A honeymoon is a great way to continue celebrating your marriage and start your life together as a couple! This is the holiday you have been looking forward to, after months of wedding planning and preparation. While some couples choose to postpone their honeymoon, I encourage couples to start planning it as soon as they start planning their weddings, and spend their honeymoon right after the wedding.
Planning for where to go:
The number of honeymoon destinations is endless. What type of place do you desire to visit? Does the exotic island suit your imagination, or is it a delicious cup of tea to spend a week skiing in the mountains? Or how about a cruise to the Caribbean Sea? Write down the places you have always wanted to go and decide where to match your future husband’s lists! When you think of locations, keep in mind the season maybe you want to consider a Caribbean escape at the height of hurricane season!
Planning for what you want:
Do you want a week full of fun and adventure or a quiet, relaxing, and rejuvenating holiday? Or a bit of both? Once you have narrowed down your destinations, you need to discover what activities are available to you there.
When should I start?
Just as there is a schedule for planning a wedding, there is also a timeline for planning a honeymoon! So these timelines must be combined with each other.
Set a budget for your honeymoon. This should be included in your general wedding budget.
If you are traveling internationally and do not have a passport, get it now!
Consider buying travel insurance. Because packages can cover things like flight cancellation and baggage delay. Like wedding insurance, travel insurance can give you quietly of mind and defend you from the unpredicted.
If you plan to spend frequent flyer miles, start plan early. Note any faint dates that may be appropriate.
Use an honest travel agency to plan your honeymoon. Travel agencies that specialize in honeymooners are the best because they have established relationships with resorts and destinations and can sometimes give you special advice and even good extras.
