  • Plan in advance: Wedding planning is stressful enough – you don’t want to wait until the last minute to start planning the honeymoon. Start planning early so you have one less thing on your to-do list and you can unwind after the wedding as you get ready to embark on your honeymoon. Travel experts suggest planning the honeymoon at least 6 to 9 months before the wedding date so you have first pick of flights and resort accommodations.

Think about the type of activities you want to enjoy during your honeymoon in Mexico and create an itinerary that will suit both you and your new spouse. If you’re having trouble finding things to do, consider using the concierge services at the resort to help you plan your daily activities.
  • Create balance: An ideal honeymoon features balance between activities and relaxation. Spend each day doing something energetic or fun, followed by a relaxing massage or lounging by the pool. This will keep the entire honeymoon romantic and memorable — and give you plenty of opportunities to take pictures.
  • Pack your bags: Don’t wait until a day or two before you leave for your honeymoon to start packing — you need to spend all of your extra time making sure the wedding planning is complete and ready to go. Pack a variety of garments in your bag to accommodate any type of weather you might encounter, and don’t forget swimsuits, cover-ups and tennis shoes for those daily activities.
