If you’re looking for an affordable trip to celebrate your status as husband and wife, look no further than these Gulf Shores honeymoon ideas.


Relaxing or Adventurous?

Is there anything more relaxing than a beach vacation? Picture yourself relaxing on the sugar-white sands of Gulf Shores, just steps away from the luxury home that you’ve claimed as yours for the week (or month or long weekend). With fabulous events, plenty of budget-friendly activities, and plenty to within proximity of your Fort Morgan rental, a Gulf Shores honeymoon can be as relaxed or as action-packed as you (and your new wife or husband) desire.

Your Home Away From Home

There’s a wide variety of beachfront honeymoon accommodations to choose from, so it’s helpful to narrow down what amenities you’ll require. Determine whether or not you need the following:

  • Beachfront
  • Wi-Fi
  • Washer and Dryer
  • Pet-friendly
  • Fireplace
  • Private, Shared, or Heated Pool
  • Fitness Center

You also need to determine how many bedrooms you need. If it’s just the two of you, will one bed and one bath suffice? Here are two of our favorites:

Pelican Roost

Embassy West

If you’re thinking you’d like more room to really spread out, there are plenty of larger homes still at an affordable price point.


By choosing to stay in a home, you’re giving yourselves the option to save money by making your own meals. Peruse the local farmers and fish markets together, then sip wine while you prepare dinner in your home away from home’s kitchen.

If you’d prefer to order takeout, companies like Gulf to Go will deliver your orders directly from the restaurant of your choice. If you’re a planner, you and your new spouse can choose and schedule both meals and delivery times before your vacation.

Our recommendation: They also have gift cards available, so you could even add a few Gulf to Go gift cards to your Amazon registry so that your guests can treat you to a meal during your stay!
