If you’re knee deep in the wedding planning and you don’t even know where to start when it comes to the honeymoon, you need our Top 5 Honeymoon Planning Tips: The Do’s & Don’ts, to make planning that postcard perfect honeymoon a little easier. We know that nailing down all those little details for this once-in-a-lifetime getaway can be stressful. Relax, we’ve got you covered, and check out our tips below!
Don’t let “deals” be your guide.
Do let your budget be your guide.
There is a difference between being deal driven and budget conscious. Look for a honeymoon package that is a good value, not a good “deal”. Compare the benefits, amenities, and features, not just the price.
Don’t be fooled by flawless pictures.
Do work with a travel planner that’s actually been there!
We all know that looks can be deceiving, so don’t rest your honeymoon plans on a handful of overly-photoshop’d images. Instead rely on a real person that has actually been there. Someone that can give you that insider, first hand experience of what dishes to try and where’s the best spot on the beach.
Don’t wait until the last minute to book your trip.
Do book early for best availability & value.
Some boutique resorts or unique room categories fill up a year in advance. And the cost of airfare increases as your travel date approaches. So, when it comes to booking your honeymoon, the earlier the better! Many resorts offer early booking incentives and most packages don’t require final payment until 6 weeks prior to arrival so you’ll have plenty of time to pay off your trip too!! Not to mention, that it just feels great to mark things off the list, right?!
Don’t rely on non-humans or strangers for travel advice.
Do work with a real person that understands your honeymoon dreams.
Where do you get your travel planning advice, suggestions, & inspiration? From a real person that has walked on the beach, ate in the restaurants, slept in the beds, and that you can actually talk to. Or do you look to a machine (with absolutely zero emotion) for generic photos and extremist reviews to help you make an emotional decision, your honeymoon. Find a professional travel planner to work with, our team at Destination Wedding Experts are with you before, during, & after your honeymoon giving you one-on-one attention and making the entire process as stress free as possible.
