Every couple that My Vacation Lady speaks to during a honeymoon consultation has a honeymoon budget. They may not think they have a budget but they actually do. Whether they want to spend $1000 per person or $10,000 per person, every couple has an idea of what they want to spend on their honeymoon and part of our job is to help them figure out what they are comfortable spending.
During the consultation, we’ll ask about the experiences that our honeymooners want to have during their honeymoon. Do they want us to include excursions, tours, honeymoon amenities (like a beachfront dinner or couples massage) or are they the type that prefer to plan when they get there?
There are times that we can ball park (or guess) at the cost of a honeymoon but there are other times that we won’t be able to guess at the cost without a good amount of research. There is one thing that we have no control over—airfare. Where we can control the cost of your honeymoon is the type of hotel or accommodations, the inclusions and the length of time you will be on your honeymoon.
How can you keep your honeymoon to your budget?
- Be flexible with your destination
- Be flexible with your dates (both when you travel and for how long)
- Be flexible with the hotels that you choose.
- Choose an all inclusive resort
