Honeymooning 101

By  |  0 Comments

Organising the honeymoon can often take a back seat with all the wedding excitement, but it’s one of the most important parts of getting married. After celebrating with your loved ones, you and your partner deserve to spend time together enjoying each other’s company and having your own celebration.

If you intend to have your honeymoon soon after your big day, you’ll need to start the planning early on and at the same time as your wedding planning. You may also want to hire a travel agent if you plan to visit a place you have never been to, plus it will take the pressure off of you to do all of the planning.

When organising your honeymoon, be specific about what you want and where you want to go. If you aren’t sure, you may not end up getting the experience you’d hoped for. Once you and your partner have an idea in mind, set aside a budget for the honeymoon. Try to keep your wedding and honeymoon budgets separate; you don’t want to have to take away from one to give to the other. Going away during the off-season period will help you save as well.

Traditionally, the newly-married couple will leave straight after the wedding to have their honeymoon. But if you’ve had a long day of excitement, dancing and socialising, you can be pretty tired and might not be in the mood for a 12-hour flight to your destination. Leaving your honeymoon for a few weeks, or even months, after your wedding will allow you to get everything in order before you rush off. And that way you can have more time to save and allow yourself to prepare properly for when the time comes.

Most importantly, make sure that you and your partner are both invested in the decision-making and are happy with your choices. Give yourselves enough time to plan and sort out all the details so that you can have the romantic trip of a lifetime.
