How to Plan a Honeymoon

Planning your honeymoon

– Before you plan anything, it’s important to know what type of trip that you and your new spouse want. Do you want a vacation where the two of you can just relax on golden beaches with plenty of umbrella drinks? Or do you feel like exploring new places and immersing yourselves in different cultures?

– Once you have a plan together, do your research. You can’t plan anything without having an idea of what’s out there and where it all is located! Check out travel sites like Expedia or Kayak to get started on finding the perfect destination for your honeymoon.


Wedding Photographer

– If photography isn’t your thing but it’s important to someone in your wedding party like your mom or sister, plan ahead and ask them if they want to tag along on the honeymoon as a special gift.

– If you decide that you do not want anyone else tagging along with you guys for your honeymoon but still feel like having some pictures taken of the two of you would be nice, plan ahead and hire a professional wedding photographer to plan an session with you.

– When planning your honeymoon, plan ahead of time when you want that special photo shoot to take place! If it’s the beginning or end of your trip, consider booking two separate sessions for optimal timing.

– Dress comfortably and plan a location. Remember, you don’t have to do this shoot at your wedding venue or the place you got engaged! Pick a fun backdrop for some casual photos of just the two of you.

Honeymoon Planning

– Consider asking guests if they want to contribute towards your honeymoon instead of gifts from the wedding registry. This can be a great way to plan for an activity that you really love but might not have been able to plan otherwise, like skydiving or scuba diving!

– Planning ahead is the best thing you can do because it will help make your honeymoon everything you’ve always dreamed of and more. If done right, this trip will become a lasting memory and something you’ll cherish for years to come.


How much is the average honeymoon?

The average honeymoon cost is $5000 and travel expenses make up about half of the spending. If you plan to book a resort or hotel for more than just one night, the price will go up. Honeymoons can cost as little as $1000, but why would you skimp out on something that you will remember forever? Don’t forget your passport if you’re leaving the country! (highly recommend)

How long should a honeymoon last?

This is a personal preference and will depend on what you plan to do. If this trip means more than just relaxation, plan for at least two weeks! Otherwise one week should be the minimum amount of time that your honeymoon lasts.


Where should you do on a honeymoon?

You plan to do everything! If you’re planning a, this trip will be the first time that you and your now spouse get to spend extended amount of time together. Make it an adventure- plan for activities like skydiving or scuba diving (highly recommend) if they are on your bucket list.
