5 Honeymoon Planning Tips

You have been deep into wedding planning, but your honeymoon has been on the back burner for the past few months. There are so many brides who are focused on their dress, the flowers, the photographer, and the music that they forget about planning the second most exciting part of their wedding: The honeymoon. Here are a couple of tips that will help you along the way


1. Plan your honeymoon early


Do not wait until a few months before your wedding to begin planning your honeymoon. The cost of flights and hotel rooms generally increase closer to your honeymoon date. Planning your honeymoon early can help alleviate the stress of a expensive honeymoon. You can usually purchase a flight for your honeymoon 9-10 months before travel. 


2. Make a list of what you would like to experience on your honeymoon


When choosing a destination consider whether you would like to go hiking, spend time by the beach, go sky diving, go snorkeling, or experience unique food tastings. All of these things can affect your honeymoon destination. Also, the destination should reflect you and your significant other. If you know that you like to eat local food do not honeymoon in a location that is riddled with tourists traps that does not serve local cuisine. 


3. Make a budget and stick to that budget!


Take some time to discuss how much you would like to spend on your honeymoon. Your budget should be realistic. Try not to overspend or break the bank on a honeymoon experience. Consider setting up a honeymoon fund if you would like guests to assist with the costs of your honeymoon.


4. Use a travel agent


Did you know that a travel agent can book your honeymoon at no cost to you? A travel agent can alleviate the stress of planning your honeymoon by helping you pick a location and activities to do while you are there. The travel agent can book your flight, airport transfers, activities, and research experiences popular with the natives of your location. 


5. Time for a package deal


Book your hotel and your flight together for a package deal. If you book the hotel and flight separate there is a possibility that you will miss out on a good package deal.
