So, without further ado, let's highlight some great honeymoon advice that you would be wise to take heed of...
Prepare a Packing Checklist
Packing for a trip may seem straightforward, but be honest - how many of you have forgotten something essential and been caught unawares when you've arrived at your final destination? So, why not redeuce your stress by preparing (and meticulously sticking to!) a comprehensive honeymoon packing checklist.
To help you on your way (so to speak), we've prepared an in-depth list of anything and everything the Bride and Groom could ever need to take with them on their magical vacation. Feel free to check out the article right now and even take a print out and check each item off as you pack it up.
Luggage Tips & Tricks
Airlines these days are beefing up the costs for extra suitcases all over the place, so it's wise to take some time learning how to pack efficiently. It may seem all very simple and straightforward, but unless you can honestly tell us that you've never sat on a suitcase whilst your partner yanked on the zip like their life depended on it, then you know that's not true.
With that in mind, there's no better time than the present to take some tips from our team of experts on how to pack effectively and cram even more into your tiny little suitcases to avoid unwanted costs at the check-in desk.
Tie Up Loose Ends and Tackle Odd Jobs
Make sure that you have given someone the responsibility for tying up all the loose ends from the wedding – taking by any hired outfits, settling any bills (you will need to pay them on your return of course – there’s no getting away that easily!) etc. You may even be able to talk a kind mum or dad into coming over to your house and giving it a spring clean.
Don't forget Your Pets!
Our furry friends may not be taking centre stage right now, but it's imperative that they aren't forgotton about during this hectic time. Look to arrange for your pet to stay with a friend, relative or neighbour whilst you're away, or book them in for their own special holiday at a top notch cattery or kennels – you even get ones with TV’s in rooms these days!
As an absolute bare minimum, make sure that someone you trust has access to your property and is willing to go several times a day to change food/water and take them your pets for walks where necessary.
