What to do with all that wedding cash…

Monday, April 20th, 2009

bridegroommoney1Cold hard cash is still one of the most popular gifts to give for weddings. And what’s not to like. Cash gives the couple many options and provides a sense of comfort for newlyweds just starting out.

Now assuming you aren’t getting married in Las Vegas, you’ll have a big pile of cash the day after the wedding and you’ll be faced with a question: “What should we do with it?” There are two obvious options: bank it or spend it.

Option 1: Bank It

If you’re conservative, this presents a great opportunity to start a joint savings account or another type of investment. The money could go towards start retirement fund, buying stock, or saving for a down payment on a house. There’s really no going wrong when you’re saving for the future.

Option 2: Spend it

An equal number of other couples will put their wedding cash towards the honeymoon. This is not a bad idea as it allows you to save the cash you would otherwise be spending on dinners, drinks, excursions on your honeymoon. The cash you rake in can also go towards buying gifts that were not purchased off of your wedding registry. Recommendation:  We think the safest bet is doing a little of both. Let’s say you get $2,000 in cash gifts. Why not put half of it in the bank (or other investment) and use the other half as “mad money” for the honeymoon. This gives you the comfort of knowing you’re saving, but also allows you to kick back and enjoy a few extra mojitos on the honeymoon.

Groom’s Guide to Keeping the Honeymoon Cheap

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

palmPlanning a wedding in this economy can be downright scary. However, most couples say that they’re ignoring the temptation to postpone the wedding and rather scaling back costs. There are definitely ways to bring wedding costs down to meet your budget.  And believe it or not, making the honeymoon a little more affordable is very possible.

The honeymoon is one of the bigger drains on the wedding budget. The trip is traditionally paid for by the groom – however today couples often share the cost. Here are a few quick tips that may be helpful in your planning:
Consider a cruise
It may come as a surprise, but cruises are traditionally much cheaper than doing a resort. You want to remember that food is normally included in the trip cost. If you’re not big drinkers – you won’t be racking up a huge bar tab and your only other expenses will be souvenirs and on-shore excursions.

Keep the trip shorter
Depending on where you’re planning to go planning a weekend honeymoon rather than a full week can make the trip much more affordable. It’s not ideal, but it sure beats canceling the trip altogether.

Road trip
Consider doing a road trip honeymoon in the states rather than leaving the country. Gas prices have fallen significantly and if you use a trip planning website you can find cheap hotels along the way. Use the same website to find cheap lodging at your destination. One of the most popular trending honeymoon destinations are mountain areas. These spots are ideal for travel by car.

Do a short trip now and a long one later
Another alternative is doing a short weekend or one-night trip immediately after the wedding and then waiting until there is enough money to do an all-out trip.
