Getting married soon? No worries! There is a long list of websites and apps which stretches onto infinity. These sites and apps will help you plan your wedding the right way.

Don’t be disheartened just yet. We know how much your honeymoon means to you too and so have come to you with 6 ways of planning an affordable honeymoon in Bangladesh.


What you need to do is decide where to go. Imagine this to be the nucleus of an atom on the basis of which your entire trip will be worked out. Do you want to wake up to the smell of freshly plucked tea leaves or want to visit the  ‘Venice of Bangladesh’ or stay under the shadows of one of the Seven Wonders of the World? Make your pick!


You must co-ordinate your wedding and honeymoon time really well. If you want to go on your honeymoon right after your wedding, then try getting married during the off-season. That way you’ll get the cheapest deals on hotels and also get to spend time alone in peace and tranquillity.


Transportation is crucial. If you want to save up on transportation so that you can stay in a posh hotel and have enough money to enjoy activities together, then try to look for offers online or simply take the train. There are websites which offer discounts when booking bus trips through them. Moreover, once you’re there, try avoiding taking rickshaws rather walk around. The amount might seem small at first but over time, you’ll be flabbergasted to find out that it will cost you more than your hotel tariff.


Sharing always helps it brings the cost down and makes it bearable. Now would be a good time to share the cost of the honeymoon together. This way you’ll notice multiple avenues of doing more things opening up along with the fact that no one will be going through financial stress.


Start a separate savings plan for your honeymoon. Start early and start small. Make it a goal for the both of you to add a minimum of Tk 200 in your honeymoon account every week. So, if you start a year prior to your wedding you should have a minimum of Tk 10400 each, which makes Tk 20800 in total. It is a reasonable amount to enjoy your entire honeymoon.


Try to look for deals. Sometimes, they put up discounts on using credit cards of a particular bank. Hotels often put up offers which largely reduce the tariff especially during off-seasons. Sometimes, you could use a few contacts to get deals on transports or hotels. Always keep your eyes open and keep asking people around, you never know when and where a good deal will pop out from.
