Budget & Time Frame

First, plan out your budget accordingly. Many couples cut their budget from honeymoon to spend a little bit more on weddings, and some of them get into debt to make it the most exotic moments of their life. Your honeymoon will allow you time to bond during this blissful time in your life. You may not have another opportunity to take the vacation of your dreams, so why not splurge a little.

Then there's the debate on whether couples should go just right after their marriage or wait for the perfect time when there budget suits well. There are no hard and fast rules when you should go on a honeymoon. If you have saved enough money for the honeymoon you both desire, you can go right after the wedding. However, if you think that it will be too costly, there is nothing wrong with waiting for a few months when things align with your budget.

Plan dates, venues, restaurants, parking spots, and vehicles ahead of time. Collect all the necessary information regarding your flights and visas. By scheduling all the things, you will surely know how many days you're going to spend where you will go and how much money you're spending. Sounds overwhelming with everything else you have to do? Then make sure to reach out to a travel profession. A small fee between $100 and $250 is worth the 30 hours or more it could take to plan all of this yourself.

Plan Together

Begin early and share the planning with your significant other. Decision making is a crucial part when it comes to honeymoon by making all the decisions together; you will enjoy the planning process a lot more.

Your honeymoon will be an opportunity for you to slow down and take the time to embrace your romance. Your honeymoon is very different than the wedding ceremony, which may be overwhelming, chaotic, and rushed. On your honeymoon, you can schedule activities you both like. By doing this, you will have ample time for yourselves to understand each other better.

How to choose a destination?

Be specific about what you want then narrow down your list of destinations accordingly. It can be an exotic resort on an island well-known for its tourist attractions. Or you want to visit a foreign country where you don't even know its language and want to explore its culture, traditions, and history. Sit down with your partner research honeymoon destinations and figure out what you want.


Splurge on whatever accommodations you choose. No matter what type of vacation package you want, you will spend an enormous amount of time in your room or cabin. Make it special to make it unforgettable.

Use your maiden name. Unless you are taking a delayed honeymoon, you won't have time to change the name on your passport and driver's license. Use your maiden name on visas, airline tickets, etc., so they match as it appears on your official documents.


Resorts are the most popular honeymoon destinations; you will get into another world for a miraculous escape from the daily routine. Often set in the most mesmerizing locations in the world, including pools, golf courses & private beaches along with culinary delights and soothing spas.

An all-inclusive resort is a great choice where one has not to worry about the room, transfers, recreational facilities, meals, and drinks as they are all available in one price. You don't have to worry about each, and everything encounters the most exotic one of a lifetime experience.

If you don't want to be stuck in a location and would like to travel often, then consider taking a cruise. Cruises are floating resorts that whisk you away from one exotic port to another.
