Planning Your Honeymoon

There are a variety of different factors that need to be considered when it comes to planning your honeymoon and making sure that it’s the vacation you’ve been dreaming of. Let’s go over some of the most pressing things to consider and discuss why exactly they’re so important.


Thinking about when you want your honeymoon to be is a great first step. It’s important that you have enough time to plan, especially if you’re going on a bigger trip. If you’re planning on a staycation, then you may have a little more flexibility in terms of how long it’ll take for you to plan your honeymoon.


Picking a location is one of the first things you should do when planning your honeymoon. If you’re not sure where to begin, ask yourself the following questions…

  • Are you planning on a staycation or going somewhere further away? While going abroad may seem like a glamorous option, a staycation can be a great way to relieve some stress and save some money.
  • Do you want to go somewhere tropical with a beach? Are you looking for a winter getaway in a cabin?
  • How much money are you looking to spend?


There are so many great places to choose from and it can be overwhelming to think about all the different options. If you have enough time, consider making a list of possible places and then returning to it in the future.


One important thing to consider is how long after your wedding you want your honeymoon to be. Some people prefer to have their honeymoon be right after their wedding, while others prefer a little bit of a break.


Personally, we love when couples choose to take a break in between their wedding and honeymoon. This is a great way to make sure that you have time to rest and be truly prepared. Plus, it can give you something to look forward to after your wedding is over!


It’s no secret that traveling can be expensive. If you’re in the early stages of planning your honeymoon, consider starting by putting together a realistic budget. This can be a good way to narrow down all your options and make sure that you’re on the right track financially.

If you’re including a honeymoon fund in your wedding registry, then it may be difficult to know how much you’re going to receive. It’s best to underestimate the amount that you may receive and then upgrade certain aspects of your honeymoon if you end up receiving more money than you thought you would originally.
