What is the "Ideal Honeymoon?"

So you are planning your honeymoon -- Congratulations! The honeymoon is an
important part of the wedding experience. A much-needed break after months of
exciting and often exhausting wedding planning!

Most people grow up with a preconceived notion of what an ideal honeymoon
should involve. However, a bride's idea of tropical paradise and a groom's idea
of a ski resort might have some areas of conflict.

Paradise Comes in Many Forms: Different Types of Honeymoons

When it comes to honeymoon planning, most couples try to select the destination
first, while travel agents often suggest a more productive way to begin. Unless
your dream destination has already been set in stone, first decide what type of
vacation you want. Then you can narrow down your list of destinations

Resorts are very popular honeymoon destinations. They transport you into
another world, for a wonderful escape from the daily grind of everyday life.
They are often set in the most picturesque and beautiful places in the world,
including pools, private beaches and golf courses. There are wonderful
restaurants and relaxing spas for you both to experience.

All-inclusive resorts streamline the enjoyment process by including everything.
Your room, transfers, recreational facilities, meals and drinks are included in
the one price. Without the worries of wondering how much everything little
thing will cost, you are free to live the high life experiencing everything you
want as often as you want it.

If an all-inclusive resort sounds tempting but too stationary, consider taking
a cruise. Cruises are often floating resorts, which take you away to one exotic
port after another. Whether you want a cultural cruise to the Caribbean region,
or a wildlife adventure up the Alaskan coast, your travel agent will match you
and your partner to the perfect honeymoon experience!

Plan your honeymoon together

This is the trip you want to be "just right"! This is the holiday of your life
as you start out being husband and wife.

Whether the two of you have differing views of your dream honeymoon, or share a
vision of the perfect romantic getaway, you've got many choices. Depending on
your budget and time constraints, you've got a whole world of choices ahead of
you. It's time to start making those decisions!

Communication and compromise are needed with the goal to make your honeymoon
romantic, memorable and stress-free. Here are some questions to consider as
soon as talk of your honeymoon begins.

What is most important?

Suntan lotion, sand and surf, or the privacy and seclusion a mountain retreat?

Are you looking to experience new cultures in distant lands, or do you just
want to get away from it all?

Would you prefer to travel in your local area? Or would you prefer to travel to
an international location?

Do you want to spend more on the wedding or the honeymoon? Stay in a resort or
a do-it-yourself location?

No trip can ever be one hundred percent perfect! Unexpected discoveries and
last-minute plan changes can be part of the fun of travel. However, some
surprises are definitely best avoided. Such as the hotel room, that echoes with
the sound of the disco next door. The Bed and Breakfast with a shared bath and
you need to use it at the same time. Or even, that gorgeous ocean liner that
has everything, you discover has twin beds.

Please remember to focus on each other during your honeymoon. You can always
opt for a honeymoon that's close to home. Book an intimate inn or quaint Bed
and Breakfast. You can spend more time at the destination and less time
traveling. Leaving more time for each other!

Plan your honeymoon wisely

With so many different places to visit and see, the world and what it has to
offer, why not plan an unforgettable trip? To a destination you may other wise
never get to see or experience when planning your honeymoon.

There are so many beautiful parts to this world of ours. Far too many to list,
they say two heads are better then one, so if you both add your idea's you are
bound to come up with something or somewhere exciting to see and do on your

Australia is a wonderful travel destination! With so much to do and see! From
the vast outback, to the beaches and in between, make the most of your
honeymoon. After all, most of us only get to experience one honeymoon in our
life time. But then there is no reason why you can not take more than one
honeymoon in your married life. Some call it a second honeymoon.

A holiday is almost as good as any honeymoon. It is what you make of the trips
unique experiences. How you go about it life's little adventures. Whether
you're into the 'norm' or out their on your own on destinations, make the most
of your honeymoon.

