If you’re a couple who prioritizes experiences over stuff, having your guests contribute to your dream honeymoon trip is a no-brainer. Sites like Honeyfund allow guests to contribute cash funds for you to use on your post-wedding trip.
Even a trip as special as a honeymoon can be stressful if you’re on a limited budget. Worrying about money is the last thing you should be doing while celebrating with your new spouse. Before you book your trip, brainstorm what costs you will incur and estimate the amounts.
Pack a carry-on with your essentials just in case your luggage is lost. Throw in a pair of sandals, bathing suit, toothbrush, a dress, and a nighty for your first honeymoon night, and anything else that will lessen the worry of what to do if your luggage is lost or delayed a few days.
If you are into travel hacking, you can reduce the honeymoon cost. One way is to collect points and miles by putting all of your wedding expenses on new travel rewards credit cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Capital One Venture X card.
