You and your soon-to-be are planning your wedding and have dished out your own money, but you may not afford your Honeymoon or you may think your Honeymoon is the last priority on your checklist-, which is not! Honeymoons are a necessity especially after 12months planning this event for you and your special loved ones, you need time to unwind and relax with your Mr./Mrs. If you and fiancé live together, instead of having bridal registry that includes toasters, the latest Panini maker that will create dust in your kitchen pantry- how about creating your own honeymoon gift registry?
The best way to save money on the cost of your honeymoon is to try and get others to help you pay for it. Instead of registering at department stores, you can create the items you want for your trip and ask your guests to purchase them on your site.

A couple of additional ways to save costs is to purchase an all inclusive-package that includes air, hotel, food and drinks.

Instead of using a traditional guest signage book, dust out your old vintage dictionary-which can be used as a guestbook. If you love the beauty of words and what they signify in your relationship, this may be a unique way to display that. Ask guests to circle a meaningful word in the book (for example grocery-the place you met!) and they can write a thoughtful note.
