Tips to Plan a Stress Free Honeymoon
After your wedding, you and your partner deserve the time to relax, be yourselves, and not worry about a thing!
In order to pull off a stress free honeymoon, you need the basics planned out in advance to truly be able to relax and enjoy. Whether you’re planning a cross continent Asian adventure or a one week all-inclusive down south, there are three necessary ingredients that make honeymoon planning a breeze.

First, and most importantly, you and your spouse need to be on the same page when it comes to your honeymoon. Imagine your partner’s priority is relaxing and yours is adventure (you know what they say, opposites attract). If you and your stubborn spouse are having trouble compromising, talk it out until you can find common ground, and alternate between what you want and what they want.
Not every couple can afford to take a month-long honeymoon, but if you plan ahead you can manage to incorporate at least a weekend away into your wedding budget. The trick is to start putting money aside as soon as you get engaged. You can also start booking flights and hotels as far in advance as possible. Each time you book something, wait to pay it off before you book the next big expense. That way you can spread your payments out throughout the course of your engagement and stay on top of them better.
Finally, the best way to enjoy a stress-free honeymoon is to do your research ahead of time. Ask friends and family who have travelled to areas you’re interested in for advice on where to eat, what to buy and what to avoid. Read hotel reviews, book any additional travel arrangements like shuttles or transfers in advance, and have all your reservations and confirmations easily accessible on your phone.
Research and plan ahead of time, so when you arrive, you can focus on the fun!
