Planning a wedding can stress out even the most organized of people and the honeymoon is the much-needed relief from all of that. But most couples tend to give less attention in planning their honeymoon in favor of making sure everything else is perfect for the wedding, which is great but you still need to make sure you don’t do your honeymoon wrong. Here is a guide to at least help you be aware on the shoulds and shouldn’ts. These are some Not-To’s you need to take note of after you say the “I Do’s”.
We all know that planning a wedding can take up all your attention. Make sure to set up a budget for both the wedding and honeymoon separately. That way, you can get the grasp on how much you’re going to spend and what you need to make changes with both for a good compromise.
This is something you need to avoid. Making last minute plans for the honeymoon will stress you out more. You need to set up an itinerary for your planned honeymoon because that way, it allows you to be attentive of your costs for every planned activity on your itinerary. With that set, you have something to follow by and that can prevent you on making any more last minute changes.
It’s a common misconception that having a travel agent means your travel expenses will be more expensive. That’s not the case. Having a travel agent can help you gain knowledge on great deals and discounts which can mean that you can get those rooms for a great price. Other than that, having a travel agent can help you save the worries and hassle on researching possible prospects because they already have insider knowledge on the best deals and destination choices.
To avoid ill-timed bookings, it is advisable to book your honeymoon at least six to eight months earlier. Check up on great packages months prior since there are varieties offered within a certain time period. There are great deals on bed & breakfast with a large hotel mattress perfect for you and your spouse-to-be. That way, you will be able to pick early on great options before those premium rooms are actually taken because last minute planning can really leave you with low quality rooms. No bride or groom deserves less on their honeymoon, right? By doing so, it also helps you plan ahead and with budgeting between the wedding arrangements and honeymoon plans. Definitely saves you from headaches later.
It may be because of the fact that the wedding (you’’ve stressed out on months of planning) is done or that you happened to be called Mr./Mrs. that gives you the thrill of leaving and going to your planned escape and enjoy the next few weeks with your spouse; but it would be more worthwhile to take a rest for a few days, to take it all in and catch your breath from the post-wedding happiness before you venture out for the honeymoon.
For most couples, they usually go for the adventurous route which is “Let’s book for the night and wing it”. And you may admit that it is the normal spontaneous way of travelling, remember that your honeymoon isn’t just any normal vacation. It is a transition that should be memorable for both of you and your spouse as you start your new life together as a married couple. You and your spouse deserve the perfect wedding as well as the perfect honeymoon!
