Consider a Mini-Moon

This is our last post in the honeymoon series this year. It’s been a great one!! If you haven’t had the chance, go back and check out all of the posts on honeymoon planning that all have great savings tips in each one. Enjoy!!


Every bridal couple needs some down time after the best (albeit busiest) day of their lives, but the state of the economy has inspired today’s newlyweds to ponder a mini-moon instead. An increasingly popular wedding industry buzzword, a mini-moon is simply an abbreviated getaway that lasts only 3-4 days in comparison to one or two weeks. It is usually a location that is drivable or a very short flight away.

While it may seem too short of a vacation for some, most couples are surprised to find that a mini-moon may be the most fun they have ever had on a holiday. No matter the reason, if your wallet, your work, or your weary credit line has you seconding guessing that debt-soaked sojourn through Tahiti, here are some reasons and benefits of booking a mini-moon.

Why Choose a Mini-Moon over a Maxi-Moon?

The reasons for choosing a mini-moon over a maxi-moon are plentiful – the first being, money. Put simply, some couples need a more affordable option than a hefty honeymoon package. Even all-inclusive resorts require international travel and those tickets alone can break the already fragile bank. For others, time off work is limited or they don’t like to travel (it’s okay to admit it).

Besides, if a couple has a family vacation spot at their disposal, why would they book an off-shore suite? A mini-moon is the perfect excuse to explore your great state or neighboring ones you’ve never been to. A Los Angeles couple that has always wanted to visit The Golden Gate Bridge or a Bostonian bride and groom who have never been to Cape Cod can take this opportunity to see what they’ve been missing. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that honeymoons have to take place in exotic locations; chances are (no matter where you live) there is a wonderful destination a few hours away.

Luxury and Low-Key: The Benefits of a Mini-Moon

A mini-moon can be so much more luxurious and low key than a traditional honeymoon. A honeymoon budget can quickly become stretched between plane fare, cab rides, and daily excursions. Contrarily, a mini-moon has already saved you your travel budget and can lend itself to an elegant honeymoon suite at a quaint B&B or the best-of-the-best spa treatments at a renowned day spa. You may be surprised to find that the quality of a mini-moon is much higher.

While a traditional beach honeymoon may sound relaxing and low key, there is nothing more romantic than having some privacy. Skipping over-run hotels and crowded beaches allows newlyweds that one-on-one time they’re craving. A small cottage for two or a riverside cabin with a deck hot-tub can make for the perfect climate of calm and togetherness.

A Mini-Moon is a Prelude to Paradise

Some couples do intend to take a honeymoon someday. The only problem is that they can’t afford to right now. A mini-moon can act as that prelude to paradise. Instead of running to the airport post-reception, this couple can enjoy the party (you know, the one they paid a pretty penny for) and then leisurely take a few days off. A mini-moon allows couples to begin their life together while saving up money for that dream vacation along the way.

Gay-Friendly Honeymoon Destinations for Same Sex Couples

Choosing a gay-friendly honeymoon destination for same-sex couples may seem simple, but with so many European and Caribbean countries still restricting same-sex marriage, it can be a disappointment to feel uncomfortable on one of the happiest vacations of your life.

Instead, there are many welcoming and equality-minded honeymoon destination spots that can make your honeymoon as sweet as it should be

Gay-Friendly Honeymoon Hotspots in the U.S.

Las Vegas, NVLas Vegas is known for its amazing shows and luxurious accommodations. For the couple that loves to dance the night away, Vegas prides itself on having top-notch gay bars like Krave, Piranha, and Goodtime Bar & Nightclub. Aside from the clubbing and casinos, couples can take a helicopter ride over the strip or dine at some of the finest restaurants in the world. Best hotel? Mandalay Bay is very popular with same-sex couples.

Key West, FLFrom the gay and lesbian trolley tour to drag queens at one of the many avant garde theaters and downtown live music joints, Key West prides itself on being colorful and including every person into their “one-human family.” From snorkeling the coral reefs to sipping mojitos on Duval Street, Key West truly is a tropical getaway worthy of a few sun-kissed afternoons.

Best Gay-Friendly Relaxing Honeymoon Destinations

Napa Valley, CAFrom massages and mud baths at some of the best spas in the entire world to sipping Pinot among golden leaved vineyards, it doesn’t get any more romantic than Napa Valley. With quaint B&B’s and luxury hotels to choose from, this is an Italian-inspired honeymoon experience without the jet lag or the passport.

