My Vacation Lady gets this question ALL THE TIME…..What can we get for our honeymoon budget?
Over the next few weeks, we’ll try to give you some ideas of what your honeymoon budget will buy in 2017.
We’ve been talking about how to plan a realistic honeymoon budget for the last few weeks and just to help you get a better idea of what $5000 might get you, we’ve gone through our client’s reservations for 2017 to give you some idea of what $5000 will get you for your honeymoon.
Each of these reservations are ones that our clients have booked for 2017
