Plan the honeymoon (and the wedding night!) of your dreams

You want to make his toes curl.

You want to know what real intimacy and passion feel like. 

But most of all, you want married life to feel like coming home. 

Well, I wanted that too. And my honeymoon turned out to be an utter disaster.

Sex was awkward, it hurt, and I felt like a failure.

I was busy rushing myself so that I could say that I had “done the deed” and succeeded.

I didn’t know that it was okay to relax and take your time.

And I didn’t know that I would be so exhausted!

    Me and my husband on our honeymoon

    And it turns out I’m not alone. I surveyed over 2,000 women and found this:

     

    • 20% of couples had a horrible honeymoon
    • 60% of couples had an OK honeymoon
    • Only 20% of couples had the honeymoon they really wanted!

    I found that 4 out of 5 couples don’t have the honeymoon of their dreams.

    But most people also don’t set themselves up for success!

    Be prepared with real-talk about the nitty-gritty of sex so you aren’t asking yourself,

    Am I doing this right?!”

    Start your honeymoon with anticipation–not anxiety–because you know you have all the information you need to start your married life together.

    Sheila’s writing helped me feel prepared for sex for the first time (my wedding night), and for us to feel free to explore each other within marriage.

    Put that all together, and you’ll create a low-stress honeymoon that you’ll remember for a lifetime.

    From the author of the #1 Christian book about sex for engaged women, who has helped thousands of women have better sex in their marriages.

    One of my favorite marriage bloggers is the inimitable Sheila Wray Gregoire of To Love, Honor and Vacuum. She’s been a strong, biblical voice for healthy sexuality in marriage. And she’s a great friend!

    Sheila Gregoire 400 - The Honeymoon Course! Start Your Marriage (and your Sex Life) off Well!

    Sheila’s book- A Good Girls Guide to Great Sex has transformed my life. I am getting married in August and had a ton of fear and was really in the dark about a lot of things when it came to sex. As a single woman in her 30’s I’ve spent my whole adult life directing my thoughts away from sex and avoiding the topic because I wasn’t sure if that was ever going to be a part of my life. This book is Christ centered, funny, and full of good mechanical answers and awesome “Good Girl Dares”.

    She gave me the language to use and permission to begin to discuss these things with my fiancé and other women. Sex is no longer something I fear but, with a much better understanding of God’s design physically, emotionally and spiritually, I can honestly say I’m looking forward to sex with my future husband. We’ve been able to start communicating about sex in a really healthy way.

    I’m so glad you’ve helped me begin to make the 180 turn in this area of my life long before our wedding night. Thanks Sheila for your faithfulness to the Lord and to women like me who you don’t even know!
