Not only are happy couples-to-be looking to their guests for cash to fund the wedding celebration, they’re now asking for help with the honeymoon, too!
More couples are flocking to websites like HoneyFund, GoFundMe, and Honeymoon Wishes to make it easier for their family, friends and “plus ones” to donate cash to pay for that overpriced trip to Europe or the Bahamas.
Some of those sites charge a fee of 10% of the money collected, but who cares when it’s another person’s money!
Nicole DePinto told Global News HERE that she “didn’t feel right saying, ‘Hey, give me cash.'”
She and her hubby raised $2,900 via GoFundMe for their trip to the sandy beaches in… Iceland?
HoneyFund raised $90 million last year. Their business is doing alright.
The Knot’s deputy editor Kristen Maxwell reminds us that soliciting for a cash gift for a wedding is a faux pas.
If that’s the case, why are so many young couples flocking to this new model of fundraising? Is it appropriate to crowdfund for your wedding or honeymoon? And is a honeymoon a vital part of tying the knot?
