Make sure your first trip as a married couple is as perfect as you planned

Honeymoon Planning Fails – That beautiful beach and just you and your newly betrothed. Bliss, right? Hopefully, but honeymoons are surprisingly easy to get wrong. Here’s the how to honeymoon planning guide to get off to a long life together on the right track.

Plan Together

It’s tempting for one of you to take on the honeymoon planning while the other books the band and caterers. Plan together and you’re more likely to get what you both want from your trip. 

Beach Blues

Organising a wedding can be stressful. While the idea of flopping on a beach might appeal, it may prove harder to switch off than if you start with something urban or active for a few days to wind down. That said, a little luxury to start things off rarely strikes the wrong note. 

Dream Honeymoon

If you’ve always dreamed of lemur-spotting in Madagascar or kayaking in Alaska together then you’ve got the perfect excuse to go. Just because the beach break is the stereotypical honeymoon planning idea, doesn’t mean that it’s right for you. 

Travel As A Gift

Friends love to contribute to your honeymoon planning. Ask them to help you out and instead of them giving you a gift of a toaster or a set of teaspoons, you can ask them to contribute to your honeymoon expenses. Many travel companies – and some dedicated services – offer wedding registries that make great alternative gifts. 

Once Your Away

Adopting a new surname post-wedding? Make sure any bookings that you make before getting married match the name on your passport. 

An Upgrade or Two?

Most honeymoons aren’t paved with endless upgrades, but dropping into conversations at airports and hotel check-ins and in fact most places offering you a service is a great idea. It is also a good idea, that once you have made your bookings, you can send emails to hotels asking for upgrades or things to make your stay with them more memorable – it’s worked for me, why wouldn’t it work for you. You’re only on a honeymoon once – you might just find it opens a door or two, or gets something additional thrown in along the way.
