The Honeymoon- Part 1

Brides often get consumed with planning for the wedding ceremony and reception and before you know it, the honeymoon gets neglected. The honeymoon is a special time for the new couple. It is a time for you and your spouse to relax and unwind from all the planning and of course...enjoy each other.

*Before you go to a travel agent or start looking for deals, decide exactly what you want your honeymoon to be like. Do you want to just relax at the beach or do you want a resort that has a list of activities/tours?

*If you do use a travel agent, don't forget to tell him/her that this is a honeymoon. Some resorts may offer upgrades for honeymooners.

*Set a budget and stick to it (no different than with the wedding). Don't go for an itinerary that will cost you "an arm and a leg".

*Choose your destination wisely.Go for an adult only resort. We love the kids, but do you really want to hear them screaming at 5 in the morning.

*Consider the season when you choose your honeymoon location. What do I mean by this? Don't go to Costa Rica during the raining season unless you want to spend the whole trip indoors.

*Allow for some down time on the honeymoon. Have fun and do activities but don't forget to relax too.

*Consider an all inclusive resort. This will include airfares, transfers, food, accommodations and liquor etc.

*Before you leave for the trip, prepare a list of all the items you want to take with you.

*Get travel insurance. It is not that expensive and you never know what may go wrong.

I hope you found this advice useful. Stay tuned for Part 2.
