Let’s face it, times a tough for all of us and we all need to cut costs here and there just to get by. If you are getting married and trying to start a new life together then times will be especially challenging and you don’t want your wedding to leave you struggling to survive financially after all you have your future life together to plan for. So where can you save money, well you can trim some of the expenses of the actual ceremony and when it comes to the honeymoon there are some money saving options.
It Doesn’t Have To Be A Long Break
Most newlyweds take a 2, 3 or even 4 week holiday for their honeymoon and while this is a great luxury to be able to afford the fact is that most of us just can’t afford a holiday of this length. However that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a weeklong trip somewhere where the weathers good and if you choose somewhere with lots of nice restaurants and things to enjoy then you can really make the most of that one week. You could always spend a second week at home together just chilling out and spending quality time together, after all that’s what your honeymoon’s all about.
Do You Really Need A Huge Wedding?
Many couples end up feeling forced into a huge wedding as they feel that they have to keep their families happy by inviting every second cousin that they haven’t seen since they were 10. Why not scrap the massive wedding and instead make it an intimate occasion with a small number of guests that you actually want to be there. That way you can use the money that you would have spent on a big wedding to go towards a great honeymoon so you get the best of both worlds.
Merge Your Wedding & Honeymoon Together
A great way of saving money on your wedding and honeymoon is to have them both at the same time and place. Many people decide to get married in front of a small group of friends and family in an exotic location such as a Mediterranean beach. This way you will have your wedding and once it’s over you’re automatically on your honeymoon. You can invite people to attend the wedding giving them the option to pay for their flight and accommodation if they want to attend. They get a holiday and you can stay a little extra to enjoy some quality time together.
Saving money on your honeymoon is possible you just have to give it some thought and be willing to sacrifice a little in other areas, as long as you end up with a trip you will remember for the rest of your life then it will be worth it.
