Tips for Planning, Finding & Booking your Dream Honeymoon

Need to plan your dream honeymoon but not sure where to start?

We know that planning a wedding can be a stressful process, and couples do not put nearly as much effort into finding an experienced honeymoon travel planner to help them with their honeymoon plans.

Many couples spend far more time planning their wedding vs their honeymoon, we save you time & money from the start

Honeymoon nightmares can be avoided, take the advice of Renee Meyer, owner-founder of Unforgettable Honeymoons, who has planned thousands of honeymoon packages in the last two decades.

"A honeymoon is an investment in a lifetime of memories" - and to protect that investment you will need to do a little homework first and find the best professionals to assist you in making the best choice


Honeymoon planning tip #1

Find an Expert Honeymoon Planner who is well-traveled who has positive reviews online from multiple sources

Beware of bloggers and blog web sites that offer travel planning services as they are usually not established travel agencies with years of experience

1. Choose an agency that specializes in Honeymoons : Choose a professional travel agency that specializes in honeymoons, or romantic travel ,and has been in the business at least 7 years or more, has a retail physical street location in addition to a strong internet presence with verified reviews on major review sites (that are not just recent reviews, but a history of good reviews)

2. Make sure they are rated with the Better Business Bureau - important, the travel agency should be rated an A or better by the Better Business Bureau (they will have a link on their website directly to the BBB) do not deal with an agency not rated by the BBB, and without the seal on their website they are not rated.

3. Are they a member of Iatan? Any reputable established travel agency is a member of Iatan ( www.iatan.org) the only true licensing for travel agents in the USA-this organization requires agents to carry 1 million dollars in errors/omissions insurance. You can go to iatan.org to do a search for the agency, it takes 2 minutes.

4. Personalized travel experience to the locations you are looking to book -double-check to see that the agent you are working (or someone in their agency) has personally traveled to the honeymoon locations they are promoting ask to see their photos. If they have really been there then they would have their own photos and stories to share with you. you will get a far better service from an agent who has been there, who can best prepare you for what to expect, and what to do when you arrive on your honeymoon.

5. Do they offer a 24/7 after-hours service? Make sure the honeymoon travel agency has a 24/7 after-hours number and email to use after hours. A truly great agency is there for their clients on weekends and evenings and will help you when you need it. Many couples are worried about things going wrong on their honeymoon, and if you travel, you take risks, and unexpected snags can occur, a good agent can handle and figure out any situation.


Honeymoon planning tip #2

Set a honeymoon package budget- and prepare to be flexible.

Before you can plan where to go, you need to plan for what you can afford to spend. Many couples opt for an all-inclusive resort which includes all your expenses ( meals/ drinks/ tips/ watersports) With this option, an all-inclusive honeymoon, your honeymoon budget can be very specific, and you will know upfront what you are going to spend on the entire honeymoon package.

our suggestion for your honeymoon package budget: Have a low/ medium and high budget. ( for example, we ideally can spend $3000 total for the entire honeymoon, but have the flexibility to go up to $4k if it is something that is beyond what we expect and a great value) also, consider staying on your honeymoon for a shorter period of time if it means getting what you really want.


Honeymoon planning tip #3

Create a honeymoon dream wish list together

Together, create your dream honeymoon package wish list and schedule a honeymoon planning night. Discuss where you have traveled before and what you liked and did not like about each location, then make a separate list of top honeymoon destinations that you've both always wanted to visit, and share them. After you have shared your honeymoon destination dream list, both the bride and groom should make a list of 3 must-haves. (separately)

These are 3 things that you feel that you need to have on your honeymoon and do not want to settle for less. also, talk about your personal travel style- what type of vacation do you most enjoy, would it be a honeymoon where you do a lot of exploring on your own, or part of a scheduled package that has preset excursions. Do you prefer to relax alone on a beach together and have private time, or enjoy meeting others and socializing?

Examples on your honeymoon dream wish list could be---

beachfront room - Jacuzzi tub on the balcony - swim with dolphins - swim-up pool bar- snorkeling off the beach -hiking to a waterfall- couples massage-

Discuss the must-haves, do a little compromising, and always choose a place that you have not been before so you can experience the newness of a destination together. Bring all this information you gathered to your travel agent- any good, well-traveled agent can take your information and present to you some good viable options.


Honeymoon planning tip #4

Make a goal to narrow your choices to three options


Do your research on the options you have narrowed down- Once 2 or 3 options have been presented, do your own research. Check out reviews, look at real photos online, and carefully peruse through each website of the resorts you are considering. Go with your gut feeling, its usually always right. Meyer mentions that many couples the first idea is usually the place they go, they just need to come full circle and check out all other options to make sure there is nothing else out there that speaks to their heart like their first idea


Honeymoon planning tip #5-

Do not let anyone rush you into a decision

Making your final decision: Meyer suggests not to pull the trigger until you feel absolutely confident and excited about your honeymoon package choice, and that in your heart you know this is the perfect place for your honeymoon. Any hesitation is an indication that it might not be a perfect choice, and not to ever feel pressured into making a decision prematurely

note: Often times a package can be put on hold with a small deposit while you are thinking about it, and then changed if need be to another location shortly thereafter.


Do not always rely on the advice of your friends

Couples will rely on their friends to give them honeymoon location ideas and advice which can sometimes be very helpful and other times lead to disappointment because our friends do NOT always have the same taste we do or the same expectations for luxury or service.

Your friends may think the Doubletree hotel chain is luxury, while you feel Four Seasons is luxury, if you want to take your friend's advice you'll need to know their base of comparison as well. A good well-traveled agent has a very broad base of comparison compared to the general public.

#2- Don't Skimp- It's your honeymoon, and it's once in a lifetime

Once you find the right package do not skimp by booking with a cheap online booking engine that only cares about your credit card number and will never speak to you!

Many couples search around for the cheapest deal for the honeymoon package they finally have decided on, perhaps a package that an agent helped them put together. It's great to find a good deal, and we love to find a bargain- but remember, this is your honeymoon- and you probably did not buy your wedding dress in a bargain basement sale or hire a photographer from Sears or JC penny.

The honeymoon is just as important as all the other elements of your wedding and quality is key. What couples do not realize is that the cheapest option usually provides the least amount of personal service before, during, and if needed after the travel is completed.

Thank you for your time, Renee Meyer
