In the midst of wedding planning, there’s one other (really exciting!) piece to the puzzle that you need to figure out. Yes, we’re talking about the honeymoon. There are a few tips and tricks to ensure you have the best time in that dreamy destination, and we’re sharing them below.

Check the Forecast

Before you get your heart set on a specific destination, it’s smart to check what the weather forecast looks like during that time of year. You don’t want to get stuck on the beach during your destination’s rainiest season!

Think Beyond the Travel Guides

Trying to plan what to do once you get there? It’s 2019 -- gone are the days of brochures having the best spots in town. Click on over to Yelp or Instagram for an easy way to find unique adventures and ways to live like the locals.

Pack Strategically

The stress you’ll feel during the week leading up to your wedding is no jokeā€¦ So why add to it? Instead of waiting until the week of your wedding to pack for your honeymoon, go ahead and get as much done as early as you can so it’s one less thing you have to worry about.

Consider Timing

If you want to avoid all of that last-minute vacation prep stress before your wedding, consider having a day or two between your big day and the honeymoon. This will give you a little bit of time to recover and get ready for your honeymoon.

Use a Travel Agent

If all else fails, don’t be afraid to use a travel agent. When you already have quite the full plate just trying to get down the aisle, it’s sometimes nice to be able to pass off the mundane travel tasks that you don’t have time for.
