One of my friends is getting married soon and asked me for advice on planning her honeymoon. Since I work for Delta Vacations, I’m asked a lot for tips and suggestions for planning vacations. I believe that your honeymoon is the most important vacation you will ever take, so why not spend some extra time planning a vacation you’ll remember forever!
Here is my list of honeymoon tips:
- Pick an adults-only resort.
Do you really want to celebrate your marriage with romantic dinners and relaxing pool days distracted by small children? At an adults-only resort, you’ll be surrounded by other couples enjoying their vacations in the same way you are. It’s also fun to meet other couples at the resort that may be celebrating an anniversary trip, honeymoon, or destination wedding.
- Use a Travel Agent.
Travel Agents are an amazing resource. All they do is book travel and some even specialize in booking honeymoons. They’ll be able to suggest the best resorts, have insider tips, and know how to work with the resort to get special honeymoon amenities.
- Make sure to tell the resort you will be celebrating your honeymoon and bring a copy of your marriage certificate.
Many resorts offer special complimentary amenities just for honeymooning couples. This can include special desserts or champagne, complimentary spa services, or romantic dinners on the beach. Make sure the resort is aware that you will be celebrating your honeymoon and bring a copy of your marriage certificate with you.
- Pre-purchase add-ons with your vacation package.
You’ll often save time and money by booking spa services, excursions, and other add-ons in advance. And many sightseeing tours let you purchase with your package, then pick the date of activity upon arrival.
Honeymooners, congratulations! I hope you have an amazing trip and these tips have helped you jump into planning a memorable honeymoon.
Married couples, do you have any other advice for planning a honeymoon? Where did you take your honeymoon and do you have any special memories of your trip?
