Your wedding ceremony has finally ended. And, so has the reception. After many months of planning your spectacular affair, the special day has been executed successfully. And, now it’s time to enjoy one of the affordable honeymoon destinations you chose for your private nuptial celebration.
The Bride’s Journey to Her Honeymoon Destination
By a stroke of luck, you finally fit into that wedding dress that you worked so hard to get into for months. (Sigh of relief!) You got all dolled up and marched down the aisle to the love of your life, where you both exchanged “I do’s,” then got lost in that deep, enchanting kiss, at the request of the minister or officiant.
Afterwards, you proceeded to your reception where you had great food, a beautiful, customized wedding cake, fabulous entertainment and joined your guests in doing the Cha Cha, electric slide, the Hustle or whatever gets you groovy. At the end, you and your new spouse finally thanked your guests for the love and support shown to you and bid them farewell.
The wedding day is officially over. It’s now time to go home… because you cannot afford the honeymoon of your dreams. Right?
Wrong! You still head to your honeymoon because you were lucky enough to find affordable honeymoon destinations to choose from!!!
