Let’s dive in to see 7 top tips on how to create an ideal Caribbean honeymoon for your partner.
1. Start Planning Early To Get The Best Deals!
Soon you decide your wedding venue, date, caterer, photographer, planner, etc. start planning about your honeymoon. The earlier you plan, the sooner you get deals, and the less you have to worry about it. Do you want to go for 3 weeks or just for 5 days? How far you want to travel? Do you care more about incredible nature, stunning views, or unique experiences? These are all essential questions that you and your partner should answer together. And if you have a specific destination in mind, just get to it!
2. Renew/Obtain Your Passport
If you have a passport, check if it needs renewal. And if you don’t have it, get it soon. Sometimes, there are time restrictions placed by authorities on when you can get passport for specific locations. So try to get it at your earliest!
Now, after you are done with the booking process, have a little cocktail with your partner!
3. Decide Your Accommodation
All-inclusive resorts are perfect for a honeymoon, especially for couples who’re tight on a budget. Just imagine you are away from home, so you have to purchase water, coffee, cocktail, snack, and every single meal on the spot. This scenario does not scream relaxation, as you will have to worry about spending dollars every time you’re thirsty or hungry. Our advice is to weigh all your budgetary options before you plan your honeymoon.
4. Go Shopping
All newlyweds want to look cute on their honeymoon – and they should care about it! It would be great if you start shopping early like 3 to 4 weeks before leaving. This strategy will never STRESS you out.
But before you shop, know what climate you will be getting on your chosen destination, keep your eyes open for sale items and snag them without wasting much time. This is called smart planning as you’ll be going to fill your suitcase with the best affordable things.
5. Schedule A Day To Rest
One of the biggest mistakes couples make on honeymoon is that they try to visit too many places each day, that they don’t have the opportunity to rest. Finding that balance between fun and rest is an art, so make sure you do it well. Also, give yourself enough time to rest in between your big day and your honeymoon. If you don’t take much from this post, take this advice seriously.
6. Stay Connected
While you’re enjoying your trip, let your loved ones know you’re safe. Send photos to the family every now and then, but don’t get busy catching up with friends on the Facebook or Instagram.
Relax. Lay on the beach all day. Drink all your favorite drinks. Eat all you can eat. Hang with the locals. Go for an adventure. Take pictures. Enjoy each other.
