Honeymoon tips for your second marriage


Weddings are expensive events to host, and as you are doing this for the second time, you probably know this all too well! Everything is so expensive these days, from the flowers, to the décor, to the dress, and the food. And then when it comes to the honeymoon there are even more expenses to come! Since you are getting married for the second time, you probably want to dial back the extravagance of the honeymoon in any case. And in this economic climate, it is probably prudent to do so. Here are some helpful tips to ensure you have the best honeymoon for the least amount of money!

Think local

While everyone ideally would like to jet-set off to some exotic location; that is not always within the budget. Consider instead, a romantic honeymoon getaway that is local, and more budget-friendly. Think of exciting activities you and your spouse can do locally. A romantic hot air balloon ride or shark-cage diving if you are near the coast and daring enough! Book a hotel room in a town nearby, so it still feels like you are going away. While you are away, enjoy some downtime in your hotel suite watching funny movies together or playing some fun games at the Royal Vegas online casino.

Take advantage of special offers

If you can avoid it, there is no reason why you should have to pay full-price for certain things! Take advantage of sites like Groupon that post special offers for everything from accommodation to spa services that you may want to utilize. Ask hotels if you can get a discount because you are getting married. Some may say no, but it never hurts to ask! The same goes for airplane flights; first class tickets are very expensive and not within most people’s budgets. When you and your spouse check in at the airport, let them know you are on your way to your honeymoon and would appreciate a free upgrade if the airline would allow.

Go in low season

If you do want to go overseas, try planning to go during low season when the tourist trade is not so busy. While you may not be visiting your preferred destination during the best weather it has to offer, it will make your entire trip heaps less expensive. During low season, everything from plane tickets, hotel prices and the cost of food is significantly lower. If you and your new spouse are going to be spending a lot of quality time in your hotel as newlyweds, going in low season will mean that you can afford a much nicer hotel and suite.

Honeymoon fund

Since both of you probably have all the blenders and crockery you need by this point, ask guests to contribute financially to your honeymoon fund instead. This way you do not land up with two kettles over and above the ones you had before the wedding! If your hotel has a spa, give guests the opportunity of pre-booking certain treatments as a gift.
