Book Early, Pay Less and Avoid the Stress!
There are ways to plan your honeymoon while watching your budget. Plan ahead and keep your sight set on realistic destinations that you can afford.
Tips for getting what you want out of a honeymoon while staying within your budget:
Set the dollar amount that you can afford to spend. Decide if there are things you can do without on your honeymoon such as massages, fancy digs in a hotel, etc.
Instead of a Gift Registry, have a Honeymoon Registry
Contact your local travel agency and find out if they have a registry service. Oftentimes they will. Or you can choose an online honeymoon registry service and find your choice of a honeymoon that will offer your guests the option of putting money towards a honeymoon or activities on your honeymoon.
Recruit the Help of a Travel Agent
Travel agents have the resources to find travel packages that will fit almost any budget. Having years of travel expertise under the belt, they know when, where and how to find the perfect honeymoon for you that will fit your budget.
Be Flexible with Date
You can save a lot of money if you plan your honeymoon during the off-season for many destinations. Being flexible saves money and allows you to have the honeymoon of your dreams.
Postponing your honeymoon or planning your wedding around the off-season will have significant savings.

Book Your Honeymoon in Advance

Mileage is Money
If you use credit cards for various purchases, check to see if they have mileage or rewards for travel. Many people are not aware they have this option. You can cash in those rewards for flights, hotels, car rentals and a whole lot more!
