Congratulations, you’re getting married… If you’re reading this you are probably on your way to being married, planning your honeymoon and you’re trying to decide how to plan the best possible end to what will probably be one of the happiest moments of your life. Stressful stuff, but do not worry, we’ve got you covered. We’re going to take a look at what you need to consider to plan the most amazing honeymoon ever.
Planning your perfect honeymoon
We know you are probably brimming with questions: Where in the world are you going to go? What are you going to do? How much is it going to cost? What should I wear? Okay hopefully not that last one, I’m sure you’re not freaking out that much, but the fact of the matter is that there’s a lot to plan for when going on your honeymoon and it can get very stressful especially if you also have to focus on wedding plans. That’s why we have outlined the following guidelines to help you stress less and plan the best honeymoon of your life.
Don’t delay, start planning your honeymoon early
Start planning your honeymoon as early as possible, at least 6 to 8 months before. Why? Well unless you know of some hotel or resort with hundreds of empty rooms, planning well before hand means you are more likely to be able to secure that perfect dream destination. Start planning to late and you might have to settle for second best, or if you’re really asleep maybe even third. So the best advice, start planning your honeymoon as early as when you start planning the wedding. In fact taking a break from wedding planning every now and again and focusing on the honeymoon could be a welcome reprieve from all the stress and hustle and bustle of wedding planning.
Have a budget… Very Important!
Money, money, money, must be funny in the rich man’s world… Chances are though, to you money is no laughing matter and that’s why it is important to have a budget. We know the wedding probably already cost you a fortune, but you don’t want the honeymoon to lack as a result thereof. That’s why you start planning early! It’s also why you get the budget for the honeymoon out of the way early so that you don’t have to worry when planning the perfect destination or itinerary that the cost might be too high. You’ll know exactly what you can afford so you’ll know exactly what’s best for you.
It is also very important that you are aware of hidden costs, like Visa’s, airport transfers etc. You don’t want to stress about any unforeseen costs while enjoying this time with your significant other, so be sure to check, double check and triple check that you are aware and have planned for all the costs involved.
Two is better than one don’t you think?
Going on honeymoon and then having all the activities planned being only what your spouse wants, would be very bad. That’s why honeymoon planning shouldn’t be a one-man job, but a joint task. By planning together you can both make sure that there is plenty of stuff to do which you both will enjoy. It also reduces the risk of anything being forgotten because as the saying goes when a husband and wife plan together, the wife can make sure her husband doesn’t forget anything. That isn’t the saying? Oh yeah, it’s two minds are better than one… Either way, having both of you review the plans will definitely ensure that you have taken everything into consideration, so make sure your honeymoon planning is a team effort.
When planning your honeymoon decide the why, before the where!
Most couples are so excited about all the amazing honeymoon destinations you can choose from and become fixated finding that perfect dream destination. However many times you find that the “dream destination” doesn’t actually offer that mauny dream wothy things to do.
That is why you shouldn’t start searching for honeymoon destinations first, but rather focus on what it is you both enjoy doing. Tally up all your interests and things you enjoy doing and then you search for a place based on that. If you both find history, grand architecture and historical settings to be more to your liking try someplace like Italy, if however you find a beach setting and water sports is what you both enjoy then find some place to match. If you do find the picturesque beach setting to be more your thing then definitely check out Lou Moon Resort, renowned for its incredible beauty and known as the jewel of Ghana there is a reason this is the best beach resort in the Western Region and a perfect honeymoon destination.

There is nothing that makes a honeymoon more special than a suprise for your better half, something that says despite all the craziness of the last few months with planning and preparing for the wedding and honeymoon you still found the time to make this special amazing time together even more special.
