The process of planning for a wedding, pining marathons and even the main ceremony itself can be taxing even though it is an exciting endeavour for many.
However, there is no denying that taking the ultimate trip as newlyweds is something everyone wants and looks forward to. However, picking that ideal honeymoon destination is not always an easy task. There is a lot that comes into play and you need to consider things like the style of the trip, weather as well as the budget. To help ease the selection process, we have laid down a few handy tips.
What’s Your Ideal Destination?
Before you book your honeymoon, thinking about the location is obviously the first step. Traditionally, couples go straight to the honeymoon right after the wedding day, but some people prefer to wait until the wedding is entirely out of the way, maybe a few weeks or months later. This gives them the needed time to get rid of the overwhelming stress of the entire wedding process as well as adequate time to save for the honeymoon. So, think about when you’re getting married, as well as the weather in the destinations you are considering.
How Far Are You Willing to Travel?
For someone who resides in the UK or Ireland, New Zealand may sound like an excellent honeymoon destination. It has breathtaking views and scenery, but if you just have two weeks and the flight is almost a day long, not forgetting time difference and jet lag, you may want to reconsider. When looking for honeymoon destinations in your favourite countries, you should keep in mind how long it will take to arrive.
What’s Your Budget?
How much you are willing or can afford to pay is perhaps the most important thing to consider when you are choosing honeymoon destinations. It is always wise to determine how much you have to spend one something before you begin your research journey. This will save you time, frustration and disappointment when researching destinations and hotels for your honeymoon. Consulting stag and hen companies such as The Spain Event is always a good idea as they would have a really good idea on the local prices and the different things to do in the area.
What is Important to You?
Whether it is a culture infused, beach honeymoon or a break for the hassle and bustles of the city, it is always advisable to discuss how much touring activity you would like during this special time. If you like seeing many sights or are into the idea of exploring a new city, it is a great idea to consider spending a few days on the beach for a little rest and recuperation to get rid of the stress from the wedding.
Consider Several Destinations
If you are on the fence about spending time unwinding and relaxing on the beach and a sightseeing adventure that’s action-packed, then you should think about combining various destinations and resorts into a single elusive honeymoon that suits the both of you. Taking the multi-centre honeymoon route will give you a chance to explore both worlds, splitting time to visit more than one destination and resort.
Will You Require Any Jabs?
If you are travelling overseas, you should think about what jabs you will require before entering the country of your choice. Your jabs will need to be booked by appointment at your practitioner and usually need to be done in advance before you leave. As such, it is imperative that you keep this in mind when making your plans for travelling. Ideally, you should consider whether you will need to take any Antimalaria drugs which usually need to be taken a few days prior to departure as well as seven days post travel.
Consider the School Holidays
Taking into account the school holidays as well as the destinations that allow families and kids is just as important as considering the weather. Trips to many destinations are usually more expensive. Not only that but if you go for your honeymoon during this period, you lower the chances of having the ultimate adult-only romantic time.
