We paid about that much for our cruise, Oasis of the Seas. We splurged on a balcany and I’m glad we did. Unfortunately I had a migraine for have of the trip, so we did spend a lot of time in the room. Even with that, we had a blast!

A cruise would a be a lot of fun. You could do a really nice cruise for that amount. We went to Couples Sans Souci in Ocho Rios Jamaica for about $2700, which was all inclusive. There are many all inclusives in Jamaica/Caribbean and Mexico that you could go to for about that much

We are doing Mexico for a little less than that for 8 days. I would look into the Caribbean if you want a tropical and relaxing honeymoon.

I would definitely look at Mexico or the Dominican Republic – my friend went to Riviera Maya for her honeymoon in Sept. for a week for under $3k, all-inclusive. I’ve heard that DR is pretty reasonably priced as well.

I would suggest visiting with a travel agent – they can really help get you started on the right path ๐Ÿ™‚

 

@PitBulLover: What time of the year did you go/for how long? We are going for 8 days in June/July and it was just under $4k for us. We fly out of Chicago. Just curious if you got a super-good deal or other things contributed.

WE PAID EXACTLY 3K FOR BOTH OF US ALL INCLUSIVE PLUS AIR FAIR WITH AN UPGRADED OCEANVIEW ROOM AT THE COUPLES, TOWER ISLE. WE KNEW WE WANTED TROPICAL & SOMEWHERE THAT WASN’T GOING TO HAVE A BUNCH OF KIDS. THIS IS WHY WE CHOSE A COUPLES RESORT. MY BEST FRIEND AND HER HUSBAND WENT TO A COUPLES (NEGRIL) AND SAID IT WAS THE BEST WEEK OF THEIR LIFE! GOOD LUCK!! CHECK OUT THE REVIEWS ON TRIP ADVISOR TOO, THEY ARE INCREDIBLE! I CANNOT WAIT!

Sign up for Ideeli!! They’re one of those sites that have sales on designer stuff but they also have killer travel deals! We got a 10 night all inclusive stay at a resort in Antigua for a little under $3,000. Of course that doesn’t include airfare and a few other things, but even adding airfare we made out really well.

They go through a bunch of different sales but the place we’re staying is actually on there again right now – The Verandah ๐Ÿ™‚

We booked our HM last night (yay!!) for the week before your wedding date.  7 night Eastern Caribbean Carnival cruise in a balcony on an ungraded floor for under $2000 (not including airfare but inlcuding gratuities).  A cruise was perfect for us because we don’t drink a lot either but all the food and room service (including breakfast delivered every morning if we want!) are included.  Plus in the middle or end of May, there shouldn’t be that many kids (17 or under) on board since most schools don’t let out until the beginning of June.  Good luck in your search!

You should also check Puerto Rico. They have some very good deals at some beautiful resorts. My fave is Wyndham Rio Mar. I would also recommend Secrets in Mexico. Lots of fun! Check out cheapcaribbean.com

We’re going to Cancun, Mexico for 9 days. All inclusive and airfare included for less than $2,200. I’ve been before and must say that all inclusive is worth it because you don’t have to worry about carrying money for food, especially since bathing suits don’t have pockets ๐Ÿ™‚
