My Vacation Lady has been helping engaged couples plan their dream honeymoons since 1994.  When it comes to the best time to plan your honeymoon, things will always vary based on the couple’s schedule, finances and where the honeymoon planning comes on their calendar of wedding plans.

It is always best to book early— as early as possible.  Please keep in mind that airfare is typically available 331 days out from the day you will return.  If you are getting married on June 15 and take your honeymoon very shortly after, airfare is typically available by the beginning of August.  There are variations.  Airlines like JetBlue, and Southwest may not post their schedules and open flights for sale until about 6 months prior to the date of departure.

Here is a good idea of when you should contact My Vacation Lady to help plan your dream honeymoon:
