Hi, loves! This post is an important one: pin it, tweet it, facebook it (however you’d like to share it) because you’ll want it for later! Today we’re sharing part one (of four) on How to Plan a Honeymoon. In this post, we’ll cover what you need to do to plan a honeymoon eight months to one year before your trip. (Did you know you needed to start planning that early? It was news to me when I planned my honeymoon, too.) We’ll be doing one post a week, so by the end of July you’ll be on your way to planning the perfect honeymoon vacation. Now, some of these may seem obvious, but it helps to have them all in one (easy-to-reference) place. Let’s get started, shall we? Oh, and I wanted to mention that there is an awesome giveaway happening inside this post by ArenLace… so don’t miss it!

While planning your wedding, you may have noticed how many vendors require an appointment before your consultation. Many bridal gown shops, for instance, require an appointment before they’ll allow you to browse their wedding dress collection. An appointment is also required before you can meet with wedding venues, florists, photographers, disc jockeys, and hair or makeup artists, just to name a few. Booking wedding appointments requires time and energy, both of which you’ll need more of during the planning process. But now there’s a way you can save time booking wedding appointments (and make your life easier). Read on to find out more about Voncierge, a startup proving that appointments can be easier to make – and keep – than ever before…
