Regardless of when you get married, there are specific honeymoon mistakes made by couples leading to a trip that simply isn’t enjoyable. Getting married isn’t the same as it used to be. Back in the 1950s, the average for marriage was 16. However, the average age today is nearly 30.
This has provided couples with a new set of challenges. Some of the new challenges have caused several mistakes to be made. Here are the top five honeymoon mistakes couples are making today.
Taking the Kids, a Huge Honeymoon Mistake
Since single parenthood is far more popular than it used to be, some couples already have children when they get married. It’s a huge mistake to take the kids with you. In fact, it may be best to choose an adult-only resort for your honeymoon. This will ensure you get plenty of time together without interruption.
Worrying about Price (Most Common Honeymoon Mistake Made by Couples)
Bargain hunting has a time and a place. It’s not a good way to go when you’re planning a honeymoon. Choosing the right destination and trip is very important and the price shouldn’t be the deciding factor. It’s okay to have a budget, but making your decision simply because it’s a bargain is a bad idea.
Sometimes the wedding gets in the way and you forget to plan the honeymoon. This is a huge mistake. You will pay more for a last-minute honeymoon than you will if you plan ahead. Waiting too long can make it hard to get the right suite, book the right resort and have the time of your life on your honeymoon.
Make sure you talk about the honeymoon early on and start planning immediately. This is almost as important as the wedding and deserves some of your time. Make sure you don’t make this honeymoon mistake or you may be settling for the second rate.
Booking a Bed & Breakfast
Bed & Breakfasts may seem attractive, but this is another honeymoon mistake. When you book a bed & breakfast, there’s no guarantee of privacy. You could end up staying with strangers in the room next door and the “do not disturb” sign only goes so far. Make sure you book a place with guaranteed privacy.
Forgetting the Weather, Another Common Honeymoon Mistake
Weather will make a huge difference when you travel to a new place for your honeymoon. If you book a place and you forget that it might be the rainy season, you may not have a great honeymoon. Make sure you consider the weather when booking your trip.
