|Although 'traditionally' the man's role in the stages leading up to the big wedding day, more and more couples are now planning their post-wedding relaxation together, and after all isn't that what marriage is all about? doing things together.|
Honeymoons are often the most expensive holiday a couple are likely to undertake. Extra money is normally spent on more luxurious accommodation and other elements. Choosing an exotic location is very romantic and popular amongst newly-weds nowadays. Popular destinations like the Caribbean, Bali, the Maldives and Sri Lanka all offer honeymooners just what they are really after, a sunny, hot tropical island retreat with fine, palm-fringed beaches, fronted by five star hotels that offer a whole range of services designed to make people feel more relaxed and comfortable.
It is worth planning a honeymoon properly and if necessary seeking out the advice of a specialist travel agent or two. Specialist travel agents will be able to give expert advice on the best honeymoon to suit both your budget and more importantly, your requirements. They will also help to advise you on the best time of year to go on your honeymoon.
Try to bear in mind that if you change your name at marriage, you might like to start thinking about changing it on your passport. A change of information on a passport can take up to three months, so allow plenty of time to arrange this before the honeymoon date. Also make sure that you and your partner have adequate visas and documents to visit your chosen destination.
It is perhaps worth bearing in mind that even specialist honeymoon itineries still carry cancellation fees and are sometimes completley non-refundable.
