Why is it that he doesn’t want to go camping?  Have you explained how much you want this?

I don’t think you sound like a whiny brat! That is a total bummer. Could you save up to do something for your 1 year anniversary?

Do you not have any budget for honeymoon at all?  If you have something, we might be able to make suggestions.  Have you thought about having a honeymoon registry rather than the traditional one?  Or if you get any money at the wedding, using that toward a honeymoon a little later?

$1000 will get you some where. A local area, a few nights in the city, local beach, camping, bed and breakfast weekend. Even a nice night in a luxury hotel, dinner and a spa treatment.

Are there any cheap places where you could “camp” in a cabin or something similar? Maybe he would be up for it if tents weren’t involved?

@babybird125:  Do you or Fiance know of anyone that has a holiday home or something you could borrow/rent cheaply?

What about a local honeymoon? Or a road-trip where you just see where you end up. a 1000 dollars sounds to me like a good amount to go for a short break.

First- Im a bride for the second time, 38, was married for 13 years without a honeymoon bc I was student teaching. I would ask your Fiance to commit to taking a ONE-Year Honeymoon. This gives you a year to plan and arrange your lives so that you can celebrate the first year together. I know  aton of brides who, because of all the stress of the wedding, slept a ridiculous part of their honeymoon away to recover. Save your money and plan a one year honeymoon 🙂

Have you thought of going on a cruise, you can drive to Florida.  I found this 4-Night Bahamas  Cruise from Port Canaveral to Port Canaveral for 230$ each.  http://www.expedia.com  there was also a 7 night cruise for 499$ each.

What about just a weekend trip somewhere within driving distance? You could stay in a nicer hotel, have dinner and maybe a couples massage or something for $1000.

I know you said it’s a bit out of the question, but I would try to save up $200 and look for a local deal on a bed and breakfast. Living Social usually has really great deals on them! DH and I took two days away after the wedding and just went to a B&B one state away, and it was definitely lovely and worth it.

Were you saying you have $1000 for the wedding or for the honeymoon?

Sorry to hear this, esp since its so important to you. Maybe you can “delay” the honeymoon to later in the year after you save up some more $$? We didnt go on our honeymoon for other reasons but plan to do so later in the year. Something to consider, that way you still get to go even if its not exactly right after the wedding?

Where are you in GA? I grew up in GA and might be able to suggest something near you that would be really inexpensive. (You can PM me if you’d rather not announce your location).

I second the cruise idea.  You can drive to Florida & take a cruise for $1000.  All your food is included, so it makes things easier on the budget.  I’ve seen 7 day cruises for $399.  Carnival is usually the cheapest.  Bahama cruises are usually pretty cheap too… a lot of them are under $300 per person.

ETA: Looking at Carnival’s site now & there’s a 3 day cruise for $299 leaving from Port Canaveral (Orlando) on Aug 2nd & there’s a 4 day for $379 per person leaving on Aug 5th from the same port.
