Getting married is a wonderful experience! One of the most fun parts about getting married is planning your honeymoon. Haven’t you always dreamed of where you’ll go and what you’ll do? Now it’s time to plan, so let’s get down to business.
The first thing that you need to do when you’re planning your honeymoon is decide on a budget. Sit down with your fiancé and figure out how much you all are willing to spend unless someone else is paying for this getaway. Oftentimes the bride’s parents or the groom’s parents will pay for it. However, sometimes you and your groom will have to foot the bill.
Once you figure out how much you’re willing to spend, decide when you’re going and how long you’re going to stay there. This really all depends on how many vacation days you both have at work. A good timeline for a honeymoon would be seven days, but if you have the luxury of going for longer, then go for it! Ask yourself whether you want to leave right after the wedding, or if you want to take a few days and then go. If you don’t have all the vacation days that you’d like to be able to use then take a shorter honeymoon and save the good stuff for your first anniversary.
Now here comes the fun part. Where are you going to go? Would you rather go somewhere close by or somewhere far away? Do you want to go somewhere tropical or to a different destination? Would you rather go somewhere secluded or to a resort where there will be couples like you? Is a big city more of your style or would you rather go somewhere more isolated? You may need to each take a few minutes to sit down separately and decide where you’re going.
As soon as you have decided where you’re going to go, you should think about speaking with a travel agent. An agent can help you book the trip and help you arrange all of the details. Then start researching where you’re going to go. Learn everything that you can about your exciting destination. For more ideas, have a look under the section Honeymoons. The more you learn about where you’re going, the more fun you’ll be able to have when you get there!
The next thing you have to do won’t be as exciting as deciding on a destination, but it’s a necessity. If you’re going out of the country, you’ll need a passport or Visa. You’ll also need to make sure your other identification documents are up-to-date. If any of them are expired, you should get that taken care of as soon as possible. Don’t wait until the last minute because things like this can take a long time, especially if your local offices that handle those things are really busy.
