There is no such happy feeling as your wedding to someone you love. And when it comes to the gift you want to surprise your spouse with, a honeymoon vacation is the best thing. If you already have a city or country set in your mind to visit, great! But if you don’t, you must plan it now.
There are plenty of bustling cities, pristine beaches, and majestic mountains worldwide that you can choose from. As a couple, narrow down the options that truly reflect both of you and where you would want to return on future anniversaries.
It is up to you to decide if you want your honeymoon packed with adventurous activities or relaxation times; in a colder region or summer sun. Once you are clear on your preferences, you become less overwhelmed and make a terrific destination choice. Here are five expert tips to guide you for better –
- Ask Your Partner’s Vacation Choices
It is good to know or ask your partner what kind of vacation he/she enjoyed in the past. Was it skiing, hiking, lounging on the beach, or exploring urban cities? Note down what you both used to or would love to experience together. Even if you have different tastes, find a way where you can combine your preferences.
- Set Your Budget
You cannot travel to your dream, luxurious honeymoon destination without the right budget in hand. You might be splurging big on the ceremony itself, so the cost of the honeymoon should not be taking a toll on your finances. You wouldn’t want the beginning of your married life in debt. So, be realistic as to how much you can spend.
- List Down All Possible Options
When you are done planning the budget, it is time to let your imagination go to work. Think of all the beautiful countries where you have never been but match your needs. Look for travel blogs and itineraries online to figure out what you both can do on this one trip. Also, decide the number of destinations you want to visit.
- Decide Your Timeline
You do wish to stay on your honeymoon trip for as long as you can; however, personal and financial obligations tend to bring you back to the reality of life. So, you and your partner must figure out how many days you both practically have for the vacation. If you have 2-3 weeks, then you can opt for any location. But, with just a week off, a nearby city is a wiser option.
- Buy an All-Inclusive Vacation Package
When you choose an all-inclusive honeymoon vacation, there is almost nothing to worry about. Your basic needs involving lodging, food, drinks, snacks, activities are included in one price, and you can book it independently. You do have to make arrangements for your flight tickets and your local travel agent can be there to assist you.
