36839112One of the most exciting aspects of planning a wedding is looking forward to your honeymoon. Celebrate your nuptials with a weekend honeymoon, a type of honeymoon with short duration occurring Friday or Saturday through Sunday. Preparing for a weekend honeymoon can seem every bit as daunting as planning a week long escape. Look forward to your honeymoon and read on to learn helpful tips and advice for planning a weekend honeymoon.

Who Goes on a Weekend Honeymoon?

Weekend honeymoons make great options for newlyweds with limited time off from work, on a budget, obligated to previous commitments, health reasons or lack of vacation time. Some couples plan for a shorter getaway immediately after the ceremony with the intent of a longer honeymoon at a later date.

Your Honeymoon Budget

Before booking your weekend honeymoon determine in advance how you can spend by creating a budget. Things to consider include hotel costs, airplane tickets, car rentals, gas, honeymoon wardrobe, day excursions, sundries and souvenirs. Estimate your meal costs for breakfast, lunch dinner, snacks and alcohol. Factor in extra for tips, taxes, transfers and emergencies.

Brainstorming Ideas for a Weekend Honeymoon

Meet with your fiancé and brainstorm ideas for your honeymoon that are within your budget. Decide on what is important to both of you such as luxury resort or bed and breakfast, exhilarating nightlife versus quiet solitude or adrenaline-stirring adventure versus pampering indulgences. Types of weekend honeymoons destinations may include beaches, mountains, cruises and cities and places of personal, cultural or historical significance. Whatever you choose make it your own and unforgettable.

Getting There                 

Time is of the essence when going on a weekend honeymoon. Create a travel plan for getting to your honeymoon destination. If driving, ensure your vehicle is in working order and the tank is full of gas, check weather conditions and review map directions before you hit the road. For flights, arrive early, double check departures times and make sure your carry-ons meet ever-changing airline requirements.

Making Your Reservations

Book your weekend honeymoon well in advance of your wedding. Weekends are popular and you want to ensure you get the honeymoon of your dreams. If possible, call the hotel directly to make reservations. Take the time to mention you will be on your honeymoon, many hotels and accommodations offer specials and upgrades for newlywed couples. Inquire about honeymoon suites or rooms with the best views or amenities. Always obtain the name of person who helps you should a discrepancy occur.
