honeymoon planning

When most people think of a honeymoon, they imagine a relaxing getaway. A relaxing trip requires some advance planning and good research. If you and your fiancé are in the planning stages for your honeymoon, check out our tips to help you have the best trip possible.

Do Your Research

Everyone has a different vision of what the perfect honeymoon should be. You need to take your interests into account when doing your research. A tropical island might be the best location for one couple while a big city could be the better for another. Some people want to be active while other wants to be pampered. Look for what each destination has to offer you and you’ll find the perfect fit.

Use the Experts

If you’re having a hard time planning your honeymoon on your own, an expert will know good recommendations and the best deals. A travel agent can help when you’re planning the trip from home. Once you’re on the trip, use the hotel concierge and tourism offices for advice.

Book Activities in Advance

After you’ve done research you should make sure you’ve booked excursions, tours, and other activities in advance if they need to be. Otherwise they could fill up and you may not be able to participate. For the most part it’s okay to arrive and see what the area has to offer before booking any activities, but certain ones need advance booking. A rule of thumb: if there’s something you really want to do, book it in advance.

Know What You Want

Do you like being in a large group, or do you prefer having a more private tour experience? You’ll want to check out the size of excursions and other trips. You could find yourself with a large group of other people, and if you want privacy that isn’t ideal. However, if you enjoy meeting new people it might be fun to mingle with other travelers and possibly do activities together.

Pack Properly

Once your trip’s been set and you know some of the details, you can start thinking about what to pack! If you’re doing adventurous activities, bring the proper attire and footwear. Going to fancy restaurants? Pack clothing that is acceptable for their dress codes. And if you’re mostly spending time on the beach, bring lots of sunscreen and swimwear.
