  • Wedding: May 2017

mrsnitti17 :  We booked about 8 months out. We’re getting married in May and booked in September. We also booked through a travel agent, and they also have a guaranteed for lower prices (flights and resort both).

We’re going to St. Lucia for 7 days and nights, and will be paying $5,500(USD) for all inclusive (flights, resort, food, drinks, transport, excursions, and an additional night stay in Chicago before we fly out). 

Scotland will be lovely, I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland and Ireland both!

mrsnitti17 :  were going to wait a few months post wedding (it’s in June 2017) for one. Our shortlist of places is all over the place and with all the Zika news, I’m thinking of holding off booking and seeing how things are then because a bunch of places we want to do are in the Zika map. I love planning trips and usually international I do it a few months out anyway.

We booked 6 months before for 3 weeks in Australia. We are travelling in the low season so we didn’t feel in a rush to book any earlier. If we are travelling somewhere in high tourist season, we try to book 9-10months before.

mrsnitti17 :  we booked ours around 10 months out, we’re off to Maui via LA and San Francisco. Probably would have saved money if we’d booked after trump was elected as it seems to have dropped the price of a lot of US holidays, but hey ho. We booked it then because we knew what we wanted lol

Have fun in Scotland! Wrap up warm though! X

We booked ours in Sptember and our wedding is July 2017, it might be early but we’re going on a two week cruise and if we didn’t book early we’d have missed out as it would have sold out pretty quickly.

We booked our honeymoon as soon as we were set on a wedding date.  My Fiance has to request his vacation well in advance (like now for next year) and he made sure he was able to get the time off before we bought tickets.  So we booked like 6 months in advance (we’re having a 7 month engagement).

netflixandchill :  Thank you so much! We both have always wanted to go to Australia. We’ve had the opportunity to go backpacking there with friends on several occasions but we wanted to wait for our honeymoon to go. It has been a long 8 years in the making!

scissorgirl :  I hear ya, wedding expenses are tough!  We had to dip really far into our savings, and whatever monetary gifts we had, for this honeymoon.  We just didn’t want to be like most people’s honeymoons, which is usually Europe or the Caribbean (plus we’re worried about Zika and there hasn’t been any reports – that we know about – re: Zika in the south pacific).

Booked our honeymoon 7 days before departure. We thought we’d have to do a mini-moon, but my passport arrived 2 days before the wedding, so I spent the next couple days after the wedding booking tours, rooms, etc. We had an amazing time! Excluding airfare our honeymoon cost about $2000, if even that. Your money goes so much further in SE Asia.

mrsnitti17 :  I think travel insurance is good to get. You never know what could happen between now and then. I definitely plan to buy it. My sister-in-law needed emergency surgery right before her honeymoon but since she and my brother didn’t buy travel insurance their $$$ spent on the honeymoon was totally wasted. $450 for travel insurance is a steal and gives you peace of mind.

My wedding is actually in July 2017 but Fiance and I decided Greece would be too hot for both of us in July and August, and a little cheaper in late September.
