After the wedding rush & stress is over, a couple really needs a breather and some quality time with each other and honeymoon gives you exactly that! After searching for the right wedding invitation cards, wedding decor and other things, it comes down to searching the honeymoon destinations. The mini-vacation for rejuvenation needs some planning in order to be enjoyed to the fullest. We offer you the pointers to keep in mind while looking for one.

Make a list of your top picks

Candid Tales

If there are a couple of honeymoon destinations you’ve waited to visit forever, write them down. Make a list of your dream destinations and discuss ideas with your partner. Remember you just need a starting point with the list initially. Worry about the logistics later, after you have a few options ready. This is a great opportunity to really go to one getaway both of you have longed to see for yourselves. It will also give you an idea of each other’s bucket list that you can explore later in your married years.

Research well

The internet will be your best friend in this situation. Start looking early and you’ll be surprised by how many discounts and smart ideas to cut down your costs will be available. Look for advice from other couples and travellers, surf through blogs like WeddingWire's for top destinations; take the peak season costs into account and any offers that may be floating around at that point. You might even want to consider offbeat destinations if you want to avoid the crowd. Remember that there’ll always be a way out; you’ll just need to work a little extra for it.

Consider your finances

Ask yourselves a few questions like, what is doable in terms of logistics? What are you looking for - adventure, a quiet romantic getaway, or a mix of everything? Choose your location accordingly and check prices while discussing how to pay for the trip. Do use the hacks and discounts you find on the internet to add to your benefits.

Don’t forget time constraints
