When it comes to cheap honeymooning, not all destinations are created equal

If you're engaged (or recently tied the knot), there's a pretty good chance your big day involved dropping an exorbitant amount of cash. Who the hell has enough money left over after throwing a wedding to actually go on a trip? While it may seem like you're destined to camp out in your own backyard and call it a day, there are actually some gorgeous — and relatively cheap — honeymoon destinations that you can probably eke out enough cash to visit.

These top honeymoon destinations are perfect for the couple on a budget. They offer many affordable yet luxe hotels with great dining options and attractions that won't deplete your savings — so you don't have to skip that much-deserved post-wedding week off.

This tropical paradise offers amazing attractions that cost nothing or next to nothing to see, like Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head crater and the Banzai Pipeline surf break. If you're more into the city lifestyle with a tropical edge, you'll want to hit up Honolulu, the Hawaiian capital, located on the southern tip of Oahu. Honolulu has a hefty hotel stock, which means the odds of you finding one for a reasonable price are much higher. If you're a foodie, you'll love Honolulu's affordable farmers' market on Saturday and the cozy restaurants in the Kapahulu neighborhood. If you're staying in Honolulu, you can snag a room at the swanky four-star Hawaii Prince hotel for a reasonable price, and check out the three-star Wakiki Gateway hotel, which is even less.
