Not Picking a Destination As Per Your Other Half & Your Vibe

Many times, couples end up going to destinations that are either trending or that someone around them has visited before. We strongly recommend against it as you and your other half should pick a honeymoon destination basis the vibe that you two have. If you both are beach babies, it makes no sense to go to a city destination!

Not Leaving Your Phone Alone

Another common mistake that couples end up making on their honeymoon is to not leave their phones alone. While it is exciting to take everything live on social media, it is better to limit your screen time and not get distracted.

Not Appreciating the Local Customs and Traditions

Please remember that you are going to someone else’s land where they have their own set of customs and traditions. Respect their rituals and try reading or learning about them beforehand so that you don’t end up doing something opposite and disrespecting them!

Overspending & Not Going With a Budget

The easiest thing to do on your honeymoon is to overspend. I mean, how can you not? It can be so tempting to shop or end up spending a bomb on a night out. But, it’s also one of the biggest mistakes you can make on your honeymoon. Don’t forget that you and your other half are starting a new life and there will be plenty of other things where you’ll have to spend a bomb once you’re back from the honeymoon. By setting a budget and sticking to it, you can ensure a worry-free honeymoon.

Not Making Bookings Beforehand

No matter what time of the year you are planning on going for your honeymoon, we recommend making bookings well in advance. Even during the off-season, bookings are a must to have a better schedule and to even get a fair share of idea about the budget.

Not Keeping Resting Time in the Schedule

We can imagine just how exciting it is to be in a new location with the love of your life and explore what the city or country has to offer. But, don’t forget that you and your other half need some downtime too. A honeymoon is for relaxation and quality time with your other half!

Ignoring the Weather Conditions

Not considering the weather conditions is a big mistake when picking your honeymoon destination. You may have always wanted to visit a specific country or city with your other half but if the weather conditions are not favorable when you’re planning to go, that location can lead to disappointment.
