This guide can help get you started on what you need to know about setting up the dream honeymoon vacation. Here are just a few things to look out for after you’ve walked down the aisle!
Make all your reservations ahead of time
The sooner you can make this basic reservations, the better off you will be. You may want to think about booking your flight and hotel room before you even start making plans for your wedding. This will help make sure that you have everything taken care of when you focus your attention on the wedding details. You can also find much better deals when you are able to plan this far in advance. Some hotels offer great deals to guests who can book rooms during the off season. You may even be able to get cut rate deals on your flight tickets as well.
Consider all of your options
When you are scoping out all of the vacation rentals Maui has to offer, feel free to keep your mind open. Most people will naturally tend to gravitate towards beach areas. The only downside is that you will find these options to be much more expensive than usual. Some people may want to think about moving inland a little. This will be an unorthodox way to experience Maui, but it is becoming increasingly popular over time. The area inland will be more densely packed with trees, so it could be the perfect option for green minded couples. You can still drive from your hotel to the beach in only a matter of minutes. The entire island of Maui is not exceptionally big, so you will never be too far off from the sun and the sand at any point!
Take advantage of your newlywed status
People all over the world will want to know that you have been recently married. Many people will naturally want to help you celebrate one of the happiest times in your lives. Some hoteliers may be willing to provide you with some discounts or possibly even upgrade your room. They may also want to tell you about great local restaurants that will cater to newlyweds. There may even be other newlyweds who could share the experience with you.

You’ll have enough stress leading up to your wedding day – the relaxation part (your honeymoon) shouldn’t be one of those stressors. Follow through with the advice above and make your honeymoon vacation in Maui the second best part of your experience (the first being “I do!”).
