Making plans for your honeymoon
The honeymoon period is important for newlyweds. It is during this period that you get to decompress after long and tiring wedding planning months and after the big day itself.
Often, the biggest headache for the honeymoon is the budget. The amount of money you have or that you can raise through friends, determines how much you can spend for honeymoon and your honeymoon destination.
Here are a few tips to help you enjoy the period before, during and after the honeymoon.
Plan and plan some more
Your honeymoon is one of the highlights not only of your wedding but of your life. To have a memorable honeymoon, it is important that you plan well.
Decide beforehand what you want for your honeymoon. You may decide on having an adventure or romantic honeymoon. With this in mind, you can now decide on your destination. Do you want to be on a beach or in the country enjoying lush greenery and the naturally clean air?
Planning how much you will spend for your honeymoon beforehand is also essential and will help make this period as memorable as possible.
Intimacy and privacy
In as much as you want to enjoy the outdoors, honeymoon is a special time for newlyweds. During this time, you want to spend as much time together and enhance the emotional bond that the two of you have built over time, to this moment.
Choose a hotel or resort that will ensure that you get lots of privacy. For example, a hotel honeymoon Bali, ensures that you have your own private villa for the honeymoon. You do not even have to leave your room since you have a butler at your service for the duration of your stay.
Plan for the off season
Hotel business is highly seasonal. There are periods of the year when hotels are very busy and others known as the off season. During the off season, you are able to have the best of service and rooms in the hotel.
On the other hand, the hotel busy season overwhelms hotel service and all you will remember about your honeymoon is how full the hotel you were was.
In addition, during the off season, hotels charge slightly lower for their services enabling you to make good savings and even have a longer honeymoon.
Have all your travel documents ready
If you will be traveling abroad for your honeymoon, it is important that you have all the travel documents ready by the time of your wedding. Have your visa ready for wherever you are traveling to and have a return flight booked.
Go for an all-in-one package
If you have a hotel wedding, make sure you inquire on whether they offer honeymoon services. Financially, this package can help you save up on honeymoon costs and you will enjoy high quality service.
It can also be a stop-over honeymoon to just relax and catch your breath after a day of merrymaking and celebration. Enjoy a few days here before traveling to your honeymoon destination.
Take lots of photos
Remember to carry a camera or have enough space on your mobile devices to capture photos of the lovely moments that you will experience together. Pictures will capture your memories better and will remind you of the fun times you had.
Consider each other’s needs
When planning a honeymoon, it is important that each of you take into consideration what your partner wants to have an enjoyable honeymoon.
Seek for a destination that will provide both of you the enjoyment of the honeymoon.
Alternatively, you can plan for two honeymoons to get what each one of you needs to have an enjoyable honeymoon.
Go to uncommon places
When planning your honeymoon, look for destinations that are not popular honeymoon destinations. Often, the popular destinations are overcrowded and you may not enjoy your time there.
Discover equally breathtaking and cheaper locations and enjoy a much better honeymoon.
Who knows, your time there may make it a popular honeymoon destination for others.
