More than 2 million people get married in the US every year, with a national average cost of $29,858. It’s even more expensive New York City, where the average triples in cost! The price tag is definitely a bit terrifying but luckily, I managed to get mine less than half the national average by keeping an open mind and approaching the concept a bit differently.
You can drive two hours north of New York City and be transported to Woodstock, a small town in upstate New York, far from the cacophony of city life. My husband and I spent a few days here, exploring this town of towering trees, occasional crossing deers, quirky shops and beautiful landscape.
I had the luxury of spending nine days in Mexico for a honeymoon and happy to have picked Excellence Playa Mujeres—an adults-only all-inclusive resort, where my husband and I sat, relaxed, and enjoyed a friendly laid back atmosphere made perfect for honeymooners.
