Planning Your Honeymoon

Holidays For Couples has put together the 5 things to consider when planning your honeymoon…
1. Set a Budget
It's true, the honeymoon can be just as expensive as the wedding itself. But if you're short on funds but big on dreams, there are plenty of destination options that offer affordable accommodation and activities without having to board a plane or put yourself in debt just to eat out every night. If your budget does extend further, and a more luxury experience can be had either here or abroad, still give careful consideration to where the hidden costs may lie - after all, the more money you can put towards the daily extras like dining out, shopping and sightseeing, the more memories you will be bringing home with you in your new life together.

2. Choose a Destination
Do you want an exotic destination where you drink away the hours sipping cocktails on the beach and swimming in crystal water, or a more intimate getaway to a vineyard, mountain retreat? Perhaps an adrenalin packed honeymoon on the ski slopes is more your style. Or is it a simple camping or touring itinirary that meets both your tastes and budget ideals? Choosing the right destination for your honeymoon should come down to what you, as a couple. Look at your individual and mutual tastes, and try to choose a destination that meets the divide for you both. 

3. How will you book it

Surf the internet, call travel agencies and collect brochures about the city, country or island that you are wanting to visit. Gather as much information as you can and get more than one quote on airfares and accommodation before deciding on the package or deal that's right for you. And be sure to leave yourself enough time! 

4. Packing
The clothing you will pack will depend entirely upon the season of your chosen destination. If you will be flying, you may want to have something warm handy for those cold airport stopovers and air conditioned long haul flights. Also think about what medications you should take along with you and don't forget to pack your camera and battery charger. 

5. Don't forget your transport
Make arrangements for transportation to and from the airport if you'll be flying in to your honeymoon spot, to ensure it's a smooth entry and exit to your honeymoon. And if you will be staying a while, it may be good idea to book yourself a hire car to get yourself around in and see all the sights and places in your own time, at your own pace.
