Who paid for your honeymoon?

Joey, on 11/June/2018 at 07:55 Posted in Honeymoon

One of the earliest and biggest conundrums you'll encounter when you’re planning a wedding is figuring out who pays for what. There are lots of different ways to divvy things up, so share your own perspective!

Is your honeymoon a gift, or are you paying for it yourselves?

Thank you for playing this game! If you're still trying to sort out who will be paying for what parts of your wedding I hope this gave you some ideas. You can also learn more about who traditionally pays for what by reading this Traditional Wedding Budget Breakdown.

    We're paying for it ourselves. The money we received as gifts from the wedding helps - but we certainly didn't "NEED" it. We are also utilizing all of our loyalty points that we've spent pretty much our entire lives collecting (Aeroplan for our flights, and my husbands IHG rewards for hotels in larger cities). As a result we are flying business class/ first class from Toronto - Singapore - Sydney - New Zealand - Toronto! We are also staying with his aunt who has a 2bdrm condo while in Singapore. As for the rest of our accommodations - we are utilizing a mix of staying with friends, Airbnb & boutique hotels.

    My FH is currently deployed and they will fly me to see him so we are taking advantage of that for our honeymoon. He will pay for everything once I arrive.
