Tis the summer season. I thought it was the perfect time to share some honeymoon inspiration with you especially if you are planning a honeymoon in a sunshine destination! There are ways you can reduce the cost of your honeymoon and get your hands on some chic items by thinking outside of the box with your wedding gifts.
Being strategic with your gift list is smart – Ditch the ickiness. I give you FULL permission to ask for what you want. I promise you will be surprised by the generosity from friends and family during nuptials. For those who can and are able, they want nothing MORE to be able to buy you something or contribute towards something to celebrate your union. So, if you haven’t thought of getting a gift list, now’s the time to reconsider so you end up with things you want and need or can’t afford, rather than things you end up re-gifting or putting to the back of your cupboard. (AHEM), it’s also a modern and slightly more elegant alternative to asking for money stuffed in a card.
Using your wedding gift list to get those desired honeymoon items off of your wish-list and into your suitcase is a great and novel idea to help you rack up those honeymoon memories in style.

To inspire you, I teamed up with Nu Bride favourites Prezola, aptly named the UK’s favourite gift list.
