The Thing 65% Of Couples Are Forgetting To Include In Their Wedding Budgets

September 29, 2015  |  

Depending on the type ceremony you desire, wedding planning can be a time-consuming process that requires couples to be highly organized. With so many factors to take into consideration, even the most coordinated of couples may not realize until mid-planning that they’ve allowed one thing or another to fall through the cracks.

A recent survey conducted by The Knot in conjunction with PayPal revealed that 65 percent of couples are failing to factor the honeymoon into their wedding budgets. Of course, this is completely understandable. When tasks as large as securing a venue and nailing down a guest list are in front of you, it’s pretty easy to forget about the real celebrating that will likely go down when you and Bae finally have some alone time after months of stressful wedding planning.

The survey also revealed following about how couples are tackling wedding-related expenses:

• 36% of couples paid with credit cards
• 16% of couples borrowed money from a friend or family member
• 17% of couples will borrow money to help finance their wedding
• 57% of couples borrow money from a credit card or financial institution to finance their wedding

What are some of the things that you forget to factor into your wedding budget? Are there any money-saving tricks and tips that you picked up along the way?