Travel agencies can help you in planning your honeymoon. If you get in early
enough and find what you are looking for, then you can save for that special
event experience together.

Do not waste a minute! Time is so important. Not just on planning your
honeymoon. You don't want to miss out, especially if you decide on popular
areas. There are off-peak and peak times. Each is different with the amount of
people visiting.

Welcome to the world of married folks! May your life together be prosperous,
loving and a life time of wealth. Congratulations on choosing to share your
life together.

Make your honeymoon time count!

What a wonderful service your wedding was, and congratulations on your coming
together as husband and wife.

Now that all that is out of the way, you have the time to save for your

Where you would like to take it is totally up to you. Beyond the wide blue
yonder is a wealth of adventure just waiting for you to discover.

Life throws many challenges our way, and it is up to us as individuals, how we
cope with our day to day life on this earth. Making the most of any situation
that comes our way.

So to end your special wedding service, cap it off with the best honeymoon your
money can buy.

That does not have to mean that you put yourself into debt, ending your special
day with stress and worries you can well do without.

We all have our own expectations. It is compromising and knowing how far to go
to get what we want that is the important thing when it comes to arranging your

So start early with the preparations! Check out travel brochures and videos
that most good travel agents have. Search magazines as sometimes ads are placed
in them. Also ask your friends and family to help out too.

Instead of presents ask to be given money. It will come in handy towards your
honeymoon. Honeymoon Registries are often available from Travel Agents. How can
you go wrong with money? We all need it, we can all do with it and it is
surprising what we can benefit from it.

So what ever you plan to do on you're honeymoon, make the most of your current
situation. Arrange to your own ability, and more importantly enjoy you're time
spent together. After all you only get the one honeymoon!

Make your honeymoon unique!

So your big day is not far off now and you are still behind on where to go
for your honeymoon. Have you called in to visit your local travel agent? They
have many unique and exciting destinations to suit anyone and any budget.

If traveling abroad does not take your fancy, what about looking in your own
back yard or so too speak. A honeymoon does not have to be fancy, or have a
fortune spent on it. Often after the wedding, there is not much left over to
spend on an expensive honeymoon.

You can even take it at a later date. There is no written word that says now
that you're married, you must take your honeymoon here and now. You could spend
it doing what ever you're heart desires as it only counts for you and your other
half. It all comes down to where you want to be, or how you want to spend you're

You may be happy to break your honeymoon into three or four weekends throughout
a year. Or, perhaps, you will wait until your first anniversary and then take
that much needed late honeymoon.

So instead of listening to you're friends rave on about how much theirs cost,
and set them back, take a leaf out of your own book, doing what you and you're
future partner want to do. If finances are a little tight, enjoy your honeymoon
at time where you both can afford it. You do not have to put yourselves into
debt, when you are just starting out on a new adventure of a life time together.

Your honeymoon should be stress free. A lovely setting for two! Just you and
that one person that makes your heart swell every time they walk into the room.
Whatever you do, choose enjoy your honeymoon and you r precious time together.

Make your memories count

Honeymoons are a time to remember! Memories are created that last a lifetime
and can be cherished by the entire family. Listen to older people, such as the
grandparents and see what they have to say on their honeymoon. Some of the
stories are quite exciting and humorous.

Your honeymoon will be unique no matter where you both go. Only the two of you
will be actively participating unless you have children. Taking children on
your honeymoon, does sound a bit unusual and is actually quite common.

Blended families often use this time to get together and help create new bonds
between the members of the family. This is a time of celebration, where the
parents coming together have formed a new extended family. The children now
have step brothers or sisters to play with plus a new step mom or step dad.
Along with the extended family come other family members, grandparents, uncles,
aunts and cousins.

A lot of families will go to resorts that cater for families with activities
and accommodation to suit everyone. There is everything from bed and
breakfasts, farm stays, caravan park resorts to the up market resorts. Anything
is possible; it depends on the financial planning for how long you will be able
to get away.

