A Budget Wedding and Budget Honeymoon in One!

If the idea of planning a budget wedding makes you break out
in hives, then perhaps coordinating all the details of a more conventional
wedding just isn’t for you. Some couples opt for more simple, budget-friendly
options such as tying the knot at city hall and then hosting a small reception
at a favorite restaurant. Other couples like the idea of combining their
wedding and honeymoon in one package with a destination wedding or a budget
wedding at sea on a cruise. Indeed, a cruise can be an affordable way to
integrate a budget wedding and a budget honeymoon.

Benefits of a Budget Wedding on Open Water

1. Someone Else Will Be in Charge

If you plan a budget wedding on a cruise ship, most of the
work is already done for you. You just need to bring a wedding dress and

available for an additional splurge. If you want to splurge, you can also spend
time being pampered at the ship’s spa, perhaps indulging in a couple’s massage
before or after the budget wedding. Whether or not you decide to partake in
some of the extras onboard ship, just remember to include tips in your budget
wedding / budget honeymoon cost estimates so that you can show appreciation to
the people who do the pampering.

Amenities differ by cruise ship and cruise line, but most
have something for everyone to enjoy. While you are on the cruise ship, you can
likely kick back by the pool, read in the library, have a mini-golf
competition, learn to ice skate, unwind in the hot tub, view free theatrical
performances, take classes, or participate in a wide variety of other free

own to enjoy a more private budget honeymoon or participate in adventures with
your wedding guests. You can probably go parasailing, take a jeep tour, explore
ancient ruins, go swimming with dolphins or sea turtles or sting rays, ride on
a pirate ship or glass-bottom boat, climb a waterfall, take a horse and
carriage ride, go scuba diving, take a hike, go shopping, or relax in a hammock
on the beach, depending on where you are and depending on your budget and
