10 Mistakes People Make While Planning the Honeymoon

The wedding day, the D day comes, often sooner than expected, the guests all have a merry time, and you get hooked for life! The words might sound simple, but the entire show might prove to be more tiresome than you could ever imagine! The being said, you always have the incentive to wear off all the tiredness…yes, we are talking about your honeymoon! The fall-back holiday, that is the right of all newly-weds! However, for your romantic getaway to be more than just a regular pleasure trip, you’ll have to ensure that you don’t commit any of these 10 most common mistakes that generally honeymooners make, that too in the planning stage! So, here’s how it goes:


You must acknowledge the fact, that this isn’t merely a pleasure trip. It is your honeymoon, and for all practical reasons, it will set the tone of the life-long bond that you will be sharing with your better-half, and ending up in tattered room might not be your best bet. Hence, even if you have to choose for a fairly inexpensive destination, or cut down on the number of days, do not go overboard with budgeting!

       Too much to do

Planning a honeymoon can be extremely exciting, and may lead you to believe that it is the best time to travel to all the impeccable places that you’ve itching to visit for a long time now! After-all, it’s your first getaway with the love of your life! While this proposition may sound appealing, but it may not be a good idea after all! Simply because, this getaway is meant for the two of to spend some quality time together instead of hopping on and off tour buses and switching hotels.

    Going to a place you wish to explore

If you book a tour to a place that has always been on a bucket list, be prepared to miss out on a lot of things that you may have wanted to do, places that are a must visit and food that you should not miss for the world. Given that you’d eventually end up wanting to spend much more time with your better half than indulging in these things, at the end of the trip, you’ll feel cheated!

     Not asking for upgrades

This is your time, and it is on you to make the best of it. Ask for upgrades. Don’t be modest. Don’t hesitate. After all, a suite room, a romantic touch with flowers and candles or a welcome kit especially designed for honeymooners, may all be at stake!

       Not taking up any activity at all

While, to some the idea of laying on the beach, getting tanned and lazing around with the partner may seem to be the perfect plan for a honeymoon, let’s get something clear. It is not. Relaxed time and romantic settings are sure a great idea, but you should also plan an adventure or two, or simply a live show or concert that you can revel in, while at your honeymoon! This will in fact, help you bond better! Seriously, trust us on this one!

        Choosing to go with a group

Some people are a little too sceptic of going on a trip all by themselves, and end up either asking some friends to join in or simply opting in for a group tour! This may, well, be one of the biggest blunders you can make. Simply because, you don’t want anyone else to tell you when to get out from the bed, not at least when you’re honeymooning (if you know what we mean!) and more so, because you don’t want others to give you those unwanted stares when you share a small hug, or give a peck to your partner!

     Choosing a busy family hotel

That’s a big no! Stay in a hotel that has a romantic setting, and is known for entertaining couples. You surely do not want your romantic moments to get hampered by a toddlers screaming and crying around their way in the hotel lobby, or worst learning to swim in that exotic swimming pool!

      Carrying too big a luggage

This is the time for you to unwind, and enjoy a relaxed intimate time with your partner. So, make sure you don’t pack a ton of luggage! Try to travel as light as possible. This will help you have a hassle free travel experience, while also ensuring that you enjoy your time to the most!

       Over Planning

Don’t go over-board with the planning, and do not plan every single minute that you’re going to spend on the trip. Moreover, ensure that your tour gives you enough space and time to laze around and enjoy some intimate time together!

       Not keeping a tab on the weather

Wherever is it that you plan to go, doubly check the weather conditions that prevail at the time of your travel, lest you might end up being trapped in your hotel room, unable to enjoy the surroundings, which b the way we’re sure you wouldn’t mind!
