Indian weddings are meant to be extravagant. From decor to venue, to outfits and catering, you spend crazily during your weddings. Friends and relatives from all over the world come down for that special day of yours. But, is this how you really want to spend all the money you have saved up after years of hard work? On people who will come to your wedding to eat, and may even say a few mean things about your clothes and your caterer? Of course, not all relatives and friends are like that, but you will still be better off spending that amount of money on an experience of a lifetime. So, if you were already thinking of ditching the stereotypical ceremonies, then we suggest you to go ahead and splurge the money on your honeymoon! Instead you can go for a small wedding, where you invite only your direct family members and a couple of closest friends. And after the wedding, pick up both of your packed bags and go for an adventure worth remembering!
Well, all of this may sound unconventionali, and you might not be having second thoughts. So, here are ten reasons that will convince you to spend more on your honeymoon and less on your wedding.
Psychologists suggest that spending money on experiences rather than materials has a rather satisfying effect. This means, the headache of spending money on a lavish wedding can absolutely be avoided.
Forget about dressing up in a 10 kg outfit and smiling at people throughout the evening. Instead, you can go for a Europe trip, wear all your pretty summer dresses and sip on some delicious wine. At the end of it all, travelling will be more enriching than a heavy saree that will be eventually sitting in your closet eating dust.
Instead of spending time on ceremonies with relatives you have never met before, you will spend each precious minute of your married life in mesmerising locations with your partner.
Instead of spending the money on food for 200 people, you can go anywhere in the world and taste their local cuisine. This can be a gastronomically adventurous honeymoon in it's true sense.
Spending quality time with your loved one will strengthen the core of your marriage, which is why starting your marriage with an extravagant honeymoon is the best idea. You can live in a country for a few months or go backpacking all over the world.
You will not be tired and battered after days full of constant rituals; instead, you will be rejuvenated after the relaxing honeymoon and ready for a fresh start.
Your entire house will be filled with mementos from all over the world, instead of generic wedding presents. Because let us face it, a majority of the guests, who have never met you will end up giving you a bunch of coffee sets, bedsheets or dinnerware!
Whenever someone asks you, “Why didn’t you invite me for you wedding?” just tell them it was a very small and intimate wedding!
Your marriage will begin with an amazing trip that you always dreamt of. This will be a much-needed break from the hectic life you lead.
You will never regret having spent this money with your beloved and doing things that genuinely make you two happy.
There is no better way to spend money than on exciting things that you two can do together. Honeymoon is all about making memories. Taking your partner for a once in a lifetime adventure is the best present ever.
