We too, are in a similar situation. We COULD spend all the money we have saved up, which isn't much, and have a really awesome honeymoon somewhere spectacular. But what it all boils down to is this : Where ever we go we will make special. Every year on our anniversary we go to pizza hut because thats where we had our first date back in highschool, it brings back memories and its really special to us, even though its not to other people.we don't want to skip our honeymoon because we would never have one otherwise because there is always something else you could use the money on. We are keeping it local and going to Door County, WI. It's only a 4 hour drive for us and its full of romance and things to do. We are spending approx. $800 on the honeymoon which is 5 days. I would say look around your area for things you could do, you would be suprised at how much good ol' America has to offer
We had talked about a HM since we got engaged. We settled on a place, I found a cheap, but nice, place to stay...then a day later after booking, we sat down and talked and there is no financial way that we can afford to take one right now. Was I disappointed? Yes...Do I want to go on a HM right away? Yes...but, we made a deal that we would work on paying stuff down (since he will finally be done with school and start a real job after the wedding - he went back to school in the fall at the age of 25) and save for a HM that we really want for our 1 yr. anniversary. He has said that we could go camping for a few days (something both of us enjoy and it's cheap) after the wedding...do I want to do that instead of a nice relaxing HM someplace, not really...but I probably will just to get away with him.
