How to Plan the Perfect the Honeymoon

Today, part seven of our eight-part series, A Guy’s Guide to Getting Hitched.

It may be most fun part of wedding planning: your honeymoon. Plan it right, and you’ll have a lifetime of memories. Screw it up, and you’ll hear about it for decades. How to make the most of your ‘moon.

Don’t rush.
Jetting off the morning after your wedding might sound romantic, but the reality might not be if you’re exhausted or antsy to get back to work. Pick a time when you can truly relax.

Don’t write off all-inclusive.
It’s not all mediocre buffets and watered-down drinks; an all-inclusive deal at a high-end resort can save you dough and the stress of planning.

Make room for down time.
Virgin brides may have gone the way of the dodo, but honeymoon sex should still be special – and plentiful. Don’t hang-glide and snorkel yourselves to exhaustion.

This is a once in a lifetime occasion; it should be a once-in-a-lifetime, or at least first-in-a-lifetime, destination. Go somewhere new to both of you.

Don’t pay.
Forgo the fine china and put your honeymoon on your registry using a service like this one. Exotic cocktails taste all the sweeter when someone else has paid for them.

March to your own beat.
Don’t get caught up with honeymoon conventions. If a sunset dinner on the beach sounds like a bore, then skip it. Similarly, if mountain biking is your idea of a hot date, then go for it. Romance comes in many forms.

  1. Thank you for mentioning the benefits of a honeymoon registry and describing the attributes behind this increasingly mainstream registry option for engaged couples.

    It is great to see how popular the honeymoon registry is becoming. When Traveler’s Joy first started accepting Members over five years ago, we realized there were a large number of engaged couples that were not satisfied with the diversity of the traditional wedding registry market. Since then, the honeymoon registry has become a mainstream option for brides and grooms and the industry has experienced significant growth.

    We are proud to have helped tens of thousands of couples honeymoon at destinations they may never have considered – a great feeling for everyone at Traveler’s Joy.

    I encourage you to contact us with any questions about our service. Most importantly, enjoy your honeymoon!

    Best Regards,
