The best thing about Married at First Sight is that you get to meet your ideal couple, selected for you by a panel of experts. But a close second could be getting a completely free wedding.
Sure, you can get weddings that tend to run together in a jumble of purple and white chiffon, but participants still get to get married for free and there’s (literally) no price to pay. What about honeymoons, though? Honeymoons are part of the journey in Married at First Sight, and if weddings are included in the production costs, then honeymoons must be too, right?
There are bachelor and bachelorette parties as well, so the potential costs for this show between five or more couples are pretty high.
Who Pays For The Honeymoons On ‘MAFS’?
The US version of Married at First Sight is similar to the UK version.
However, no one involved with the US version has come forward to say who pays for the honeymoon. Someone from the UK series has revealed some behind-the-scenes secrets. In an interview with Cosmopolitan U.K., season 2 actor Clark Sherwood admitted that the show helps pay for certain things, but not every detail. “There’s [a] budget for things — her wedding dress, a small budget for the suits,” he said. “There’s some money for hen-do and stag-dos, but it was mainly out of my pocket. I think they put money towards travel or something. But there was genuinely no monetary gain.” If the same is true for the US version, there is a good chance that the show will pay for at least part of the honeymoon.
