6 Top ‘Weddingmoon’ Destinations You Should Consider
For most newly-weds, their honeymoon is something to look forward to after their big day. For many, this is the time of complete indulgence while sharing special moments that you’ll cherish forever with your soul mate. However, planning a honeymoon after a costly wedding comes with a great deal of financial responsibility. It is for this reason why some couples choose to forego their honeymoon. They just don’t want to deal with the financial burden after already spending thousands on their wedding. Looking for a ‘weddingmoon’ destination might be the perfect solution to this.
A weddingmoon is the combination of a wedding and honeymoon. You choose somewhere that you love for your wedding (at home or abroad) and stay there for your honeymoon too. It will not only save you some money but will also minimise the stress that comes with planning your wedding and honeymoon from two different locations.
