Booking and planning your honeymoon is just as exciting as the wedding itself. Depending what you want to place more focus on, you may choose to have a bigger or smaller wedding so you can, in turn, have a bigger or smaller honeymoon. Nevertheless, there are a few things to keep in mind;
The biggest mix up can come when bookings and reservations are made and either miscommunications or misunderstandings slip in. Make sure you confirm all dates and check-in times. For example, if your wedding is on the 20th and your sleeping over at the venue on the evening of the 20th, your honeymoon accommodation needs to be from the 21st. However, take in consideration the traveling time and the time you will be able to check-in. If you’re leaving for your honeymoon at 9AM and the traveling time is 3 hours, you should arrive at 12PM, but most of the accommodation will only allow you access at about 2PM. Confirm these times, along with the dates, to ensure that you’re not going to sit somewhere waiting with your luggage.
Also, make sure to search some reviews of the chosen accommodation, to see what other guests past experiences were. Don’t base your decision on what they say, but do take it into consideration as a website and advertising mediums can be misleading. Make sure to confirm the addresses and GPS coordinates for all the accommodation you booked, save them on your phone and GPS device.
Make sure to have a look at the activities nearby or book the accommodation close to activities you would like to do. Some of these activities may need a booking or security deposit, so a good move would be to do your homework and check the times and dates, so they match up with the rest of your planning.
The next step would be to plan your luggage, to ensure you have the right clothes for the predicted weather and the planned activities. You also need to make sure you have enough spending money for what you plan to do.
Lastly, enjoy every moment; Whether your plans work out or go wrong, because the stories you bring back form part of the memories you make.
