5 Things NOT to Forget for Your Honeymoon
Lots of articles are written about what NOT to forget for your wedding day. Checklists abound for all of the things to be sure to remember for the special occasion itself. But let’s not forget the honeymoon. Here’s a quick list of things you want to be sure NOT to forget for your romantic time away:
1. Transportation Details
Don’t forget your plane tickets, rental car confirmation numbers, maps, etc. – all those things that you’ll need to get where you’re going, and to get around when you get there.
2. Pack for the Weather
Depending on where you’re going on your romantic getaway, and what the weather will be like where you’re going, packing your wardrobe for your trip might be challenging. Everything from swimsuits, snorkels and masks, to rain ponchos, parkas and gloves – make the room to take these things with you so you don’t have to purchase them when you get where you’re going!
Many people plan to travel out of the country for their honeymoon. If this is your plan, be sure to carry a valid passport with you at all times. Take care of your passport renewal ahead of time. Having your marriage license, or at least a copy of the license, will be important in some areas, to be able to confirm that you are married.
4. Travel Insurance
No one wants to have any emergencies arise on their honeymoon, but the truth of the matter is that unexpected things can happen at any time on any trip. Having travel insurance to cover those unforeseen expenses will relieve stress if the time comes when you actually need to use it, and will provide peace of mind even if you don’t end up using it.
5. Your Romantic (and gracious) Spirit
We all have dreams of what the perfect honeymoon looks like – romance, relaxation, adventure, etc. But being with your new spouse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, away from all ‘normal’ things isn’t always an easy adjustment. Be gracious and forgiving to one another, as you get accustomed to being in each other’s space.
Your honeymoon can be a dream-come-true, but it won’t happen without some advance preparation. Planning for transportation and weather, having proper identification (RushMyPassport.com is an excellent and respected agency for taking care of any passport issues you might encounter), purchasing travel insurance, and deciding to be gracious as well as romantic toward one another while you’re on your trip can help make your honeymoon dreams come true.
