You’ve been stressed for months planning the wedding. The honeymoon is the time to recharge and celebrate with your new spouse. Unfortunately, most of your funds have been used for the wedding and you’re not sure you can pull off a trip with limited funds. The good news is traveling doesn’t have to be expensive. Here are some suggestions on how to plan an amazing honeymoon on a small budget.
Create a Budget
So you don’t go overboard it’s important to start with a budget. You may dream of traveling to a tropical oasis but can your budget support that. By creating your budget first and choosing a destination second, you don’t get your hopes or funds wrapped up into something you can’t truly afford.
After paying for your wedding and your regular expenses, how much money do you have leftover to dedicate to your honeymoon? If it’s very little you can give it a boost by filling out a cash advance application online. You could get a few hundred bucks to fund your honeymoon and repay the loan in small installments each month.
Ask Friends and Family
Instead of asking for household items and other gifts on your wedding registry you could ask your friends and family to pitch in for your honeymoon. Honeymoon registries are actually very popular these days. Essentially, you create a website which lets your guests know where you’re trying to go, what you want to do while you’re there, and how much it’s going to cost. Depending on how many people contribute, your entire honeymoon could be paid for.
Take Advantage of All Deals
You should plan your honeymoon just as you would plan any other vacation. There are lots of deals that you could be taking advantage of. Use the internet to find out about honeymoon packages, cruise deals, discounted flights, hotel stays, car rentals, and activities. Lots of resorts also have romantic packages for couples that you can get for a steal. These all-inclusive packages could save you hundreds of dollars on food, drinks, and entertainment.
You may have hoped to travel to a tropical island or shop the streets of Paris, but if your budget doesn’t accommodate those dreams, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a honeymoon. You could stay nearby. Choose a neighboring city or state that you’ve always wanted to visit and plan your honeymoon there. No matter where you travel to there is bound to be something you guys can enjoy together. Whether it’s walking along a boardwalk, visiting museums, dining at restaurants, or taking in the additional services at a luxury hotel, as long as you’re together, you can make your honeymoon special.
When you’re thousands of dollars in the hole on your wedding, finding the means to plan a honeymoon may seem impossible. Fortunately, your limited budget doesn’t have to mean that you can’t get away for a few days. You simply have to set a budget, learn how to look for deals, and use other resources like your friends and family to help fund the perfect getaway.
