When it comes to weddings, it’s safe to say we’ve all thought about what our perfect day looks like. Some of us even have the whole thing planned out and will not sacrifice our vision, DAVE! Excuse me. I went a little Bridezilla for a second, there. We put so much thought into our weddings, of course, because of their importance as a milestone in our lives. Our wedding is the day that we finally joined our special someone in holy matrimony, civil union, or whatever your needs demand. However, wedding planning is hard work and eats up a lot of time, so many of us neglect planning our honeymoon with quite the same vigor. And, that’s a shame.
There’s this idea about funerals that feel also applies to weddings. This idea is that the funeral is not for the deceased who, in theory, isn’t even present, but for the mourners. Weddings strike me in much the same way, though, admittedly, I suffer from social anxiety. The honeymoon, however, is for no one but the newlywed couple, so it deserves more focus, in my opinion. While I can’t speak to the travel destination meant for two soul mates, I can offer some general travel advice to help you plan your honeymoon.
First and foremost, make all of your reservations early. This means booking a flight, if necessary, the hotel, of course, and an Enterprise rental car, if needed. You’ll want these booked early for a couple of reasons. Firstly, this allows you to worry about putting together an itinerary, for example, without having to fret over travel arrangements and accommodations. The other great benefit of this is that you have more time to change plans if need be, and if something goes wrong with your reservation, you’ll have more time to be notified of the issue.You’ll want to pack early, too, but this is easier said than done, considering you’ll need a lot of items you use everyday. Therefore, it’s a great idea to buy duplicates of your tooth brushes, tooth paste, deodorant, feminine hygiene products if necessary, etc. You’ll want to make sure to pack enough clothes. A general rule is to assemble a unique outfit for each day of the honeymoon with a few extra items just in case. Don’t forget your passport, for international trips, as well as your driver’s license or state or federal ID.
