Still Wondering How to Plan the Ideal Honeymoon?

Your Gatlinburg wedding will only last for one day – but the memories you create on these special hours will last for a lifetime. And once all the stress and anxiety of the Big Day will be finally over, you will want to build new memories with your loved one – this time, far from everyone you know, just the two of you, on the perfect honeymoon.

How do you plan that, though? What are some of the most important things to keep in mind when planning the honeymoon? We have gathered them right below – continue reading if you want to find out more.

  • Set a budget. It’s not fun, and after all the wedding planning (and budgeting) you’ve done, this is probably the last thing you want to hear. However, setting a clear honeymoon budget is very important because it will help you determine where to go, when to do it, and what to do there. Be honest and realistic with this – some locations are just more expensive at certain times of the year.
  • What do you REALLY want to do on your honeymoon? You probably want to do it all: the sunbathing, the extreme sports, the city breaks, the hikes, the marvelous landscapes, and the amazing food. However, few locations can offer everything. And even if they do, they tend to be ultra-expensive, so you might not be able to afford it. Instead, focus on the top 3 things you both want to do on your honeymoon and find a location based on that.
  • Be flexible. You don’t have to leave on your honeymoon as soon as the wedding is over. In fact, more and more couples choose to have their honeymoon many months after the wedding. For example, if you want to visit a location that’s best in spring, but you’re getting married in fall, you can definitely have a few months of “break” between your wedding and your honeymoon.
  • Don’t over-plan. You’re going on your honeymoon to enjoy yourselves and feel great – not to follow a schedule. Sure, jot down the things you really want to do and see, but don’t make the entire honeymoon feel like a long tour on the clock.
