Five Budget Friendly Honeymoon Ideas

Budget Honeymoon Ideas


As a massive travel fan, I always love getting down to the details of where newlyweds will be heading off on their honeymoons. This can be a massive expense though, so it’s great to know that there are loads of options for couples who want a gorgeous, romantic honeymoon to fit in with their wedding budget.

Here are five budget friendly honeymoon ideas to inspire you for your post wedding treat!

Morocco: If you want to feel like you have flown long haul and been transported to another world altogether, Morocco is a stunning choice. With super cheap flights available from the budget airlines and an incredible array of hotels to stay in, this is an exotic option if you are on a tight budget. I would highly recommend researching the riads to stay in, within the Medina in Marrakech for a touch of luxury and style for your honeymoon! You will also get to experience the mayhem of the medina before retreating to your riad haven tucked away in the labyrinth of dusty streets. I wrote about our experience in Morocco here and here  – we stayed at the Riad Camelia which was truly one of the most wonderful places I have ever stayed!

The Lake District: Quaint villages, beautiful lakes to picnic by and romantic bolt-holes to stay in – The Lake District is a brilliant destination for a budget honeymoon. It’s a lovely idea to go self-catering as the freedom to come and go as you please coupled with the option to either stay in and cook your own romantic dinners or head out to the local eateries makes for a wonderfully laid back vibe on your honeymoon. Have a look at Lake Lovers for lots of house rental ideas in The Lake District.

Turkey: If you want sun, sea and sand on a budget, Turkey remains a brilliant choice for honeymooners. The prices for all inclusive holidays remain low, even in peak season and you can get a lot of holiday for your money if what you are really after is a relax in the sun type break. The hospitality is fabulous and you will be able to eat and drink to your hearts content in lovely candle-lit restaurants lining the beach without busting your budget.

Iceland: This remains one of my most highly recommended options for a honeymoon with a difference. At just 3 hours flight from the UK, Iceland is certainly a ‘different’ destination for honeymooners. What appealed most to me was the variety of things to do – from floating in the Blue Lagoon to searching for the Northern Lights, this really feels like an adventure holiday and couldn’t be more romantic when you’re snuggled up warm in your hotel after a day exploring! Iceland Air  offer amazing packages from the UK, usually including an excursion on your break.

Cornwall: OK, so everyone knows that I am a little bit biased on this one – John and I go to Cornwall every single year in May, but I just can’t get enough of the place! Hire out a little cottage or luxurious apartment and enjoy romantic dinners in cute restauraunts, boat trips in the bracing sea air and wonderful walks along deserted beaches… What’s not to like? I always feel like I have arrived in a different country when you drive into Cornwall from Devon and I think it makes the perfect honeymoon destination if you want to keep the finances in check. Have a look at Holiday Cottages for some great self catering properties to browse through.
