Be it for a honeymoon or a bachelor trip or any trip for that matter, determining your budget is the first thing to do. Sit down with your significant other and start talking about numbers. Be it big or small, arriving at a budget will give you a clear picture how much you have and how much you have to save.

Remember, just like marriage, honeymoon is also an important happening in your life. So, it is only natural to plan it big. If you feel, you are falling a little short of your expected budget then try creating a honeymoon registry during your wedding and share it with your friends and family. Extra love doesn’t hurt anyone after all!

If you conduct a survey and ask people what screws their travel plans the most, then you would definitely hear them blaming it on their work schedules. The same applies to you as well. Figure out how your work schedule looks like and plan your vacation properly. You don’t want people to interrupt you while you are having a romantic candle light dinner.

Even f you find out that you have only a few days to celebrate your honeymoon, don’t lose hope. Just make sure you make the most of the break.

Be it married or unmarried, it’s a given fact that each one has their own taste. From history to adventure to art to culture to nature to road trip to beaches to nightlife to sports, to ecotourism, there is a varied range of themes that you can choose from and it is really ideal for you to find out what you both are commonly interested in and work more on that.

Just arriving at a destination without even knowing if it will suit your interest is a total disaster.

4. Watch out for the season

Season plays an important role in your budget which is why determining your preferred season of visit is a must. While off-season prices are always on the low side, there aren’t many attractions which operate during this time. So, while you are seriously considering the money part, you should also make sure you are good to do the activities that you have already planned to do.

Regardless of how much ever you plan, things can still go haywire. But, the best thing to do from your side is to pay attention to the current events. Be it natural calamities, financial crisis, civil unrest, there’s so much happening everywhere. If you realize that any of such event is taking place, avoid the destination at all cost. Even, if it’s the best place in the world. You are definitely better off without it. There’s always a second chance.

So your answer to choosing your perfect honeymoon destination might actually lie within yourselves. Just close your eyes and envision where you want your honeymoon and how you want to go about it.

Nothing comes easily to those who wait, which is why you have to go the extra mile and ask your friends and family for valid suggestions.
