Weddings are usually planned for a year before the big production occurs. The honeymoon is part of wedding planning and belongs on the timeline. Depending on how big or small your honeymoon ideas are, this romantic event could be planned simultaneously from the beginning or about six months prior to your wedding day. Not every romantic adventure takes you away to secluded beaches, Paris or Rome. Whether you will be stamping passports or planning a little closer to home, we have tips for planning your honeymoon.
The biggest question on the table is all about the destination. Where should you go? Before you begin researching travel deals, think about the experience you want to create. Your circumstances will probably make a few decisions about your plan. The budget seems to always win. The amount of time you have available for a getaway is another important factor that takes control. Think of destinations and activities that will create the meaningful adventure, while agreeing with all the controlling factors. If you find yourself juggling with the balance of time and budget, the best honeymoon destinations are near your wedding venue. If you choose an all-inclusive wedding venue surrounded by beaches and nightlife, you can save thousands on planning your wedding day and have the wedding and honeymoon you want.
Travel deals are everywhere. Finding the best deals requires a little research. Exploring several travel websites can help you plan. You should also explore any savings available when you book directly through the airlines. Bundles can provide savings when the package includes the hotel and transportation. Travel agents still exist, and can help you research the best travel deals. Apps are the biggest craze, and sometimes the biggest way to save. Here is a list of a few of the best travel apps for planning the hotel and flight.
You will probably not want to remain in a hotel room for the entire honeymoon. Research the area to create your exciting adventure. It could be a restaurant that is almost impossible to get a reservation at or an excursion you always dreamed about. Create an itinerary of all the activities you want to explore. If you book a cruise, it will include activities and entertainment on the ship. Research the ports and create an itinerary for activities while at shore.
An all-inclusive honeymoon resort is perfect for a couple that wants to spend their honeymoon relaxing at the resort, drinking and engaging in hotel activities. Beachside hotels can provide amazing views and the ambiance of an exotic island that keeps you connected to the coastal city. You can indulge in fine dining and arrange couples massages in an onsite spa. If you are the type that loves to explore, you might want flexibility with your package to exclude activities that might be wasted while you are out exploring the promenade.
Cruises create a nonstop social event in a confined space at sea that is not for everyone, and can send some over the edge of stir-crazy. You will never know if you love the cruise scene until you try it. It is not recommended that you take your very first seven day escape at sea without testing out the adventure beforehand. A cruise usually offers activities, such as gaming, dancing and swimming. The adventure takes you to different ports and offers the opportunity to explore different places during timed shore excursions. Cruises are not created equal. They offer different types of experiences. A travel agent can help you explore options. You can also download cruise apps to find the experience you want.
Departing on the Honeymoon
As the evening wedding becomes a popular trend, setting out on the honeymoon adventure becomes delayed. Instead of running away for the honeymoon just after the wedding exit, couples are hesitating a day to begin their travels. If the flight is scheduled to leave a day later, make sure you plan the wedding night somewhere special. Let a one or two night stay in a local resort become part of the adventure. You can plan couples massages in the hotel spa and indulge in delectable chocolates and strawberries in a king bed.
Notes for Traveling
Never hesitate to plan your honeymoon. A honeymoon is usually planned simultaneously with the wedding. You should consult with a travel agent or planner far in advance to explore the best options and rates. Choose your hotel, packages and flights a few months in advance. Plan an itinerary for everything you want to experience on your honeymoon. Check travel guidelines and advisories. If required, apply for or renew passports, research foreign entry requirements and visa requirements, and arrange for required vaccinations. Create a checklist to help you pack for the occasion.
