Prepar­ing for the wed­ding man­ages to pret­ty exhaust and so you want to leave for your hon­ey­moon as soon as pos­si­ble. But here we will not leave you with­out help! Check out our com­pi­la­tion of tips on how to orga­nize your hon­ey­moon to make it per­fect. We will tell you what to take with you on your hon­ey­moon trip, when to plan it and how to get more than on a reg­u­lar vaca­tion.

Tip 1. When to fly on your honeymoon?

And here we are not talk­ing about the time of year!

A hon­ey­moon trip, no mat­ter how pleas­ant it may be, also brings stress. To enjoy not only the wed­ding, but also the hon­ey­moon, we advise you to take a break for at least a week between the day of the wed­ding and the date of depar­ture. No mat­ter how roman­tic the idea of ​​going to the air­port straight from the wed­ding ban­quet may seem, it’s bet­ter to think again 🙂 Believe me, on the day after the wed­ding you will just want to lie down togeth­er in silence, and not go through pass­port con­trol, solve ques­tions about check­ing into a hotel and deal with acclima­ti­za­tion .

Tip 2. Choose the type of vacation on your honeymoon trip

Decide what is more impor­tant for you: relax­ation on the beach, cul­tur­al pro­gram or extreme sports. Talk it over with your fiancé at the very begin­ning of your hon­ey­moon plan­ning to avoid con­flicts. Not the most pleas­ant sit­u­a­tion will arise if you want to sun­bathe on the sand, and he will book 15 excur­sions and joint div­ing lessons.

If you like dif­fer­ent hol­i­day for­mats, you need to make com­pro­mis­es: for exam­ple, reduce the num­ber of excur­sions and set aside sep­a­rate days of doing absolute­ly noth­ing 🙂

Tip 3: Consider experimenting on your honeymoon

We know that in dif­fi­cult moments of prepa­ra­tion, the hand reach­es out to book last-minute tours to Turkey and not wor­ry about any­thing else 🙂 But still think: you have a whole life ahead of you for dif­fer­ent trips, and a hon­ey­moon is like a wed­ding, it hap­pens once . Choose a vaca­tion that you will remem­ber. Maybe it will be a trip to Paris, which almost every girl dreams of, or an extreme tour to Vic­to­ria Falls. How about rid­ing ele­phants in Thai­land and tak­ing cool pic­tures of your­self swim­ming with them in a pond?

Tip 4. Prepare for your honeymoon ahead of time

Of course, you don’t need to plan your hon­ey­moon a year in advance, like a wed­ding 🙂 But we advise you to start 2–3 months in advance, and here’s why: the ear­li­er you start book­ing tick­ets and hotels, the big­ger dis­count you can get. And if a visa is required for the coun­try you have cho­sen, then you should def­i­nite­ly not delay it.

In addi­tion, a cou­ple of weeks before the wed­ding, the stress of the bride usu­al­ly heats up to the lim­it 🙂 In this state, plan­ning a hon­ey­moon is unlike­ly to bring you plea­sure, and the chances of miss­ing impor­tant details increase.

Tip 5. Use your position on your honeymoon 🙂

This time you are not just tourists, you are new­ly­weds. And that means that the atti­tude towards you will be spe­cial. Don’t for­get to indi­cate your new sta­tus when mak­ing hotel and restau­rant reser­va­tions. Often estab­lish­ments give you a bot­tle of wine or desserts, and in a hotel you can upgrade your room cat­e­go­ry for free and pre­pare a pleas­ant sur­prise upon check-in.

Tip 6. Adults only resorts for honeymoons

Such resorts are not much dif­fer­ent from ordi­nary hotels, except for one detail — there are no chil­dren at all. All guests, depend­ing on the pol­i­cy of a par­tic­u­lar hotel, are over 16 or 18 years old. So if you or your fiancé are annoyed by chil­dren’s songs in the evenings and ani­ma­tors in car­toon cos­tumes, such resorts will be a real sal­va­tion.

Tip 7. Don’t Forget Your Honeymoon Travel Insurance

And this applies not only to extreme sports­men! If you decide to spend your hon­ey­moon bask­ing in the sun by the sea, insur­ance will also come in handy. Acquain­tance with local cui­sine and div­ing may not end in the most pleas­ant way. So you should make sure that you are pro­vid­ed with med­ical assis­tance and sup­port from the insur­ance ser­vice.

Tip 8. Plan for all the hassles on your honeymoon

Rely on insur­ance — but don’t make a mis­take your­self! When think­ing about what to take on your hon­ey­moon, pay spe­cial atten­tion to the first aid kit. Of course, it all depends on the region you are going to, but some funds are required in any case.

This list includes: tablets for headaches, motion sick­ness, drops or spray for the com­mon cold, antipyret­ics, lozenges for sore throats, reme­dies for poi­son­ing and pres­sure. Even if you are not aller­gic, anti­his­t­a­mines will come in handy — a ter­ri­ble aller­gy can even start from clean­ing prod­ucts in a hotel, I have test­ed it on per­son­al expe­ri­ence 🙂 Band-aids are also a real must-have, espe­cial­ly if you buy new san­dals for a trip.

Tip 9. Shooting a love story on your honeymoon

Don’t the streets of Venice or the seashore deserve a pro­fes­sion­al pho­to shoot with you? 🙂 To do this, it is not nec­es­sary to take a pho­tog­ra­ph­er with you on your hon­ey­moon trip — you can find local spe­cial­ists direct­ly on Insta­gram (even Russ­ian speak­ers, so that the lan­guage bar­ri­er does not inter­fere with the pho­to ses­sion).

Even if you or your cho­sen one are engaged in pho­tog­ra­phy, you should not rely on your own strength: do you need gor­geous joint pho­tos from your hon­ey­moon? Sim­ple self­ies can not be com­pared with pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­phy in such sur­round­ings. By the way, some cou­ples even take wed­ding dress­es with them on a trip, and the result is worth it!
