The ideas the other girls had a fab, and any one of them would be really great. If all else fails and you are unable to get away then chill out at home. Ensure you have plenty of everything you need so you both dont need to leave the house. Just take the time to relax. Your probably lucky your in Canberra, there are heaps of B&B's within a comfortable driving distance, there's the coast, the snow, the rainforest, and Sydney offcourse. Have a think about what you both want to do for your honeymoon and make plans based on that. I would think you could do any number of things that will be well within budget means and will just get you away, together, alone!!!
HugS hon!!! Looking forward to hearing what you decide to do.

If we have it in Dec we can use some of next year's holiday as well as the public holidays to cover it and the weather will be better where we are headed too. I don't mind at all that we are waiting, it just stretches that lovely 'Just Married' feeling out even longer!
I think having a couple of days away somewhere cosy would be wonderful and will allow you some really special time without costing a fortune.
And just think of all the fun you can have planning and anticipating your big honeymoon!

I have had sooo many people say "oh you have to go on a honeymoon" why??? I am more excited about finally being able to get married to the man I love than going on a holiday.

We are in the same boat as you so don't worry too much. With paying for the wedding by ourselves it seems we won't be able to go on a honeymoon straight away. We will probably leave it for a while till we save a bit of money, but then in saying that I really want to save for a house, so we will see. I am a bit disapointed, cause we have been engaged for so long and still you would think we would be able to save heaps, but it doesn't always happen that way, soo many bills to pay and H2B has just finished paying his car loan and I soo have to pay my visa off. Things always come up that you just can't plan for. Now the car is making a funny noise so that is another cost we will have.
It sounds like a nice idea to go somewhere just for a few days and not too expensive, just so you and hubby can spend some time alone. Even if it is just for a weekend.

Although before hand was very excited to be going!

Then in 6 months or a years time go on your extended honeymoon.
You lucky thing, you'll end up getting 2!!!
PS Alternatively, have you considered a honeymoon registry?

So we are going away for probably 3 days to a luxury resort, then to my parents holiday house for a week or so.
A few people have said to me, all you want to do is relax and enjoy each others company, rather than exploring a new place, although of couse I would rather relax on a tropical island!!
Sorry to hear your husband went back to work the next day Alicia - its not fair is it? Can you get a weekend away for a belated very short honeymoon?
Posted 22 July 2005 - 04:05 PM
My fiance has hardly any annual leave so we're both going back to work on the tuesday but we'll have a 4 day weekend the very next weekend.... i was hoping we could get back up to airlie beach but even that is gonna bit stretching out budget so it looks like a weekend at the gold coast, not the most exotic of places for brisbane people but hey at least we're getting away together, we figure we'll have a couple of nice dinners together and thatll be enough for us.
see if you can fit a little get away into your budget, even if its nothing exotic at least you can go and unwind...

My best friend was in the same boat. They had just bought a house and they went for about 3 days to a farm stay just out of taree nsw in a cosy cabin. She loved it and still raves about it to this day 8 years later!
Your such a sweet girl to accept it also. I think ive been a bit of a brat actually cause I made sure i booked our honeymoon before he did the same thing. Feeling guilty now. Might go the cosy cabin for a few days myself actually and get our money back
