If money is tight you may want to ask your guests to contribute to part of your wedding day. So grouping together to pay for the photographer or the wedding cake makes guests feel they are giving you a helpful and personal gift. It’s also something you can share with them afterwards.

Honeymoon Fund

If you are having a destination wedding this could be the choice for you. Asking your guest to contribute to your honeymoon might mean you keep the party going longer. It’s a great option for wedding gift lists as people can get involved and feel part of your continuing journey.

Another option is to ask for specific parts of the honeymoon, say if you want to swim with dolphins then asking for particular parts make it more personal to you and your guests.
