Oooh! We considered the Smokies. Well, I considered the Smokies since I’m from Tennessee. We’ll be doing something similar in Ohio, renting a cabin those mountains by West Virginia for a few days. We’ll bring the dog, have a hot tub, have the place to ourselves, go hiking or canoeing and do a zipline. However, we do want to save and take a trip, probably to Australia, in the next year or two.

We plan on going to Vegas for our honeymoon.  FI has never been and I had a great time when I went.  We are "lite" gamblers and we aren’t really into the bar/club scene anymore, so we plan on focusing on two things: the shows and the restaurants.  I also plan on shopping alot, but FI doesn’t need to know that yet

It is actually really, really affordable right now.  I’m stalking Continental Vacations and for four nights in July at MGM plus airfare it will be under $1,000!

We went to Aspen. We really only had about ten days, and we didn’t want to spend a huge chunk of that time just travelling – plus, we wanted somewhere that we could have some fun (skiing, shopping) and get some great food, but also just spend a lot of time relaxing together (not feeling like if we were just kicked back in the hotel we were somehow missing out on stuff or wasting time).

Vegas is a great deal right now – we went down for a long weekend in early March, and everybody has great specials.  Plus, it’s not crowded – so that’s a bonus.  My parents did Vegas for their honeymoon, and still love to talk about it.

My mom and her husband just got back from Vegas and they l-o-v-e-d it.  They got a free hotel stay because they booked a show (Cirque de Soliel) and for four days, three nights, flight and shows it was under $1,000 at Treasure Island I believe it was.  Their hotel rooms were very modern and awesome looking πŸ™‚

Sorry, forgot to add that my sister and her husband went on their honeymoon last summer to Jackson Hole, WY.  They had a great time, stayed in a lodge type place that was nice and got to go fishing and stuff.  I hear that Jackson Hole has lots of great shops too to spend some of the dollar dance money!  If interested let me know and I’ll ask my sister for more details.

Due to immigration, once I’m in the US I cannot leave until all the paper work is filed & I have changed my status.

We’re toying with the idea of either hitting up Hawaii for the beachy honeymoon feeling… or we’re going to the Willows Lodge in Redmond, WA for 10 days.

We met in Redmond/Seattle so we have a very special place in our hearts for those cities. The Lodge just oozes romance & serenity. I’m leaning towards this one. Sigh- memories!

The US offers tons of wonderful Resorts & options! You just have to do a little digging & research πŸ™‚

We finally decided to go to Maui. Looked into a lot of international options, but given the crazy times we live in, I didn’t want to worry about being kidnapped or murdered on my honeymoon. Hawaii is safer & exotic & you don’t need a passport πŸ™‚

We too are going to the Smokies. We are spending our wedding night in a romantic & historical B&B in north Georgia and then staying for a full week just outside of Pigeon Forge. The cabin is overlooking Smoky Mtn National Park, has a hot tub on the deck, several fireplaces, jacuzzi bathtub, king size log bed, pool table, entertainment center, porch rockers-we may never leave! We are planning on doing some touristy things while we are there-aquarium is supposed to be nice and definitely hitting up the local restuarants-The Old Mill for a country lunch, Pancake Pantry for breakfast, dinner at The Park Grill or The Peddlar (one of the dining highlights of our honeymoon, or so we’ve been told), packing a cooler and spending the day at Cades Cove-but mostly just hanging out, enjoying nature and our surroundings and definitely enjoying each other! πŸ™‚

We’re on a major budget and also didn’t want to spend large amounts of time flying, in airports, etc. and we’re just really not "hotel" people-we’re campers and cabin type people, so thought this honeymoon was a better fit for us. That being said, some of the out of the country honeymoons sound AMAZING and I hope that all of you globe hopping bees have the time of your lives!!!! πŸ™‚

@lizwintz – your honeymoon plans sound amazing! Would you mind letting me know the name of the place where you are staying? It sounds wonderful & just the kind of place we would love – we are planning a getaway trip in a couple of months and we’ve both been wanting to visit the Smoky Mtn area.

We’re going to the Oregon Coast (Manzinita, Cannon Beach) for four days. A little mini-moon! πŸ™‚
