- Wedding: April 2015 - The Landmark
My fiance doesn’t want to help much in the planning of the wedding unless it has to do with a price or I go to him with questions or needing help. He only seems to be worried with money and being comfortable. He volunteered to plan the honeymoon but won’t decided on anything unless it’s exactly what I want and not a whole lot. We can’t seem to be able to pick out anywhere not even to just look into. All I want is something special that will probably only get once. This will also be our first vacation on our own. Any ideas?

Jazzlynn: We can help you more if you tell us where you live and what your budget is.

What about an all inclusive? They can be dirt cheap depending on the location and when you book.

Jazzlynn: It’s so much easier for people to help if you tell us where you live, what’s your budget and what you have done before, if you want this to be once in a lifetime.

Jazzlynn: An all inclusive to Cancun/Playa del Carmen or the Dominican Republic would work. The advantage is that if so choose, after you have paid for your vacation there are no additional expenses. Food, drink, room, resort activities, evening entertainment are all included.
Obviously you can go off the resort and do other activities and shopping, but you have a pretty good idea of what your vacation is going to cost.

You can still have a fun, memorable honeymoon without spending too much without going too far away. TX is a big state in a convenient part of the country. You could even drive to Galveston or the Grand Canyon or something.

I say go on a cruise, 1-2 thousand is a great budget for it, and you get to visit several cities/countries in only one trip. We went on one for our anniversary this year, and we loved it!!

Jazzlynn: http://www.vacationstogo.com is a good website for finding a cruise.
You can chosse the month, cruise region, departure and return ports and see what’s available.
For April and May 2015
http://www.cruisecritic.com is very helpful for new cruisers. Read the forums for new cruisers and for your cruise area and ship. Remember there will be additional expenses with cruising as your alcohol and gratuities are extra. Any excursions you take on land are also extra.

I had two friends in similar situations, they chose to stay in the states to save a little cash. One went to historic Savannah, Georgia which is gorgeous. The other St. Augustine FL which is cool because it has touristy stuff to do but also local hangs and the beach (plus all the cute B&Bs you could ever imagine).

Do you have any family who have vacation homes or time-shares that would let you use them?

You can go to San Diego or New Orleans For a long weekend. The flight would be about $250-300 per person, leaving $1000 for hotel and food. Or you could take a cruise as others mentioned. Carnival leaves from Galveston, and there are 4 day cruises for about $400-500 per person. You would need extra money for alcoholic drinks and tips, but I think it could work within your budget!

Jazzlynn: We live in Dallas and are going on a cruise out of Galvaston on Royal Caribbean for a week. Our room was $1700 total for a balcony. If we had gone with an interior it would have been around $900 total. It’s really inexpensive way to vacation since there’s no airfare!
