or you could go somewhere on lastminute.com and you might find a bargain or two.

We're not having a honeymoon straight away because a) we want to stay in Melbourne with our friends and family straight after the wedding and cool.gif we want to go up north when it's not so hot!!

I agree with what the others have said - go away for a few days together and then have your big honeymoon later, that way you get to spread out your wedding celebrations over even longer!!

(Simon is getting annoyed because I am staring at him and not the computer when I'm typing, and he is finding it really disconcerting!!)

(he thinks I'm obsessed - little does he know)

I married in January this year and for a while we didn't think we would be able to afford a honeymoon.

At that point in time we just resigned ourselves to the fact that it wasn't possible and that we would take it later in the year. We also looked at cheap alternatives such as a couple of nights somewhere local - it doesn't matter where you are as long as you are together.

We came up with the idea of a gagrage sale to get the money for our honeymoon - and it did! Mind you, we had 2 complete households that became 1 so there was a heap of stuff to get rid of. All up our honeymoon cost approx $2000, incl airfares and 9 nights accommodation.

On Sunrise this morning the Accor hotels had a fantastic 5 night deal on Great Keppel Island - if you are local to this kind of thing maybe affordable.

I think the most important thing is that you are together, even if it's for a day or two- a cosy cabin can be made up to be very romantic! You don't have to spend a lot to get a lot!