Gay-Friendly Honeymoon Spots Around the World

Argentina – For couples who want to see one of the Wonders of the World, Argentina has it. Iguazu Falls is one of the most breathtaking waterfalls. This jet-stream of water creates a natural border between Argentina and Brazil, making it a poetic point of division. Iguazu Grand Resort Spa & Casino is secluded and offers full-service accommodations from hotel restaurants to live cabaret in their posh cafe by night.

CuracaoKnown for their “live and let live” slogan, their website is one of the few that openly encourages same-sex couples to visit. From strolling the sherbet colored casitas of Willemstad to dining on freshly caught fish by some of the best local free-hand fisherman in the world, this below-the-hurricane-belt honeymoon spot has drinks to die for and year-round sun to soak up.

SabaThis may be the most private island you’ve never heard of. Twenty-eight miles east of St. Maarten, this island getaway isn’t overrun by tourists and instead serves seclusion with a side of exclusivity. Accommodations here are more like sprawling mansions in the Hollywood Hills and only allow for up to 18 guests to stay at a time.

If you want to get outdoors, be sure to hike Mount Scenery (need we say more) and frolic in the sapphire tinged sea while enjoying calling each other by your newly shared last name.

Fall wedding flowers – Seasonal Flower Guide and Ideas

Fall wedding flowers are stunning and very romantic. Most fall flowers are very colorful and create instant strong impressions. If you are one of the lucky bride who is getting married in fall, this guide will help you choose the perfect fall flowers for your wedding and still stay within budget.
The colors of your flowers (in bouquets and other decorations) should match the colors of your themed weddings. Fall wedding colors are typically rich red, purple, brown, light yellow and orange. Thus fall flowers tend to be very warm and vibrant.

Fall wedding flowers in season

It is the best to buy local seasonal flowers for your wedding. It is not only cheaper but the flowers are also more readily available and easy to find. If you have a fall themed wedding, using flowers in season also accentuate more the fall feeling.

Sunflower

Sunflower is a popular wedding flower for summer and fall weddings. Their prime time is from July to October, when they look the best and also the cheapest. Sunflowers are vibrant and full of life and represents energy and happiness. They also come in different sizes, the small sized sunflowers could be used in a bouquet, while bigger ones could be incorporated in other wedding decorations.

Chrysanthemum (mums)

Chrysanthemums (often called mums) are available all year round, but fall / autumn is actually their main season. Chrysanthemums are very versatile wedding flowers as they have many different sizes and colors, which is suitable for many wedding themes. Their colors range from pink, white, green to yellow, orange, etc. Chrysanthemums are also top budget wedding flowers as they are often cheap, sturdy and you can even buy them from supermarkets or groceries stores without compromising their quality.

Marigold

Marigold comes in different colors but most commonly in vibrant orange and yellow. Marigold is also known for its strong scent, thus be careful not to use a lot of this flower in your table centerpieces.

Dahlias

Dahlias is another popular fall wedding flower. For brides who like some dark color touches in their bouquet or centerpieces, dahlias can be for you. Their colors range from white to dark purple.

Zinnia

Zinnia is a not so popular fall wedding flower. They are big round blooms that are cheerfully colorful, their usual colors are pink, red and orange. As they are not used very popularly, having zinnias in your wedding will create an unusual but unique look and feel.

Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas are not actually in full blown in fall but they are still available. I love hydrangeas, especially in the vivid pink and the purplish blue. They create a dramatic look that instantly draws attention. They are also easy to work with and last for a long time. Maybe that’s why hydrangea is one of the most popular wedding flowers.

Fall / autumn fruits

Fall is the season when fruits are ripe and hanging invitingly on the trees, the season when apples redden all the yards and gardens. With this inspiration, fruits are usually incorporated in fall wedding flowers design. You can use different types of berries and crab apples are lovely to add to your decorations and bouquets. They can be secured in place with a pin and mixed with flowers and greeneries.

Fall leaves could make awesome ornaments to your decorations. You can mix them here and there in your bouquet or leave them on the table.

If for some reason you cannot find seasonal fall flowers in your area, you can always use flowers that are available all year round, for example: roses, orchids, lilies and gerberas. These flowers come in many different colors, thus you can easily find the colors that are suitable for your fall wedding. These all-year flowers, especially for orchids and gerberas, also last a very long time. I used orchids in my wedding also and they lasted for nearly 2 weeks!

Honeymoon Planning Advice ~ Humble Honeymoons

For many couples, planning a green wedding is an extension of everyday living. Eating local and organic foods, recycling, and conserving energy have become daily practices in hopes to contribute to a smaller overall carbon footprint. And it doesn’t stop at the wedding. Earth friendly honeymoons are becoming more popular as engaged couples continue to find ways to live a more eco-conscious life.

