Do you two have different ideas on where you want to go for your honeymoon? If so, you are not alone. Planning your once-in-a-lifetime trip together can be very stressful. You want to go to sandy beaches in the Caribbean while he has always wanted to see historic Italy. So now what??
Before this turns into a stressful fight, take a breath and sit down with separate pads of paper...
Each of you write down your list of essentials - hiking, beach, swim-up pool bar, relaxing intimate time together, or active exploration of a new destination? Once you have a clear picture of what would make an ideal honeymoon to you - share notes and see what you have in common.
Next, determine your budget and rule out destinations or ideas that may not match your savings plan. Be sure to keep in mind the time of year you will be traveling to your destination - traveling during height of hurricane season may not be ideal for your Caribbean island paradise. You might just come up with a better idea or see why your soon to be spouse has a great plan!
Once you have discussed and determined your list of essential details and budget for your honeymoon - contact a travel expert. A professional will have a better idea on what you are looking for and could even recommend something you never even thought of based on the experiences you are looking for.
In the end, just remember you will be with the person most important to you for the rest of your life - Maybe you can go to the other destination for your first year anniversary or other milestone celebration in your lives together!
