Honeymoon planning can be easy or complicated, depending on the trip you want to take. Since stays at all-inclusive resort hotel on a beach or cruises with limited ports of call don’t require multiple lodging or transportation arrangements, they make for easier honeymoons.
If you’re on a tight wedding budget, you and your sweetheart might want to take a honeymoon closer to home. If you’re both baseball fans, for example, a whirlwind tour of several cities with major league fields would make for a memorable honeymoon.
Here are some tips to help you plan your honeymoon:
- Pick a destination together. Discuss with your soon-to-be spouse what activities or sights you want to see together. You might want to pick a location where neither of you has traveled previously. Or plan your honeymoon around an event that brought the two of you together.
- If the bride plans to change her name, she should book her tickets in her maiden name, since she won’t have time between the ceremony and the honeymoon to change official ID materials and her passport. Airport security can be unforgiving when a traveler’s ticket name doesn’t match her ID.
- Research and plan for what you’ll need to pack. If you’re leaving the country, get your passport and visa (if needed) ready. The U.S. Department of State provides plenty of information about travel warnings and alerts abroad based on political uprisings and natural disasters, plus information on required immunizations. You can register your travel plans with the U.S. Department of State to help ensure you’re easy to reach should your family need to contact you or should an emergency arise abroad.

- And don’t forget to research typical temperatures for the time of year you’ll be honeymooning so you can pack the proper clothes.
- Whether you’re flying overseas or driving to a nearby locale, invest in medical evacuation and travel assistance memberships. On Call International’s programs provide help for mishaps ranging from lost passports to lost baggage to canceled or postponed flights. And if you get sick or injured while on your honeymoon, On Call can help you find medical care – and get back home. Visit www.oncallinternational.com to learn more.
