    Good Morning! Recently, I had to spend an agonising 3 months of my life in planning my honeymoon break! Following my ordeal, I have put together a guide on how to save money on a honeymoon (all based on my experience and independent research). I would like to contribute this guide to your blog to enlighten your readers a little. I have saved the article inside my google drive: I am very sorry but I did not have the time to find many images (I included a couple only) so I would be grateful if you could add some of your own. It would be fab if you could ping me the url of the published post as I would like to show off a little in front of my Facebook friends! Have a great day! Cheers! Tony
