“Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds” - Shakespeare

Marriage is often described as a match made in heaven, something decided by fate. But, in our quest to find grand meaning in every action of our life, we tend to forget one simple, yet important fact. Marriage is a commitment. A commitment between two people to share their lives together, their laughter, their sorrows, their dreams, hopes, failures, success. A commitment for life. A promise, not made to be broken. If marriage is a symbol of that promise, then honeymoon is the celebration of it. This is what makes a honeymoon such a cherished memory, because it’s a testament of your commitment, of your love. This is why people strive so hard to plan a perfect honeymoon.

So we are here to help you plan the perfect celebration of your love with these simple tips.

Honeymoon planning tips

1. Be an early bird

Wedding planning and celebrations often take their toll, leaving you stressed and exhausted. So ideally start planning your honeymoon in advance. Being an early bird gives you good and cheap deals. The internet is well equipped to help you in this process. So yes, in a gist what we’re trying to say is if you’re going to start planning your wedding a year in advance, you might want to start planning for your honeymoon as well.

2. Decide on your honeymoon budget

The most important thing when it comes to planning is fixing up your budget. First set your budget and then look at appropriate destinations, if you do it the other way round, it might end up in either over expenditure or heartbreak. When you’re booking make sure you get deals that include air tickets and transportation costs along with your hotel price. Combo deals or packages tend to be cheaper.

3. It’s about the destination

There’s a famous quote that states ‘It’s not about the destination but about the journey.’ But if you’re on your honeymoon, then it is about the destination. Picking a destination is smoother once you know the kind of honeymoon you want. It could be anything ranging from an adventurous holiday to a cultural one or just simply a relaxing honeymoon. Pick your style and the destination will fall in place naturally.

4. The important month

It might just so happen, that you might have your destination in place but it might not be the right time to travel to that place. It’s always necessary to make sure the month of your honeymoon and the destination are in sync. If you’re planning on going to Switzerland or Maldives, then January is your best time. May for Seychelles or Bora Bora and so on and so forth. Depending on this you might have to push back your honeymoon by a couple of weeks or months.

5. Act like locals

Weddings, honeymoons are a costly affair. So if you want to save a few bucks, your best bet would be to act like the locals once on your honeymoon. Socialise with a few locals to get a scoop on the famous and affordable joints. This way you’ll get to feel the authentic vibe of the place without it having much of an impact on your wallet.
