Tags - Planning Your Perfect Honeymoon


In many respects, planning a honeymoon is a walk in the park after the rigours of arranging a wedding day and, to be honest, it’s a lot more fun.

What’s not to get excited about? Travelling the world with the love of your life sounds like bliss but there are a few simple steps to follow to make sure your dream holiday goes to plan.

Hopefully, this short guide helps you with some practical tips, inspiring ideas and expert insights into planning the perfect honeymoon for you and your partner.

Step 1: Choose Something You Can Both Enjoy

These days, many couples choose to celebrate tying the knot by embarking upon a luxurious escape complete with palm trees, sand between the toes and cocktails by the pool. This isn’t for everybody though, and taking stock of the activities you both enjoy will make for a much more unique, personal and memorable honeymoon.

For instance, for those who love nothing more than exploring the cultural highlights of a new place, a city-break might be a perfect choice.

On the other hand, thrill-seeking couples with a taste for adventure might choose an action-packed getaway and opt for a honeymoon centred on sports, such as a ski trip to The Alps, climbing a mountain, or kayaking remote regions of the planet.

Whatever trip you choose, make sure it works for both of you.



Step 2: Location, Location, Location

When it comes to planning a honeymoon, the location is going to dictate much of what you can get up to while you’re away. So, choose wisely.

If you’ve decided on the kind of activities you’d like to do during your getaway, it’s time to choose the perfect location. As a few hot on-trend examples, St Lucia, Santorini and Thailand are all popular honeymoon spots offering travellers tantalising insights into far-flung cultures and the chance to explore new surroundings.

Before you book anything, make sure you’re both on the same page and choose a location that works for both of you. Check out this guide from the experts at Brides for some ideas on where to honeymoon in 2020.




Step 3: Create a Travel Itinerary

As a newlywed, you’ll be only too aware of the need for planning and preparation when organising a big event, and a honeymoon is no exception.

Let’s face it, this isn’t the most exciting piece of advice but creating a solid itinerary means you can be sure that you make the most of your trip of a lifetime.

So, create a list of all the must-see attractions and sights that you simply can’t afford to miss out on and plan your time accordingly.

Top tip: Pencil-in some rest-days too, so you’ll have a chance to relax, put your feet up, and unwind. After all, it is a holiday.

Step 4: Treasure the Memories

A honeymoon is a truly special occasion and the memories of your trip should be cherished for years to come.

For instance, many newlyweds choose to capture their happy moment in time with photographs and video. So try to think of a unique way to document your first holiday as a married couple.

In fact, you might want to consider making a photo album or even starting a blog page to share your holiday with those back home.

Alternatively, you might prefer to just switch off and live in the moment and snap a few low-key selfies with your new spouse.
