PW: Splurge vs. Steal - Honeymoon!

Every girl dreams of a perfect honeymoon, but only a lucky few can actually afford their dream (weddings aren’t free, after all!). Travel expenses alone can take up your entire budget, so we took some unique and luxurious honeymoon locales and found similar places closer to the U.S. Even though the room rates aren’t drastically different, you’ll save a ton just by not traveling as far.


#1. Mountain Retreat. If you love hiking and gorgeous scenery, a honeymoon in the mountains would be perfect.
