The most important choices have been made—you have, after all, each found the love of your life! But you still need to take care of a few loose ends before you get to relax after the wedding and enjoy your perfectly romantic honeymoon. If you have yet to choose your destination, there's still time, but the sooner you make a decision the better! Assuming you have, here are a few do-ahead tips to make sure everything about your trip goes smoothly:
∑ If you haven't done so already, now is the time to contact a honeymoon travel specialist. She or he will book your airline travel, make reservations at your resort, book your hotel suite or the stateroom for your cruise.
∑ Traveling to a foreign port? Ask your travel agent if any immunizations are required and see about getting them in a timely manner.
∑ Book rental cars, if you'll need them. You just might want to leave even the most glorious rooms at some point! Also, the reserved rental car can be waiting for you at the airport when you arrive.
∑ Just to be on the safe side, consider purchasing some travel insurance.
∑ Find out about local restaurants and happenings at your honeymoon destination and make reservations in advance. And be sure to add those items to your honeymoon registry.
∑ Consider arranging for a reputable house sitter if you're planning a long honeymoon trip (lucky you!).
