This morning, I have a treat for you. Meet Carlie Finch, she’s the beauty behind 2 Travel Anywhere and she offers FREE help to lovely couples planning their honeymoon! I didn’t have the honor of working with her at the time of our wedding, but we did work with a travel agent and it may have been the BEST thing we did. Having a travel agent to help you plan your honeymoon is such an amazing service. They can help you narrow down your choices, book your travel and help you with the ins and outs of the trip. When we “planned” our honeymoon, we literally didn’t have to do a thing! We just chose our location, price range and she helped book everything. It was so easy and took the burden of planning it away!
I had the opportunity of meeting Carlie this summer and she is one of the most kind people I’ve ever met–her positive energy is contagious! I thought it might be helpful for couples to hear a little bit about what she does, so read below for a little interview I did with Carlie.
- Tell me a little about yourself/business and how you got started:
I love to travel and share my experience with others.You should do in life what you’re most passionate about.
- How long have you been planning honeymoons?
I have been planning honeymoons for 4 years.
- What is your favorite part/thing about planning honeymoons?
Your honeymoon is so special. To me it is so important to help couples plan their once in a lifetime trip. It is great to know when couples come back from their honeymoon and they tell me that their honeymoon was everything they ever dreamed. Your wedding is about celebrating your new beginning of your life together and the honeymoon is about the two of you celebrating the beginning in a destination that is special.
- What are some top destination for Nashville couples?
I love booking couples all over the world, but majority of couples from Nashville like to go with Caribbean or Costa Rica options because the flights are shorter from Nashville.
- Favorite piece of advice/tip for couples planning their honeymoon:
Try to hold your room as soon as you know your wedding date. The early you book the better deal you get. It’s typically only $200 is due to hold your room.
- All-Inclusive, a must-do?
Really depends on what the couple is looking for. All-inclusive is a really nice perk to know everything upfront is included for your honeymoon, all food, drinks and alcohol is included. Some all- inclusive resorts don’t allow tipping, which is really nice because everybody at the resort gets the same service.
- Any advice on choosing relaxation-based vs. adventure-based trips?
Really depends on the couple. I love to send a questionnaire and design a custom honeymoon based on the couple likes and interests. Not everybody is looking for the same type of honeymoon experience.
- What does the honeymoon planning process look like with you?
With so many options on the internet it can be overwhelming trying to pick the best option. We book anywhere in the world, but specialize with Sandals resorts. We personally travel a few weeks a year to different resorts and personally share our experience why one resort is better than the other. Best thing about booking with us, it is FREE and we will mail everything you need to take with your for your honeymoon. From the moment you contact us to plan your honeymoon to the moment you arrive back from your honeymoon we follow up and see if you have any questions.
- How do couples get started with you/2 Travel Anywhere?
From the moment couple contact me the honeymoon planning process begins. It helps to have your wedding date set before looking into honeymoon options.
There you have it, friends! Carlie is so fun to work with and helps save you time and money. With the million things that couples have to do when planning the wedding, any time saved is a treat! Make sure to check out 2 Travel Anywhere and see how she can help you plan an amazing trip!
