Ever notice how so many go to Cabo for their honeymoon? Or Jamaica? That kind of honeymoon isn't in everyone's budget. Even so, couples on a really tight budget can still have a romantic affordable honeymoon. Using, I found 3 great honeymoon ideas for couples on a small budget.

Go Cross Country:

Why not have a road-trip honeymoon? There are so many great things to see in this country. I once took a 3-week trip and visited over 13 states on our west-coast and had a blast. Several notable places I visited were Las Vegas, Yosimite National Park, and the Hoover Dam. Granted I was traveling in a motor home so I didn't have the cost of motels and I was traveling with a friend and her family and I was 13, but hey you can still do it. Taking a car and cooler (back food and drinks in the cooler, to be refilled as you go along) and stopping at random small-town motels (no need in spending over $100 a night at the Hilton) and you could spend only $100 a day for you honeymoon.


If driving all day long isn't your thing, what about camping? When I say camping, I don't necessarily mean roughing it with only a sleeping bag and bug spray, unless you are into that kind of thing. You could simply purchase a tent (approximately $50 depending on the size) and go to a local campground or to your state park and spend the weekend. Tent = $50, Queen size air mattress = $20, food for the camp grill for the weekend $60, Spending time alone in a small tent with your new husband = priceless. On a side note, most if not all campgrounds have showers.

At Home:

Now if you really don't have the money to go anywhere, even for the weekend, you can still have a romantic honeymoon. Just have it at home. The following are great ideas for having a romantic honeymoon at home:

1. Relive you first date. I think this would be a great way to start off your honeymoon.
2. Have breakfast in bed. One of the most romantic things can be as simple as breakfast in bed.
3. Exchange Love Coupons. These coupons are great and extremely inexpensive (an entire book for less than $5).
4. Cook together. This is a great way to spend time together, especially if one or both of you don't normally cook.
5. Take a bath together. If you have a bath tub big enough, that is.

I hope these examples show that with enough research and with keeping your interests in mind, having a memorable and romantic honeymoon doesn't have to cost $500 or more. Sticking to the basics and simply enjoying the time you have together can make any event one that you will never forget.
