If you can book it you can pay for it.  So as long as they’re taking bookings for that time (at this point they totally are) you can pay for it. 

If you don’t want to book online, you can just walk into a travel agency and they will help you.  Ask around your friends and family for referrals, as its like everything else, some people are amazing, others do the bare minimum.  

We book everything online.  But we’ve both travelled extensively.

Have fun!

@AlmostMrsDuncan:  Walk into a travel agency and tell them you want to go somewhere!

 

But I agree with PPs, I use Expedia and Trip Advisor to plan all my trips! 🙂

Depending on where you’re located, a lot of cities have a local wedding website where vendors are listed, so a travel agent on there would be someone local to you who likely focuses on honeymoons since they are targeting brides.  I know my local city has a site like this. 

Or search online for a honeymoon specialist or someone who specializes in the Bahamas if you know you are definitely going there (try the Bahamas tourism site).

May 2014 is coming up soon, but if you book with an agent pretty quickly after the intial deposit you’ll be able to set up a payment plan. That’s one of the big differences, since with an online booking site you’re normally going to have to make full payment up front.

Hiring the right travel agent is just as important to finding your perfect honeymoon as finding just any travel agent.  They should be interested in getting to know your interests and travel style and give you an assortment of options to choose from and listen to your feedback.  Also, when booking with a travel agent, you pay an initial deposit to secure your reservation, and then the remaining balance closer to the honeymoon (generally 30-45 days prior).  Good luck!
