If the two of you don’t have much left to spend after the wedding itself, you may want to take a honeymoon that helps to save a bit of cash. Fortunately, there are a number of different options if you’re on a budget during your special trip together. Here are ten to consider.
1. Consider a Cruise:
While many think cruises to be the ultimate in luxury, the simple reality is that they’re pretty affordable. You can find cruise packages for less than you think if you shop around. Look into a cruise that isn’t quite as popular as many other options, and ask about special discount rates.
2. All Inclusive Resorts:
Again, these often seem expensive at the outset, but you can get some great packages that include absolutely everything you’ll need while you’re there, which can really cut down on the overall costs. Look for something in a destination that you’ll both enjoy, and make sure the resort has plenty for the two of you to do and see together.
3. Stay Local:
You don’t have to go far to have a good time. If you have a sister city within a few miles, consider booking a hotel room there, and see the sites as a tourist might. It could open your eyes to things around you. Log on to your state’s tourism website to see a list of places you may never have visited within a few miles of your home.
4. Change The Dates:
It’s always cheaper to travel in the off-season, and there are no rules that say a honeymoon has to take place right after the wedding. Postpone it for a few weeks (or months) if it’s going to be cheaper to do so, then take the trip of your dreams. It will give you a bit of time to save some extra cash, too.
5. Go Within Driving Distance:
If you don’t want to stay local but you feel like you can’t afford to go far, look within a two to three hour radius of where you are. What’s nearby? If you’re close to your state’s capital, you could book a quick weekend trip out there for fun. Near a major city? Consider a short excursion that way. If you’re not near any one particular place, but several little places, remember that you don’t have to stay in one location. Hop from town to town to see the interesting sites in each.
