How to Get Ready For Your Honeymoon Travel - Leave the Stress and Get Ready for Romance

Weddings are extremely stressful, in planning as well as executing and that's why you need an amazing honeymoon to relax and romance. Here's how to honeymoon right.


Pick the Destination

When it comes to wedding planning usually everyone in the family has an opinion on everything from the venue to the dress, cake...etc. but the honeymoon is all yours to decide. Now tension between the two of you might arise but keep calm and know that the perfect honeymoon destination does not exist. First, sit down and discuss what kind of honeymoon you would like, adventurous, romantic, cultural, exploring nature or ultra-romantic. Next, pick five destinations that suit your requirements. After you have done this do some research on each destination and narrow it down to two options. This way it's much easier to pick the right destination.


Book Your Holiday

Before you book your holiday, the first thing you should do is to set a budget as it helps you narrow down three important things – destination, holiday and hotel, and of course, it gives you a good idea on how much you will be spending. This way you won't get any unpleasant surprises at the end of the honeymoon.
Book a package. You might think "oh no we want to do everything our own way" but it's going save you a lot of money, time and hassle as these packages can include everything from flights to accommodation and tours as well. Many a travel agent in Sri Lanka the likes of Aitken Spence Holidays organize honeymoon packages that include a stay at a resort at somewhere exotic. The package will include fine dining amidst stunning locations and activities like scuba diving, whale watching, and couple's spa treatments.


Choose the Right Hotel

Your dream honeymoon can turn into the worst nightmare if you stay at a bad hotel. There'll be no mood for romance with leaking bathrooms, food poison from funky food and impolite service staff. So how do you book hotel paradise and not hotel Transylvania? First, do your homework; your honeymoon is not the time to experiment. Read up on reviews on Trip Advisor and the hotel's Facebook and other social media pages to find out what previous guests have to say.
The saying "the early bird gets the worm" is never truer when it comes to booking hotels. Book early and save time and avoid being overbooked. Most hotels have early bird offers where you need to book at least a month ahead of arrival to get exciting discounts.
Let the hotel know that you're on honeymoon. Some resorts arrange chocolates on arrival and other complementary services like a free dinner.


What to Pack

Pack smart and you can honeymoon right without having to carry multiple heavy suitcases and bag everywhere. There's no need to pack 10 pairs of shoes or all your electronic gadgets for your honeymoon. Check Accuweather or any other reliable source to find out the weather of the destination you're travelling to and then pack according to that. Leave out things that take up too much space unless they are necessary and limit your baggage to an amount that you are comfortable carrying around. Finally, invest in a good camera because so that 10-50 years after you'll be looking at amazing photos of the beginning of your journey of wedded bliss.


Have Fun!

Relax and romance. Forget the rest of the world and focus on the love. This is the beginning of many adventures together get the best out of your experience. Treat yourself to luxurious spa treatments, embark on thrilling escapes like dune bashing or whale watching, take moonlight walks along beaches and dance to the rhythm of love in the air!
