Honeymoon planning should be six to 12 months before the wedding date; longer if you’re considering a destination wedding.
A professional travel agent will listen to your wants and will ask questions about your budget, activities and preferences. Your travel agent will help you narrow down the choices and make recommendations for destinations and resorts that best match your desires.
So why do you need to start your honeymoon planning up to a year ahead of the wedding?
- Airline reservations generally open 330 days in advance and the lowest prices almost always sell out first. This is particularly important for travel during holidays and peak seasonal periods.
- The best rooms at resorts can sell out a year in advance. It’s your honeymoon, you want the room you have always dreamed of not the garden view!
- Cruise lines open reservations more than a year in advance. Book early for the best cabin selection.
- Destination weddings roll all of the wedding and honeymoon planning together, so more time is needed for more details. Plus, you’ll want to give guests more advance notice to plan their own travel.
- You’ll pay an initial deposit to hold your reservations and final payment will be due about 45 days before travel. More time between the two allows you to pay the balance in installments.
