Plan Your Dream Honeymoon:Travel Tips from an Expert

Looking for tips and ideas while planning your honeymoon? Destination I Do Magazine turned to the help of an expert for some advice. EverAfterHoneymoons.com's expert Katie took her love of traveling and turned it into a job – honeymoons!  Katie provides tips on how to create your dream honeymoon and peruse featured destinations. As a travel expert and honeymoon-planning aficionado, Katie has written some must-do’s when planning your honeymoon. Here are some basic tips she gives to any couple in the planning stages:

1. If you're looking to relax on a beautiful beach for your honeymoon, don't fly too far from home! Find the nearest coastline, this way you can spend more of your budget on a great hotel, spa and fun activities rather than on your flights. An added bonus is more time honeymooning, less time traveling!

2. If there is any activity you want to do during your honeymoon then make sure schedule it ahead of time. A safari, bus tour, spa package, zip lining, wine tasting or snorkeling... whatever you imagine you and your sweetie doing definitely look into it ahead of time.

3. The number one thing she reports hearing from couples is how thankful they were to have their first day or two of the honeymoon to recuperate. After all the wedding day stress, traveling and time changes don't try to load the first day full of activities. Take a day or two to relax, sleep, and unwind.

4. Give yourself a day or two after the wedding before departing on your trip. This way you can relax, pack and spend a little more time with out of town wedding guests. Plus it is usually cheaper and easier to fly on a Monday or Tuesdaythan on a Sunday.

5. Talk about what you will want to do during your honeymoon with your fiancé! If one of you just wants to relax on a beach and the other wants to go on adventures then figure out a way to compromise! Maybe alternate a day of relaxing followed by a day full of activities, or you can split your honeymoon between two different destinations.

6. Consult an expert! Their familiarity and experience can help you decide on the right destination, advise on the best hotels, request upgrades and find you the best deals.