Below are tips for planning your green getaway:

Hire a green travel agent. If planning your own trip seems like too much to handle while planning your wedding, contact a travel agent who specializes in green, eco-friendly travel. They’ll take care of the details for you and you can rest assured that your trip will have minimal impact on the environment.

Go Ecotouring. Ecotourism is the term for planning a socially and environmentally conscious trip. The International Ecotourism Society says that ecotourism is: “Responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people.” These trips are organized by reputable tour groups whose best interest in improving the environment where you would like to travel. Your adventure will include volunteering and comprehensive interaction with the local people, culture and ecosystem. Groups like National Geographic organize everything for you-all you have to do is show up and be willing.

Stay at an eco-friendly hotel. Do your own research and find a hotel or other accommodations that practice eco-friendly hospitality. Hotel and resorts are answering the call of the many green consumers who want to walk the proverbial Earth-saving walk-without compromising comfort and luxury.

Find local & organic food. Before you go, research restaurants that serve local and organic fare and eat there. These haunts tend to serve the freshest food with a dose of local culture. If you have your own kitchen, shop at a local market and prepare a romantic dinner or breakfast in bed for two.

Rent an alternative mode of transportation. Check out hybrid car rentals, motorcycles, scooters, or even a bicycle! If you’re traveling through Europe, take advantage of the spectacular public transportation system available there.

Consider carbon offsets. Carbon offsets are a way for you to give back what you take. This controversial method of caring for Mother Earth, can at the very least curb any carbon overload guilt that you may have for flying all the way to Tahiti. Whether you agree or not, it’s not a bad idea to plant a couple of extras trees anyway.

Explore the world around you. Why not take advantage of this time you have after your marriage and explore your local community. We tend to save these excursions for when out-of-town guests come to visit, but why not enjoy them with your new spouse. Not only will you save resources, you’ll save money, time and stress by having to plan and pay for an exotic vacation. Another alternative is to rent a vacation home within driving distance and take. the. week. off. You deserve it.

10 Cost Savings Tips for Honeymoon Planning

In order for you to have the perfect honeymoon you have always dreamed of requires homework and research. It is a bit out of date to create the honeymoon as a surprise, the perfect honeymoon these days is a honeymoon that is planned by the both of you. Look for a honeymoon that provides many amenities. Look for discounts, gift baskets, fruit baskets, champagne, chocolate treats, room upgrades, and a free day tour of your honeymoon location.

Before you go on your honeymoon, there are many things you need to do, like learn the culture of where you are going, learn a few words of the language, get medical shots that are needed, get your passport and VISA far in advance. Keep all your things in a folder and keep all that you need close by. Don’t draw attention to yourselves, don’t wear fancy jewelry and fancy clothing in public. Keep some extras clothes in each other’s luggage just in case a luggage piece misses the plane. For most destinations you don’t have to worry much, there are currency exchange ATMs in most honeymoon spots. Here are some tips to help save you money in your honeymoon planning.

Tip 1 – Use a Travel Agency that Specializes in Your Type of Honeymoon 
Before you begin your honeymoon search, don’t talk to each other about your perfect honeymoon just yet. The bride and groom should go through a honeymoon exercise. Each one of you should write down on a piece of paper the types of honeymoons you each would enjoy. Don’t give a hint to the other before writing your choices down. You want no undue influences to drive a decision.

Your Honeymoon Choices (Write Down 3)
1) A Tropical Island Beach Resort
2) A Luxurious Resort Hotel
3) A Romantic International Sightseeing City Adventure
4) A U.S.A. Vacation (Las Vegas/Disney World/New York City/City Hopping/U.S.A. Shore Vacation)
5) A Luxurious Cruise
6) A Rugged Retreat (Ranch Cabin/Hike in the Mountains/Water Sports)
7) Stay Local and Veg Out (No Phone Calls/No Computer/No Answering the Door/No Television)

After each of you writes down your 3 dream honeymoon choices, see if any of the choices is one that you have in common. Now you can talk to each other about your choices. If there are no choices that you agree on, the decision on the honeymoon should be made by the bride, sorry guy’s a tie goes to the honeymoon choice made by the bride. After deciding, you want to search for the travel agent that is expert in the type of honeymoon you are looking for. Some travel agencies are more geared to a trip to Europe or Asia, others are geared to the Caribbean or South America, others are geared to U.S. cities, and others are geared to cruise lines. The travel agencies tend to get bargains in the area of expertise and have expert knowledge in those locations, so it’s best to find an agency that specializes in the type of honeymoon you are seeking.

