After dropping all that money on the ultimate wedding, you may find yourself in a pinch when the time comes for your honeymoon. With that said, it doesn’t mean that you will be forced to forgo a romantic honeymoon. Just follow these tips and you won’t just be able to save but also have a honeymoon that is beyond memorable.

1. Budget

Sit down with your significant other and decide rationally on the amount you are willing to spend on your honeymoon, then stick to it. Next, discuss on the kind of honeymoon you’re after. Is it the beach, or the city? Once that is out of the way, you should be able to lock down an approximate budget. Travelling within Southeast Asia for the honeymoon would cost significantly less, as opposed to Europe, naturally.

2. All-inclusive resorts

One sure-fire way to keep to your budget is to seek for all-inclusive resorts or holidays as your honeymoon destination, whereby food, lodging and activities would have already been paid for upfront. That way, you won’t get any surprises in the form of extravagant bills and at the minimum, money will be the least of your worries. This translates to more quality time with your partner and guarantees peace of mind.

3. Last-minute deals

Another way to get the best deals are through last-minute bookings. Hotels and flights are always looking to fill up empty rooms and seats, so fantastic deals are always out there with a little bit of research. However, these deals usually only pop up at the eleventh hour, it gives you a lot less time to make plans. A good bet would be to aim for off-peak seasons for your honeymoon as there might be an increased availability then.

4. Make use of connections

More often than not, you would have friends, family or acquaintances everywhere around the world. You will be able to save a huge sum of money should any of them work in the hospitality industry or own some sort of property. Think maximum discounts, or better yet, try to snag stays for free. It may seem inconvenient to ask for favours, but sometimes little sacrifices like these just have to be made.

5. Consult your wedding planner

All you have to do is discuss with them your budget and they should be able to offer you a wide array of honeymoon packages that are, occasionally, more pocket-friendly than arranging every detail to a T on your own. With their expertise, you would be surprised as to what they can bring to the table. For free consultation with wedding planners with no strings attached, check out Wedding.com.my.