Here in Australia families often go camping in the warmer months. There are
some spectacular National Parks and places to visit that do not cost much and
make the honeymoon more enjoyable for everyone.

Remember to pack your clothes, plus the tent and the cooking accessories
(unless you will be eating takeaway), the first aid kit and the sleeping bags.
Please be careful and respect the creatures of the outdoor regions. Some bite
and are not as nice as they look. Take the insect repellant as this is very
important -- mosquitoes bite and can make you sick plus very itchy!

Above all enjoy your family honeymoon and make it a time for everyone to

Questions you can ask

Honeymoons are supposed to be the most magical and memorable times in your
life, other than your wedding day. Now is the time to relax, unwind and enjoy
each others company. No matter where you both choose to go for this period, you
will have many memories to remember and cherish.

Everyone has a unique style they prefer for their honeymoon. Some couples
prefer the adventures of another country. During the planning, it is wise to
have a budget. This way a savings plan can help make your time away more
enjoyable. When you come home, there will be less debt to pay if you had to
borrow money for your wedding or honeymoon.

You hear of the all-inclusive resort where the one price caters for everything.
Many couples seem to prefer the convenience of an all-inclusive resort; one
package price pays for items usually ranging from tips and transfers to drinks,
meals, and activities. All-inclusives are a great option for honeymooners lucky
enough to be receiving the trip as a gift. For other couples, though,
all-inclusives are not such a good option because they are aimed at travelers
who plan to spend most of their time on the resort property and take most of
their meals right at the resort.

If you are considering staying at an all inclusive resort here are some points
to consider.

* What is your tipping policy? Some all-inclusives prohibit tipping; check with

* Are airport transfers included? Airport transfers can be a pricey item in some
  destinations; know if you should expect to be picked up at the airport.

* Is wine served with dinner?

* How many restaurants are on site?

* What cuisines do they serve?

* Is there waiting service or are all meals served buffet style?

* Is room service available?

* What sports are included?

Some ideas to consider for your honeymoon

Your "honeymoon" -- the very word rings with the promise of romance and passion.
Although the two of you may have taken many trips together, throughout your
relationship, no other journey will quite be the same. This is your first trip
and vacation as husband and wife. This is the trip you want to be "just right"!
The best hotel room for your special time alone! Trouble-free transportation,
things to do and romance. Romantic surroundings and time to spend together for
those cherished memories.

No trip can ever be 100% perfect! There will always be unexpected discoveries
with last-minute plan changes being part of the fun of travel. However, there
are some surprises that can be done without -- the hotel room that shakes from
the sound of the disco next door. The Bed and Breakfast with a shared bath and
you discover that you both want to use it at the same time! The wonderful
cruise that looked perfect. Fine dining and extreme romance until you get to
the cabin to discover twin beds. These types of mishaps are best avoided!

There are many thousands if ideas and options when it comes to planning your
honeymoon. Take the time to do you research thoroughly. Ask your friends and
colleagues what they think of a certain destination. Get a travel consultant to
help you or read on forums in the internet on places that interest you. Make
sure you plan something that suits you -- not just because it is the best deal
your money can buy. This is a special time in your life which will never be

So much time and effort has gone into your wedding. Even if you had a quick
wedding in an outdoor setting, you eloped or had a church setting. You both
deserve to be treated special as this time together is the beginning of the
rest of your life as husband and wife.

Savings Tips for Your Honeymoon

Are you worried about how much your honeymoon will cost? Take it one day at a
time like any other project. Here are some ideas to consider that may help you
save money for your special time.

Decide how much you can afford to spend on your honeymoon.

Setting up a budget is not as hard as it sounds. Once you know the overall cost
of the big day and your honeymoon, including travel, it is possible to get a
good head start on savings. Once you know the full amount of money needed to
cover total costs, see how many months are left to go before your wedding.
Divide the amount needed by the number of months left, as this will give you a
number to aim at saving every month.

