After months of tedious wedding planning, every couple needs a nice relaxing time away in the name of a honeymoon. The good news is that majority of married couples always find time to enjoy their honeymoon. However, a large number of couples get it wrong with the planning. A wise man once said, if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.
At Salaton Safaris we make it our business to ensure that you get it right from the start and avoid the common mistakes that will ruin your moments. Here are some of the blunders you should avoid while planning your honeymoon.
The best time to plan for your honeymoon is six to eight months prior. A lot of exotic places are often full and late booking might lead to you losing out on your dream destination for your wedding. Early booking also cuts down both airline and hotel costs which would act to your advantage.
Not sharing the planning
Honeymoon planning requires some help from a third party. Most times if it is planned single handedly, you might end up with a trip that is tailored to suit only one person’s preferences. Unless you are 100% sure that your spouse would love your chosen destination, I would suggest putting your heads together to settle on a location that everyone is going to love.
Copying other couples’ honeymoon ideas
Your friends might have an awesome experience during their honeymoon but copying their itinerary might not be such a good idea. Their idea of fun might not resonate with yours and so a proper honeymoon means having it tailored specially for you and your spouse.
Short-changing the honeymoon budget
Wedding expenses can tempt you to cut down on the honeymoon budget but before you take that step consider how long a wedding lasts compared to how long a honeymoon lasts. Try not to settle for a lesser honeymoon package just because you slashed your honeymoon budget at the expense of the wedding budget. Chances are that you might not be pleased with the last option honeymoon itinerary.
Not seeking professional help
Travel agents are often indispensable. The difference between booking trips yourself and using travel agents is that you might not be aware of available discounts and deals that might slash your budget by a great deal.
Travel agents often get discounts courtesy of their business relationship with honeymoon providers. On top of that they have been in the business long enough to recommend the perfect destination based on first-hand experience. At Salaton Safaris we handle every stage of your trip and ensure that you have an unforgettable honeymoon.
