For most newlyweds their honeymoon is almost as anticipated as the big day. But couples on a budget may be struggling for ideas. There’s no need to worry, there are plenty of alternatives to a honeymoon that won’t break the bank. This means you can spend more on the main event, while still having something to look forward to once it’s all over.
Attend an Event in Style
If there’s something you love to do as a couple, like watching sport or listening to music, why not attend a concert or a match with luxury tickets? Events like the Open Golf Championships are good fun and have a relaxed atmosphere. If you want to make your day really special the Open Golf Championship hospitality provides a luxury three course meal and first class travel. You’ll be well looked after with drinks and refreshments throughout the day. If you choose to go to a concert or sports match you could book a luxury box to make sure you have the best view.
You don’t have to go abroad to have an amazing honeymoon. Why not book a local weekend away or visit somewhere new in your city. Last minute deals can usually be found online a few days before. Taking the time to explore somewhere as a couple is just as enjoyable at home as it is abroad. If you love the outdoors you could even go for a camping trip, low cost but just as fun! If your budget is really tight, try making your home a holiday destination. Decorate with romantic candles and cook your favourite meal together. Good food and good company is all you need.
A Day Out
Have an amazing day out together as a couple. You can really go all out as the cost of one day won’t come anywhere near the price of a week away. This can be really personal as it will reflect what you both love to do. Try these suggestions if you’re stuck- a hot air balloon ride, going to a theme park or visiting a new city and going for a fancy meal.
Learn Something New
Sign up for a class and learn a new skill together. Whether it’s cooking, yoga or perhaps something artistic, doing something different is a fun way to start your new life as a couple. It doesn’t have to be a one off occasion, why not book several classes throughout the year so you have something to look forward to?
Tick Something off Your Bucket List
If you haven’t already, make a joint bucket list and then pick something to do from it. Completing a lifetime goal can be expensive, especially if you want to go for something extreme like a sky dive. But if you choose the right goal, you can still keep the costs much lower than a week away for a honeymoon would cost. Plus, who can put a price on making a memory that will last you a lifetime?
