19 Wedding Hacks Every Bride Needs to Know
Plan Your wedding and Honeymoon at the Same Time
If you’re planning to go on a honeymoon right after your wedding (as many couples do), set the budget and dates for your honeymoon at the same time as you do this for your wedding.
This is because you’ll want to plan your trip for when your honeymoon location is at its best. For example, if you have your heart set on a beach vacation, don’t set your wedding for December. You have to keep both in mind when you start making reservations.
The same goes for budget. If you know you have a certain amount for both your wedding and honeymoon, calculate the costs of your dream wedding and ideal honeymoon and work backward. If you have to compromise on the deluxe suite at the hotel so you can pay for the dress you want, so be it. Just don’t let yourself feel unprepared when it comes to your first trip as a married couple.
