuvue Oasys weekly disposable line by Johnson and Johnson are designed for maximum hydration and are also softly tinted.

Consider exploring the beauty of New England’s coastline, swimming in the Atlantic Ocean, or hiking the mountains of Acadia National Park – all while staying in towns known for their hospitality and charm.  And don’t forget to try a “Downeast” Maine Lobster Dinnah before you leave!
