Being a once in a lifetime trip, choosing the perfect place to spend the honeymoon is one of the toughest decisions new couples make while preparing for their wedding. In fact, it comes before any other thing, as the honeymoon is the most important thing right after the wedding.
The honeymoon is a trip turned into memories that becomes a story years later, thereby making the honeymoon planning stage one of the toughest for some couples.
In order to go through this phase with little or no stress, here are five tips to ensure you have the smooth and perfect honeymoon you have always dreamt of.
DETERMINE TRIP LENGTH
Before anything, determine how long your honeymoon trip would last. This comes first because some other things would depend on the length of the trip. Like the budget. Also, some factors would also help determine the length of the trip. For instance, work schedule. Once you are able to agree on how long you want your honeymoon to last. Then it’s time to pick a theme and a place.
CHOOSE A THEME
Are you both inspired by the same things? For instance, do you both love historic sites, wildlife, adventure, road trips? Or are you more of the beach and tropical cocktail couples? Whatever the preference is, this would help you envision how you spend your time together. And if you both have different tastes, then it only gets better as you can both try out different thing and add some spice to the trip. For instance, if one of you enjoys historic sites, and the other enjoys a lounge on the beach, then Greece is just one of the places to consider for your honeymoon as it has a perfect blend of historic sites such as the Acropolis in Athens, and the perfect beach day on Santorini island.
ANALYSE THE SEASON
Before you go finally decide on the honeymoon destination, ensure you give many thoughts to the season of the country destination. Consider the crowds, local customs, and potential weather disruptions. Selecting a place like Italy for a honeymoon during this summer would mean sizzling temperatures, exorbitant prices, and massive crowds. But, in August, many towns in Europe look good for a mountain trip or a good day at the beach.
SET A BUDGET
When you have decided where you would love to spend your honeymoon, it’s time to put a price on it. The length of your trip and the destination already puts you on a right track to knowing how much you would be spending. All that matters most is that you have the best honeymoon experience that keeps your heart warm each time you remember.
CONSIDER THE CONVENIENCES
Finally, pen down a list of the amenities and services that are absolute must-haves for both of you. Once you’ve compiled the list, search for hotels and destinations that only include those top items.
Once all these have been settled, then you can be on your way to your post nuptial vacation.
