5 Affordable Honeymoon Options

Weddings can get pricey! If you’re wondering how you’re going to afford your dream honeymoon after paying for your dream wedding, this post is for you. We’ve compiled our top five favorite honeymoon ideas that won’t break the bank.


Cruises are the perfect option for a couple looking to save on their honeymoon, yet have an exciting, romantic getaway. What makes cruises so cost-efficient is that they are all-inclusive. Enjoy fun onboard activities, a gorgeous room, swimming pools, all the food you can eat, travel destinations, and more! 

The only other expenses you’d be paying for other than the cruise tickets, are what it costs you to get to the port. Most couples take a plane, but if you’re low on cash, just drive. This not only saves you time, but it also provides you quality talking time to start your vacation. 

Go Camping 

This isn’t for everyone, but if you and your partner enjoy the outdoors, consider camping in a scenic place or even a national park. If you don’t own any of the things needed, you can rent a tent and camping equipment for this fun adventure. 

You and your partner can enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, and swimming. Enjoy cooking your fresh-caught fish over the warm, crackling fire in the moonlight with your love. 

Rent an RV

Are you and your partner travelers? You can save on expensive hotels and mobilize your stay by renting an RV. This will provide you a stay on wheels, so you can go anywhere within driving distance. You love the beach but also want to go snowboarding? Simply have a beach day then drive to the nearest snow resort. This gives you endless options for activities and dining! 

Stay at Home

The point of a honeymoon is to spend time alone with your new spouse. This can be accomplished right in your own home. Take the week off work, splurge on groceries to cook luxury meals every night or order your favorite takeout, don’t allow any visitors. Create a romantic “getaway” from normal life in the comfort of your own home. In order to keep this from feeling like normal life, create a schedule of what you will do each day. Maybe you take day trips for a couple of days, maybe you go to a fancy restaurant a few times. 

Another super fun way to spice up your “Stay-at-Home” honeymoon is to purchase a “date ideas” kit. These can come in a book form, where you scratch off the cover to find your date for the day, or maybe a jar of date ideas where you draw one randomly each day. 

Personalize this to you and your spouse’s interests and hobbies, have fun!

Book a Retreat

Do you and your partner have a mutual hobby? Spend your honeymoon doing something you love together. Not only will you get an all-inclusive stay, but you’ll also get to spend one-on-one time away from the noise of everyday life in an atmosphere that you both love. Maybe you’re both passionate about snowboarding, book an all-inclusive snowboarding retreat for a weekend or a full week! 

This is a great way to spend quality time together and enjoy your mutually favorite things!
