Decide on your honeymoon budget
Before you start looking around at suitable destinations, it is extremely important to plan out your budget. If you do not, then you could get into trouble of over expenditure or heartbreak. Usually, combo deals and packages tend to be cheaper as they would contain a total cost including air tickets, transportation costs along with the hotel charges giving you a better chance of deciding if it is within your budget.
Deciding the Destination
We all have that list of exotic places we’ve always wanted to visit, but honeymoons are different. They need to have the right amount of fun and intimacy with a dash of adventure. Plan your dream destination keeping in mind of each other’s likes and dislikes.
It is important to check with the weather conditions of the location you are planning as extreme weather conditions could mess up your trip and your mood.

While it is a great idea to plan out your honeymoon, try to sneak in some surprises for your spouse. It is always better to plan out the full-day activities with each other, but adding a couple’s massage or adding a special dinner for your partner in the agenda is a great way to add some excitement in your holiday!
The honeymoon is the time to spend special moments together so make the best of it. Take pleasure in small things, explore around, do something new and while you learn more about your spouse – don’t forget to make good use of your room’s “Do Not Disturb” sign. Once the honeymoon is over, it’s back to routine with work, family and other affairs so make as many memories as you can.
Pack before the wedding and plan out your wardrobe
If you are planning to visit a warm, sunny or beachy places – shorts, sunscreens, and sunhats are a must have for your trip. Weddings are generally exhausting and you tend to dump in the wrong items in your suitcase at the last minute. By packing in advance, you have the opportunity to pack accordingly including that sexy bikini hiding in your wardrobe. Also, don’t forget to pack evening wear for the romantic dinners at the restaurants and some fun time at the theaters and clubs.
Another essential tip is to make sure to keep a first aid box handy with bandages, antiseptic cream and any medicines you regularly take.
After you’ve told the world that you love each other, the honeymoon is a time to give each other the same message in a more private setting. It is the first and last time you’ll ever be together this way and no matter where the location of the honeymoon is or the timing, remember that it will be perfect as long as the both of you are together.
