Honeymoons on a Budget


While some couples may dream of traveling far, far away to an exotic island for their dream honeymoon, that just might not be possible in today’s economy. A lot of newlyweds-to-be are looking for cheap affordable honeymoons that will still provide them time to get away and enjoy each other without breaking their bank. Well here are some tips for shopping around for a five star honeymoon on a two star budget.

1.Stay in the U.S. If you are getting married in the United States, you might consider visiting on of the beautiful resorts that are located in Florida or maybe stay in a log cabin on a wild horse ranch in North Dakota. There are just so many great ideas here at home that you don’t have to take a cruise or splurge on a fancy resort in the Bahamas to get the relaxation that you need.

2.Consider traveling in the off-season. Even if that means you have to postpone your honeymoon for a month or two, you will be amazed at how much you will save if you are willing to wait. This is a great idea for couples that are determined to honeymoon in places like Mexico or the Bahamas. You can call the resort you are considering and ask them when their off-season is, so that you can plan to book your honeymoon around that time.

3.Have people donate to your honeymoon as a wedding gift! This a great idea for couples who want to go somewhere above their budget and it’s a creative and easy wedding gift for those who hate trying to figure out the registries at local department stores. If you use a travel agent, you might ask how your wedding guests can give a monetary gift that can go towards your honeymoon. They will probably be able to set you up with a toll-free number people can call or arrange for guests to come by their office to make the donation and pick up some kind of “receipt” they can place in a card to give you on your wedding day.

4.Shop the deals! You can search for your honeymoon last minute, which might save you some money, or you can travel during the week instead of over the weekend, which may save you on your flight. There are so many great deals out there if you are willing to put in the time and search for them.

5.Ask if anyone in your family has a timeshare they would be willing to let you use as a wedding gift. This is a popular option for many young couples and is actually a surprisingly common way of taking your honeymoon. Maybe your great aunt, grandparents, or even your parents have a timeshare, which gives them access to hundreds of resorts all over the world. Don’t be afraid to pipe up and see if they’d be willing to let you use it.

6.All-inclusive resorts are definitely the best way to get the most bang for your buck. For a set price you usually get your room and all your meals, which will save you considerably in the long run. Some all-inclusive resorts even include your alcohol! Just do some shopping around to see what kinds of deals and prices you are looking at for your honeymoon destination.

7.Don’t overlook a cruise which is a lot like an all-inclusive resort, only you get the luxury of visiting more than one destination and they are surprisingly affordable!

8.If you are your honey like the great outdoors, why not consider a camping honeymoon. Camping is an affordable way to get out and enjoy each other and a beautiful location. Just be warned that especially if you camp without a place to shower you are going to get to know each other a little better than maybe you want to for your first week of marriage. If that kind of stuff doesn’t bother you, than by all means, don’t be afraid to enjoy this cheap honeymoon option.
