This could be your first time on a honeymoon or you could be a repeat offender. These mistakes are easy to avoid when you are planning the honeymoon. Don’t let these common mistakes ruin what is supposed to be a milestone trip for you and your spouse!
2.Leave The Day After The Wedding
Yes, you are so excited and ready to go on an amazing honeymoon however leaving the day after the wedding is not the best thing to do, especially if you have a night time wedding. Give yourself some time to rest the day after your big day. Aside from the dancing and celebrating you are going to do this is an emotional day. You are going to be exhausted. Being exhausted on your honeymoon does not go over well when you arrive at your honeymoon suite that is all set for romance. Give yourselves a day to recover, breathe and not have to worry about waking up early to catch a flight! Leave the next day.
There is a time to splurge on vacations and a time to save on vacations. Honeymoons are a time to splurge! This is it…this is the start of your happily ever after. You deserve the honeymoon of your dreams. If money is an issue consider prioritizing what you are spending on the wedding. Do you really want to spend money on the guests or on you? Consider adding a honeymoon fund to your registry to help with expenses
You can go online and book plane tickets, hotels, honeymoons and all sorts of travel but why do it yourself when there are professionals that do this for a living and know the rules of the airlines, the lingo of the hotels, they have knowledge of planning travel for clients. They guide you, consult with you and more importantly they work for you. They will manage your expectations and make sure you get what you expect. They want you to have a wonderful experience. Do some research but when it comes to booking a trip of this importance, have a professional do it. Piecing together flights on your own to Greece for your honeymoon that does not have legal connections can lead to unexpected fees, flights being cancelled and problems along that way on a DIY honeymoon can easily lead to a first fight as husband and wife. This is not how you want to start the honeymoon, arguing because you are arguing with the front desk that you did book an ocean view room and the front desk is insisting that your room is an ocean view. You simply have to go to the balcony on the right hand side, lean over the rail only 6 inches and you can view the ocean.
Investing money on an amazing honeymoon is worth it once you know you have made the right choice. Protecting your investment, your time and yourself is the next smart step. Travel insurance is highly recommended. Life happens. Flights get delayed or cancelled. Hurricanes come. Family members get sick. Luggage gets lost. Accidents happen. Being in a hospital in a foreign country is not a fun experience. Travel insurance protects you and has representatives available 24/7 should something happen while you are traveling. Saying…”we are definitely going on our honeymoon so we don’t need to buy insurance” are famous last words. BUY THE INSURANCE.
6.Not Going on One
Or you say you will go on one later, and then later becomes, “lets just go on our one year anniversary”. Did you know that researchers have a proven statistic that if you do not take a honeymoon the first year of your marriage then you are at a 40% HIGHER risk of divorce!
