Where to Honeymoon?
For many couples, the honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, so it’s important to select a location that fits your needs, budget, and style. But how do you decide on your destination? Start by answering these five questions:
What’s your dream location? It’s your honeymoon, so start by dreaming big! Talk to your future spouse about destinations you’ve always wanted to visit, and note any similarities in your dream destinations. While you both might not initially want to go to the exact same location, you can find common ground in the general part of the world you want to visit, the honeymoon style you prefer (beach, cultural, off-the-beaten path), or even more specific features – like you both want a location with world-class restaurants. And if you just can’t settle on one location, perhaps a cruise is right for you!
How much time do you have? If you have an unlimited amount of vacation time, lucky you! But most couples have work or other obligations that may prohibit them from taking an extremely long honeymoon. So if you have just a weekend to get away, you may want to pick a location close to home. But if you’re able to take two weeks off, you can spend more time traveling to a far off destination, like Australia or Bali.
What is your budget? Consider how much money you have to spend. While honeymoon registries are a good way to ask your guests to help pay for extras and activities, it’s important that you’re able to afford the airfare, accommodations and meals yourself, right now. If you’re looking to cut costs, look for all-inclusive resorts or locations closer to home to save on airfare. Also, try to avoid visiting hot destinations during peak travel season. Each destination has a peak season. You may want to consider waiting for off peak season to travel.
When are you going? The time of year is important in choosing a destination, so make sure to do your research. There is weather to consider and peak travel seasons.
What do we want to do? Do you want a relaxing honeymoon experience, or one full of adventure? Is nightlife important to you or are you more interested in daytime cultural activities like museums? Talk to your future spouse about all your travel preferences before committing to a location. There are some destinations that provide versatility, like many of the Caribbean islands, but you’re not going be lounging on the beach in Paris, for example, so choose the activities that are most important to you.
