How to plan your honeymoon?


Planning a wedding has been such a massive adrenalin-fuelled experience that hubby and I don’t simply have the energy or any spare brain cells to plan anything else huge — like a honeymoon.

I always had a fantasy of riding a horse and carriage at the end of my wedding with my husband and then waving goodbye to my friends and family as we ride off to our honeymoon destination.

Zanzibar, Zanzibar, Zanzibar….  Bali, Bali, Bali…. I’ve been chanting those words for years. Speaking it into existence, claiming Zanzibar & Bali by faith, calling those things which are not, as though they were. Zanzibar Zanzibar Zanzibar Bali Bali Bali that’s where I have dreamed of going for my honeymoon via Dubai of course.

I didn’t really know how expensive Zanzibar and Bali were until I did a random search last night. Honeymoon packages were coming up to nearly £2,000 N1million for 5 nights, for now I’ll just enjoy Zanzibar through the eyes of @naijasinglegirl

We didn’t budget that kind of price for honeymoon oo. To be fair we actually haven’t had the chance to discuss where we will be going for honeymoon because the wedding planning has been so overwhelming. Right now the budget is looking like we will go to Zaria Zaria Zaria & Bauchi Bauchi Bauchi via Delta!

Some of my married friends have told me that they didn’t go on honeymoon immediately, whilst some said life happened and they didn’t go on honeymoon at all.

We all know it’s customary to take a fabulous trip immediately after the big day, but is it really a do or die affair; do we need to succumb to pressures faced in the modern day?

Agreed the honeymoon is a much-needed relief after months of wedding planning. For many couples, it’s also the trip of a lifetime — but would pumping the breaks for a few months be a bad idea?

Somebody suggested we visit Obudu Ranch in Calabar apparently it’s meant to be serene and one of the best tourist attractions in Nigeria. Online reviews and images are a bit hit and miss

As all brides will testify, getting married is expensive! And I’m starting to find out that a lot more costs are starting to creep up now that we are near the end of the process.

Would it be such a bad idea to go to this Obudu Cattle Ranch place for a few days at more than 10 times less than what Zanzibar is offering us, and then we can plan properly for a nice vacation towards the end of the year. Who has been to Obudu cattle Ranch before?
