Why You Should Trust Experts with Your Honeymoon

Trusting experts to plan your wedding is nothing new

We all know that it takes a professional to pull together your perfect day. What is new though, is trusting the professionals to organise your honeymoon, too. When you think about it, it makes total sense.

Your honeymoon is a once-in-a lifetime vacation. It’s a trip that needs to be extra special in every way, with minimal stress and maximum time to start your life as newlyweds. However, making this happen is no simple task. Especially when trying to do this alongside getting ready for your all important day – it’s unlikely you’ll have time to give your honeymoon the full attention it deserves.

Thankfully, experts like Origin are stepping in. Their end-to-end travel planning service and years of experience in luxury travel mean they’re perfectly equipped to create your dream honeymoon – totally stress free.

What’s the first step to deciding on a honeymoon destination?

It can be tricky to know where to start – and planning a honeymoon can feel pretty daunting. However, Origin is an end-to-end service. They can recommend destinations, itineraries and activities, while also sorting all the big things like flights, hotels and transport, through to the special touches like personal guides and even restaurant reservations. All you need to think about is what a dream honeymoon means to you.

With services like Origin, you don’t need to worry aout the details – that’s their job. You just

need to tell them how you want to feel at the end of your trip.

Dean, Origin senior travel curator, advises, “sit down with your partner and write a list of what you want from this honeymoon. How do you want to feel at the end of the trip?
Energized, relaxed, or a bit of both? Do you want to do something totally daring, like your first skydive together, or to reach a new level of relaxation in an exclusive resort? Do you want beach time, mountain views or the city lights? We can use your list to create a vacation that’s completely personalised to you both.”

What else do I need to consider?

It’s an obvious one, but dates are the big thing. Although it’s traditional to go right after the

wedding, don’t feel like you have to – focus on the dream and go from there. Origin can also

help advise on the best dates to make those dreams come true – Origin’s expert curators have a combined experience of more than 25 years, so they know when’s best to go where.

Dean says: “Your honeymoon should be something that’s just for you and your spouse. If the dream is to see the northern lights, then we’ll make it happen”.

How early should we start thinking about our honeymoon?

This really depends on what it is you want from your honeymoon. But Origin’s travel curators recommend getting in touch at least a year beforehand to make sure they have plenty of time to create the perfect honeymoon. This also means there’s plenty of availability at phenomenal luxury hotels and you won’t have to compromise on any reservations.

As Dean mentions, “we always make sure to check how involved people want to be with the organization. They can be as hands on or as hands off as they like , but the more time we have the better, and we’ll always run ideas and potential itineraries before travellers before booking anything.”

Where can we find honeymoon inspiration?

It can be easy to get swept up in the kind of honeymoon that everyone else has, or the kind

everyone thinks you should have, but the point of a honeymoon is that it’s completely personal to you and your partner. This means it’s great to check out inspiration and ask for

recommendations from friends, but just always make sure that it’s a vacation that keeps you and spouse at the heart of it.

You can use the Origin app to check out the kind of trips they’ve organized before, like a luxury safari on the Serengeti in Tanzania, island hopping across the Mediterranean or total luxury relaxation the The Maldives. You can also use the chat to speak directly with an expert human curator.

Dean says: "Your honeymoon should be the most unique trip of your life. Every trip we create is tailor made, and nothing is too much to ask. If you’ve got the ideas, we’ve got the expertise and experience to make it happen.
Your honeymoon deserves just as much attention as the big day, so calling in the experts means you can just let them know what you want, then leave them to it!"
