8 Honeymoon Destinations For Every Budget

title picture

Deciding on a honeymoon destination isn't always easy. There are many choices so narrowing it down can be a bit difficult and downright overwhelming. I have compiled a list of popular destinations that many engaged couples consider because of the sheer romance about these locations.

But as with everything related to wedding planning, one of the biggest considerations is budget. So to help guide you in selecting your honeymoon destination, I have included approximate costs for a week-long honeymoon. But this isn't the only thing to keep in mind. You will also want to take a look at how much time you can take off work and dedicate to your romantic getaway. If you will be traveling a significant distance, I recommend at least 10-12 days if not more because you will lose some days traveling. So for those distant places like Bora Bora, Maldives, and even Europe, make sure you can allot extra time to really enjoy your honeymoon.

Depending on these two factors, you can start narrowing down where you want to spend your time connecting with your soon to be spouse.