Tip 2 – Find a Certified Agent that has Special Relationships
Not all travel agents are the same, tend to look for a certified travel agent. Certified travel agents have elevated their travel expertise to a bonafide professional level. Yes mannerisms and personality traits are important too, you might get lucky and find a good agent that is not certified but using a certified agent often brings you a great honeymoon and great cost savings. A certified agent should have a license that shows they are certified. They have gone through a rigorous program which is time consuming which includes taking many courses and traveling to all the resorts they advertise. Very often, the certified travel agent has made many connections, they personally know many important people in the travel world, they are able to provide discounts to many of the travel vendors at a honeymoon destination. The certified agent has been to the location, they can tell you about anything first hand about the location, get you discounts for automobile rental, get coupons for restaurants they recommend, tell you first hand where to go, tell you what taxis to take and ones not to take. The certified travel agent can answer any questions you have about the location and in many ways can save you money.

Tip 3 – Avoid Major Resorts that Charge a Premium for Being Well Known  
There are many resorts that are great, but they cost you a pretty penny because they include advertising dollars in their charges. You can get a better deal to going to honeymoon destinations that are a little less known. Through the magic of the internet you can check out resorts using Google Earth, Google Maps, and the Lonely Planet. The places that advertise will tend to have high prices. Years ago, it was safer to go to well known wedding destinations. Today, you can investigate almost anywhere to go for your honeymoon, stay away from places that are well known and look for great places away from the beaten path.

Tip 4 – Travel to Resorts that are Closer to Reduce Traveling Costs
There will be times in your life when you have money to spend and there are times when you have to watch your budget. When the budget is tight look for resorts that are nearer to your location. Remember that the honeymoon period should be a time when you need to be more focused on each other and instead of finding an exotic honeymoon spot that’s far away, you can do just as well as finding a honeymoon location that does not require expensive traveling costs. If you live in the good old U.S.A. consider going on your honeymoon to a Caribbean resort, a Mexican resort, a bed & breakfast in an American city, an American shore house, or a cabin in the mountains. Just remember to travel not so far for your honeymoon, and you will be surprised on the savings you will get by not spending so much money on energy costs.

Tip 5 – Travel to Resorts During Their Off-Peak Season
You can save yourself a lot of money by traveling to destinations during their non-peak season. Many resorts will show their daily rates and you can save money by going to resorts when their prices are down. Many resorts also charge different amounts depending on the day of the week. Some hotels are fully booked during the week and have a lot of vacancies on weekends so they bring their prices down. Sometimes hotels will show their prices for the upcoming months and you can analyze what dates you can get better deals and what dates will be more expensive. Avoid the peak season of resorts, very often the peak season of many resorts will start at Easter, with May and June being the wedding season and July and August will be the summer season when school is out, another peak season happens at Christmas and New Years. During peak season, air flights are more expensive, hotels are more expensive, and many wedding vendors will also charge higher prices. If you have your wedding and honeymoon during the busy season, expect to get a quadruple whammy, higher prices for travel, hotel, wedding venue, and wedding vendors.

Tip 6 – Use Travel Websites to Get the Best Deal
There are literally hundreds of websites you can hunt for deals for travel, hotels, rental cars, cruise lines, and restaurants. The top websites to look for deals use to be orbitz, travelocity, expedia, priceline, hotel, and many others. Wedding couples could check out many travel websites looking for the best deal. A couple of years ago, everything changed. A website called www.kayak.com bought out a company called Sidestep and what Kayak can do is you put in a destination location and a specific date and kayak will go searching the hundreds of websites to give you the best deal from all the websites. You can then book a deal if it’s satisfactory. It’s not a major effort anymore to book a great deal.

Now on to a little secret, first you can search kayak then you can get an idea of cost on a location or an airline. You tell the business you got a tentative deal, you then can ask them if they can get you a better deal. If it’s a hotel, the hotel keeps better room locations at their front desk. You can get a room with a more terrific view or near the pool if you use the front desk, if you book through a travel website you might get a poor location at that hotel such as by a vending or ice machine. You might even get an upgrade, tell the resort hotel you are on your honeymoon. If you don’t get a better deal just go back and book using kayak. The chances are you will get a better room and more attention by the hotel staff booking through the front desk of the hotel and negotiating a good deal.

