Weddings. Beautiful, amazing weddings. Many people love to visit them, love to plan them and love to enjoy dancing at them, too. Weddings are beautiful occasions full of love and affection, and the bride and groom have many stressful months as they plan their weddings to the last detail. The one thing that they don’t stress too much over is the honeymoon at the end of it. Spending months seeing family and attending fittings, arranging flowers and more is difficult but that booking of the best vacation you will ever take in your life? Well, that’s exciting if nothing else!
The thing is, in all of the arranging of the wedding, the honeymoon is often left to the last second. You can do it differently by having your groom and his family planning and arranging the Bora Bora honeymoon of your dreams, or you can start thinking about how you can arrange the perfect honeymoon for you both without any other input. While weddings are a collaborative effort, the honeymoon is all about the bride and groom finding a couple of blissful, work-free and stress-free weeks together. There are some tips you need to remember for your honeymoon, and we’ve put them together for you below. You can have the honeymoon you’ve always dreamed of having, and you can do it without forgetting anything along the way. Let’s dive in!
- Choose A Budget. Honeymoons are not always cheap and nor should they be. If there is going to be one giant vacation that you take in your lifetime, it’s your honeymoon. No children with you, just the pair of you finding each other and getting to know each other. It’s the vacation you want to pour your money into at least once and choose for the top luxury destinations. From around the world tours to cruises and safaris, your honeymoon needs to be against the budget that you choose.
- Discuss What You Want. Make a list of what you envision for your honeymoon – both of you – and come to a compromise. If one of you likes sports and one of you loves the sunshine, then a beach honeymoon with plenty of water sporting activities are the way to go! If one of you loves exotic food and the other loves seeing the city, then a city-hopper honeymoon would suit you both! Marriage will mean a lot of compromise for you both, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing!
- Choose A Location. From Bora Bora to the Maldives, your honeymoon destination must reflect the budget you have. It doesn’t matter if you choose to camp in the woods or you choose to cruise the Caribbean; choosing a location has to match your money.
- Get Help. It doesn’t matter how much you know about your honeymoon and what you want, you need help! Speak to a travel agency who knows what they’re doing. They may have discounts and money-off options that you can benefit from to have the best holiday ever. A travel agent also can ensure that you can get everything absolutely right and not forget much at all!
- Make A List. All of the travel documents that you need for your holiday should be listed properly so that you don’t forget anything. Some destinations require you to have a passport and the tickets ready for boarding, so make sure that you list everything in the correct order in which you need it! Make sure that you have printed your visas and passes before you enter each country and if you’re travelling the world, you need everything in the correct order for that, too!
- Tell Everyone You’re Honeymooning! From the accommodation to the airplane staff, choose to tell everyone that you’re on honeymoon. It’s rare that you’ll get favours from everyone but there is no harm in trying, right? You may get a nifty upgrade if people know you’re celebrating your love.
- Stay Private. Don’t tell anyone your honeymoon plans before you go. Let it be a secret so that you don’t have your dream honeymoon splashed on with cold water. Destination honeymoons are beautiful but everyone has an opinion and it’s not always a good one!
- Bring More Cash. No matter how much cash you think you need, bring more. Your money can run out really quickly and you won’t think about it until you get there and you don’t have enough.
- Make It About You. This break isn’t just a honeymoon. It’s your entrance into marriage and your life together and you should focus on just the two of you!
