The honeymoon is a trip of a lifetime opportunity!  The history behind the “honeymoon” is very interesting and can be found here:

I would recommend booking your honeymoon at least 6-9 months in advance. Many popular destinations book fast especially during peak season, which is June-August in most places.

  • Agree on a destination that reflects both of your personalities
  • Agree on how long will you be on your honeymoon
  • Look beyond the “tourist” stuff.  See what your destination has to offer for excursions and experiences
  • Set a honeymoon budget- how much you will be spending on the honeymoon.  Remember that many places offer “excursions” that cost extra but add to the experience.
  • Book your hotel and flight (if necessary) as soon as you can!
  • Book a rental car if necessary (check on the age requirements if you will be doing this).
  • Get passports (if travelling internationally)
  • Remember, places south of the equator have opposite seasons!
