My FI and I are paying for our wedding ourselves so 100% of our budget will go towards the wedding and lodging 50% of our guests, while 0% will go towards a honeymoon. With that said, we might take a few days off and do it at home too. I know it will be hard for me to stay home and not want to do errands, but I never get a chance to see the sites around my area so it would be nice to play tourist. 🙂

That sounds like a great idea, there is so much to do in and around Boston, I’m sure you won’t be bored. We didn’t consider this option but it can be so relaxing to stay home and have no commitments to work, etc. Enjoy!

However, if you are still considering camping I could suggest caming in NH’s white mountain region where there are many state owned campgrounds that are really cheap to rent per night or week.  There are lots of great hikes nearby as well as several cute towns. You could prob. do this without spending more money than dinners out in Boston.

We did about 4 days away and 3 nights at home.  It was so much fun to be home because we got to put away all our gifts, enjoy each other, etc! 

Also, you will probably have a ton of fresh flowers left over from the wedding!!  My bouquet lasted way past the honeymoon!

I think we might end up just taking time off, but staying in the Boston area too..the way things are going ($)

Is your car fixed? I’d still get out of town. Camping is cheaper than going out to dinner a couple of times and it will get you away from the things that have to be done around the house.

I would love a minimoon at home! Just tell everyone you’re still going away though so no one bothers you. I can imagine MIL calling every day otherwise………………….

We’re not staying home but we’re going into the city which is about an hour away from home, so nothing too exotic. We’re planning on checking into a nice room, sitting about in our pyjamas all day and watching a heckload of documentaries on pay tv (which we don’t have at home). Very low key. Heaps of people kinda look at me like I’m nuts when I tell them where we’re going and what we’re doing… or lack there of, but whatevs, the fella and I just want time to hang out and do nothing together! You don’t have to be on a beach drinking cocktails or swanning about Europe to have a fantastic honeymoon!

I think you can have a blast with your at-home honeymoon! It’s all about the 2 of you, no matter where you are 🙂

I think a relaxing honeymoon at home sounds nice.  My suggestion would be to stock up on paper plates, cups etc. for your less fancy meals (less dishes).  Have you thought about doing a beach day in Gloucester?  You could go to Good Harbor or Wingaersheek.

I’m in the home moon boat.  Expensive student loans to pay off and paying for the wedding.  So we may plan a big trip to St. Lucia in a few years before we start trying to make babies.  Def need a good trip as a coulple before the rug rats come along : )
