It’s Honeymoon Time: Making your Post-Wedding Escape Perfect

Honeymoon Destinations

After the rigors of planning the perfect wedding, the honeymoon often comes as a much-appreciated break. While the thought of planning even one more thing may seem distasteful as you prepare for your wedding, spending a bit of time prepping for your post-wedding getaway is a must if you want to make your trip as relaxing and invigorating as possible. To make your preparation for this trip a breeze, keep in mind these simple trips:

Set your Budget – Your honeymoon shouldn’t be a budget-busting expense. Particularly if you’ve already invested a large amount of cash in the wedding, the last thing you want to do is spend the rest of your savings on an overly extravagant trip. Before you begin planning, sit down with your soon-to-be spouse and look critically at what you can afford. Setting this budget first will reduce the likelihood that you fall in love with a destination you simply can’t afford.

Explore your Destination Options – Instead of picking the first destination that pops into your mind, spend a little time exploring less-common options to improve your chances of picking the ideal place for you and your partner. While you may have always dreamed of a Hawaii honeymoon, with exploration you may find venturing out of the country a more enticing option. Or perhaps you’ll find a private spot not far from your home into which to escape, ideal if you’re on a tight budget.

Protect Yourself – Nothing turns what should be an enjoyable escape into a nightmare as quickly as an injury or illness. This is particularly true if you’re traveling outside the country, as your standard insurance policy may not cover you when you’re off U.S. soil. To ensure that you and your new spouse are covered while on your trip, consider purchasing some international travel insurance. Insurance of this type is a sound investment, as it will give you the safety net you need to protect yourself on your post-matrimonial getaway.

Allow time for Relaxation – Your honeymoon should be about resting and relaxing, not about hitting as many sites as you can in as short a window of time as possible. When planning this escape, keep the itinerary intentionally light, selecting leisurely activities and scheduling lots of time for you and your spouse to spend recovering from the taxing wedding planning process.

Plan Some Extras – Show your new spouse just how enamored you are by planning a few romantic surprises. Contact the hotel at which you’ll be staying to arrange to have rose petals spread on the bed, or plan an exotic picnic as one of your events. These little extra touches will help transform your honeymoon from just any old trip to a truly exotic and romantic getaway.

After the excitement of the wedding day has passed, you’ll need time to recover as well as to bond with the individual to whom you have just pledged a lifetime of undying devotion. By carefully planning your honeymoon, you can give yourself this time in an idyllic destination perfect for canoodling.
