From the day of your proposal, you will spend weeks – even months – planning for the perfect wedding. You can work on this with your bride-to-be, or, as a bargain, you can just leave it to her and your coordinator while you take care of planning a honeymoon you both will remember for the rest of your lives. Here is a guide on planning that honeymoon to perfection.
Base your plans on your history
You probably know your partner better than anyone else, so this should be easy. Nevertheless, make sure you get the right ideas by consulting with her regarding her preferences. By knowing what your partner wants, you can make better decisions about where to go and what to do when you get there. Recall some of the things you’ve done together that made her very happy, or some long-unfulfilled wish she has that you can give her on your honeymoon. Also, consider your personalities and whether it suits the activities you plan to do on your honeymoon. Remember: honeymoon isn’t just about going to someplace new, it’s about enjoying yourself on your stay there.
Make sure you pack everything
Not every preparation yields perfect results, but organizing your things ahead will save you from too much stress. List down your honeymoon itinerary, including all your travel information and relevant contact numbers, and give copies to the people close to you either by e-mail or print (or both). Complete your handy bag (maps, toiletries, keys, passports, visa’s, reservations, tickets, medicine kit, and secret stash of money). Don’t forget to inform your fiancé what outfits to bring, but keep other information as a surprise.
Make a complete, detailed itinerary
You’ll want this to be a very special time for your partner, so settle things ahead and plan with your budget and schedule in mind. To have the perfect honeymoon, it would be best to plan everything down to the minute, but also allow for flexibility. Mark the dates and time of your departure and return flights, make a list of things you intend to do on your honeymoon, and arrange everything with where you’re staying and your means of transportation. Lastly, make a contingency plan, in case things don’t go as you intended. Consider the possibility of bad weather, flight cancellations and other unexpected circumstances.
Check out the best destinations
Of course, you need to be smart in deciding where to go. Look into the best times to visit different places, as rates and the popular activities there may change depending on the season. If you want to be safe, you can go to places like Hawaii or the Caribbean, which have an even climate throughout the year and offer a myriad of hotels, beaches, spas and other leisurely amenities. There are many, many places where you can go and have a great honeymoon. Here are seven we’ve picked for you:
