Ultimate Honeymoon Checklist Guide to Bookmark For Newly-Wed Couples

 Ultimate Honeymoon Checklist Guide to Bookmark For Newly-Wed Couples

Your honeymoon is the time when you and your partner get to know each other as husband and wife. You may have been dating, but take this time to get to know the person you're going to spend the rest of your life with. Undoubtedly, planning a honeymoon is stressful especially since most of the energy is devoted to the madness of wedding planning.

Don't panic! We have put together a basic checklist that will help you plan the most amazing honeymoon ever! Follow these simple steps and we guarantee your honeymoon will be the vacation of a lifetime! Let's take a look.

Honeymoon Checklist Guide

1. Planning in Advance

This should go without saying but can sometimes get lost in the flurry of wedding planning. Do not forget to plan your honeymoon! Not only would it be the first vacation for you two as husband and wife, but also a time to wind down from the wedding celebrations.

Talk to your partner about possible destinations

Budget the trip

Plan time off from work

Research offers from various travel agents for tour packages, honeymoon specials etc.

2. Reservations Galore

You want to be prepared for this trip before it even begins. Book all stays, transport options, airport transfers, sightseeing options, etc. Look up dining options and see whether you require prior reservations for the same. You want your honeymoon to be blissed out, and relaxing. You don't want to spend your time with your spouse scrambling to find transport or reservations. Don't leave anything to chance.

Book stay options (hotels, homestays, resorts etc)

Book transport to and fro airport/train station etc.

Book transport within the destination for daily use

Make dining reservations

Look for couples activities offered in the area and make reservations

3. Documents

If travelling internationally, check for visa requirements much ahead of the travel date. For most international travel, your passport needs to be valid for a minimum of six months: keep that in mind in case you have to renew your passport. Though we are in a digital age, it never hurts to have physical copies of your travel iternaries and documents in case of any emergency. It is best to be prepared.

Check passport validity

Apply for Visa (if required)

Make copies of all documents in case of emergency

4. Check COVID-19 Restrictions

The pandemic might seem like a distant dream, but many countries still have restrictions in place for international travellers. Look for these, and make arrangements accordingly. You don't want your trip interrupted by mandatory quarantines or specific vaccine requirements, make sure your information is accurate and up-to-date!

Check for entry requirements

Print vaccine certificate in case of emergency

Arrange for RT-PCR/Rapid tests as required

5. Timeline for Trip

No matter the duration of your trip, have a plan in place for your entire honeymoon. Many resorts offer couple activities like painting, sculpture, spa days etc. Do your research and chalk out a rough iternary. Sitting by the pool or beach sipping cocktails also counts as an activity! Remember, it is a trip for you to connect and bond with your partner - don't make it a strict timetable but have options in case the mood strikes.


Plan a rough iternary

Plan to see some new sights, and/or do an activity every day

Remember to sit back and chill!

6. Shopping List

Yes, shopping! Depending on what climate you are travelling to, you might need to purchase summer-wear, beach-wear, or winter clothes accordingly.

For beach/summer wear:

Pack swimsuits

Shorts, lighter clothing

Sunscreen! (very important!)

7. Don’t panic!

Most importantly, don't panic. Follow these easy steps and you are guaranteed to have the most stellar honeymoon! Remember, this time is just for your two - make the most of it. 

Final Words

We hope this checklist helps you plan an amazing and romantic honeymoon! Have a great time!

Pros and Cons of Having a Weekday Wedding!

 Pros and Cons of Having a Weekday Wedding!

Your wedding planning begins from the day your wedding date is finalized. And, a lot of factors are taken into account when picking the wedding date such as an auspicious time, whether the time of the year works for both of the families if it's cost-efficient and what not. But, despite all these things we can understand if you have reservations about having a weekday wedding. That’s why, to help you make the decision, we have come up with a pro and con list. Scroll below and see for yourself!

Pros & Cons of Having a Weekday Wedding

What are the Pros of a Weekday Wedding

1. Highly Cost Efficient

It's no surprise that having a weekday wedding is so much more cost-efficient compared to a weekend wedding. Not a lot of people get hitched during weekdays so you’ll have a lot of room for negotiations concerning the budget.

2. Vendors Will be Easily Available

Since not a lot of weddings take place on weekdays, the wedding vendors of your choice will easily be available to cater to your wedding. Be it the makeup artists or the wedding caterers, chances are you’ll be able to book your favourite ones without having to go back and forth with them.

3. Perfect For An Intimate Wedding

Since almost all of the guests will be working or will have other commitments, it might not be possible for everyone to be a part of your functions. This will work very well for you if you’re looking to have an intimate wedding. 

4. More Time for Setup

During the wedding season, vendors tend to take double bookings for the same dates. However, since you’ll be having a weekday wedding, the vendors will have more than enough time to focus on just your wedding and do everything with a free mind. Their creative juices will be at their max, ladies!

5. Additional Time for After Parties and Celebrations

The problem with weekend weddings is that people have work the next day or are not able to take more time off their schedule. But, if you have a weekday wedding, they will anyway be taking extra leaves. Use this to your advantage and extend your functions to after parties!

What are the Cons of a Weekday Wedding

1. A Lot of Guests Might Cancel

If you’re looking at having a grand wedding, chances are you’re gonna hear a lot of nos from your guests. Not a lot of the guests will be able to take leaves from their work or shift their schedule according to your weekday wedding functions.

2. Celebrations Can End Earlier 

If you have plans of extending your wedding until the wee hours then we ask you to reconsider cuz those of your guests who will be able to make it to your weekday wedding may not stay still long. Everyone will be in a rush so that their next day is not ruined.

3. You May Need a Later Starting Time for the Rituals

Again, as your wedding will be taking place on weekdays, a chunk of your wedding party may be heading straight from work or may go to work, go home and get ready then make it to your functions. This puts you in a fixed cut which means that all the rituals will start at a later time.

4. Vendors May Not Be On Top of Their Game

As a lot of vendors might not be doing work on the weekdays, chances are that their team members may have other commitments or other gigs to cater to. While the vendor may take the booking but it may be a possibility that they might not have their A team for your wedding functions.
