The most exciting phase after your wedding is to go on a honeymoon. Planning a wedding is a stressful phase, however, a honeymoon is supposed to be that escape where you forget all that stress. This is a great way to unwind after exhausting wedding preparation. A general view is that ideal time to go on honeymoon is right after the wedding, and many couples do so. If you cannot go right after the wedding, plan in few months while your wedding is fresh. However, there is not a hard and fast rule regarding going on the honeymoon, but the tradition goes that a couple should celebrate honeymoon soon after marriage.
There are a few factors that come into play when deciding the time to go for the honeymoon:
If you want to enjoy the travel as well as your entire trip, don’t leave right on your Walima day. The couple will be tired and exhausted finding it too difficult to travel in a relaxed manner. Many couples leave right after their wedding to maximize their time away from the stress, however, in reality, it will have a deleterious effect on honeymoon. The same challenges are faced by those couples who intend to leave the very next day of their wedding.
While you make reservations for the honeymoon, keep in mind the weather conditions of your destination. You must gain accurate information about the weather. Don’t travel if there is a hurricane predicted in the same dates of your honeymoon. Moreover, if your destination is going to be in cold places, don’t book when there is a prediction about snowstorm near or during your traveling dates.
Weddings are expensive. And after you get married, you might realize that you are not left with ample cash to celebrate your honeymoon. The key here is that you can save a lot of cash and celebrate your dream honeymoon if you plan things at the right time. For this, you can even delay your honeymoon for a few months to get the best deals on flights and accommodations. For example, Tahiti, an island in French Polynesia, is one of the most famous honeymoon destinations, offers discounts on flights and hotels from November to March.
So, the couples looking for affordable rates should go for shoulder season i.e. the time frame between high and low season of travel. During this season, the flow of tourists decreases and the prices of hotels also drop. An important thing to keep in mind is that this season varies according to the destination.
