The Honeymoon

The wedding day is over. Months of planning is done and it’s now time to go away and enjoy your first weeks of marriage bliss together.

Wedding Night Accommodation

Some couples head straight from their wedding reception to the airport, but not all travel plans will fit this conveniently. Rather than returning home, before departing for your honeymoon why not booking somewhere special to spend the first night or nights together as man and wife.

Choosing A Destination

Whether you decide to go to a romantic island hideaway or a romantic camping trip, where you spend your honeymoon should be all about having a holiday but also at the same time an experience that you will both enjoy and remember forever.

Honeymoons can be influenced by a budget, but don’t let that stop you from having a good time. Once you know how much you can afford, this is when you can begin searching for a destination that will suit your budget and expectations.

You can relax on a tropical island, snuggle in a secluded mountain escape, plan an adventurous backpacking adventure. Your plans are limited by your imagination. The season and time of year may also determine on where you go.

Start researching months before to make sure you can get the best prices and travel deals out there. Travel agents may be able to assist with your planning and will be able to look after transportation, transfers, tours and care hire if required. They can often get a better price for you than if you were booking for yourself.

If you are going overseas make sure you have all the correct paperwork organized such as licenses, passports or visas and make sure you have travel insurance that will cover any unexpected situations that you may encounter on the way.

What do I pack?

When deciding on what to pack for your honeymoon, you will need to take into account your itinerary, luggage limits, season/weather conditions, laws, customs or dress standards.

Dress for the season, but make sure you’re prepared for any dramatic climate changes. Make sure you don’t have too much luggage as you may need to take different modes of transportation that may provide limited space. But make sure you have enough room to carry home souvenirs and any shopping you do along the way.

Here is a list of some items you may like to include:

  • Appropriate footwear
  • General everyday clothes
  • Cold & wet weather wear
  • First aid and medical supplies (ensure what you are carrying is permitted where you’re going.)
  • Money belt
  • Mosquito repellant
  • Passports, licences and permits
  • Camera
  • Sewing kit and washing supplies
  • Sunscreen, hat and sunglasses
  • Swimwear
  • Toiletries
