Nowadays, a wedding does not come cheap. Couples spend much that some of them even take out loans for this event. We can’t blame them, however. A wedding is a once in a lifetime affair, and it is a life milestone. Everyone wants theirs to be perfect.
However, the most couple seems to forget that they have another affair to prepare for, and that is their honeymoon. Here are three things that couples must take note when it comes to honeymoons and wedding planning.
A wedding budget must count in honeymoon expenses.
Most couples choose to travel, as part of their honeymoon, and that means having to pay for transportation, accommodation, and other expenses that will come along their way. Sometimes, relatives and friends pay for the couple’s honeymoon expenses, but it is still a comforting thought to have some amount set aside for this equally memorable part of married life.
Honeymoon expenses are often overlooked.
It is easy to get caught up with all the wedding preparations concerns that couples often forget about honeymoon preparations. Alternatively, even if the couple can work on their honeymoon logistics, they often find themselves getting money from their daily allowance.
So for those who are still on the stage of setting a wedding budget, do consider your honeymoon costs, as well, so you will not be taken by surprise.
The good news is; it is possible to budget for the honeymoon while wedding planning.
Instead of gifts, some couples can request their family and friends to help them create a honeymoon fund to offset expenses for such. Another common practice nowadays is to delay their honeymoon to give themselves time to have a sufficient fund for such.
Just like weddings, honeymoons need not be so expensive. What’s important is that you can spend and enjoy the quality time together and create memories that will last a lifetime.
