Weddings and honeymoons can be very costly, especially if you are paying for everything yourself. Here are some ways that you can save some money on your honeymoon. Just because the wedding is in June does not mean that you have to honeymoon in June also. Think about taking your honeymoon in the off-season. Also, different honeymoon destinations have different off-seasons. So you will need to do some research on this depending on where yo wish to travel to.
Save Money On Your Honeymoon
Another way to save money on the honeymoon is to sign up for a honeymoon registry. This works particularly well if you are a couple that has most everything for your house. Instead of registering for that toaster or coffee pot, register for a honeymoon. Cruises are a great honeymoon destination with this option. Go to your local travel agency and they can help you set this up. This way, instead of your guests purchasing a wedding gift, they can put money towards your honeymoon.
Cruises are a great money saving idea even if you do not want to put the expense on a honeymoon registry. Cruises are all inclusive vacations that can be very affordable. Your room, food and destination are all included in the fee. There are some extra charges you may occur but you have control of what you want to spend. Usually any type of excursion is an additional charge. Therefore, choose those carefully. Also, any type of liquor, beer, or soda is an additional charge. Water, tea and coffee are typically included. There are other all inclusive destinations which follow many of the same rules. It doesn’t have to be a cruise if that is not your cup of tea. An example would be Sandals resorts.
Booking early can save you tons of money. Most airlines and hotels offer better rates if you book early versus waiting until the last minute. At the very least, this guarantees that all of the inexpensive rooms will not be sold out.
You know all your airline miles/points that are just sitting on your credit card waiting to be used? What better time than this to use them up. Don’t forget that in some cases those credits can be used for more than just airfare. Sometimes they can also be used for hotel or other forms of transportation.
Honeymoons do not need to be exotic destinations. Check into your own neighborhoods and see what kind of deals you can get at home. No matter what you decide on for your honeymoon destination, the best way to make sure it is affordable is to budget, budget, and budget. Do you really need those monogrammed napkins at your reception? The ones that everyone is going to wipe their face on and throw away.
