How to plan your perfect Honeymoon
The first thing to consider when planning your honeymoon is your budget. If you find that you can not afford the holiday you would like, maybe defer your honeymoon to a slightly later date, giving you more time to save some money. Alternatively make the honeymoon a part of your wedding gifts. To do this you can either add a travel agent to your gift registry or use a collection well, with all the money going towards your dream honeymoon.
If you decide to defer your honeymoon, keep in mind that your ‘honey’ phase might be over by the time you take your holiday and you are more in a routine phase, so your holiday will feel different. Don’t feel pressured into having ‘the best time ever’ and simply enjoy the time with each other.
If you start your honeymoon immediately after your wedding, don’t plan any activities for at least the first 2 days, to give you time to relax and unwind from the stresses created by organizing the wedding.
Here are some points to consider when planning your honey moon:
Make a good nights sleep your priority on the first night after the wedding. Rather spend the next day in bed if you like.
Tell everyone that it is your honeymoon – you’ll be surprised how many little extras and upgrades you will get.
Be prepared for mishaps and do not let them spoil your honeymoon. The best way to avoid problems is to be well prepared and to have contingency plans (ie, pack extra medicine in a different bag, have spare money, write down all important phone numbers, make a copy of your passport etc.)
Less is more – do not try to cram too much into your honeymoon. If you want an ‘epic’ holiday, definitely wait at least a couple of days (or months!)
Do not leave major unfinished jobs at home. They might not spoil your holiday too much, but they definitely spoil the homecoming.
Rather than sightseeing, plan activities together, like dancing, massages, listening to a sexy playlist, watching a sunrise, take boudoir photos, and order in.
Buy travel insurance – make sure your wedding rings are included, many rings have been lost while swimming in the ocean.
Before booking an overseas honeymoon, check what the weather will be like at the time you will be there. No good being on a tropical island during hurricane season.
Make sure your travel documents have the same names as your bookings, especially flights.
Minimise your beauty routine
Keep your social media sharing to an absolute minimum, best to turn your phone off completely. If you are a social media junky, rather post your preparations, that way you might get some good input from friends who have been to the same places.
Honeymoon planning should always be a joint effort, but do schedule in a few little surprises for your new partner.
