Honeymoon and Budgets

The honeymoon is a time for a newly married couple to escape from hectic life and simply enjoy each others company. When planning the honeymoon, several factors must be considered. For instance, the first thing is to determine your budget. Just remember that a great honeymoon getaway does not have to be expensive. While you can spend as much money as you want, you do not need to spend a fortune to have a great time and experience new things.

For starters, you can choose a honeymoon destination within your own country. Many times, people travel overseas and overlook the very things available at home. For example, you can choose from hundreds of beautiful, pristine beaches, magnificent mountains filled with evergreens and charming cabins, historical tours, national forests and parks, and much more. If you have a tight budget, this might be an excellent option for you.

To save for your honeymoon, you want to start putting money aside immediately after becoming engaged. Unfortunately, many couples will take out a loan for the honeymoon, which only starts them off in debt. Instead, think of things you can do to save. For instance, if you buy expensive coffee each morning, you might consider brewing coffee at home, putting the excess $3 aside for the honeymoon. If you go out to lunch each day, start packing your lunch, again putting $3 to $5 per day aside. You will be surprised just how quickly the money will add up and before long; you will be able to plan a more elaborate honeymoon than expected.

If you have your heart set on something exotic but simply find it hard to save enough to travel to the South Pacific, you can enjoy an exotic island in the United States. For this option, you can find some amazing houses that sit right on the beach off the coast of North Carolina, California, Miami, Alabama, or Georgia. In fact, quaint bed and breakfast inns dot the country, just waiting for visitors to enjoy.

Another great way to save money is to take your honeymoon during a time when prices are the lowest. Even if you are married during the summer months, which are the most popular and expensive, you can always delay your honeymoon for a few months as a way of saving tremendous money.

In this situation, you want to avoid taking your honeymoon anytime from June through the month of September since this is the peak vacation time for families, meaning hotels and other places can charge top prices. Additionally, if you want to go to a tropical destination, January through March would be bad times. In other words, base your honeymoon time with the type of honeymoon destination you want. This will help you avoid the peak times and high prices. If being married during the summer, you might even consider taking a few days to a local hotel or bed and breakfast immediately following the wedding and then schedule your longer honeymoon in October or November.
