Expert advice on the most important trip of your life!
Honeymoon and Destination Wedding Travel
How far in advance should we plan our honeymoon or destination wedding?
I recommend planning a honeymoon at least six months in advance. This will give you the best airfare prices and availability at resorts. For destination weddings, try to secure a date at least nine months in advance. You’ll also be giving your guests ample time to make travel arrangements.
What is the average cost of a honeymoon?
You can get a luxury Caribbean honeymoon for about $5,000. I know, we’re not talking about chump change here – but remember this vacation will likely be the most important trip of your life. I’ll also set you up with a payment plan that will make your trip very affordable. Plus, deposits start as low as $50 per person.
What is the average cost of a destination wedding?
That depends on the type of wedding you’d like. If it’s just the two of you, there’s a good chance the resort will cover the entire cost of the wedding. But if you’d like the works – DJ, catering, dance floor etc. – the price goes up. But don’t worry: I’ll work with you to find a package that’s just right.
When should I leave for my honeymoon?
Consider leaving two days after your wedding instead of the day after. This will allow you to spend a little more time with your friends and family. Plus having an extra day to pack doesn’t hurt either.
There are so many choices for destinations and resorts – how do I choose?
Finding your perfect destination is no easy task. Here are some things to think about when planning your honeymoon or destination wedding.
What kind of experience do you want on your trip?
Adventure: Do you dream of climbing mountains and going white water rafting on your honeymoon? If so, check out destinations like Hawaii or Costa Rica
Luxury: Do you want the best of the best for your honeymoon? I don’t blame you. But everyone’s definition of luxury is different. Make sure your budget can accommodate your plans.
Romance: Do you want to enjoy plenty of candlelight dinners? How about quiet beaches perfect for evening strolls? Then consider a resort that’s all about romance. A couples-only hotel, or even a personal butler, will also provide the ambience you seek.
Culture: Are you a history buff or culture connoisseur? Maybe Europe is the perfect destination for you. Try a cooking class in Italy, visit the Parthenon in Greece or explore the French Alps.
What is the process for working with you as our travel agent?
You’ll get a questionnaire that will help me get a better sense of what you’re looking for. After reviewing this information, I’ll put together a presentation highlighting several options for your honeymoon or destination wedding.
Once you’ve mulled things over, I’ll use your feedback to narrow down the choices and help you make a decision. After selecting your perfect trip package, you’ll be asked to supply a super-low deposit. The final payment is typically due 45 days before travel, but there are plenty of flexible payment plans available. I’ll walk you through them all.
Before your travel date, you’ll get all the documents you need plus other useful information for your trip. I’ll take care of every detail of your honeymoon or destination wedding before you go.
