Lets face it a wedding is only special if the honeymoon is equally special. The world is a much smaller place now and places that were previously considered inaccessible are now just an international flight away. Many married couples spend days planning their honeymoon and are always looking for advice on how they can make their honeymoon special, and make the most of their honeymoon.
This article is written to help newly married couples make a more informed decision when they are planning their honeymoon. A common mistake most couples make is that they start looking for a honeymoon package or destination without sitting down and planning their budget. It is important for newly weds to plan their honeymoon based on their budget and not the other way around. Newly weds end up spending a lot more than they bargain for because they never really plan their honeymoon budget.
A couple should have a pretty good idea of what they are willing to spend on accommodation, on the travel expenses and also how much they can afford to spend once they reach their honeymoon spot. The only excuse for not having a budget is if money is truly not an object. Once the budget is decided, the next decision is choosing a honeymoon destination. Once again the honeymoon destination should be based on what the couple wants to do on their honeymoon.
If a couple is looking to just spend some quality time away from the noise of the big city, then exotic locations like Bali are ideal as they have a blend of discos and secluded beaches. It is not uncommon for nature loving couples to go on African safaris after their weddings. Eventually it all boils down to what a couple enjoy doing together. Lately Caribbean cruises have become extremely popular with a lot of couples; Caribbean cruises are an ideal blend of adventure sports, leisure, time in the sun, and not to mention some amazing exotic locales. A couple looking for a honey moon that is a blend of 'pretty much everything' must go on a Caribbean cruise.
A couple looking for the true romance that Europe has to offer must visit Paris. Known for its scenic parks, and laid back life style, Paris is one of the most popular honey moon destinations in the world and not just Europe. At the end of the day, it all comes down to how much a couple can spend on their honeymoon, and what they want to do once they get to the destination of their choice. With so many quality resources available online, the internet is perhaps one of the first places to look for the ideal honeymoon location. In addition, newly weds can visit quality websites like www.plan-your-honeymoon.
com to know more about the destinations and locations they are interested in visiting. It is also a good idea to speak to friends and family to get genuine first hand accounts of honeymoon destinations they have visited. Remember advice from friends and family is perhaps the most unbiased advice one can get. Package deals There are so many honeymoon packages available, that choosing a honeymoon package can become a little bit of a headache if one does not know where to start. With so many options to choose from, couples usually assume that the most popular package is the safest bet, the truth is that chances are a couple will probably be grouped with other couples, essentially a sense of exclusivity is lost.
Couples that enjoy time alone, or are looking for a honeymoon that will let them enjoy some quality time with each other, should look for a honeymoon package that is designed to offer couples privacy and time with each other. Even if the package deal is a little more expensive, it will be worth it in the longer run.
