A lot of details go into planning your honeymoon such as selecting the location, travel arrangements and your hotel. Planning a honeymoon can be a very stressful occasion, but it will be well worth it when you are relaxing with your new spouse in a beautiful setting. You will want to pick out the location for your honeymoon first, since you will need to plan the rest of the details around the specific location. You can even plan to visit the country of your ancestors, or a favorite location within the United States that the two of you have always dreamed of visiting. The possibilities really are endless when it comes to picking a location for your honeymoon, since there are beautiful vacation spots all over the world.
After you choose your destination it is time to start researching the hotels or bed and breakfasts in the area. The hotel is the one area where you should really splurge, since you will most likely be spending a great deal of time at the hotel location. Look for hotels that have a honeymoon suite, since they normally offer great perks such as room service and activities for newly married couples. The room is also sometimes decorated with rose petals, champagne, gourmet chocolates, and other fun items to complete a romantic vacation, so it is well worth it to make the hotel the most expensive part of the trip.
You can plan out some various activities that you and your new spouse can enjoy, such as a couples day at a spa and romantic meals together. Depending on the location of your honeymoon, you can even plan outdoors activities, sight seeing tours, or anything and everything that you know you and your soon to be spouse would enjoy. Make sure you plan plenty of relaxation on your honeymoon so that you and your spouse can really bond.
Making the travel arrangements is the final step, since most honeymoon locations are not within driving distance. Plane travel can be expensive during peak seasons so be sure to check rates. If you do plan on traveling by plane, try planning your arrival and departure midweek to save a little money. The plane will also be less busy than on a weekend, so you can enjoy the plane ride instead of being cramped up next to two complete strangers.
