Our Top Tips for planning your Dream Honeymoon

06 January 2018

Your honeymoon is a chance to enjoy your dream holiday, giving you time to unwind and enjoy each other's company after all the excitement of your wedding day. It marks your first shared experience as a married couple. 

And just as your choice of venue for your wedding day reflects your own personalities, you'll want a honeymoon destination that suits you both too. Remember - there is no obligation to lie on a beach for two weeks.

"When should I start planning my honeymoon?"

Your own personal Travel Counsellor will take the time to get to know you and find out exactly what you want from your honeymoon. Planning ahead allows time to budget accordingly and also allows adequate time for passport & visa applications. However, don't worry if you haven't left a lot of time - we will find the perfect holiday that is unique to you both.

"Where in the World?" 

Australia & South America are amazing destinations, but not if you have only one week for your honeymoon. There are so many beautiful destinations available a little closer to home too. Picking an exotic location is ideal if you have enough travel time and don't mind long flights. You must also remember to take the time of year you plan to travel into consideration.

"A quiet, relaxing time together"

If all you want is to spend time together and the stress of long-haul flights isn't your thing, then a beautiful boutique hotel in Italy may serve you just as well as an all-inclusive Caribbean beach holiday.

'A taste of adventure & action'

Perhaps you've both always wanted to do something a little bit different and adventurous? Whether it's an African safari, white-water rafting, snorkelling, trekking or even skiing, make sure that you both have the same idea of what you're letting yourself in for. Your honeymoon is not the time to try somewhere unusual that you're not going to like. 

'Sun, sea and sand'

Walking hand-in-hand through the surf on a white sandy beach is surely the definitive honeymoon scene. Just be sure - especially if you are active types - that you really do want to be lazing around for all that time. You might consider combining a tropical beach with a week of adventure, action, or even a cruise.

'Best of both worlds'

Honeymoons are supposed to be romantic - but even the most intense love-birds need a break! A very popular choice is a 'dual centre' break, combining a week of beach-based relaxation with a more active or city-based week.

'Cruising the ocean waves'

Why not take in several destinations in one trip without needing to be continually packing and then unpacking by spending your honeymoon on-board a luxury cruise ship? You could cosy up inside your own luxury cabin - maybe even one equipped with its own private Jacuzzi made for two. Picture yourself enjoying a candlelit dinner in a luxury restaurant at sea, or waking up in a new destination to discover every day... a honeymoon cruise offers all of this and more.

Let us take the stress out of some of your wedding planning and organise your dream honeymoon for you... with us, it's personal...
