Cut costs on one of the most expensive parts of a couple's celebration with these tips...
Tip #1: put it on your gift-list!
Now that – gasp – most couples live together before getting married, the gift list is becoming less popular and one of the more popular choices is the honeymoon fund – there are many companies which offer this service. There are also some companies that offer the chance to buy the couple an experience, so guests are not paying for the actual honeymoon, but they can splash out on a hot air balloon ride, a scuba dive or a round of cocktails.

So instead of Barbados, head for St Kitts and Nevis, or instead of Tuscany, look into Puglia.
