Your wedding is over and now it is time to enjoy some well earned time with the love of your life! Weddings are a huge expense, so for many couples it’s really difficult to imagine jetting off to a luxurious honeymoon right after! We have come up with 5 great ways to save money while planning your honeymoon so you can have not only the wedding of your dreams but the honeymoon to go along with it!
1. Honeymoon Registry
This is perfect for those couples who have been living together for a while and don’t need a tradition registry full of things for your kitchen and living spaces! It is a way for your guests to pay for part (if not all) of your honeymoon! This way you won’t have to worry about returning that glass bowl from your second cousin that you will never use and you will have a good amount of money to put towards your honeymoon!
2. Honeymoon specials
Many resorts and hotels will have rates for newly-weds or package deals where you can save money! So make sure you tell them what the special occasion is because it may save you money in the end! Brag away, you deserve it!
3. Book on an off-season
If you plan your trip in the middle of summer you are going to soon realize that everything is more expensive! The best way to save money as well as have great weather is to plan your trip in-between the on and off season! Though you won’t get the amazing deals like you would by going in the off season you are more likely to get better weather!
4. Hire a Travel agent
Though hiring a travel agent may seem like the opposite thing to do when you are trying to save money, but they will actually save you more money in the long run! They have tons and tons of experience on planning trips and they will be in the know about all the amazing deals going on! Make sure you tell your travel agent exactly what you are looking for, but also where you are willing to compromise so they can find you the best deal!
Booking an all-inclusive resort is the best way to know exactly how much you are going to spent to ensure that you don’t go over your budget! Be sure to ask what exactly all-inclusive means at each resort you look at because you don’t want any surprises when you arrive!
