Decide whether you will be having your honeymoon at the same resort/destination or if you would like to travel somewhere else. This is very important because you will need to plan this early as well. Some things that my clients have done in the past is stayed at the same resort but their friends and family left the day after the wedding leaving them time alone to spend time with each other without the distractions. Also some of the resorts and Cruise lines offer special honeymoon packages that you can take advantage of. This is where the knowledge from a travel agent is special.
One of the best things that you can do to achieve the best results from affordable destination weddings is to hire a travel agent. The agents have a profound understanding in destination and resort. Their years of experience will help you find the right resort that addresses your needs comprehensively. Nonetheless, before hiring the destination wedding travel agent, you need to look at his experience, reputation and service fees.
You will probably want to take pictures with many of the guests that attend your wedding. If you haven’t specified a certain time and place for taking photographs, hunting down these people can be chaotic, particularly if you’re having a big wedding. Tell your guests before the wedding where and when you’d like to take pictures. Also, make sure your photographer knows.
Upgrade your travel and broaden your horizons. Just like hotels, think about upgrading your destination. If you normally go to Florida, check rates in the US Virgin Islands. If you normally travel in the Caribbean, check out the amazing deals that are being offered in Europe. You may be able to take the whole family to Nice on the same dime as last years’ trip to The Keys.
Maximize your spending by using a reward program credit card for your major expenses. Because of the cost involved, it pays to have something that pays you back. Put all of your wedding purchases on the card and watch the rewards accumulate quickly.
Whether you like to swim, surf or sail, head west until you see one of the many magnificent beaches. Bring your blanket and soak up some rays. Beaches are family friendly and also a great place to check out the local scenery.
If you would like to arrange something really special and romantic as a surprise for your spouse, like a beautiful private sunset dinner on the beach, take your consultants email address and email her about your idea. She can then make the arrangements for you.
