Stay at Home Honeymoon Ideas

For some couples, the idea of a real honeymoon isn’t something that falls within the realm of reality. A good friend of mine got married last year but because of a demanding work schedule plus two kids, a honeymoon just wasn’t in the cards. What did he and his new wife do instead? A very smart thing – a stay at home honeymoon in their home town. If you are in the same situation, don’t forgo the honeymoon experience, there’s always something you can do, even if it’s just for a night! Here’s are some good “Stay at Home Honeymoon” ideas that might help you plan something for a night or two after your wedding.

Swanky Hotel

No matter your hometown, chances are there’s a swanky four star hotel that you could visit for a night. It’ll feel like a vacation because it’ll be a place that you’d never normally visit and certainly never stay in because your home is so close. Some of these hotels even have amenities like an in-room hot tub or spa where you can really spoil yourself. Why not take a weekend package to stay in your home town, pay nothing in travel expenses and stay under $500 for a nice, memorable weekend?

Local Indian Casino/Resort

Out here in Southern California, we’re spoiled thanks to the numerous billion-dollar Indian Casino Resorts to choose from. These locations sport exciting casino action, four-star restaurants, amazing buffets and high quality hotel rooms. There’s always amenities like spas and gyms to make for an amazing experience. Most of these resorts offer a ton of different packages to choose from and it’s commonplace to have specials only available for locals, so don’t hesitate to call and find out what they might have for you!

A Nice Dinner / Home

One thing that you can do if you are on a tight budget and really can’t afford to spend even a night away from home is make a reservation at a nice restaurant and simply having a nice night out on the town. There’s no reason you can’t plan for something special back at home. Why not get your bedroom ready for a romantic night with roses, rose pedals, music and lights and have it waiting for you when you get home from a nice dinner? This may not even fall into the true spirit of a honeymoon, but it’s important for you and your spouse to have at least one special night together after the wedding.
