If you’re in the middle of planning your big day, overwhelmed by invites, mood boards and DIY decorations, planning your honeymoon might take a back seat in the order of priorities! However, this could be a break you’ll both need after all the preparation and stress, as well as the chance for an unforgettable experience! At The Insurance Emporium, we want everyone to be able to get the most from life. Which is why we’re sharing our guide on how to choose your perfect honeymoon destination!

Set your budget

Working out how much you can afford to spend could be one of the biggest factors determining where you choose to visit. Make sure to take into account smaller costs, such as transport, food and activities while you’re there. Also, if you want to save a bit of extra cash, why not request vouchers or money towards your honeymoon instead of traditional wedding gifts?

Time is of the essence

How much time will you be able to devote to your honeymoon? Can you get several weeks off work, or do you have a lack of annual leave at the moment? Will you be able to take time away whenever you wish, or only certain parts of the year? If you can’t take lots of time off – don’t worry! You could always have a smaller mini-moon straight after the wedding, leaving the main event for later!

‘Tis the season

Consider what the weather might be like in other parts of the world during different parts of the year. The southern hemisphere, for example, has winter during our summer – so you might want to avoid certain countries depending on seasonality! If there’s a particular place you want to go, you might have to plan your wedding date around this, or wait a little while before jetting off!

What’s your vibe?

The activities you like to get up to on holiday could be a good indicator of where you should honeymoon. If you want sun, sea and sand, getting away to a tropical paradise might be perfect! Or a city break for those who want to take in some art and culture? If you’re more into adventure, exploring and the great outdoors, why not consider somewhere with fantastic walks or mountains?

It’s easy with wedding planning for one person to get carried away organising everything! It might be a good idea to work together when choosing your honeymoon to make sure it’s what you both want. You could try making separate lists of priorities before going over them to find where you agree and disagree. Remember, this could be the biggest getaway you plan – so you’ll both want to get the most from it!

Hopefully this guide will help you find the perfect honeymoon destination for you and your spouse-to-be!
