First off, let me congratulate you on these exciting times and this journey that you are about to embark on. I am sure you have been thinking about this upcoming season of your life for a while now, but now it is time to set it in motion. It can be stressful planning both a wedding and a honeymoon at the same time while making sure every little detail is just the way you’ve always dreamt of. I have created a 3-step process for you to follow to ensure that you have the perfect honeymoon with your new partner.
- Discuss the details
There is so much to decide during this time that is best to designate a time to sit down with your partner and decide on the following things. Decide on the dates. You may want to fly out the night of your wedding or maybe you want to wait until you have some time saved up to take off work. Decide on where. You may need some guidance as to exactly where you want to go, but you should decide if you want to relax on the beach in the Caribbean or if you want to hit the slopes in Colorado. Do you want to stay domestic or travel internationally? Lastly, you need to set a roundabout budget. This does not have to be exact, but you both need to discuss what you plan on spending.
- Find an expert that fits your style
It is now time to put all of the ideas that you have been looking at on Pinterest into reality and this can be overwhelming. I suggest utilizing a travel agent that you feel is the best fit for you and your partner for many reasons. It is important that they know what you are looking for in a honeymoon and that they provide just that. Once you find your travel agent that you will be using you will be able to relay what you and your partner have discussed in step 1 and they will work with you to plan your perfect honeymoon. Your travel agent will be able to find you the best deals, most personalized amenities, and manage all reservations.
- Get ready for your perfect honeymoon
Now you have discussed it, planned it, and it is now time to get married and board the plane! It is important to make sure that you have not forgotten to pack anything so check your list twice and your travel agent may throw in some reminders. It is important to remember that this vacation is for you and your partner to spend some quality time together so don’t try and overbook yourself. Make sure you make the trip all about relaxation and romance with your new partner.
