You love to hike and be outdoors and he would rather nap under a beach cabana, but you both love food. Focus on what you both love. Look for all inclusive honeymoon packages with five star dining. Chances are you can find amazing food at a resort with a tropical location for him and lots of outdoor excursions for you. When you find your common ground you can define your “couple’s personality” and knowing that will make all the difference when deciding on your destination.
2. Decide what your budget is and stick to it
You may have already decided on your honeymoon budget during your wedding planning. But if not, now is the time to make this discussion. Look at your frequent flyer miles, or ask family to donate theirs as a wedding gift. You can even utilize our honeymoon registry to get help with the cost. Whatever you decide, when you land on a number make sure you’re committed to it. The last thing you want is to be thinking about credit card debt while you’re on your honeymoon. Finding a good honeymoon planner can help keep your cost down and they can even end up paying for their fees in the savings they can get you from unpublished airfares and long-standing relationships with resorts and hotels.
3. Figure out how long you can stay and when you want to go
Maybe you know you want to take a tropical cruise but your wedding date is smack in the middle of hurricane season. Or, maybe you want a five-day honeymoon package but you can’t find one for the resort you want. Decide when your want to take your honeymoon and how long you want to be away, then talk to a honeymoon planner to see what the seasonal deals are and if you can book a custom designed package for the exact days you want to travel. Flight itineraries and seasonal deals can be tricky to coordinate, but a professional will know what flights to take and what locations are offering the best deals during every season.
4. Get your travel documents in order
If you’re planning an exotic honeymoon you need to know exactly what travel documents, visas and passports are needed and how long it will take to acquire all necessary paperwork before you book your trip.
5. Find your professional honeymoon planner
You may be a do-it-yourself guru, but some things are best handled by a professional. Planners know how to create the most efficient flight itineraries and have access to unpublished deals you can’t find online. Maybe most importantly, honeymoon planners can provide a virtually stress-free honeymoon. They deal with problems before, during and after your trip so you don’t have to.
6. Make sure to stay healthy before your trip…and during your stay
It’s important to check the traveler’s vaccination requirements for travel to certain locations. Check with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) before your trip. The CDC website also has water-quality lists for all destinations. Your professional honeymoon planner will provide all this information for you as well as information on your specific resort or hotel’s water filtration system.
7. Follow your packing checklist
