    We did a week in Disneyworld, flying in from Vancouver, BC (which is pretty expensive airfare) and spent just under $5000.

    Ours will be cheaper since we will already be in Maui for our wedding and are just island hopping over to Kauai for our honeymoon.  However, I will price it as if we were coming from home 🙂

    It will cost about $3000-3500 including flight, condo, food, and activities like helicopter ride.  If I go shopping at all (which is a good possibility) – you can bump that up a little bit 🙂

    • Cruise (we had a suite) – $2800
    • On board account – $600
    • Spending money – $700
    • Passports – $300
    • Misc. vacation necessities – Atleast $400

    Worth every penny!

    • Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort

    We live in Florida and are getting married on the beach.  We only have 1 week of time off that we can use for the honeymoon. So, we wanted sometime totally different for us (i.e. not the beach) and that didn’t require wasting too much time of our precious 7 days traveling. We decided to go skiing and snowboarding in the Poconos in Pennsylvania. We’re staying at a country inn/BnB type place in the mountains in a room with a hottub and fireplace and we’ll take day trips to ski resorts, go horseback riding in the snow, etc. We’ll spend the last two days in Philadelphia and tour some historic sites, go to the museum, visit LOVE plaza, wine and dine, etc. Our BnB is about $850 for 5 nights; the Loews in Phily is $500.  Airfare is $550 for the both of us. We’ll use the cash gifts from our wedding to cover the rest. We’re guessing we’ll have between 1 and 2k to use for rentals and food and stuff. Any money left over will go to finishing off our registry.

    So budget is $2000-$4000, and I think we’ll actually spend about $3000.

    We haven’t booked our Honeymoon yet (or even 100% decided on what we’re going to do), so I don’t know officially how much it’ll cost. But here are some of the ideas we’ve tossed around:

    Canmore, AB (Canada): $2000 approx

    • we can drive there from Edmonton (so, 2-3 tanks of gas at about $30-$50 each)
    • hotel stay approx. $150/night for a week
    • groceries (hotel room comes with a full kitchen) approx. $100
    • eating out approx. $500 (3+ suppers, possible lunches)
    • misc. activities (ex. dog sledding trip, skiing, gondola ride, hot springs, etc.) $300

    Disneyworld, FL (USA): week-long trip likely approx $5K-$10K including tickets, hotel stay, dining out, and air travel.

    Europe or Caribbean: likely approx $5K-$10K

    (I’m leaning towards Canmore because I KNOW we can do it for “cheapish”, and because we’ve been there before & know we like it. BUT…I’ve always wanted to go to Disneyworld, and FH wants to look into Europe/the Caribbean honeymoon hotspots, too, so we’re considering those. I just really don’t like the price points, LOL!

    about 5k, dc to st. lucia for 5 nights (arrived monday afternoon, left saturday afternoon). we spent about 5k for flights and hotel at a resort via a travelocity deal, and an airport transfer, and then about 1500 or 2k on meals/drinks (except breakfast), excursions, and spa treatments when we were there.

    We are planning a 10-14 day trip around Switzerland by train.  I believe the cost is going to be around $8,000-10,000.

    I think we are spending about $6,000 for our honeymoon in St. Lucia. We’re spending 5 nights in Sandals La Toc followed by 3 nights in Ladera.

    We’re going to Greece for 10 days – 3 nights in Athens, 3 nights in Mykonos and 3 nights in Santorini.  The total cost with airfare is about $5500 before spending money. I agree with @hecallsmelove:  Typing about it s making me excited all over again, too!
