Are you finding it hard to save money for your honeymoon when faced with so many other wedding expenses? Just take it one step at a time and try these tips to help save money for that important romantic getaway.
The first thing to do is to decide how much you can afford to spend on your honeymoon. Then, divide the cost by the number of months until your wedding day and start setting aside that amount each month.
You’ll need to figure up the total cost of your lodging and transportation in order to know how much your daily budget will be while you are on your trip.
It is also a good idea to use credit cards while overseas or in an international destination. Credit card companies will have the lowest currency exchange rate and can save you money.
Also, always take into consideration there may be hidden costs like airport taxes, tips, taxi, and even departure taxes.
Another savings tip is to keep your eyes open for 2 for 1 dining coupons and other cost-savings booklets at tourist locations.
You may also want to shop at a local market for picnic type lunches. You will most likely enjoy the shopping experience, not to mention making it easy on the pocketbook.
Remember that if you budget your meal money, you may be able to splurge on a more expensive meal, as well. Most couples plan on at least one extravagant meal and tightly budget all the other meals.
If you eat at some of the local places away from all the hoopla, you may also be able to save money in this area.
And above all, don’t forget to mention to your hotel or B&B that you are on your honeymoon! Many hotels offer free gifts to honeymooners such as a bottle of wine or basket of fruit.
And most importantly, enjoy each other to the fullest. Take walks, enjoy the moonlight, hold hands, and speak love.
