Let’s start this guide with chunks of forecasting. Coz right after your wedding, you’ll be absorbed by bliss so planning ahead will be vital. Start by deciding where to spend your honeymoon. Traveling abroad is highly recommended during summer but spending it locally is just as exciting.
Right after you’ve decided on the location, set the date. This will allow you to book your accommodation and tickets ahead – enjoying the luxury of time and stress-free reservations. You can also check the weather and other important information to ensure a worth-it honeymoon.
Make an Itinerary
Next will be your itinerary. Lots of honeymoon destinations offer amazing travel packages and choosing the perfect one for you is ideal. Don’t be overwhelmed with too much traveling, this will take away the whole honeymoon vibe if you are too exhausted between logs. Always spare a ton of downtime with your spouse.

To help you get your head above the most important details, a checklist is paramount. This will let you have peace of mind and just focus on the actual honeymoon. Another thing, having a comprehensive checklist of the things-to-do and the must-haves will help you track your development and make sure everything is covered.
Plot your Expenses
First things first! Planning your expenses is definitely worth it. Excuse the pun but its true! One sure key to having a stress-free honeymoon is to plot your expenses. This will let you skip the trouble of paying for premium and let you have that general idea of how much everything will cost. If traveling abroad, convert your cash ahead. Bring only enough cash for your trip and only a bit of extra of miscellaneous incidentals. Never bring too many jewelries as this will attract unnecessary attention.
Bring only the Essentials
The most common mistake in backpack traveling is bringing a lot of unnecessary stuff. The general idea of traveling goes the same with planning for your honeymoon. This will jack-up the weight of your luggage and takes away the excitement of the honeymoon coz’ you’ll be bothered by your heavy bag. So, what do you really need to bring for your honeymoon? Apart from the obvious gear and apparel, here are some of the essentials that you must bring on your honeymoon.
Keeping all the really important stuff in a small purse will help you save time when you need them. You can also go for a Tote bag which does the same thing.
A must have, especially if you’re going for a beach honeymoon. Feeling the sand between your toes is such a surreal experience that you must not miss out!
Caps or Hats
Honeymooning in summer easily becomes a nuisance when there’s no shade. That’s why bringing a cap or hat eludes uneven tans and sores.
Sun Protection Lotion
This shares the same idea as bringing a hat. Sun protection lotions will protect you from too much sun and lets you enjoy strolling longer with your spouse outside.
Make sure you and your spouse are bringing all your necessary documents with you during your travels. Tickets, passports, booking references and other documents must have its own space in your bag for easy access.
We all love to glam up even after our big day, especially during our honeymoon photo shoots. A handy-dandy vanity bag easily becomes your best friend during these trips.
Who goes travelling without their gadgets? Though this is already an obvious inclusion, phones and cameras have their own set of proprietary stuff so including then in your list skips a lot of trouble.
Last but not least, a first aid kit. You’ll never know when accidents occur, so bringing with you a travel-friendly first-aid kit is a must!
