I’m getting married July 2013 and thinking about where we should go for our honeymoon. We are on a tight budget and right now, the plan is to stay in FL at my family condo. I have been there many times (this last summer with a gf) but FI has never been there nor has he ever even been to the ocean (WHAT! Thats crazy! lol)…So, FL is our backup plan. We could stay there for two weeks bc we would not have to pay to stay (just airfare, food and going out). While I know that is financially the best option, we could get more for our money becuase we could stay longer but..I have been there a bunch of times, and part of me wants to go somewhere exotic. So then I thought maybe we could go to Key West for a few days before going to the condo in Daytona. Or…I thought about just splurging on an all inclusive out of the country..but then we would not be able to stay as long.
Condo or splurge?
Can you suggest nice but inexpensive all-inclusive resorts? (Preferably places that are somewhat safe. lol).

Honestly, if I had the option to stay for free somewhere for our honeymoon I would do that. We are paying for our wedding ourselves, so we don’t have a tonne of money to spend on our honeymoon.
If you can afford to go somewhere exotic do that!

I’d splurge a little and do something different. Maybe Key West or an all inclusive if you can pull it. Is your family condo in FL a timeshare? Can it be exchanged? I just wouldnt want to do something that I do like every year for my honeymoon. I’d want to do something a little different.

My aunt owns the condo so I can basically pick any week of the year to visit as long as they arnt allowing someone else to occupy it that week.
We really cant afford an AI but I still wanted to consider places that people could refer me to that arnt too expensive.
We were also tossing around the idea of going to FL for our honeymoon in July then come December we both have time off so we could go somewhere nicer and more exotic then. All I know is that I have never been anywhere out of the US that is AI and I really want to go somewhere before we have a baby.
Any ideas of less expensive but nice AI places?

We are paying for the entire wedding ourselves, around 35k and a honeymoon. So we are in the same boat. But we did already book a trip to an all-inclusive resort in Cancun, Mexico for about 2400 for 7 days. there are a lot more cheaper options but I just HAD to have a room with a balcony jacuzzi! lol and afterall, we will be celebrating my hubbys birthday and honeymoon so adding the extra 300 was no big deal. bookit.com has great honeymoon options btw. 🙂

Can you do the condo in FL for a week, and then a few days at a nice resort? I’m not sure where in FL you’re going, but I love Safety Harbor Resort & Spa. It’s in the Tampa Bay area.
