Are you getting married and currently planning your honeymoon? Congratulations! Even if you’re on a budget, there are still ways you can cut down on your honeymoon expenses and create wonderful memories to last a lifetime. The following are some tips for saving money on your honeymoon:
Create a honeymoon registry
More couples these days are opting for less-than-conventional wedding registries, and it’s now becoming more common to create registries that allow guests to contribute money towards a particular goal, such as a home purchase or honeymoon. With a honeymoon registry, your guests can contribute money towards your airfare and lodging, which can help make your honeymoon more affordable.
Although it may be ideal to leave for your honeymoon right after your wedding, it may not be the best time if you’d be visiting a particular destination during a holiday or its peak season. If you’ve got your heart set on the destination, but don’t want to pay top dollar, consider going in shoulder season or low season. Alternatively, if you’d rather go on your honeymoon right after your wedding, be flexible with your destination. Pick a place that you’d both enjoy, but isn’t in the middle of a costly high season.
Book close to home
International airfare can be the most expensive part of any trip, but who says you have to travel far to have an amazing honeymoon? You might have some of most sought after honeymoon destinations within a short driving distance. Do a little research and find out what’s within a few hundred miles of your city—you may find a luxurious resort that costs just a fraction of what an international honeymoon would cost.
Are you thinking about a tropical island in the Caribbean for your honeymoon? All-inclusive resorts are popular choices in this region, and not only do they cater to couples, but the all-inclusive structure helps to make the entire vacation more affordable.
