Not sure when you should reserve your honeymoon? Procrastination may cost you your dream resort, room and even your budget.
You have set the date, booked the venue, purchased the dress and secured the photographer. You even contacted your travel agent about your honeymoon. You found the most heavenly resort, perfect room with an oceanview and perfect flight times, all within your budget. Your dream honeymoon! Yet with the wedding nine months out what is the rush to reserve or purchase, you still have time, nine months seems so far away and you know what you want.
It is now two months out from your wedding. Everything is planned. The only thing left is to make the call to your travel agent and tell her you are ready to book the honeymoon of your dreams that you have told anyone who would listen about. You have dreamed about the ocean breeze and beautiful turquoise water that will be right outside your door. Heaven! After the hours of wedding planning, dress fittings and stuffing invitations, it seems the honeymoon is all you can think of!
Your dream may have just turned into your nightmare. The resort is near capacity, the only room available is a garden view (no ocean breeze and turquoise water outside your door) and the perfect flight is full with the only alternative being 8 hours longer with two more stops and double the price.
This doesn’t have to happen to you! Do not procrastinate. When you find what you want, grab it! A small, most often refundable deposit can hold your ocean front room. You may have to pay for your air at the time of booking but it is the perfect flight right? Do you want an extra 8 hours subtracted from your beach time? The increased airfare taking money from your Spa or Tour budget?
This applies as well to your guests attending your destination wedding. They should not wait until the last minute. The special negotiated rate for your guests may have passed the booking deadline and the maybe flights are full. Remember, destination locations (unless it is Las Vegas) do not have flights every hour on the hour.
No more procrastination! You deserve the honeymoon of your dreams. Put the honeymoon on your planning list with the same importance as the other necessities, venue, dress and photographer.
