4 Tips for Planning Your Winter Honeymoon

Posted by lfrazier on Oct 22, 2012


While the summer months always get the attention for their famed weddings, there’s just something spectacular about the winter season. Weddings staged during this time of year can be just as spectacular – and often times even more so. As beautiful as winter ceremonies can be, it’s the honeymoons that can really shine.

If you’re exploring the possibilities that winter honeymoons deliver, here are four tips you need to consider:

  • Consider the weather that appeals very carefully –Winter honeymoons can present with a world of options when it comes to weather. If you love the idea of skiing the slopes by day and snuggling up by a warm fire in the evenings, winter is the perfect time of year for many American and European destinations. Should you cherish the idea of warming up on the beach by day and relaxing in a pool at night, there are plenty of locales that can make that dream come true as well.
  • Stake out your country of choice early – Planning a winter honeymoon is a whole lot like scheduling a getaway any other time of year. Deciding on the country you want to vacation in, however, is always an important consideration. If you want balmy weather in January, most American destinations might be off limits (with a few exceptions). With this in mind, you’ll want to make this determination early to ensure you have a passport lined up should out-of-country travel be on your agenda.
  • Budget and book early – Many of the world’s best loved and most visited honeymoon destinations are hot commodities when the temperatures dip. Warmer locations, for example, are loved by tourists all over the world as snow begins to fall. Ski resorts, of course, start booking overtime when the slopes are just right. With this in mind, it’s important for you and your sweetie to budget for and book your winter honeymoon as early as possible. This will help you be certain accommodations in your dream destination are reserved without question.
  • Work with a planner – No matter when and where you want to go on your honeymoon, it’s always a good idea to work directly with a travel advisor. An expert in this field can help you pick the perfect location for wintertime romance.

Winter weddings are stunning, but the honeymoons are often even more spectacular. Start planning early to make sure you have the trip of your dreams. And don’t forget to consult an expert to make booking your getaway even easier.
