The preparation of your wedding can be overwhelming, not to mention stressful. This is why the honeymoon was invented. It is a time for just the two of you to relax and enjoy after a stressful time of planning.
Planning the perfect honeymoon is something you should think of in advance. Along with your budget, you should think about where you want to go. Following are a few tips on making the process easy and fun. Right now is the time to start planning for your honeymoon if you are getting married this summer. There are some great travel deals going on with airlines right now, especially to tropical destinations. Think about flying out of White Plains, NY, on Jet Blue, as a great alternative to Bradley. Jet Blue is running some amazing deals right now.
To alleviate some of the stress, go to a travel agency. On-line web sites are fun to browse, to get an idea for location, however a travel agent is not only free, but they also have insider tips that an on-line site does not. A good, local agency can help you find your perfect getaway, and relieve much of the stress on you. Become a well-informed consumer by surfing travel web sites and reading travel guidebooks and magazines. Share your findings with a travel agent, she or he can use their knowledge and experience to help you sort through the information and locate options that are best suited to your budget and taste. Look for the CTC (Certified Travel Counselor), CTA (Certified Travel Associate), or DS (Destination Specialist) professional certifications.
