We’re not going anywhere.  We’ve been blessed to take several wonderful trips during our first year of marriage.  We’re in the middle of selling our house and buying another.  That coupled with several other financial goals – we’ve decided to stay home and enjoy a nice night together.

This is a great question!  I know we’ll go somewhere for our 1st anniversary (and would, if financially able always) to go on an anniversary trip each year (my sis does and it keeps them connected).

We’re going on  a nine day anniversary trip to Texas! First stop, Houston, and then Austin, Dallas, San Antonio and Galveston.  We’re hoping to at least spend a night in the last two cities but we’ll see how it goes since I’m sure we’ll be exhausted from all the driving.   We’re on a tight budget but hopefully with airfare, car rental, hotel, food and entertainment we can keep it under $2500.

We’re taking a road trip a month prior to our 1 year and hoping to do it for under $700 or so. But it’s more about having a baby on the way and taking one last solo trek together than it being about an anniversary…  🙂

I am originally from new york, and my hubby has never been there and is dying to go to eat all the great food! So we might be headed out there for our anniversary! The 2nd option would be another cruise that a lot of our family is going on.

For cost, i am thinking will be between 2-3k for both of us depending on which we do.

I’ve been thinking about this lately! Wanted to go somewhere tropical, where we could just relax. We had mentioned going on a cruise, but found out on our honeymoon that my husband doens’t have a very strong stomach when it comes to being on the open waters- oh well! I def. want to go somewhere I’ve never been though! Maybe we’ll try somewhere cold- Would love to go to Alaska!!

We had a Destination Wedding wedding in one of our favorite small towns in the NE. So we’re going back for our one-year anniversary. We didn’t have enough time to really enjoy it while we were there for our wedding, so we’re looking forward to a long weekend of no plans in a beautiful town!

For flights, hotels and rental the car, it’ll be about $1,000 for both of us, not including spending money. We found a great deal for our hotel on Hotwire, so the room was crazy cheap.

We’re hoping this is something we’ll be able to do every year of our marriage, it’s such a great way to reconnect!  Our first year we went to the Dominican Republic, and for our 2nd anniversary next month we’re going to Hawaii.

@contrarymary: Yea for Texas!

We didn’t go anywhere.  I’m pregnant and have been so busy with work travel that I just wanted to stay near home.  We went out to a very nice dinner and spent the night at the hotel we stayed in on our wedding night.  Brunch the next day (on our anniversary proper) and wonderful (no kidding!) year-old cake that evening.

I had never thought about a 1 yr annivarsary trip.  I’d like to maybe go on a weekend B&B trip locally.

We’re talking about palm beach Florida (honeymoon spot) or the keys (FH has always wanted to go).
