My Fiance and I initially wanted to go abroad for our honeymoon, but due to finances, we ended up deciding to spend our honeymoon in the good ole U.S. of A! At first we looked into Hawaii, but even that was crazy expensive!! What helped to narrow our decision was when my aunt’s S.O. agreed to let us use his timeshare property in Orlando, FL as a wedding present from him! Since our wedding will be in Georgia (our homestate), we will be able to drive and save additional money on airfare! In all, we spent $200 for 4 nights/5 days in a beautiful suite at the Westgate Resorts in Orlando—DisneyWorld, here we come!! I haven’t been since I was 2 years old, so of course I don’t remember a thing and am excited, not to mention the good shopping and eating there. At first, I didn’t think I would be so excited about a domestic honeymoon, but as the days fly by I am getting more and more amped.
So….are there any other bees honeymooning domestically? I would love to hear your destinations, and even some things you might be doing on your trip! I look forward to hearing from you all!!

We probably will. Our wedding is on the beach in FL so Fiance does not want anything tropical.
We really want to go to Orlando, but we go every year… lol. So it’s not like it’s anything new, BUT we enjoy it SO much and would spend more than usual to really enjoy ourselves.
PeachBride – yall will have an awesome time!! Between the theme parks, shopping, and restaurants – you can’t go wrong!
Another thought is to go somewhere in CA. We’ve never been the west coast, so we’re not quite sure what to expect. So we’re deciding to either go with what we know (Orlando, but we love it!) or check out a new city together such as San Fran or San Diego….
Hmm…. decisions, decisions – I’d love to hear what other people are doing!!

We are having an elopement/mini-moon in Texas Hill Country- and plan to bike around to some wineries, have picnics, and hit up a dance hall or two two celebrate! Three nights at a B&B and then 2 nights in a secluded cabin.
We may plan for a proper honeymoon later, to follow our large reception in the fall 🙂

We’ll probably do something in the US as well! I am not great with flying, so we’re more limited on options. We’ll definitely either end up somewhere in the states or on a cruise, not sure which yet!

We are honeymooning in Disneyland for a week. Our wedding is kinda a honeymoon in itself, so when we get off the cruise in Long Beach we will just head over to Disney. We are annual passholders, but its really our favorite place to be 🙂

We rented a beautiful house outside of the Rocky Mountain National Park. It was soooo gorgeous and romantic! We had a private hot tub overlooking the mountains (house was built into the side of a mountain) and a goumet kitchen to cook together after hiking in the day. Oh, and lots of fireplaces to curl up in front of with some wine! It was so great – I can’t believe what a steal renting a house is vs getting a hotel!

we did! We rented a cabin in Gatlinburg, TN for a week. We loved it. It was relaxing and laidback. We went to dinner shows, we went siteseeing and we were even able to meet up with friends of mine from college (Iwent to UTChatt) that could not attend the wedding due to financial reasons.
Staying state side was never a question for us we. We knew we would not be going abroad nor taking a cruise. it was anot a financial reason for us at all. BUT, what ever you decide to do, remember why you are there and love him for who he is.

We are spending a week at a resort in central Oregon. We are renting a private house with a hot tub. The resort has biking, swimming, rafting, hiking, nature centers, and a big city nearby for lots of shopping and restaurants. 🙂
