Top 10 Honeymoon Tips and Tricks to Ensure a Great Trip 

Honeymoon Tips

Friends and family may give a lot of honeymoon tips about the destination.  In fact, you’ll naturally spend a lot of time selecting the perfect honeymoon destination for you and your spouse.  However, it’s equally important to consider these tips and tricks to make your honeymoon trip spectacular.

Favorite Honeymoon Tips and Tricks:

  1. Forget about what your best friend or colleagues did for their honeymoons. Don’t follow the trends. Follow your heart, and listen to your gut. While it’s inspiring to consider the top honeymoon destinations and to think about locations visited by celebrities, you ultimately have to design a honeymoon that appeals to you and your spouse alone.

  2. Don’t overlook legal travel requirements. You’ll need a passport if you venture outside of your home country, but there are some other requirements that you must meet before being admitted into some countries. For instance, some countries want to see proof that you plan on returning to your home country within a specific period of time.

  3. Self-guided isn’t always all that you imagine. It sounds romantic to tour a new city or head into unknown waters without anyone to intrude on your romance, but self-guided excursions also leave you vulnerable to getting lost. You may also miss highlights that a guide would have pointed out to your pleasure.

  4. Get your wedding ring insured, or just leave it at home. This may sound odd, but the last thing you want is to lose your ring on the beach or have it stolen right off your hand. It’s not pleasant to think about those things happening, but they occur every year in locations around the world.

  5. Don’t forget the selfies. It’s easy to get caught up snapping pictures of your spouse alone and of the sights that you get to see, but you must also take some pictures of yourself. While you’re at it, get a few “usies” in there because you’ll want to remember your special moments as a couple. Don’t hesitate to ask someone else to take a picture of you in front of the most spectacular scenery encountered on your trip.

  6. Crowdsource your honeymoon with sites like Honey Fund and Traveler’s Joy. You can upload photos and create a story that explains your love affair and your excitement for the wedding and honeymoon to come. Your loved ones will have the opportunity to pay for specific excursions and experiences or to simply contribute to your honeymoon fund.

  7. Consider a “buddymoon.” This is a honeymoon taken with another couple. Not only does this increase your safety, but you may find ways to share expenses as well. You’ll spend lots of time apart to get that romance in, but you’ll also spend memorable moments together.

  8. Think about transportation well in advance. Most honeymoon destinations allow you to book private transportation so that you never get lost or waste time waiting for taxis. If you decide to rent a vehicle or mingle with the locals on public transportation, make sure to plan before you leave home so that you know how much it will cost and what requirements you must meet to secure a vehicle or board the bus.

  9. Don’t limit your honeymoon to peak travel season. You can typically book your trip right after or before peak season to get much lower rates on transportation and accommodations. You’ll also have to share your destination with fewer people during these times.

  10. Enrich your honeymoon trip with layover excursions. Rather than rushing through the airport to make connecting flights, slow down your pace. Plan short activities at each airport that you visit, and you’ll have a lot more experiences to talk about when you return home.

Are you getting excited to say “I do” and race off for the vacation of a lifetime? If you follow these honeymoon tips and keep the tricks in mind, you’re likely to create a spectacular honeymoon that you will relive over and over in the years to come.
