Some destinations can only be reached on certain days due to airline schedules, so you may need to be flexible – especially if you want to travel the day after your wedding. Look for places where the days of departure to fit into your schedule.

Use the Right Name

If you’re going to change your passport into your married name, make sure all documents and booking details are in the same name, or you could be refused entry into the country. Also allow plenty of time to send off all the documents – and for them to be returned.

Buy Travel Insurance

This is a must when traveling overseas as it covers you if you’re ill or there’s an accident. Make sure your policy also covers the value of your engagement and wedding rings if you take them with you.
