I remember one of the saddest moments I had once I realized how small our budget was for our wedding was the fact that we couldn't go to some crazy off the wall to die for destination for our honeymoon.

We spent weeks and weeks thinking about where we could go that wasn't just settling. We wanted somewhere nice. We we realized we were only going to have a four day honeymoon due to cost and time constraints, we wanted it to be memorable.

Then it came to us.

Colonial Williamsburg.

Just a few hours away. Absolutely stunning and romantic in the fall. Affordable, but it's a real vacation that is unique. Not only that, but since it isn't too far, it is a place we can go back to for vacations and romantic anniversaries.

I highly recommend it, because not only is it gorgeous and historical, you also have the brewery and Busch Gardens right in the area.

We'll be staying for four days and three nights at the Williamsburg Lodge.

Some of you might ignore this place because it seems geeky and silly, but check it out:

Colonial Williamsburg!

It's definitely not what you think! Unless what you think is awesome, in which case you're right on the money.

**Sorry for my absence. Between the election and work, things have been hectic around here for this bride.

I went to school at william and mary and loved the area. I want to get married there it is so beautiful. I think it's adorable that you chose this as your honeymoon. a few recommendations if I may:
make reservations at "fat canary", my favorite restaurant in colonial wmbg. But make them at least a month in advance as the restaurant is small and seats fill quickly.
Williamsburg winery is also very fun and has some good wines! =)

Aw, sounds so romantic and fun! My hubs and I are from Florida, and we too had a (very) limited budget and a limited time frame for the honeymoon. We ended up going to Lover's Key, which is right outside of Ft. Meyer's Beach. So cute, and such a fun place to say - "We went to Lover's Key for our honeymoon!" :)
