The months leading up to your dream wedding can be full of excitement, but also if we’re being honest they can be equal parts stressful at times as well. After your big day has finally arrived and you’ve officially said “I do,” the honeymoon is the perfect escape to finally relax and enjoy the beginnings of your married life and catch up on some much needed one-on-one time. Alongside the stress of planning a wedding, they can also be expensive so to make your honeymoon completely stress-free, here are some ways to help you plan a magical time without going over budget. 

Instead of traveling abroad, consider all of the fun destinations that can be visited here in Georgia. Doing so can immediately help you save a large sum of money in travel expenses alone. Whether you’re imagining a week in the sun on the beach or an adventure in the mountains, there are plenty of options to choose from all over the state. You’d be surprised by how many romantic activities and destinations are nearby, affordable and perfect for making your honeymoon special and memorable.

If you’re looking for some relaxing downtime in the mountains consider looking into some Airbnbs or VRBO cabins in the North Georgia area. You can find cozy cabins and treehouses in Dahlonega, Georgia through Stay Dahlonega’s selection of Airbnb offerings. You won’t be disappointed by their cozy interior and beautiful forest landscapes, making a perfect place for your romantic getaway. You can spend the days hiking around or visiting the charming Historic Dahlonega Square. If you’re a wine lover, you’ll also be happy to find a variety of wineries nearby as well including Accent Cellars and Frogtown Cellars. These are some great spots for live music, picnics, and delicious wine tasting!

If the mountains aren’t exactly what you had in mind for your honeymoon, Savannah, Georgia is another great destination to consider. Savannah is full of rich history and has plenty of  romantic activities for newly weds to discover. River Street is a scenic historic district in Savannah filled with fun shops, cafes, and restaurants to visit. Some restaurants to be sure and visit are The Olde Pink House and the Circa 1875 for some delicious food and romantic ambience. Whether you decide to partake in a trolley or bike tour of the charming city or choose to explore all on your own you’ll have a lovely time experiencing the city. Not too far from Savannah you can also make a short drive to Tybee Island for a day trip to the beach as well. On Tybee Island you can either spend a relaxing day on the beach or spend time adventuring with outdoor activities such as biking, kayaking, exploring the island’s wildlife and going on romantic sunset cruises.
