How to Budget A Honeymoon


An average honeymoon is 7 days/6 nights. The average price per couple is $5,000.  You might want your honeymoon to be more opulent or you might be on a strict budget.  Now is the time to set some guidelines.  This will let you know how many of your honeymoon dreams can be made into reality.

HOT TIP:  Remember that you can use our registry so that family and friends can give you parts of your honeymoon as a present.

Keep in mind that honeymoons that take place in peak seasons (Christmas, Easter, Washington’s Birthday, Valentine’s Day, etc.) usually cost more than those which do not fall in heavily traveled months when hotel and airline rates are higher.


ADD IT UP. The Budgeter!

Memories are priceless but getting to where those memories are made can kill your libido! We want to help make sure your adventure is perfect and stress free. Start by paying attention to which experiences or details you would consider a “Must Have” and prioritize from there. Be romantic and fun, but also stay real. Remember that No matter the budget, you can still have a great honeymoon filled with memories of a lifetime and most important of all, NOT GO BROKE.
