After a long time of wishing and praying, you two are finally together. You must have been so tired and stressed because of the wedding and undoubtedly feel like you deserve a break. The honeymoon is supposed to be a break, but taking it right after the wedding can be another sort of a stress as you need to plan it prior to the wedding too! So take a break for a few days if not weeks and then decide on where to go, for how long etc. and have a more successful honeymoon!
Most couples like to target the wedding season making the honeymoon places also clogged up during that time. It might sound wonderful but if you are sharing the same destination, same hotel accommodation at great ocean road with a hundred other couples there is no uniqueness or novelty in it for you. So take some time off after a few weeks subsequent to the wedding. You can then slowly plan a trip of a few days, perhaps abroad even. Have you considered Australia? Lonely continent it is, but Australia offers some magnificent stops and breathtaking views; they also have natural wonders, including hiking, trekking, beaches and more, man-made marvels and sensational events and activities.
As mentioned before, post-wedding season is honeymoon season and many are choosing the same exotic places you are targeting. Off season will have less expensive places, more space and less crowded beaches etc. So when you are planning make sure you research the web to find out when the season is, where you are going. It won’t be the same everywhere in the world. Between December and February Australia is a bit hotter making the tourist numbers low. You can use this window to have a good time in lonely beaches with white sands and blue waters.
Save while you enjoy
Something that I do is, look around for air fare deals; one in a while, airlines have “buy-two-get-one” offers. Hotel booking sites have many offers for . Don’t forget to compare several sites and providers to get the best out of the amount you are spending. Just because you are going on at reassured holiday, doesn’t mean that you have to spend way over the top! Whilst looking for a unique and not-so-full getaway, you can make every cent count by being tactful in reserving ahead of time, checking for public transportation rather than hiring a vehicle, comparing costs, trying out local food and so much more.
