How do you decide as a couple where to honeymoon?
Your honeymoon is one of the most important trips you will go on. After all, it is the first of many trips you and your partner will take together as man and wife. After all of the stress of planning a wedding, the honeymoon is the time to relax and unwind with your beau. Many couples have a hard time deciding on the destination of their honeymoon, but not to worry – Cupid has some tips:
1. Set a budget: The first thing you should do as a couple is work out a budget. Both of you should agree on how much money you’re willing to spend on the honeymoon. Can you afford that dream honeymoon in Fiji, or should you be looking at locations closer to home? Whatever the case, don’t be discouraged if you can’t go all out for the honeymoon. There are dozens of locations within an affordable price range just for newlyweds.
2. Research: You and your significant other should think about what kind of honeymoon you want. Do you want to spend most of the time relaxing by the pool and drinking cocktails, or do you want to live on the adventurous side? Once you figure out what kind of setting you both will enjoy, then you can narrow down your location search.
3. Get some help: Discuss some of your options with a couple who’s been in your situation before, or get in touch with a travel agent. Mention your budget and what you’re expecting out of the honeymoon. Not only will you get some valuable feedback, but you might also get information on other possible destinations you and your partner didn’t think of!
