5 Tips to the Honeymoon of Your Dreams
Your honeymoon is not only an integral part of the celebrations of your new identity as a married couple but also an excuse to get away from your normal day-to-day routines and venture out to start conquering the world together! Yet, with all that is involved in the process of tying the knot, adding on planning a honeymoon can make things extremely overwhelming. But not to worry! I’ve got you taken care of!
Check out these tips for an unforgettable honeymoon experience:
1. Plan in advance
It goes without saying that the months and weeks leading up to your big day will be insanely intense, so please don’t put yourself through the added stress of now trying to make decisions on your honeymoon. I recommend beginning to discuss your honeymoon ideas with your partner as soon as you can. It’s important for me to mention to not think of your honeymoon as being something separate from your wedding, but rather the cherry on top! And contrary to what most people believe, last-minute deals aren’t always the best. Sure, you may get the last room to be booked in a hotel for a few bucks less, but it can also be the darkest and the tiniest with no views! Planning ahead gives you the luxury of getting exactly what you want.
2. Be sure you include your honeymoon into your budget
It’s easy to plan a lavish wedding and forget about the honeymoon when in the real sense, that’s the single most important part of your life together as a couple. But unfortunately, the honeymoon budget is the first thing that most couples compromise on if
unexpected wedding expenses arise. So, here’s my advice, come up with a budget you both can agree on for your wedding, and then be determined not to start dipping into your honeymoon fund.
Here’s the thing, if you can make every detail from the wedding to the honeymoon oozing with opulence, that’s perfect. However, if it’s a ‘one or the other’ scenario, then really consider saving on your wedding and splurging on your honeymoon! Because whoever said, “I wish we hadn’t taken such an amazing honeymoon”? Said no one ever!
3. Be flexible with your itinerary
Many couples are tempted to settle for a spur-of-the-moment itinerary, but this oftentimes results in unnecessary stress, plus results in missed opportunities to truly experience the destination. Other couples have so many places they want to visit and things they want to do that their romantic honeymoon turns into nothing more than a race to check things off a list. I don’t know about you, but neither of these seems like the honeymoon I’ve been dreaming of. Instead, why not have a list of a few things you know you’d really like to do but keep an open mind to the fact that you may arrive at your destination and want to do nothing but sit by the pool. The entire wedding process can be very draining, so I really recommend aiming for a sweet balance. Consider incorporating a few adventurous activities but being sure you’ve set aside plenty of time to just kick back and relax!
4. Consult a Romance Travel Specialist
A romance travel specialist can make a huge difference if you involve them in your honeymoon planning process. They are there to guide you through the entire process. All the way from helping you with the tough decisions like where to go and where to stay to alleviating all the stress of how to make it all come together into one seamless itinerary.
Plus, they are there to share invaluable details about the best places to visit as well as making bespoke vacations that will make your escape unique and truly memorable.
The level of service offered is definitely a little price to pay for the amount of stress they will take off of your shoulders, especially if you’re already worn out from planning the wedding itself.
5. Plan your honeymoon together.
Going on your first vacation as a married couple requires a team effort and demands coming
together to make major decisions such as choosing a destination, activities as well as budget. This means there will be a few compromises to be made, but it’s also one of the best ways to nurture a bond as a couple even before the honeymoon begins.
Both parties should have their voices heard and it’s the perfect time to prove how well you two can work together as a pair. With just a little preparation, a bit of compromise, and the helpful guidance of a Romance Travel Specialist, there should be no reason your honeymoon is anything less than your dreams depict!
