Not many people know it, but the Just Events! Group team not only plans weddings and corporate events, we assist clients with booking travel for vacations, conferences, and—you guessed it—honeymoons! In the 25 years we’ve been in business, we’ve learned a lot about the ins and outs of travel. Today we’re sharing some of our best tips on how to save money on your honeymoon.
Ready to start saving? Here are just a few quick tips to get you going:
– Set your budget early. Too often we find that couples don’t include their honeymoon expenses in their overall wedding budget. This is a big mistake! Your honeymoon should be a line item in your wedding budget right along with floral and photography. By budgeting for your honeymoon, you won’t find yourself scrounging for money when you’re ready to book it.
– Watch for sales. Many travel sites give you the option of setting up price or fare alerts. Decide on your destination, then set up alerts for your preferred flights, hotels, etc. When the rates fall within your budget, book it!
– Choose where to spend. If you’re foodies, your honeymoon might center on the dining experiences you’ll have. In that case, spend less on your accommodations and transportation. If you want a relaxing honeymoon without a lot of fuss, choose a spa-like environment for your stay and prepare your own food or eat off-site at less expensive places. Spend judiciously to get the most enjoyment out of your honeymoon without blowing the budget.
