After your wedding, the most exciting thing is your honeymoon. Most couples look forward to a relaxing time together, crashing on an exotic beach with martinis, watching the sun go down. If that sounds like yourself and you truly want to be relaxed on your honeymoon, fret no further. Take my advice on how to plan a honeymoon in the best way and save yourself from any kind of stress or overwhelm:
1. Plan Your Ideal Honeymoon
Congratulations! You’re married now and that means making plans and taking decisions together. As a couple, envision the perfect honeymoon and jot down all the ideas you both have. You’re two individuals going on a vacation together and you’re bound to have different interests.
Find common activities and then the possible destinations for your honeymoon. This step is likely to cause road bumps, but once over, you will be well on your way to planning a honeymoon you’ll remember for a lifetime!
2. Choose the Best Date
It’s important for you both to enjoy the time together. Talk about dates and select one for your honeymoon that best suits both your work schedules. It may or may not be the right time to go just after the wedding and that’s okay. Find time on your calendar where you’re both free of professional commitments so you can truly enjoy each other.
While you’re discussing dates, also consider the weather conditions for the locations you’ve listed. For instance, you definitely don’t want to be on a beach in Mexico in winter. As a couple, choose a time that works best for you both.
3. Set Aside Time for Relaxation
When you’re planning a honeymoon for yourself, you want to make sure you haven’t over-planned the activities. Ticking things off your bucket list and exploring everything at a new destination might be your agenda, but it’s also important to block time off just to relax.
You may want to leave days in the beginning or middle empty to just have time for each other. A packed schedule can leave you exhausted. So make sure to plan your activities wisely with considerable time in between to unwind.
4. Talk About Your Budget
Your budget decides where you can be planning a honeymoon and what activities you can book for. Most couples consider their honeymoon a once-in-a-lifetime experience and thus want to splurge while others may have a different approach.
Talking about your budget will further clarify your honeymoon goals and give you a roadmap to plan it all out. You should also consider the budget for unforeseen expenses and keep almost 25-20% extra of the amount planned.
5. Consider Partial Upgrades
Whether you’re planning a luxurious trip or a really basic one, here’s a good tip to consider. Take partial upgrades. This means you could find a good discount deal on one thing and splurge on another. Some couples like to take the cheapest flights but book the best activities. Consider your preferences when planning a honeymoon for yourself and stick to them.
