A honeymoon is one of the major factors that linger in your mind while you plan your wedding! And planning a honeymoon can be really stressful, especially when there is already a wedding to plan.
Does it mean that you ruin one of the most important romantic vacations of your life? Does it mean that you just call off a honeymoon? Of course not!
One of the best parts of wedding planning is deciding with your fiancé where you’re going to take your honeymoon. Before you both choose a honeymoon destination, there are some important questions that need to be answered.
1. How long will your honeymoon last?
There’s no point in choosing honeymoon destinations that take a week long to reach and another week to return if you have only a week’s time for your honeymoon.
Hence, the very first and most important step while you are picking your honeymoon getaway is to analyze the duration of your honeymoon and pick the destination for your honeymoon accordingly.
2. What’s your honeymoon destination budget?
This is where you and your fiancé really need to sit down and speak candidly about how much you can afford to spend on your honeymoon. Transport fare, hotel, food etc. need to be considered without thinking of wedding gifts that guests may get off your honeymoon registry.
Therefore, it is one of the most important steps to take while choosing a honeymoon destination. As a rule of the thumb, pick a budget and pick a destination that is well-accommodated within the budget.
3. Where would you go on your dream honeymoon?
4. When should we go?
Another important factor that will determine your ideal honeymoon destination is the time of the year when you are traveling. While June is hot in India, it can be a great time to visit Italy. One of the most important tips for choosing a honeymoon destination is to pick a place which is favourable to travel at that time of the year!
For instance, if you’re getting married during hurricane season, it might not be the best time to travel to those tropical destinations. You can either pick a high season when the weather will be great or you can pick a shoulder season if you want to beat the crowds and have a vacation in pleasant weather at the same time.
Here is a list of honeymoon destinations by month, so you can select a place as per your wedding date.
5. What is your honeymoon style?
You can’t just press all the honeymoons into one single idea; it’s not possible. While some couples prefer a beach honeymoon destination, some love to explore a historic place, some love to choose an adventure honeymoon destination and some just prefer an urban staycation!
The best way to find a perfect honeymoon getaway is to know your spouse’s interests, find your own interests and finalize the kind of honeymoon you want to have.
It can be a beach honeymoon, a honeymoon full of adventure, a honeymoon to a historic destination or a honeymoon to a hill station!
