For some people, planning a trip is (almost) as fun as actually going on one, while others would rather just get to the final destination without the hassle. If you and your fiancé happen to fall into the latter category, planning your honeymoon can seem like an unnecessary task to add to your already long wedding to-do list. To help you turn honeymoon planning from a chore into an adventure, here are four easy hacks.

Stick to Your Strengths
If you have thousands of Twitter followers and your guy crunches numbers for a living and often brags about his bargain-shopping skills, be sure to use your areas of expertise to your advantage. For example, use your social savvy to create a list of travel bloggers for inspiration and advice while your bargain-hunting S.O. checks your credit cards and company perks to see what travel discounts you can score.

Sample the Culture
Don't wait to arrive at your dream destination to give it a taste. Go to a restaurant or whip up a speciality from the region to really immerse yourself in the culture while you plan. Or turn to your Netflix account and cozy up together with a movie that shows off the location's scenery or culture instead.

Share Your Plans
Your honeymoon will be filled with Facebook-worthy moments, but the planning process is worth a post on your social network, too. Once you have selected your honeymoon spot, post a status. Not only will it feel great to share the excitement with your loved ones, you may even get some insider advice from others who have previously visited the area.

Schedule Surprises
While it is great to work side-by-side with your fiancé to plan your honeymoon, try to sneak a few surprises for him in there, too! Pricey or full-day activities are best to discuss as a duo, but adding a couple's massage into the mix or scheduling a special dinner unbeknownst to your new hubby is the perfect way to add a bit of excitement to your vacation.
