The 2018 results are in and according to a survey of 3,300 couples, the cost of the average wedding in the UK last year was £32,273, with the honeymoon alone setting couples back £4,545.* Instead of blowing the budget on an expensive exotic honeymoon location, why not consider recreating the romance of your dream honeymoon destination closer to home?
High street retailer, Robert Dyas, has come up with a host of creative ideas to set the scene for the ultimate honeymoon haven at home. Richard Redman, senior buyer and outdoor expert for Robert Dyas says, “There is really no need to break the bank to enjoy an enchanting, memorable honeymoon. With a just few thoughtful touches and some affordable additions to outdoor space you can experience an idyllic honeymoon to remember in the comfort of your own home. So, get set for a couple of weeks of romantic relaxation!”
Set the mood
Nothing sets the mood for romance quite like soft ambient outdoor lighting. The elegant Smart Solar Damasque Lantern (Was £29.99 now £12.99) illuminates at dusk bathing a garden in patterned warm light. Add music to the magical atmosphere with a mix of your favourite love songs with the Kitsound Diggit Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker (£39.99). The removeable stake means you can take your music wherever you go, and the rechargeable battery allows your favourite tunes to play on for up to eight hours at a time.
Cuddle up in comfort
Sometimes it’s the simplest things in life which make for the most special moments. Now that you’ve set the mood, simply curl up together on the Maze Rattan Rose Hanging Chair (Was £599.00 now £499.00). This double hanging chair makes the perfect spot to while away the evening or enjoy a sunny afternoon for two.
For extra comfort and style for your loved one, add a Premier Housewares Black Love Cushion (£19.99) and why not indulge yourselves even further and snuggle up under a super soft and luxurious Silver Flannel Fleece Throw (Was £9.99 now £4.93)?
For cooler summer nights, what could be more romantic than the mesmerising effect of flickering firelight and keeping warm together by the fire with The La Hacienda Fire Pit (£89.99). The oiled steel finish will oxidise over time to look beautifully rustic and with its sturdy, durable design, the fire pit will last for many years to come.
If you were already living together before your wedding, chances are you will not be needing another coffee maker or waffle iron. Asking for contributions towards your honeymoon piece de resistance is a practical option. Splash out on an inflatable Lazy Spa Paris Hot Tub (£459.99) and surround yourself with thousands of tiny bubbles from the AirJet™ Massage System for a gentle massage. This spa can be quickly heated up to a blissful 40°C and features a stunning multicolour LED lighting system.
Time to celebrate new beginnings
Finally, breathe a post nuptials sigh of relief and sink deeper into the bubbles as you raise a glass to your new beginnings with the Alfresco Twist Champagne Glass (Were £4.49 now £2.99). And, as the temperature rises in the hot tub, be sure to keep the champagne on ice with this Maze Rattan Ice Bucket Side Table (Was £149.99 now £129.99). This cleverly designed luxury rattan side table comes with a concealed integrated ice bucket.
The Love Island effect
By now, you will no doubt be feeling the Love Island effect so it’s time to add some tropical finishing touches to your table for two with the Cambridge 12 Piece Flamingos Bamboo Eco-Friendly Tableware Set (£39.99). Apart from the vibrant design, this set is made from bamboo, which has exceptional strength and a natural durability - a superb alternative to plastic for the eco-friendly couple.
Eat al fresco and stay dry whatever the inclement UK weather throws at you under the Gelndale Columbus Mocha Gazebo (£249.99). For added intimacy to your candlelit dinner, you can close the curtains which are included in this versatile unit.
