Would any of you spend more on your wedding, or would you spend more on your honeymoon? I know some put more into a wedding than their honeymoon, and vice versa. I know friends are at your wedding, and some say you should spend more in that area. Call me a little selfish, but I think I would want to spend more on my honeymoon than my wedding. What are your thoughts, would you spend more on your wedding, or honeymoon?

Bonus question: Where would you like to take your honeymoon, and why?

Since it's slow on here tonight, I decided to pull out one of my old blog's that's dated back to Feb, 2007 which had a lot of participation on. Enjoy!

As a vendor I hope they decide to spend more on the wedding and usually they do.

I think in reality unless you do the courthouse thing a wedding is going to cost more than the honeymoon unless you are planning quite a trip. Location, flowers, food, music. It all adds up fast.

As I recall I spent more on the divorce than both combined.

OMG...that ^^^ is so sad but completely true a lot of the time.

After living through a wedding ceremony with all the perks...if I ever had to do it again...I would probably just go to the courthouse...or get married by someone at home in a low-key celebration. That way I could save some money... and then fly to Europe for a couple of weeks.

Seriously, I have known people that could afford a lavish wedding and extravagant honeymoon. But after one crash and burn marriage, while I have known quite a few to drop some bucks on a honeymoon vacation for marriage number two, three, four, five...I have never known anyone to shell out a lot for the wedding.

Hey straddle, I understand that for the sake of gender equality they are now making a new male deck of cards for playing Old Maid and your picture is on the back of them (JK)

I've only had one wedding and we spent very little for a small church wedding with just close family and friends. Honeymoon, we went camping (in a tent) at a lake for a week........ lol
IF I were to ever do it again, I would want our families and at least close friends there. I can't imagine I would spend much on either...again.
But this time I would like a luxurious honeymoon somewhere with a beach and a hot tub.........

So I guess more on the honeymoon.

Colors? Other than the green to pay for it.

Well, it's like this, Bruce. No woman has been able to rope me in just YET! Being a bachelor hasn't been too bad all these years. I have always cheerished my freedom and privacy all these years.

So much of the answer depends upon budget as well as any expectations the couple may have. I prefer a small, intimate gathering with family and close friends with a casual party afterward. Due to work schedule we had a weekend honeymoon. For our first anniversary had a fantastic two weeks in Hawaii.

Actually, I would want to spend more on the honeymoon. I'm not into all of the frills and whatever attached to weddings. I don't need to pay thousands of dollars on a dress I'm going to wear once. Give my about $100, some material, the pattern, and I know someone who will put it together for $75. So...in total, I could have a wedding dress made for roughly $200, and it will look like one that some brides pay thousands on. Since I'm not a church going person, and I'm not hypocrite, I wouldn't want a church wedding, I'd like an outdoors wedding.

I'd save my money up for a nice honeymoon, preferably in Ireland (I've always had a wish to go there), but, if not Ireland, then I'd head towards Wyoming or Colorado...where I can see the Rocky Mountains, and watch the sun rise and sunset.

Actually, I need to correct myself. There is one person I know that did that for wedding number two after being divorced for around twenty years. Coincidently, it is the person that is the subject of my blog today. That one was held at a special section of Fort Worth's gorgeous Botanical Garden in a special area of the rose garden that can be rented for a princely sum for just such an occasion. It was lavish and very overdone. She planned it, paid for it and the marriage lasted about eight months She didn't do that for number three and that marriage lasted 13 years.

I guess more often than not, it isn't happily ever after but happily for a while

Once somebody is divorced, the significance of pomp and circumstances in a future wedding usually not only evaporates, but is avoided.

I'd spend a dollar on each one & spend the rest on the many rug rats she is going to hatch.
