1) Pick a Destination - Open the lines of communication between partners talking about what each would ideally like to do and compromise making sure to include the top things on each spouse's list. A travel agent can help narrow down the best destination choices as well as activities to do in each area that will meet the desires of both partners.

2) Budgeting
- Set realistic expectations and stick to them. Setting a budget and being honest with yourself about your limitations is important to keeping this experience as stress-free as possible.

3) Hire a Professional - It is best to enlist the services of a professional travel agency with honeymoon or couples getaway specialists when planning a honeymoon. With billions of Web pages out there, having a trusted professional on your side is invaluable. What many travelers do not know, is that travel agencies do not charge a fee for their services.

4) Protect Yourself - Keep all important documents such as birth certificates, passports, and other forms of identification in a small bag to be used exclusively for this purpose. Other info that should be stored in the document bag is: data on travelers' checks including the numbers and amounts, as well as date and place of purchase; and phone numbers for your bank and credit cards in the unfortunate event your wallet or purse is lost or stolen.

5) Travel Money - The most carefree and economical way to convert currency abroad is to make purchases using a major credit card. suggests leaving store charge cards at home and limiting to a single credit card for all vacation purchases allowing the traveler to easily catch errors on the bill. Before departing for vacations abroad, travelers should check with their bank to see if their ATM card will work in the country they're planning to visit.

6) Preserving Memories - Take lots of pictures and consider using separate memory cards for digital cameras or rolls of film for each location. Keep a journal of your travels. It doesn't have to be long - a few sentences about each day's events or even a series of short blurbs about noteworthy things you've seen or done will keep those memories from fading.

7) Passports - Ask your travel agent if you will need a passport to travel to your honeymoon destination. If so, it's never too soon as it can take as long as 12 weeks. The bride's flight reservation should be made with her maiden name, so it will match all of her identification.

8) Plan Ahead - Buying tickets in advance to local attractions or tours often saves precious time. For things that weren't planned in advance, use the resort's concierge. Leaving things such as restaurant reservations to the concierge, frees up the honeymoon couple's time.

9) Rental Cars - When choosing a rental car, travel agents often advise couples to pick the smallest car that would meet their needs including things they will bring with them as well as purchases they will make while traveling.
