It needs a lot of planning and preparation. In fact, if you want to have a hassle-free and enjoyable honeymoon, then you must consider these 8 essential things noted below. No, no do not worry, we are not here to scare you but just to help you out in planning the best honeymoon trip. 🙂
Create a budget: As we keep saying make a budget first. This is one important step for the wedding planning, whether you book a banquet hall or you find a caterer or you plan your honeymoon. cateSit with your partner and decide on how much you can afford to spend. Make sure you consider each and every aspect of the trip when making a budget. What we mean by this is include all the expenses right from the airfare or train cost to accommodation, food, sightseeing and shopping. Often times, we dream for a particular destination and then find it beyond our reach after compiling the budget. But we do not want you to face the same, so we always advise you to create a budget first.
Decide destination and check its climate: Now when you are done with the budget and know how much you can spend, decide the destination. You can go to a mountain region or can go to the beach – the choice is yours. But check the season once before fixing a place because there’s no point going to a destination where there’s chilling cold or scorching heat. So, do a detailed study of the climatic conditions of the places and decide accordingly.
Leave from work: Leave from work is a real concern nowadays. Talk to your manager and work out about the leaves. In fact, do it before deciding the destination because it might be the case that your boss is not willing to approve you a long holiday. So, find out how many days exactly you will get leave from your work and then plan the rest accordingly.
DIY or Travel Agent: Decide whether you want to plan the trip on your own or you want to take help from a travel agent. In case you decide to go for the latter, then do not delay to contact the agents and take quotations as they often close the deals early during the peak season.
Do extensive research: And in case, you decide to plan the trip on your own, then make sure that you do an extensive research on the internet. Study about the place well, find out about their culture, food habits, things to do and see. Also, go through the visitors’ reviews whether the place is safe to visit for a newlywed couple.
Do not copy paste: You might find out some people among your friends and relatives who have already visited the place. You are most welcome to take advice from them but do not copy paste their entire travel itinerary. That’s because if they have enjoyed certain activities not necessary that you will enjoy them too. Moreover, a honeymoon trip should be personalized and tailored in such a way that it complements both of your personal choice.
It’s a honeymoon and not a tour: Honeymoon is the time to find out each other in true sense of the term. It’s the time to spend exotic moments with your partner that you both will cherish forever. So, do not fill the trip with a lot of hectic activities. Your partner might not be someone who likes to laze around on the beach day in and out. In that case, choose a place where you can indulge in some light activities during the day time such as cruise ride, fire balloon ride or safari and relax at night.
Create a wish list together: Last but not the least, create a wish list together for the honeymoon plan. Decide together whether you want this trip to be adventurous or just relaxing. Also, list down the priorities together whether you want a private bar in the room or you want a bath tub. This is to ensure that there’s no dissension between you and your partner on the trip.
