what cruise are you going on? we’re going on the oasis of the seas, i’m so excited! my parents are doing our budget in a weird way- they gave us a set amount of money and said do what you want with it, spend it or keep it. of course that encouraged me to be thrifty for the wedding because i want money left over, but some of that money is also going towards our honeymoon.

We went solo on this.  We’re paying, and its kiiiiinda expensive!  A lot of people ask us if someone else is paying for the honeymoon, I never knew that family helps with this too but I guess it happens often.  2 years ago, friends of ours had their bridal party throw a “jack & jill” party at a bar they rented out.  You had to pay $20 addmission and all of the proceeds went toward their honeymoon and luggage.  It worked out really well for them but I’d feel bad doing that, even though I’d love the assistance!

We had planned on paying for it ourselves. My brother asked what our budget was, and then offered half that amount again and told us to spend it all on one awesome honeymoon! I did have a small heart attack about his generousity!

@ JoeyEmma – That’s wonderful!!! My sister, who is a single mother of 2, has actually assisted us more than the future-in-laws, I’ve definitely been touched by her generousity!

We are heading to the Dominican Republic for our honeymoon! Can’t wait—need a vacation NOW:-)

@ Lees4308 – My parents are hosting a “Post-Wedding BBQ” for close family/friends that have traveled super far for the wedding the day after the wedding, we also wanted to have a bit more time to socialize with everyone…and heading out for the honeymoon the morning after the BBQ.

We payed for our honeymoon but got a great deal cause we bought one of my stepdads weeks off him. It was amazing! The rehearsal dinner my hubbys parents payed for and our wedding we payed for more than half. I think everyones situation is different. Mine coming from divorced parents.
