How to Plan the Perfect Honeymoon

Filed under: Honeymoon,Honeymoons,Wedding Tips — Larry James @ 10:30 am

A lot of people would agree that your wedding day is one of the most important, emotional, and happiest days in a person’s life. However, it’s at the same time exhausting and tiresome. That’s why newly married couples dream of a perfect honeymoon to start right the next day after their wedding ceremony. Tired of pre-wedding preparation and the long day of receiving gifts, they can’t wait to get away to some nice place and spend a wonderful week or two with their soulmates.


But here’s a tricky part: not only the wedding day itself requires planning and preparation but so does the honeymoon. You need to think of the right location, choose the best hotel, book tickets, and pack your bags in advance. So here come some important questions. What are the best practices of honeymoon planning? Are there any tried-and-true tricks to ease the process? Just how well in advance should one start planning?


As experience confirms times and times again, early booking helps save newlyweds a lot of money. That’s why it might be reasonable to start searching the right travel package for a honeymoon as soon as you’ve chosen the perfect diamond ring and decided on the date of the ceremony. According to statistics, the majority of people book their honeymoons at least 4 months in advance. This way, they can save themselves a lot of time and nerves. As most of the people prefer the same destinations for honeymoon (the most popular spots are Mexico, Caribbean, Maldives, and Hawaii), the best hotels tend to be booked before you even know it. That’s why planning things in advance helps get the best room in the best hotel in a chosen location.


Larry’s Tip:  Don’t plan to leave on your honeymoon immediately after the wedding. The wedding and reception may cause extreme exhaustion. It’s a big day. The honeymoon is very special so give yourself a couple of days (or more) to rest. Open gifts, write “thank you” notes, sleep late, rest and just be together. When you are fully rested, go for it! Don’t worry about not being able to take a big fancy honeymoon. You have the rest of your lives to make money and take big, wonderful, fabulous vacations. But you only get “one” wedding. Do it well and be happy.


Also remember to leave your hotel accommodation details (room and phone number) and itinerary with your family so they can contact you in an emergency. Don’t take your cell phone. Give it it’s own vacation. While your cell is recharging its batteries, you can do the same. This is a very special get-away for only the two of you.
