After all the hard work of wedding planning is over, it is time to plan the fun stuff, the honeymoon! Talk to your significant other about what their dream destination is and see if it matches what you had in mind and if it fits within your budget. For some top tips, continue reading:
Don’t cut corners
While we have all become experts in booking trips online using a number of flights and cheap hostels. The honeymoon is not the time to show your skills. If it goes wrong on any other holiday it is a funny story, if it goes wrong on your honeymoon it is a disaster. Spend that little bit extra to go through a travel agent to ensure everything will work out and that if it doesn’t, at least it is not your fault.
Choose your budget first
Try to choose your budget first before falling in love with an idea and trying to find the money to make it work. By choosing your budget and how long you can honeymoon for, you can already cut out a number of options and make your choice that little bit easier.
Don’t forget the romance
Perhaps you love adventure, the unknown, an active lifestyle. Your honeymoon can cater to all of these things but try to include a little bit of quiet time to be with your new spouse. This is the moment where you get to surprise each other one more time with something special. So go bungee jumping in New Zealand if that is what you want to do but save some time towards the end for the usual massages and pampering. Even if it is not your style it will be a romantic treat for you both.
Plan your honeymoon early so that your budget is not blown on flights alone and leaves you some spare cash to spend on activities and meals.
The most important thing is that you take the time to research your honeymoon in detail. Don’t leave anything to chance or wing it. The honeymoon is not the time for gambling (unless you choose Vegas, which is a really cool idea too).
