Planning Your First Holiday as a Couple


As you already know, because I mention it in nearly every blog, tweet and Instagram, Josh and I are going on our first mini holiday together in September.

I thought I’d share our tips and tricks for getting the most out of your first holiday together!

Hope this helps!


What length of time is best?

That’s completely up to you. Josh and I have planned a getaway for a weekend because that’s only what we can do at the moment with work and university.

I know there’s a saying that the first holiday you go on together makes or breaks your relationship but that’s a load of bull. If anything, holidays are a good test to see if you can live together…that’s what Josh and I are telling ourselves anyway, ha!


Location, location, location…?

We’ve chosen quite a smallish location where we won’t be bombarded with kids and families, I think I found quite a good deal as we’re going just after the schools go back!

Again, the choice is yours but I do suggest somewhere like Center Parcs with lots of breakout zones where you can just chill and enjoy each other’s company.


Little things to remember…

For each of our little escapes, I plan to take a disposable camera so Josh and I will have memories that won’t be broadcast all over social media.

Most importantly…HAVE FUN!


See you on Wednesday!

Lots of love
