I think staying local instead of some massive vaction would be ideal. Think a quiet spot you havent been in your state and go from there. There alot of quite nice local packages that are not too expensive. Also some people delay on going on a honeymoon. As they book it for a few months later, that might also give you time to save 🙂

I don’t know where in California you live, but we were going to go to San Francisco when we were going to pay for it. My dad ended up saying that he would pay for us to go to New Zealand, so that is where we are going now. Of course if you live in San Fran, you may not want to do that.

Why don’t you just wait to go on your honeymoon until you have enough money to do what you really want to do. I can’t go on a honeymoon because I’m a teacher and for some reason the school year is starting early this year the day after the wedding to be exact. We are just waiting until when we have time to go.

My sis and bil had to save for their honeymoon b/c he was in Med School and also b/c they had to wait until he got a decent break from school!
It was almost 8 months, but they had a lovely honeymoon in the bahamas!
It’s perfectly fine to save and wait!

We aren’t having a honeymoon. Not really. FI calls it a honeymoon, but it’ll be 7-8 months after we’re married. He deploys, and we’re going to Jamaica a month after he gets back. I envy you even a week at home together.

We didn’t/aren’t going on a honeymoon. Do I wish we could? Sure, but it’s just not in the cards for us.

You could register at a travel agency for a honeymoon. I know in Ohio Central Travel does it as does AAA. We already have our honeymoon booked and mostly paid for, but we are giong to register for a first anneversary trip. We have lived together for 11 years, so not much needed around the house. We would rather travel together, to CA actually! A weekend trip to a nearby city might be an option. Good luck!

Another good honemoon registry is honeyfund.com! It doesn’t have the huge fees (some charge 10-15%) that some of the other websites have, nor does it require that you book travel through them. You give options of honeymoon “pieces” to pay for (airfare, hotel, romantic dinners, etc) and then choose the increments. That way, guests can pay for $50 towards airfare or whatever.
OR go somewhere on CA. Find a nice hotel on Hotwire or Priceline in San Diego, Palm Springs, LA, etc.

I just wanted to share what we are doing for our honeymoon because I think it coudl help you out a lot! I used a website called homeaway.com (or vacationrentals.com). People list their vacation homes from all over the world. This way you don’t have to pay the extravagant amount for staying in a hotel but you get a nice, private house to stay in! My fiance and I are going to belieze for 9 days and staying in a house with a private beach for about $3000 total for the two of us!!! Anyway, I would check it out if I were you, you can find a lot of great deals, plus a lot of the hosts of the houses are locals and can give you all the great tips for getting off the beaten track and seeing the best that the area has to offer while avioding all of the other tourists! Gook Luck!!!

You know, Wedding Bee has this to offer to help out too!
I bet this might be a great help in planning the honeymoon and possibly a honeymoon registry too!

A honeymoon registry would be able to help you pay for portions or all of you honeymoon. It is a great way to ask your guests for something that you really want (a honeymoon) instead of getting 5 toasters =)
