When should you start planning your honeymoon? Would you be surprised at this answer? 9 to 11 months in advance!!!
This is a realistic time frame to assure your honeymoon will be exactly what you have envisioned. DON'T SETTLE - Plan well in advance! Here are 10 Reasons of Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Book Your Honeymoon.
1- Best flights – If you want that nonstop flight, or dreaming of an exotic destination, chances are there may only be one flight available. Airlines are cutting schedules and once it’s sold out, you’ll need to be more flexible.
2- Unique room categories – Love the idea of honeymooning in the super-deluxe-fabulous-penthouse-million-dollar-view-suite? With only one or two of these rooms available, well, they sell out first so start early!!
3- Boutique resorts – If an intimate, 12-room resort is your style… remember supply and demand from economics?? Don’t wait for those resorts to book - plan early!
4- More time to pay it off – Most packages require a minimum deposit (some as low as $300) with your final payment not due until 45 days prior to travel. This gives you longer to pay it off… think of it as a Honeymoon Layaway!
5- Early booking discounts – Most resorts and hotels offer early booking incentives. Get an early start and save big!
6- Best availability for destination experiences like excursions, tours, etc. – If you’ve got your heart set on swimming with the dolphins or other adventures it’s best to book these early!!
7- One more thing to check off your list – Let’s face it planning a wedding is a full-time job, with or without a wedding planner! So booking your honeymoon early will give you one more thing to proudly mark off on your never-ending wedding planning checklist.
8- Fun to plan – For most couples, looking at photos & videos of tropical islands or exotic destinations is inspiring and exciting, definitely more fun than seating charts.
9- More time to brag to your friends that you’re going somewhere fabulous!!
10- Early is always the best time to book your honeymoon! – Your honeymoon is one of life’s most memorable vacations, so if you’re holding out for that phantom “last minute deal” or just delaying the tough decision on where to go, you may be disappointed by waiting.
