For brides and grooms-to-be, love in the time of recession often means sacrificing the dream wedding extras (i.e., a band AND a DJ, classic car to and from the church, maybe the chocolate fountain) but not necessarily sacrificing the dream wedding itself. After all, you only get married once. Hmmm..... ok, maybe you only have the big wedding once. If you aren't Donald Trump, that is.)
But love in the time of recession also means putting a cap on the honeymoon budget, While everyone fantasize about seven days in an overwater bungalow at some fabulous Tahitian honeymoon resort, the reality is that not everyone has 15 grand to spend on the honeymoon. But with proper planning and a little compromise, smart couples can still have the honeymoon of their dreams.
Check our these favorite honeymoon resorts for romantic vacation ideas that won't freak the bank.
Seven Stars Resort
Where is it: Grace Bay, Turks and Caicos
Romantic Reason to Book: What better way to commemorate your honeymoon than by having a star named after you and your newly betrothed? The Seven STars REsort in Turks and Caicos is doing just that as part of their newlywed package. This service is actually quite fitting for the all-suite island honeymoon resort which is named after the Pleiades constellation. Couples will receive a parchment certificate upon returning home with the telescopic coordinates for their star provided by International Star Registry. (Note: this is not any sort of astrological governing body, it's just for fun!) When you're not gazing at "your star", you can relax in the resort's salt-water pool, go on a snorkeling adventure or take a day trip to one of the private islands with a chef-prepared picnic. Relaxing in-room is just as good, too, with a gourmet kitchen that can be pre-stocked before your arrival, a Nespresso machine for an instant caffeine jolt, and picturesque ocean views.
And if you like the look of the resort so much you want to have your wedding here, you will receive a complimentary upgrade to an oceanfront suite and a complimentary couples massage.
