Honeymoon: How To Get The Most Out Of It

Jun 14, 2008
Nearly every waking moment of your last year has been consumed with the many details of planning your wedding. It might feel overwhelming to try and plan something else right now, but don't overlook planning your dream honeymoon. Your honeymoon is an opportunity to savor your first few days or weeks as a newlywed. It is a vacation with the purpose of unwinding after your big day, and getting some rest and relaxation with your brand new spouse. It might be the biggest trip you ever take, or if you are lucky, the first of many such journeys.

The first step in your planning process is to think about if going on your honeymoon immediately after your wedding makes most sense for you and your honey. You might need some extra time to bank more vacation days, or even to bank the money you need to treat yourself to your special honeymoon trip. Many folks also feel that they become quite tired after a weekend of celebrating, and prefer to save the big honeymoon for a few months down the road when it can be savored for all its worth.

Once you select the timing if your trip, your next thought might be to selecting your destination for your honeymoon. Before you pick that destination, think a little about your vacation style. Do you prefer to spend the majority of your vacation relaxing, sitting on the beach or by the pool? Or would you rather spend your time on your honeymoon being active, trying new sports or sightseeing? Of course, many people like a combination of both options, and like to alternate between relaxation and exploration. You and your beloved might have different vacation styles, in which case you will want to think about how to best compromise so both of you will enjoy your trip.

Now that you have your vacation style, you are ready to start exploring honeymoon destinations. Consider taking advantage of an all-inclusive package. These pre-packaged trips might seem expensive at first, but once you factor in lodging and food costs, they are oftentimes a good value. Compare the costs associated with staying at a hotel, and purchasing your food and drinks separately, and you will often find that all inclusive will be a better deal, in addition to assisting in your honeymoon relaxation because you won't have to constantly fork over dough for your meals.

In addition to the packages provided by resorts, consider trips offered through travel agencies or interest specific travel organizations. If you are interested in being active on your trip, there are many companies that offer trips designed to entice the hiker, kayaker, biker or sailor. There are also many companies offering trips to entice folks with a variety of hobbies an interests, such as wine and food enthusiasts, shoppers and artists. There are an infinite number of these trips available for your honeymoon, so there is no doubt that one will be just right for you and your sweetie!

Wherever you decide to go on your honeymoon, make sure you take lots of pictures. Just imagine, years from now your grandchildren will love to hear about the first trip you and your wife took as a married couple!
