You’re about to embark on a lifelong adventure with one-another! Be sure to start it off right with a fun and relaxing Honeymoon! This may be your first trip together or may be one of the longer trips you have taken, why not make it memorable and special to you both! Read on for our tips to planning the best Honeymoon ever!! And as always we recommend working with a Honeymoon specialist! It will save you time, money and stress!!
1. Don’t wait until the last minute to start planning!
Pushing this till the very end will likely lead to a more expensive and stressful trip. Take time out at the beginning of your wedding planning to determine you and your fiancés Honeymoon goals. It can actually be a nice break from the wedding planning—take your mind on vacation!
2. Decide on a budget range.
When starting your life together, it is key to plan your budget in advance. Knowing what is within your means will help you to stay under and not go over budget! Whether you plan to have a weeklong excursion across Europe, a couple weeks on the coast of an inmate island, or a few days at a nice stateside resort. Knowing what you can afford before the trip will make for a better experience overall!
3. Decide on the time of year!
You don’t necessarily have to Honeymoon immediately following saying “I DO”. If your DREAM honeymoon is traveling through Ireland in the spring, and your wedding stateside does not coincide with that season, NO worries! Just schedule your dream “vacay” when you and your partner have the time and when it works for your wants!!
4. Discuss your wishes and wants with your future spouse, find a compromise!
Does your future spouse-to-be dream of a Caribbean Cruise, while you spend your time thinking of a backpacking excursion across the coast of New Zealand? We recommend you both make a list of your top 5 destinations. Each of you go ahead and choose a place from each others list. Then do the research on both locations! Go with the one that is more comfortable for the two of you now! Keeping in mind you will have many years ahead together—plenty more vacations to come!
5. Book your dream Honeymoon with your Honeymoon Specialist!
Once you’ve narrowed down that perfect place, contact either:

Cindi Sanden at Awaken Travels
Both ladies are exceptional at what they do! Whether you want a cruise, a week at a resort or don’t know what you want yet! Get expert advice and let the professionals handle the stress, saving you TIME and MONEY!!
6. Plan ahead for the travel musts!
Does your honeymoon start the day after your wedding? Well you might want to reconsider that name change, if you’re traveling overseas your passport and ID need to match, so you may be better off waiting until after you return from the Honeymoon! Also, regarding your passport, make sure to apply for one at least 3 months prior to take off, they typically take 6-8 weeks to process!
7. Have Fun!
Remember this is the time for you Newlyweds to connect, relax, and begin your life together! Don’t forget to have a little FUN!!
