I never included my honeymoon in my wedding budget; I’m budgeting for it seperately. But that’s because my parents are giving me money for my wedding while my honeymoon is 100% paid for by FI and me.

@bridalprincess:  include or don’t include it in the wedding budget.  it doesn’t really matter because the fact remains the same…you still have to pay for it either way.

I am sure you will get some money from your guests as gifts at the wedding.  Would you be willing to use that to finance your honeymoon?

It sounds like you are really hung on on staying under $5,000 no matter what – even if you have to call it “separate” from the wedding budget or saying yor H is paying for it so therefor you are still under budget.  That’s all really silly sounding to me!  It is still being spent.  It is what it is! 

 

I wanted to keep our desination elopement to Canada around $5,000 (that’s everything wedding photographer, his ring, attire, lodging, food, gas, etc), but really we spent $7,000.  We did good still!

I never considered the honeymoon as part of the wedding budget.  I also never had a hard set wedding budget I tried to stick to though.
