If you’re planning a honeymoon, chances are, you could be getting a tad overwhelmed in figuring out where to go for the best honeymoon experience.
You’ve likely been online searching endlessly thinking that you will stumble upon your dream honeymoon location. Dreamy tropical beaches? Picturesque mountain ranges? Dazzling city lights? A romantic honeymoon can take you places that you never imagined going to, but it can be hard to choose the right spot. Instead, you have wasted another evening that could have been spent on wedding planning, with your fiancee, or just curled up on the couch binge-watching your new favorite show.
Thankfully, you have now found my 4 tips, which are going to change all of that! Are you ready? Let’s do this!
1. Create a Vision
While this may seem obvious, you’d be surprised how many couples turn to the internet first, when they really need to create a vision first.
Allow me to help you better define what you are envisioning for your honeymoon and break it down in a more realistic way so that you can get clarity on your vision.
Do you want...
· Modern rooms with 24-hour room service
· Authentic and unique accommodations
· Adult or couples only setting
· Top shelf liquor
· Restaurants worthy of a foodie
· Onsite water sports
· Nightly entertainment
· Large and active
· Boutique and low-key
· Mountains and waterfalls
· Oceans and beaches
· History and culture
Go ahead and use the above list to get started creating your vision for your honeymoon.
2. Decide on your non-negotiables
I encourage you both to write down your must-haves and priorities, the things that are most important for you to have the honeymoon of your dreams.
For example a swanky suite, high-end service, a world-class spa, the best beach, incredible dining, a downtown location with easy access to everything, beautiful sites, specific experiences like snorkeling with sea turtles or a romantice sunset catamaran sailing, etc.
Once you decide on your non-negotiables, the two of you.
3. Define the type of experience you want
Now that you know the most important things that each of you wants, it is time to work together to decide on the overall experience you both feel you will need.
Some couples really want to be pampered and relax, other couples want to explore and have an adventure, and some couples want a good blend of both. The location you choose for your honeymoon will directly impact the type of experience you will have and without defining what type of experience you want; your honeymoon could be, well, meh.
Here’s something I like to ask couples during a consultation: “Finish this sentence with the first word that comes to your mind: in order for my honeymoon to be perfect, it must be _________"
4. Agree on a budget
And the final step is to agree on a budget. Once you have an idea of what you both want, then the budget conversation will be easier to have, as well as, help you both decide on something realistic.
It is best to consider your vision and your non-negotiables and fit those into your
budget. You’d be surprised at how far your funds will go when celebrating a honeymoon at an all-inclusive resort. When you honeymoon at an all-inclusive resort, you can earn honeymoon amenities and perks that willenhance your romantic vacation.
