Your Romantic Post-Wedding Getaway
By the end of a long and busy wedding day most couples can't wait to start their honeymoon. After months of planning every wedding detail the honeymoon is a perfect way for the couple to relax and unwind.
Nothing gets a marriage off to an optimist start than a happy, relaxing, romantic honeymoon. The couple can finally take the time to really enjoy each other's company. A honeymoon provides some much needed alone time!
Making your dream honeymoon a reality requires a lot of planning. Start planning early. The further in advance you plan the greater your options. Just like a wedding there are a lot of details when planning a honeymoon. If you're the organized type all you may need is a notebook to keep track of the details. If you're the type that tends to misplace the phone bill consider hiring a travel agent. These experienced professionals will take care of the details so you can focus on other things. Ask for a travel agent experienced in planning honeymoons. They'll often know the top honeymoon destinations - and will know how to get the best deal possible.
If you're looking to save money consider an all-inclusive honeymoon. These packages include everything for one price - hotel accommodations, meals, on-site transportation, drinks and resort activities such as tennis, scuba diving and sailing. With an all-inclusive honeymoon you can rest assured that once you're on the resort you don't have to pay for anything. Excursions can sometimes cost extra and it's always a good idea to keep spare change for tipping (makes waiting at the bar quicker).
Keep in mind that as you plan your honeymoon you're still in the process of planning your wedding. And in the hectic days just before your wedding, you'll find you have little time for anything let alone packing a suitcase. As such, most couples leave their honeymoon packing until the night before the wedding. As a word of advice - don't! You'll just be adding to your stress. Which is why we've included a honeymoon-packing checklist - packing will be easier than you think!
Chances are you'll need to fly to your honeymoon destination. Whether you're a seasoned flyer or this is your first time on a plane there are plenty of tips for flying on your honeymoon that will get you to your destination safe and sound.
