Congratulations on embarking on a new life with your other half! It's important to set the right tone with just the right honeymoon that will let you deepen and enrich your new marriage from the get-go, setting the stage for the rest of your lives together. Whether your interests lie in urban culture, dreamy beaches, adventurous mountains or jungles, or whatever, it's also important to put in enough planning to make this important trip go off without a hitch after you get hitches. So here are four things you should keep in mind when prepping for your honeymoon:
Begin Planning as As Soon as Possible
Whether you are setting out immediately after the wedding or you're delaying it a bit, start your booking at least five months before departure. This will not only save you money but also get you the best choice of accommodation, flight dates/seats. and so on. And it goes without saying that it's best when possible to avoid peak seasons to avoid crowds and higher prices. Some couples plan their weddings/honeymoons to coincide with low or shoulder seasons, while others simply work around the issue.
Get on the Same Page
This might seem like a no-brainer, but in quite a few couples, one partner does most or all of the honeymoon planning. But this isn't the greatest idea, and has the potential to lead to conflict during the actual trip when the other one becomes unhappy with some or other aspect. Honeymoons are all about harmony, and the best way to achieve it is for both to have significant input into the planning. You can also sit down and agree on the main points and goals of the trip and have a trustworthy travel agency put together the actual logistics.
Come Straight to the Point
I can't stress this one enough. Don’t go on day-dreaming about where you want to go or what you want to do, but rather take the bull by the horns and get to planning as soon as possible, or you may end up finding your options limited - a recipe for disappointment.
Always Set a Budget
This is the most vital aspect for any trip, be it a honeymoon or anything else. But when it is a honeymoon people expect the budget to exceed. You try not to go beyond the expected and make this clear to your travel agent on the very first day of planning. Do not treat it like a honeymoon; instead, plan it like a general vacation together. If required, ask for some extra arrangements like room décor, cake, or champagne. Celebrate in your own way and hotels need not know this as they tend to raise the price if they get to know it’s a honeymoon. For the right price of your trip, stick to your budget while
Plan a Surprise for Your Spouse
Whether it's an unexpected bottle of Champagne, an impromptu excursion, show, spa treatment, or whatever, throwing in a little surprise or two will delight your partner, make him or her appreciate you even more, and create one extra golden memory for the first big trip of your wedded life together. Definitely a winning move!
Congratulations again, and cheers to an amazing married life!
