As a Romance Travel Specialist, I believe your honeymoon is just as important as your wedding—maybe even more so!—and, to help you plan and enjoy the honeymoon that best reflects the two of you, I’d like to share a few of my top honeymoon-planning tips:
Know Where To Go
A honeymoon is all about the two of you. So don’t pick a destination because it’s known to be romantic or because it’s trendy or because it’s a good deal; pick a place that best reflects you. Be open to anywhere in the world—from a European city to a Caribbean island to a cruise around Alaska—and be open to surprises. After I get to know you, I might recommend a honeymoon experience you’d never considered (or never even heard of!) based on your shared preferences and interests.
Know Where To Stay
Once you’ve selected a destination, you then have to find accommodations. With a world of options, from high-end resorts to private vacation homes for rent, this can be daunting. The secret is to focus most on your shared vacation preferences, including type of accommodations (like a mountain retreat or beach resort) and style (like independent or all-inclusive). I know just which questions to ask to help you narrow down your list, helping you arrive at that one perfect experience.
Know When To Book
Spontaneity has no place in honeymoon planning. This is one time when all the arrangements should be made well ahead of time, after plenty of thought and consideration. Making arrangements six to nine months in advance allows for the greatest options in elements (like room type) that can really make or break your honeymoon. I also recommend booking this far ahead because it opens up the possibility for you to pay for your honeymoon in installments.
Know What To Spend
Just like you set a budget for your wedding, set a budget for your honeymoon. By doing so, you’ll avoid cutting corners and compromising on the trip that sets the tone for your married life. Working together, I’ll see that you get the best experience while you get the most out of every dollar.
You have a lot of decisions ahead of you as you plan your honeymoon, and I hope you see that one of your best decisions is to work with me. With 20 years as a Romance Travel Specialist, I will be your invaluable asset. My job, my passion, is making travel dreams come true.
