You’ve gotten married and are spending your next few days in married bliss, so what next? It’s time to plan the honeymoon if you haven’t already, but if you have, then perhaps that’s the next date you’re looking forward to. Whether you’ve planned it for immediately after the wedding or a few months down the line, here are some tips to plan your honeymoon.
Set A Budget for Your Honeymoon
Just like a wedding, the honeymoon is likely to be one of your most expensive holidays because when it comes down to it, you want to make it a memorable one. It’s a special occasion and therefore, an opportunity to splurge a little or a lot, depending on your financial situation. When it comes to your honeymoon, it’s definitely worth setting a budget so that you know exactly how much you have available to spend. Some are fortunate enough to be able to pay for their wedding and honeymoon all in one go, whereas some may only be able to put down a deposit or down payment on the honeymoon to then pay it off later towards the actual honeymoon itself. Whatever your budget is, it’s important to outline this before you start looking at your options. Having a budget will limit your options to what you can only afford, and that way, you’re not going to overspend and potentially get yourself into any or more debt.
Start Planning Your Honeymoon Early
When booking a honeymoon, it’s definitely worth starting early. There can be a lot of benefits with booking early, like saving money on flights and accommodation. It also helps when it comes to securing activities or stays at places that might be more sought-after and requires you to book far in advance or to be put on a waiting list. That being said, for a Hawaii honeymoon, make sure you’re starting your plan early and that you’re booking everything in as soon as possible.
Look At Your Bucket List
A bucket list is something that most of us have when it comes to travel destinations that we wish to visit at some point in our lives. If you’re wondering where you can go on your honeymoon, then it’s worth consulting your bucket list. This can be helpful in understanding what you both have on your list and which one is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go to. A bucket list will certainly make picking a place easier.
We went to Iceland for our honeymoon! We loved it so much we went back 2 more times for fun and then we ended up going for a 4th time because we booked a wedding to photograph there!
Plan The Honeymoon Together
A honeymoon is a trip that will probably be your first as a married couple. Therefore, make sure you’re taking the time to plan the honeymoon together and not simply one of you. The reason for this is that you may differ in your opinions on doing certain things and ensuring you both have an equal amount of enjoyment when it comes to the holiday itself. Make sure you’re taking the time out to sit down and plan the honeymoon together.
