Planning the Big Vaca

Planning your honeymoon, such an exciting time.

Where do you want to go? What do you want to do? and How much is this going to cost? These are probably the questions that you are going to be asking yourself.

Planning your honeymoon as a couple will ensure that you both have as much fun as you can, as well as look forward to the vacation together.

Questions to ask yourselves:
  • Want kind of honeymoon do you want to go on, fun in the sun, European elegance, ski, etc.?
  • How long is the honeymoon going to be, 1 week, 1 month? (Make sure you have enough or will have enough vacation days at work before booking anything, usually employers are flexible when you're going on your honeymoon, but always ask first.)
  • When do you plan on departing for your honeymoon, the night of the wedding, the next day?
  • What kind of a budget do you have?
After you have those questions answered go to a local travel agency, this should not cost you anything and they will give you lots of information and packets on places you might want to visit, you can decide later if you would like to book your travel through the agency.

Narrow down your destinations until you only have a few left and start looking online to see how much the vacation will really cost. Use websites like Priceline, Expedia and Travelocity to get cost estimates and websites such as Tripadvisor for great online reviews.

Finally try to book major items such as transportation and lodging about 6 months prior to your wedding date so to have the best selection. Happy traveling!