Whenever possible in international destinations always use credit cards. Credit
card companies shop for the best currency exchange rates and can save you money.

Let the accommodation people know you are on holiday. Often they may throw in a
complimentary bottle of champagne or a basket of fruit.

Don't forget hidden costs like airport taxes, tips, taxi rides, and departure

Shop around for currency exchange rates in foreign countries. Hotels often
offer poor exchange rates. Also, check into the exchange fees. Get enough money
to last several days.

Visit a local market and pick up food for a picnic lunch. The meal is good and
the cost easy on the budget. Look for specials of the day in different places
to save money as well. Consider eating at local eateries away from the main
tourist scene.

Budget your meal money. Consider splurging on one extravagant meal, then
cutting costs for other meals.

Don't forget that the best things in life are free! Like a walk and a kiss on a
moonlit beach.

Love, romance and those lingering looks.

Love, romance and lingering looks! That sudden knowledge, that the one person
who has been under our noses all these years, and at some point in time, has
also been a thorn in our sides. Somehow they have managed to be there for us,
in one way or another. Continuing to be there to this very day, is that one
person, if taken from us we would miss whole heartily.

It is the one person who makes your heart flutter when he or she enters a room.
That is like being hit by a bolt of lightening, the thought comes too you that
this person and you were meant to be. Be as one, a pair, one of two halves.
Life would seem so endless if you were not together to share life's experiences
good and bad.

It has taken you both so long to finely find each other. Even though you both
have been right there, under each others noses, and in each others lives. You
have set the date for you're big day, the plans are in the making, and all
seems to be going well... have you missed something?

So what about the honeymoon?

Ok so you think you have twelve months to decide and settle on a destination.
Maybe so, plans have to be made for your honeymoon as well, and what better
time then the present to sit down together and make those plans.

Do not forget to consider that just because your plans have been made, does not
mean that everything will always run smoothly. Disruptions happen all the time
to all of us.

In some cases plans will have to be changed due to one thing or another. So is
often a good idea to always have a back up plan in place just in case the first
one does not work out.

The All-Inclusive Honeymoon

Whatever you are looking for in the way of accommodations from high-rise hotel,
o bed-and-breakfast or private villas, you will find exciting honeymoon
accommodations. Prices vary as much as the unique accommodations available to
you. Everything from budget motel to the most luxurious settings is possible.

Unlike a property on a traditional vacation or a business trip, your honeymoon
accommodations become a home away from home.

For many people, all-inclusive resorts are a blessing come true. Gradually
becoming more popular throughout the world, the "one price pays all" policy
makes the all inclusive trip a bonus. No matter who is buying the honeymoon,
the price includes such things as transfers, meals, drinks, water-sports and
more activities.

This means that you're free to try anything you like without blowing your
future vacation budget. Ever been curious about windsurfing? Take a lesson.
You're free to try it all. An all-inclusive is just right for you.

Perhaps the two of you want to try it all: scuba diving, sailing, windsurfing,
golf, or tennis. An all-inclusive is just the ticket for you as well. The
one-price-pays-all policy will be a better deal than paying for individual

You'll know how much to put aside for the entire vacation before you ever buy
your ticket. Once you arrive, feel free to live like a king and never have to
count how much money's left or how high the tally's going on your credit card.

If the two of you are using your honeymoon to blend a new family, you'll find
that you can still have a romantic trip with kids along thanks to all-inclusive
resorts with children's programs. The kids will have fun doing age-appropriate
activities, making new friends, and learning about a new culture, while the two
of you enjoy the start of your life together.

Treasure your time together.

Congratulations! Now you are getting married and are about to embark on your
honeymoon! What do you do and where can we go?

If the idea of lying on a beach sounds about as exciting as a nap shift into
another mode of thought and take an adventure vacation. This is especially
useful if you and your fianc share a kindred spirit for outdoor exploration.
Whether it's white-water rafting in Australia, hiking through Tibet or taking
an African safari, sharing the experience will become a vital bond between you

Historical and cultural trips are fascinating and romantic ways to reconnect
with the past. Visit a famous European city such as Paris, London, Rome or
somewhere else you would live to visit. Experience the culture! Soak in the
sights and experience their way of life. Discover the fascinating history of
the old world country from which your family originated. The unique perspective
you will gain can become a focus point for your family tree.

An excellent travel agent can save you money and time -- two important facts
for a couple planning a wedding and a honeymoon simultaneously. Through
experience and valuable resources, travel agents specialize in providing
personalized suggestions to suit your interests and your budget. And visiting
their office for a chat is absolutely free!

Would you try and bake your wedding cake yourself or ask a professional for
help? For stress-free travel plans -- especially those with multiple steps like
a honeymoon -- seek out the expert advice of a travel agent.

Make time for yourselves. Pad your honeymoon schedule with generous amounts of
free time. Plan a few enjoyable activities and leave lots of opportunities to
just relax and enjoy each other's company.

No matter what you decide to do, make sure this honeymoon is something both of
you can treasure for years to come!

How will you spend your honeymoon?

It's time to plan your honeymoon. So where to go and what to do for your
special time?

what you have in mind to where or how you spend your honeymoon. The list is
endless so choose wisely and enjoy your time together!

A nice quiet motel or cabin out in the wilderness, watching the moon shimmer

and a glass or two of champagne.

together. After all it is what you have both planned and saved for, so kick

How about a second honeymoon?

Have you ever thought about exchanging your vows for a second time? You have a
ceremony and a new honeymoon to plan. This time round you can have a different
theme, look and honeymoon. What you do is entirely up to your selves and can be
exciting in all the stages of planning.

The first wedding saw you both making plans together, each choosing something
different to experience, on you're special coming together as husband and wife.
You will both take every step of you're life together, from this day on; the
memories of you're honeymoon and the adventures you both contributed together.

How special these memories are as no one can erase them and the wonderful
pictures you captured on film to show both families will be a reminder for many
years to come.

So now that you have aged just a little, and the grandkids are planning their
very own special honeymoon, you still have your memories to share and
photographs to complement them. Is it any wonder that you're family want to
hear all about it yet again?

With the wedding vows in place a second time round and you're family wishing
you the best, as you head out on yet another adventure, to recapture the thrill
and excitement of yester year, do not forget that things change. With your
little patch of paradise, is it the same? Or is it like everything else, or yet
again entirely different?

Take your time the second time around. Please don't forget to try and capture
your memories on film. Take as many pictures as you want, and most of all enjoy
and fill your second honeymoon with as much or as little as you choose.

After all it is not everyday that we can recapture and spend what had once been
the beginning of our wonderful life together.

Seeking a Bed and Breakfast?

Honeymoons are magical and special moments in your new life as man and wide! If
you are seeking peace and quiet, then why not consider staying at a bed and
breakfast? These are often secluded and quiet places where the two of you can
relax and enjoy each others company to the fullest.

A bed and breakfast inn can make the two of you feel special and before you go
and book, why not ask some questions.

Do they have a honeymoon package?

What features can they offer to make your honeymoon better than someone else?
What facilities can they offer -- horse riding, bike riding?

Do the innkeepers reside in the house?

Some Bed and Breakfasts operate as guesthouses; while management might be on
property during the day, at night it's just guests on the grounds. At other
properties, you'll find the owner or manager living right in the house. The
atmosphere in these two situations is usually very different. An on-site
manager and owner usually make the property far more like home, enabling the
guests to interact more.

Are the innkeepers professional innkeepers or is the property managed by the

The term "B&B" can mean many things: a home with extra bedrooms rented to
guests, a small inn, a property with multiple guest rooms and professional
hosts. You will find that the atmosphere is very different from property to
property. You will also hear the term "country inn" or "small inn" used
frequently; this often means a Bed and Breakfast that has a small restaurant on

Here are some more questions to consider asking before you decide which Bed and
Breakfast to stay at for your honeymoon.

