DIY Weddings:Planning your Honeymoon
Planning Your Honeymoon
As with any part of your wedding setting a budget is important and should be the first thing that you do. Knowing the money that you want to spend will will determine your direction as you research your honeymoon locations. It will determine the location, type, accomodations and length of stay.
It is important that both of you agree on the type of honeymoon that you want. Do you want to relax on a beach? Do you want to do a lot of outdoor activities? Do you want to take in the sites? These are decisions that you should make together. Not only will it make it easier to choose a destination, but you will enjoy your honeymoon together. You could look at destinations that offer the best of both worlds and you will both get the best of your honeymoon experience. Choosing an All-Inclusive package can help you save money in the long run as well as help you adequately save to pay for your trip.
When planning remember the time of year. Traveling off season can save you thousands of dollars. Do some research on your destination of choice, find out their low and high seasons. Consider booking your season a few weeks before or after high seasons. Consider staying close to home rather than a trip to Europe; you can probably save Europe for an anniversary. Planning ahead is always a great money saving tip, however if you are an impromptu type couple, sometimes you can save on last minute travel arrangements. Check out Lastminutetravel.com.
I went in to lastminutetravel.com and scheduled a trip for March 2010 and found a great deal for $672.00 per person in Montego Bay, Jamaica for four days. This was at the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort All Inclusive; this hotel offers 5 star, beachfront accommodations with beautiful views.
