The Budget Savvy Bride

The current average honeymoon cost of $5,000 can be intimidating to many, but fortunately, there is a lot you can do to significantly undercut that bill. Your honeymoon will not be the only treasured vacation of your marriage, but it will be the first.

So, naturally, you want it to feel magical and memorable. The great news is that there is plenty you can do to plan a beautiful trip that doesn’t leave your savings in shambles.

How To Save Money on a Honeymoon: Cutting Costs, Not Quality

Where will you go? When will you go there, and for how long? What do you plan to do while you’re there?  If you are planning a more extended honeymoon, consider taking it during a time that will be cheaper to travel. Location will likely have just as much impact as timing. Where you choose will affect the costs of your flights, lodging, food, local transport, and more.

Make Strategic Choices Upfront

Prioritize and Compromise

Use The Tools at Your Disposal
