Your honeymoon is a wonderful time, one that allows you to relax after the craziness of your wedding and celebrate your new life as husband and wife. If you are starting to plan your honeymoon and want to keep it budget-friendly, use the following tips to ensure a fun-yet-fiscally-responsible good time.
Decide On Your Honeymoon “Type”
Sit down with your partner to decide what type of honeymoon you want. Does a few days on a tropical island sound amazing? How about skiing in Vermont or Colorado? Are you craving a European vacation, or want to keep the ‘moon within the continental U.S.? A staycation is also a perfectly acceptable and budget-friendly honeymoon option. Pick a favorite destination while also keeping a backup plan in mind. Research both options to determine if you can do what you want without overspending.
Create A Honeymoon Registry
Consider creating a honeymoon registry if you already have plenty of household goods and would rather put the money towards your trip. Plenty of couples do this, and it’s a great way to save money on your dream honeymoon.
Become A Master At Finding Deals
Set up alerts on your phone concerning flight and airline deals, research bundle or all-inclusive options, and use sites such as Air BnB, Groupon, and Local Flavor to save serious money.
Book your honeymoon as early as possible to save moo-lah on flights, hotels, etc. Decide whether to book the trip on a credit card to earn airline miles or cash back. Booking early on a credit card also allows you to pay on the trip for the next few months. You will probably have the trip paid for by the time you get on that plane or train!
Keep these tips in mind to plan your dream honeymoon. Good luck!
