Plan a Stress-Free Honeymoon

Plan a Stress-Free Honeymoon

You’ve just gotten engaged, and as excited as you are to get married, you’re also stressed about the details that go into planning a wedding. How are you supposed to plan the honeymoon on top of the wedding? Don’t stress, we’re here to help! We have tips that will make the honeymoon planning that much easier. 

Honeymoon Locations

First, narrow your search down to the country you want to visit on your honeymoon. The price of the resorts will be based on when you're visiting that specific resort. Have in mind that the stay will be more expensive in peak season. 

We recommend searching for all-inclusive resorts. Sandals Resorts offers all-inclusive honeymoon packages that will make your life so much easier. They have special, private suites called Love Nest Suites that are designed for honeymooners. They have different locations and rooms to choose from depending on the couple’s preferences. Some of the packages even include a butler that will tend to all your needs. Make good use of websites like meliapackages.com that have packages for hotels, flights, and cars. Other great websites for honeymoon planning are Trip Advisor and Expedia.


Travelers check their passport in advance to confirm the expiration date. The U.S. Department of State recommends that the passport doesn’t expire within six months of the date of your trip. Travelers should make copies of their passports in case they get lost or stolen. It is important to plan ahead because some countries require a visa to enter the country. Travelers may find a list of countries that require tourist visas at passportinfo.com. Other countries only require a Tourist Card, which is a special fee charged to tourists entering that country.

Vaccinations/Health Insurance

It is important for travelers to schedule an appointment with their primary doctor for a check-up prior to leaving the country. Travelers should let their doctor know where they will be traveling so he/she can determine if any vaccinations will be needed.

It is also crucial that couples purchase health insurance that covers any kind of health issues they might have while traveling out of the country.

Credit Cards/Money

Travelers should check with their bank to see if their bank cards work outside of The U.S. They should also make copies of their credit cards in case they get lost or stolen. Save your bank's contact information. Purchase clothing that has hidden pockets and carry valuables when going around town. Remember, it is always better to be over-prepared than under-prepared.

Honeymoon Weather/Packing

Check the weather of the country couples will be traveling to. Check weather a few days before travel and pack accordingly. Make a packing checklist so you don’t forget any items. Take clothing pieces that can be mixed and matched to avoid overpacking. Couples should make sure to pack an extra change of clothing in their carryon in case their luggage is lost or stolen.
