If you’ve just finished your wedding planning, you’ve experienced one of the most tiring experiences of your life. Now, it’s time to visualize the dream honeymoon you want to share with your spouse-to-be. Although planning for your honeymoon is less of a headache than your wedding ceremony, it is equally important because you want to plan the perfect time to spend together after the hectic excitement of the wedding day.
To help you plan the perfect romantic getaway, this article is a guide to everything you need to know about planning your honeymoon.
Decide on the Perfect Destination
Choosing the perfect honeymoon destination is the most important part of your honeymoon planning. Everybody has a different preference for their honeymoon destination; some may prefer idyllic, tranquil scenery whilst others are looking for adventurous activities with their new spouse.
There are some great adventures that are waiting for you and these tours of South America could be the perfect choice for adventurous newlyweds. The volcanic rocks of Easter Island of Chile are a bucket list site for so many people, or if that’s not your thing, how about heading to Rio for Carnival time?
No matter what kind of vacation you enjoy, the perfect destination is always worth your investment as it will help to solidify your new married bond. For most couples, an unforgettable honeymoon prioritizes plenty of opportunities for privacy so take that into account when you are choosing your destination.
Plan Your Honeymoon Together
It is really important to plan your wedding together to make sure that you are both happy and that it suits your guests, but it is equally important to plan your honeymoon together so that you can both have the best time. If you manage the honeymoon planning without your partner’s participation, you guys may end up with a trip that is more tailored to your tastes but not to your spouse’s. Your honeymoon is the first and best opportunity to kick off your life together, so plan a honeymoon where you can just spend your time cherishing every moment.
A Realistic Budget is a Must
Weddings are expensive and so your honeymoon budget may be tight. Everybody likes a different kind of holiday so the cost of your honeymoon will depend on what trip you plan.
Be realistic when planning your honeymoon. The best way to do it is to sit down with your spouse, and come up with a workable budget and make sure that you stick to it. Break the cost down into categories: accommodation, transportation, activities, and daily expenditures like food and drink. After allotting a realistic budget for everything, you’re good to move on to planning each aspect of the honeymoon.
There are always hidden costs and you don’t want them to surprise you at the last minute, so make sure everything is carefully calculated in advance. Giving up a little money for incurred expenses as a back-up plan is always a good strategy. It may seem complicated at the beginning, but a well-organized honeymoon on a budget will help you to enjoy your honeymoon and then still have money left over to start your life together.
Don’t Copy Other Couples’ Itineraries
Some friends may give you good suggestions for your trip based on their previous experiences or even give you their detailed honeymoon itinerary plan. Whilst tips are always appreciated, do not always expect to have the exact same experience. The itinerary, which worked perfectly for your friends on their honeymoon may not work for you, especially if you have a different budget or enjoy a different kind of vacation. It’s always best, to be honest with yourselves about what you truly want from this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
A Honeymoon Is Only Perfect If You’re Ready
The perfect honeymoon takes careful preparation and that goes for everything mentioned above, as well as at the time. Don’t plan a honeymoon straight after your wedding as taking some days to recharge until you both are mentally and physically ready for the trip will ensure that you have a much better time. In fact, many couples these days prefer delaying the honeymoon to figure out the best timing of the destination they have planned for. It requires you to do a little research or to ask your travel agent about the ideal time to pack your bags for the trip.
After months of working on a once-in-a-lifetime wedding, you deserve a memorable honeymoon with your beloved partner! Never overlook the importance of preparation when it comes to the perfect honeymoon. Make sure to follow this guide and you will have the trip of a lifetime.
