It doesn’t sound like you cancelled your wedding at all, just rearranged it!

A wedding is a wedding, no matter how big, how small, on a train or in the rain 😉

I know this wasn’t your original question, but had you considered hiring an officiant or having a friend officiate in your backyard, at your bbq, in front of your family and friends? Potluck that event and forget decorations and I think you’ve got yourself a backyard wedding.

Anyway, though, there are loads of different inexpensive trips. Where are you located?

I’m outside Chicago and Michigan has so many different beach spots (New Buffalo being my favorite) and the dunes are on the way up there. A stop at the beach for a day, then a stop at the casino, then antiquing/shoppin/eating in New Buffalo! Most perfecto, if you ask me!

I know that it sounds strange, but check groupon and ideeli!  They often have all inclusive resorts for about 500 for two people and they last up to a week.  All you have to go is get yourself there and pay for any excursions you want to do!

*Their 2 night is $499

Here’s 2 nights for $599 – http://www.theoverlookinn.com/north-georgia/specials/

(The Romantic Package)

 

And here’s a 1 night starting at $182 (Bed and Breakfast package)

Maybe stay somewhere like that and see the local sites? You might not think there is anything interesting there, but the city center will beg to differ! It might not be something you’ve “always wanted to do” but sometimes checking out what’s around is the best kind of adventure 🙂

I’m not sure where in GA you are, but Savannah is always nice. We went to St. Augustine, FL for a couple days and that was pretty nice and not too far.

Like PPs, I would agree with checking out some of the travel getaways on Groupon, LivingSocial, or Yuupon.

You could go on a cruise. If you go during the off season, there are some great deals! Plus, cruises leave out of Charleston, so you could drive to the port.

My stepmom suggested Savannah to us as well. She actually mentioned many places that she claimed were beautiful and so romantic, but I cannot remember the names of the places.

@impatientlypatient: Groupon is exactly what I was going to suggest, they have some great vacay deals!

How far are you from Chattanooga?  That’s always a fun place to visit. 

You could look on homeaway.com for a place to rent for a few days, maybe in the Georgia mountains? 

I don’t know what your budget is, but you could even try finding a B&B in a nearby town and stay. 

If it’s a super tight budget, maybe splurge on staying in a nicer hotel or B&B for a night and then have a stay at home honeymoon for the rest.  You could take a few days and buy lots of good food, watch movies, stay in PJ’s all day and have a “No Chores, No Phones, and No Computer” rule.

@s.renea9: What is your budget? We might be more helpful if we knew what “cheap” means for you. 🙂
