A Grooms Guide for honeymoon planning, no sweat!  Here are some tips to help you plan an awesome honeymoon.

You are surprised that more work is involved than getting down on one knee?  You’ve had to listen to bands, interview photographers, search for a reception location and make sure your soon to be bride is happy.  And now you’ve discovered that it’s the groom’s job to plan the honeymoon. While some couples will plan the honeymoon together, it is traditional for the groom to be in charge of the honeymoon plans. Where do you start?

One place not to start is the internet unless it is for inspiration only.  Do not book your honeymoon by yourself on the internet, you want your honeymoon to be the kick start to wedded bliss not a honeymoon nightmare.  You and your bride have spent time and money on a beautiful wedding, do not fall short on the honeymoon.   Call a professional!

Here are some things to consider to get the ball rolling:

  • Plan early. The best resorts can sell out up to a year in advance. Nine months prior to the honeymoon is a good time to start.  If you do not have nine months, no fear!  A travel professional always have options.
  • What do you like to do together? Do you like to sit on the beach or site see together? Do you share a hobby, like wine or hiking? You can add some of these elements to your honeymoon to make it even more exciting.
  • Consider the food. There is nothing worse than being in a resort that offers nothing that you enjoy eating. Check to make sure your resort has plenty of dining options.  You may be able to request menus or offerings in advance.  If you or your bride have food allergies make sure you tell the travel professional before the planning begins.  There are resorts that will cater to your nutritional concerns.
  • Surprise her, like a dinner for two on the beach or a couple’s massage. It’s the little details that will get you brownie points for years to come. For those of you that up for a daring surprise, keep the honeymoon location a secret until you arrive at the airport!
