Honeymoon, the next best thing to getting married: A honeymoon is of extreme importance. The end of the wedding also brings to an end the many months, even years, of fantastic planning and stress-laden activity.

Low-end budget ideas:

For these low-budget honeymoon ideas, we are not suggesting any specific location ordestination. Couples can decide and choose the one that they unanimously agree upon as the most convenient place where they can fulfill and carry out these suggested ideas.

  • Staycation:Just because it is your honeymoon, it does not mean that you need to travel somewhere. In fact the very tradition of going on a vacation to celebrate one's honeymoon is a relatively new concept. Around a couple of centuries ago, a honeymoon was all about spending time together at home for a period of a month or so in order to know each other betteralbeit physically. Just imagine, a month of bliss away from your work, disconnected from the external world with your prime focus being on doing projects together with your better half. While your family and friends will not have pictures of grand locations to mystify themselves,they'll nevertheless be jealous of the way you managed to stay away from the rat race altogether
  • Island getaway:It is common to find people overspending on their honeymoon vacations to the Tahiti and Hawaiian islands. It is not necessary that a vacation in one of these places needsto be expensive. If you are travelling on a Best Western budget, you need not book your accommodation at a five-star facility. In fact it is the island atmosphere you wish to spend your time in and not a claustrophobic hotel room! Book your travels on a cheap air carrier and choose to sleep either in your car or on the beach. What really matters in these occasions is the amazing view that makes you feel like you are in paradise.
  • Fancy resort:Check into an expensive retreat, spa or resort facility in your hometown. While you may feel this is an expensive proposition, consider the huge amount you get to save on various travel costs, most notably your air fares. With that extra cash at your disposal, receiving a royal treatment within the limits of your own city now becomes largely affordable. Moreover, if it is a honeymoon package that you wish to book, you will be offered a lot of extra attention and free amenities. In order to lead a good life, flying halfway around the world is not always necessary.
  • Themed retreats:Numerous destinations all over the world offer weeklong retreats where, as a couple, you can completely immerse yourself into a hobby for which you share a common passion. Embark on a treasure hunt, backpacking adventure, ranch or vineyard, meditation retreat or anything that suits your fancy.
