The Ultimate Honeymoon Planning Timeline

The days leading up to your wedding are consumed with thoughts of flowers, dresses, and desserts – leaving you no time for the plane tickets, passports and hotel reservations needed for the honeymoon. To ensure your first few days of your Happily Ever After are as exciting as your wedding, follow this honeymoon checklist and, as always, let your Romance Expert take care of all the planning to make it all happen.

No later than 9 months do you begin planning your honeymoon. Begin with talking to your fiance about a budget. Then put those Pinterest boards to good use and create your honeymoon wishlist. Share this list with your Romance Expert and they’ll do their best to make it happen for your dream honeymoon! Click below to begin planning with one of our Romance Experts!


At 6 months you should have your honeymoon deposited and have created your honeymoon registry. With LovinAway, you can reserve your honeymoon for as little as $50 down per person and the final payment would be due 45 days prior to departure. This gives you plenty of time to pay off your getaway and time for your friends and family to make payments towards your honeymoon registry!

This is when you and your fiance should discuss excursions and tours, if you haven’t already. Ask your Romance Expert for some insider tips of what to do in your destination! This is also the time when you should get excited about your upcoming honeymoon! Download a countdown app on your phone, stalk your resorts’ Facebook or Instagram page and see what’s going on in paradise!


A week before final payment on your honeymoon is due, your Romance Expert will apply all purchases from your honeymoon registry towards your honeymoon reservation. Once final payment is made, you will receive your travel documents in the mail from LovinAway and confirm that the names listed on your travel documents appears exactly as it does on your government issued ID. This is when you should book your excursions! Consider booking a surprise for your spouse, like a sunset dinner cruise!
