After the stresses and successes, the ups and the downs, the laughs and the tears that go into planning a wedding, you want to get as far as possible from that craziness and find a place totally secluded to relax and rejuvenate after the whirlwind event. No email or internet can reach you. No noisy traffic. No crazy relatives. Just you and your love. Instead of breaking the bank or feeling guilty for planning an elaborate vacation in a time when excess is frowned upon, try a driving honeymoon-You can rehash the whirlwind day in the car: what crazy Aunt Myrtle wore, that the best man's speech made you cry, and just enjoy each other's company on a roadtrip as you drive to your cabin in the woods, mountains or beach. And when you get there, just relax! Planning: so easy-sites like VRBO.com (vacation rental by owner) make planning an escape like this a breeze. Just pick a location first, there's a ton of options on this site, so it's easy to get overwhelmed. Check out these gorgeous cabins in Southern California and in Upstate New York. My recent driving trip to Wisconsin made me think how I would have loved a week to wind down after our wedding- instead, we planned an extensive trip to Italy- we felt compelled to see everything, when a week of doing nothing would've been so much more relaxing!
