Now the Fun Begins...Where to Honeymoon?
After months of planning your wedding, you and your honey get to now get the most exciting post-wedding event: your honeymoon!
First, work together and come to a compromise about the place you want to go. You have the world at your disposal: a tropical paradise, a European getaway, a cross-country road trip... You can sit by the beach with drinks in hand, or visit historical monuments and museums; romance is not isolated in one corner of the globe.
Can you take two weeks off to explore all of the Hawaiian Islands or can you only squeeze in a long weekend? Make sure you and your hubby can take the same amount of time off from work and other obligations. Give yourself at least a full week if possible, so you'll have a nice, relaxing time and be able to see and do everything you'd like.
Next, budget your trip. If you can, use a little of your wedding gift money to treat yourselves to the nicer hotel and extra night or two stay at the place of your dreams. If you can't afford to spend a lot of money, a long weekend or "mini-moon" in Las Vegas or Disney World can give the two of you just enough special time, without burning a hole in your wallet.
Remember to think about the time of season you're going in regards to the cost. For example, honeymoon spots such as ski and spa resorts, like those found in Aspen, Colorado, have different rates for holidays and skiing seasons. Going in an off-month can help save.
