Honeymoon Planning Do's and Don'ts
One of the most exciting aspects when it comes to organizing our wedding is undoubtedly the planning of your honeymoon. We imagine that destination that we have dreamed to visit; A romantic getaway with the love of your life, with whom you have decided to share the rest of your life. You would think: what could go wrong?
The reality is that it is essential that we organize and take into account various details to ensure that our dream getaway does not end up with a few hiccups or we have to face situations we did not expect. Here are some tips on what to do and what not to do to make our honeymoon as perfect as your have always dreamed:
- Plan your honeymoon well in advance: this includes talking with your partner about the destination, how many days and what activities you want to do. Do you want a romantic and quiet getaway, or a journey full of adventure to remember all your life? The sooner you decide, the better.
- Learn everything you can about the selected destination: Laws, languages, currency changes, seasons of the year ... all of this is important to take into account. The more familiar you feel with your destination, the more likely you will focus on enjoying and the better you will develop in the place.
- Organize your budget: Calculate your budget based on person and per day, leaving enough money available to handle unexpected situations. We recommend a budget of about $ 100.00 dollars per person per day. Of course, this is enough money, but it is always better to be safe than sorry.
- Acquire travel insurance: it is a small investment that will save you a lot of money in case of unexpected cancellations or medical emergencies. Again, you want to run the least possible risks on your honeymoon.
- Discuss your options: Is organizing traveling your own travel not your preference? Contact a travel agent, who will arrange your travel arrangements for you. On the other hand, if your adventurous spirit was one of the things that made you fall in love, and wish to put it into practice once more ... go ahead, to organize your own journey!
- Do not travel without letting your family know your destination: we know that the honeymoon is a time of escape and we want to be in complete solitude with our partner, but it is always prudent to let at least a family member / trusted friend know where we will be staying , Or which places we will be visiting.
- Do not leave the documentation arrangements (visas, passports) for the last minute: as soon as you choose your destination, it is the first thing that must be processed. If you need passports or if the country to visit requires a visa application in advance, these procedures must be done several months in advance. If you already have passports, it is important to make sure that they have at least 6 months of validity for the date of your trip.
- Do not forget to keep copies of all your documents: this includes passports, plane tickets, excursion payments, reservations, and any documents that are important should you have to make a claim. Do not forget to also have extra copies to leave with a family member / friend of your choice.
- Do not forget to enjoy the best moments of your life: that first getaway as a married couple will be a very special moment and will not be repeated. Organize yourself beforehand so that when the date arrives, your focus is to enjoy each other and have a spectacular time.