* Do all rooms have private baths?

* Is smoking allowed indoors? Many Bed and Breakfasts are non-smoking; if this 
  is a concern, ask. You'll find some Bed and Bs that prohibit smoking outdoors 
  while on property as well.

* Do you have private two-person tables if we want breakfast alone?

* How many guest rooms does the property have?

* Is breakfast served at one time or as guests arrive? At some Bed and
  Breakfasts, breakfast is served at a set hour. If you sleep late, you may 
  lose when it comes to the morning meal at some properties. If the two of you 
  plan to sleep in (or if you're early birds), check on this policy.

* Do you really want to start your morning with a family-sized table of fellow
  travelers? Sometimes this can be a fun situation plus a great way to get to 
  hear the impressions of your fellow travelers about a destination. At other 
  times, "you want to be alone."

* What amenities does the Bed and Breakfast offer?

* Do they accept credit cards? If so, do they accept your type of account?

* What is the deposit for a room?

* Is there a non-refundable deposit? If so, how much is non-refundable?

* Is there a minimum stay? Is there a minimum stay for Friday or Saturday 

* Do you have a honeymoon suite? Is it any extra and if so how much?

* Are there any pets in the house? If either of you suffers from allergies, 
  this can be an important consideration.

* Are children permitted? If you have children then this is important as some 
  Bed and Breakfasts only cater for couples.

* What is your cancellation policy?

* What is your most private room?

* Is liquor permitted on site? Remember, some Bed and Breakfasts are private 
  homes so some do not permit liquor on the property.

* Is our room air conditioned? If not, then so you have ceiling fans?

* Does our room have a private entrance?

* What type of car parking is available -- undercover or in the open?

A Honeymoon Registry -- what is it?

What is a Honeymoon Registry? Going through the internet and looking up ideas,
I came across this intriguing concept. There are more couples getting married
after they have lived on their own and are established in apartments or homes.

They are often well set up and have many of the traditional wedding gifts such
as pots, cutlery, pans, toasters and dishes. Thus the nature of bridal registry
has been changing. One offspring solution to this problem is a "Honeymoon

A Honeymoon Registry Services offers a solution for these couples, their
friends and family, who still want to buy them meaningful wedding gifts. This
is done through a three-step process whereby it is possible to buy parts of the
honeymoon as wedding gifts.

First, make contact with your travel agent for assistance in planning your
honeymoon. Your travel agent can then suggest different honeymoon destinations
and put together packages tailored to your interests.

Step two -- your travel agent will then put you in touch with a honeymoon
registry service, to finalize your chosen honeymoon activities. Then they set
up a registry so that wedding guests can help pay for your dream honeymoon. The
honeymoon registry service should be able to make suggestions on possible
honeymoon activities.

Step three -- after a couples' honeymoon has been planned, the honeymoon
registry service can take those plans and put them into a registry list.
Instead of the list containing household items, it contains pieces of a
couples' honeymoon.

Friends and family can help the couple pay for airfare and resort
accommodations, and buy romantic gifts, such as a candlelit dinner. The items
on honeymoon registry lists can include activities or "extras" that the couple
would like to do on their honeymoon.

Honeymoon registries are a new way of helping the couple, begin their life
together. Dishes, toasters and china may break or get old, but a honeymoon gift
will always be a memory of a special time in their lives.

Honeymoon escapes -- how long to stay away?

How long should you take for your honeymoon? This all depends upon your budget
and the value you get for your money. Take what the two of you feel comfortable
in taking.. It's completely up to your own tastes, budget, and time constraints.

Package vacations usually come in three-, four-, and seven-night lengths, with
the option of adding additional nights if you like. If you're setting up your
own vacation, then the, your budget is the limit.

