Honeymoon Planning: Tips To Have The Trip Of A Lifetime

Sharing is caring!

Honeymoon Planning

Your honeymoon is one of the most important trips of your life. You want it all to be nothing less than perfect and for you both to enjoy your time together.

The following tips will help ensure that you have the trip of your lifetime and all goes smoothly from start to finish. Have fun with it, and plan ahead at work so you can completely disconnect while on your trip.

After planning and having a big wedding, you want to have something exciting to look forward to, and a trip together is the ideal way to relieve some of your stress and enjoy each other’s company.

Start Early

One tip for planning your honeymoon is to start the planning and preparation process early. Take the time to research possibilities for where you might want to travel to for the perfect honeymoon experience.

Discuss options as a couple and come up with a list of choices you both agree to, and then narrow it down from there. Think through what activities you might want to do and if you prefer to stay in one place or hop around a bit to see more.

Set a Budget

The last topic you want to talk about on your honeymoon is money and how much different parts of the trip cost. Leave this conversation for a time when you two can sit down together as you plan your trip and talk about how much you want to spend. Set a budget, so you’re both on the same page and know how much you want to contribute to the trip and how much you want to set aside for spending money once you arrive at your destination.

Budget a little extra in case you decide to splurge or surprise one another with a fun dinner or activity while on your honeymoon.

Find Ways to Make it Romantic

Another tip when planning your honeymoon is to find ways to make it a romantic trip and strengthen your love and connection. For instance, there are Ohio hot tub hotels you can visit and stay at and share a bottle of champagne in a romantic setting without having to leave your room. You might also want to schedule a fancy dinner at one of the best restaurants in town and get dressed up one night, and have a romantic meal together.

Create A Loose Itinerary

If you want to have the trip of a lifetime, then you’re going to want to have an idea of what you’re doing each day. You want to ensure that you aren’t wasting a lot of time figuring out how to spend your days when you arrive. Plan ahead but also make time in your travel itinerary for some rest and relaxation. For instance, you might want to have an adventure or go sightseeing one day while the next you might want to sleep in and have a lazy day by the pool.

You’ll have fewer arguments and disagreements about how to spend your time when you figure these details out loosely before you depart.

The bottom line: After months of wedding prep, your honeymoon should offer some much-needed relaxation and quality time together and may be one of the biggest trips you’ve taken together so far. While it sounds heavenly, sometimes the task of honeymoon planning (on top of wedding planning) can take a stressful turn. 

While it is great to work side-by-side with your significant other to plan your honeymoon, try to sneak a few surprises in there, too! Pricey or full-day activities are best to discuss as a duo, but adding a couple’s massage into the mix or scheduling a special dinner they might not know about in advance is the perfect way to add a bit of excitement to your romantic—and hopefully memorable—honeymoon vacation together.
