The wedding time is one of the most memorable time for both the bride and the groom, and it typically involves planning for months and sometimes, even years. Once the celebrations are done, it is time for another memorable period – the honeymoon. If you do not know how and when to start, planning and honeymoon can be difficult. So to help you out, here are some tips to take care of:
Choose the right honeymoon destination
If you choose to go with a destination wedding, you want to make sure the place you choose has romantic wedding venues. Once you have the wedding planned out, you can plan your honeymoon in the same place. If you want to leave the place you got married and travel somewhere else, you need to plan more. Make sure you choose the destination in a way to reduce the travelling time and spending more at the place, sightseeing and enjoying what it has to offer. A good tip is to consider the different offers that are available. For example, if you’re getting married in Hobart, you might look at honeymoon packages in Tasmania to go to after the wedding.
Explore Mutual Interests
Not everyone likes travelling to the beaches, mountains or cities for that matter, so it is essential to know the interests of your spouse before choosing the destination. If you both like spending time on the beach, then you can plan for some of the exotic destinations such as the Maldives right away. If you do not have the same interest, make sure to take time to discuss for a common solution. You can also combine your activities depending on your interests. For instance, if you are a history buff and a foodie, you can plan a trip to the museum followed by a dinner in one of the fine dining restaurants around the city. The possibilities to combine the activities are endless and it is fun to another level!
Do intricate research
Do not ever choose a hotel, a destination or any other activity before doing research. Chances are that you are going to choose a destination that is the first time for both of you. It would not be good to end up at the place during a rough season or land up with a room in one of the shady hotels. No matter what booking you do, make sure to do research, read the reviews and get opinions from people who have already been there.
Have a guidebook
If you are visiting a place whose local language is not the same as yours, getting the guidebook can be convenient and it sort of feeds your wanderlust feeling. Although in the era of the internet, you no longer need maps, it is always handy to have a guidebook that can store the information about places you would like to visit and contain some phrases in the local language that might be handy while communicating something.
Do take care of the legalities
If you are doing a multiple country honeymoon tour, make sure to have all visa arrangements and other legal formalities completed beforehand. Double check them before heading off to your next destination.
Have enough money in the local currency
Do not assume that dollars will be accepted everywhere. It is always better to keep cash in the local currency, but also ensure to not carry so much since you might now know how safe the place is. Keep enough cash on hand to pay for the entire day.
So, these are the tips you must keep in mind while planning your honeymoon. Do remember to follow each one of them so that you can have fun and hassle-free travel.