If your budget is a major factor, why not have a four-night trip. You'll have a
little time to start to feel at home and, get into the honeymoon state of mind.
Enjoy some well earned time together after all the planning of the wedding.

On a week-long trip you'll start to feel really relaxed and you'll also have
some time for exploring whatever region you choose.

A long weekend honeymoon may be just right for you. These extended weekend
honeymoons give you the chance to mark the occasion of your wedding with a
little time away from home.

So where will you go on a long weekend honeymoon? Close to home so travel time
is short. Consider a honeymoon suite in a downtown hotel as weekend rates can
often be a fraction of the weekday rate. Perhaps a Bed and Breakfast would suit
you both with some time to relax in a quiet setting.

Many couples postpone their honeymoon a few months. This gives them a chance to
settle into their new life together. This can also provide couples with the
chance to catch a bargain season at their chosen honeymoon destination.

Other couples choose to honeymoon right after their wedding. Straight from
their wedding they go into their honeymoon as man and wife.

Which is best for you? Only the two of you can decide!

Accommodation Options

For those of you who are seeking peace and quiet on your honeymoon there are a
variety of options available. Bed and breakfasts plus small inns offer great
getaways and a chance to immerse you in more of the local area.

Many of these small inns were made around historic great houses on former
plantations. These are often intimate properties that only host a handful of
guests at a time. Here the two of you will be part of a small group of guests,
and you'll get to know each other as husband and wife. Often the owners of the
inn reside right on property, so you'll receive personal attention.

For some couples, the idea of real romance is a private villa, without any
other guests. Its just the two of you alone, apart from the occasional visit by
a cook or maid. They are there to help to meet your special requests, to
introduce you to island cuisine, and to make you feel pampered. Italy, St.
John, Jamaica and Barbados are always popular destinations for villa rentals.

Many resorts also offer villa rentals. These homes are located on the resort
property. Guests can enjoy the security and services of the resort while at the
same time having the space and facilities of a villa home. Here you can cook
your own food and do what you want without being rushed or interrupted.

Let the hotel know when you make the reservation you will be celebrating your
honeymoon. Many hotels like to recognize honeymooners. Some hotels offer a
special gift or even a room upgrade if available. Remember, as much as you want
to have a good time, the hotel also wants to make this an extra special trip for
the two of you. What better way to get return visitors or referrals?

Budgeting for your perfect honeymoon

Imagine the perfect honeymoon -- the beautiful room, the wonderful meals and
romantic setting. Then along comes the word "cost". How much is this going to
cost us?

Budgeting for the honeymoon is a necessary part of the whole process. How much
you will spend depends on many factors: where you honeymoon, when you travel,
the length of your stay etc.

So where do you start? Begin by doing a little comparison shopping. Prices
differ greatly, from destination to destination. The price you are quoted if
you call a property is usually the highest. Booking your honeymoon through tour
operators and wholesalers, often enables you to receive large you can often

The price of air travel to your honeymoon destination will varies constantly.
On any given flight, there are more price classes than first and coach. Factors
like Saturday night stay-over's can influence the price; plus seating costs can
change daily.

Check with travel agents for special deals. Be flexible and try different days
for different flights rates. Another way to save money is to go online and book
tickets through that facility. If you have more than one airport in your area,
it pays to compare the price of departing from various gateways. The difference
can sometimes be several hundred dollars.

Another boost to the honeymoon budget is changing currency prices. While it
might not be enough to make you select a destination, favorable exchange rates
can certainly help the two of you afford to splurge on an upgraded room or an
extra special dinner during your honeymoon.

Regardless of the month of your honeymoon, you will find both high and low
seasons around the world. One destination's high season may well be another
destination's low season.

Another option is "shoulder" seasons, those months just before and after high
season. During this period, you will find lighter crowds than during high
season, good weather, and prices more favorable to the budget.