Tip 7 – Find Me Your Best Deal at the Lowest Price within My Budget
Basically there are two type of travel agents, the ones that take your basic information and your budget and book you with the first thing they see with your criteria. The other type of agent will shop around looking to find you the best deal at the lowest price working with your budget. Find an agent that keeps hunting around to find you the best honeymoon deal. You want a customer service focused agent. Many travel agents are more focused on their job as a numbers game, spend the least amount of time devoted to a client and then move on to another client. The great travel agent asks you many questions, finds out what you are looking for in a honeymoon destination. finds you a great honeymoon location, searches more to see if they can top the original location, is there to answer any questions you may have, finds a lot about the resort, and finds great deals for you, leaves you with all sorts of information about the honeymoon location. A great service agent keeps you informed of problems, such as civil unrest, or an impending strike with taxes in the area or helps re-book another honeymoon spot because of an impending hurricane. When you are finding a travel agent, find the one that goes the extra mile for you.

Tip 8 – Honeymoon Hunt Using Google Maps and Google Earth
Google Maps and Google Earth have become powerful resources and is a great way to plan your honeymoon. The wedding couple of today has many different resources to help them find a place to honeymoon. The couples of today have telephones, IPhones, IPads, IPods, Androids, Blackberrys, laptops, and desktop computers. On most of these devices there is Google Maps and Google Earth. Couples can pull up many destination wedding locations and can check the area out, what is the atmosphere of the hotel, how far is it to different places, what’s the beach look like near by and gets views like they are really there. You can now get topography on how things look and by using the websites the hotels in the area you get views of some of the rooms and you also may get coupon discounts from restaurants and spas. By using both the hotel website and google maps you can get an idea of the view from different rooms and know how areas like the pool look like. Google Maps and Google Earth even give you directions on places you might visit.

Now for a little trick for finding a great deal at a hotel. Many hotels in a honeymoon area, advertise in travel websites. Some hotels do not advertise in travel websites and those that do not tend to have cheaper prices for their rooms in the hotel. Google Earth and Google Maps show all the hotels in the area both the ones that show up in travel websites and the ones that do not show up in these websites. You find the ones that don’t advertise, you call them and often you can find good deals with them.

Tip 9 – Investigate what a Timeshare May Offer for Your Honeymoon 
You might consider a timeshare location for your honeymoon. Timeshares tend to be cheaper than many hotels offering you with great savings. Once you do all the paperwork with a timeshare and make your initial investment in a timeshare property all that is left is to enjoy the property and you just have to make payments on how your contract is set up. You generally make an arrangement to have the timeshare property in a wonderful spot once a year. Every year maybe on your anniversary you have a vacation spot, in future years bring family, your friends, your co-workers and future kids.

You also have options available with timeshares. You can trade your timeshare for another convenient date with someone else. You can swap your time share with others, you can travel to other destination spots, just make sure your timeshare location is in a high demand location so you get a really nice location you can swap vacation spots with. Be careful of timeshare companies, they may push you into looking at a timeshare at a high price and reduce the price making it look like you are getting a great deal when in fact it’s not. Take your time looking at time shares and study the situation. Great timeshare properties get taken very fast so keep checking for good deals.

You also may find great deals for timeshare properties to rent from others. A good way to find cheap timeshares is from online auctions such as ones found on EBay. Often you may purchase your timeshare from individuals from online resources which may save you a lot of money.

Tip 10 – Take Advantage of Resorts That Offer All Inclusive Deals
When planning your honeymoon look for resorts that offer honeymoon packages. Many resorts provide you with bundling of services. The bundling of services might include many amenities. For one price you may cover all your accommodation, cover all your meals breakfast, lunch, and dinner, cover night clubs and a couple of drinks, cover night entertainment, cover golf and tennis, cover a round of tropical drinks at the pool or beach, cover spa services such as a massage and include the sauna, and local attractions. Many caribbean resorts include all inclusive deals, such as resorts in Jamaica, Bahamas, Antigua, and St. Lucia. The primary resort that offers inclusive deals is a company called Sandals. Other places that offer inclusive deals includes Las Vegas, Disney, and some of the cruise lines. Great inclusive deals can also be found at resorts in Mexico, Colombia, and Canada.

It is highly recommended to use a travel agent for your honeymoon, to minimize the chances of things going wrong on your honeymoon, if something comes up you have an agent that can help you. In this day and age you can create a perfect honeymoon yourself if you learn about booking honeymoons. The honeymoon needs to be perfect, to get your marriage off to the right start!

See you on the other side!
