Stay Closer to Home
It's tempting to use your honeymoon as an excuse to take that vacation to Europe you've always dreamed of — and lots of people do! But if you're on a budget, consider vacationing a little closer to home. You'll save on airfare and hotels, and spend less time in transit and more time enjoying each other's company. You can always save the trip to Italy for an anniversary, when you're less stressed and cash-strapped.
