Budget Honeymoon Ideas

Unless you have a rich relative who’s willing to send you on a honeymoon cruise, a lavish honeymoon is probably out of the realm of possibility. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a nice getaway after your wedding.

Here are a few budget honeymoon ideas:

Consider local travel. Stay at a bed and breakfast. What about a theme park honeymoon? Some couples relish the idea of camping. Rent and RV and get to an RV park for a secluded honeymoon where you can enjoy each other exclusively.

Plan well in advance. If you can get away for your honeymoon, be sure to plan early. The earlier you book your trip, the better chance you have of getting a good rate. Consider an all-inclusive vacation or a cruise. These can be relatively low-cost and immensely enjoyable!

Don’t be afraid to ask for freebies. Everyone loves newlyweds, so take advantage of this nearly universal sentimentality by asking for discounts or freebies. If you tell your waiter that you're on your honeymoon, you may get a free dessert or bottle of wine, tell the check in clerk at the airport that you are on your honeymoon, and assk the hotel receptionist where you're staying for any free upgrades, as well.

Ask for your wedding guests to contribute towards your honeymoon as a wedding gift. This is becoming very popular now and there are lots of websites dedicated to creating a honeymoon gift list where wedding guests can contribute towards your honeymoon.

Hopefully these budget honeymoon ideas will help you discover new ways to enjoy a great honeymoon at a lower price.
