Honeymoons are actually more exciting than weddings, as they involve you and your other half spending your first few moments alone together as husband and wife. It’s a very personal time and marks the beginning of your lives together.
Your honeymoon can be a dream come true, but it can also turn out extremely nightmarish. Therefore, proper planning and preparation are crucial to ensuring that nothing is left to chance. Here are some of the tips and tricks to have that perfect honeymoon:
Discuss and pick a destination early
Honeymoons don’t necessarily have to involve romantic candle-lit beaches. It boils down to what you and your partner enjoy. For example, if you are both fans of a certain sports team, you may want to visit that team’s home city. Alternatively, if you’re both history buffs, a heritage city may suit you both better.
Start saving up
Apart from saving up for your wedding, you’ll also need to save up for your honeymoon, which is equally important. Plan a rough budget by calculating the airfare, lodging, meals, transport, entrance fees and other expenditures you may incur, and then determine how much you need to save each month until your planned trip.
Don’t waste another minute, book now!
Booking hotels and flights are really easy nowadays, with plenty of online sites where you can purchase tickets and pay for hotel rooms. You can even read a tonne of reviews from previous customers so that you can be absolutely sure you won’t be conned, and that you get the best deal out there.
Mix it up
Rather than just staying in one place throughout your honeymoon, try to stay at different cities or towns. Balance out your trip with activities in the city and off the beaten track with more outdoorsy stuff. Go on a couple’s bike tour across the countryside, or mountain climbing and white water rafting.
Plan a surprise
Surprise your partner during the trip by secretly planning an unexpected sunset viewing or dinner on a rooftop. What’s even better, call their company and extend their leave so that both of you get to spend more time together.
Get some professional help
If you feel overwhelmed having to plan for your honeymoon as well as your wedding, you might want to consider outsourcing your honeymoon plans to a trusted travel agent. However, make sure you communicate clearly what you want and check on the planning progress from time to time.
Make awesome memories
