Our honeymoon is just at the end of beach value season.  So we are renting a huge house in the Outer Banks, that has a jacuzzi, hot tub, private swimming pool and its on the water.  Its actually going to be cheaper than staying in a hotel and we are super excited.  During the summer the place usually rents for almost double our whole honeymoon budget.  So we feel really lucky to be staying there, even if we are staying in the US.  I’m just gald we don’t have to go through the hassle & expense of getting passports!  Some people have given us weird looks about not going to the Caribbean but oh well, we’re happy and that’s all that matters!

We are heading to AC for a week.  Usually when we get to go it is for a concert so it is an overnight thing, we are using my mom’s time share as her present to us…after the wedding the finances will be tight.  I also have two kids and did not want to go too far just in case.

We are going to Disney World for our honeymoon! I have only been once, and my fiance has never been, so we are both super excited.  We live and Mass. and are making the 24 hour drive to Florida! I am super excited about the whole thing!  We are going to stay at a resort inside Disney and feel better about having the luxury of our own car, on top of neither one of us are huge fans of flying.

My uncle is loaning us his beach condo in FL.  We were looking to go abroad too, but who can pass up a free beach condo??

We’re from Pittsburgh and we’re honeymooning in Charleston, SC for a week.  Anyone else feel like people kind of turn their noses up at a domestic honeymoon?

We’re honeymooning in Hot Springs, Arkansas and are really excited!  We found a really nice B&B with awesome honeymoon packages.  It’s going to be really fun and within our budget. 

Like JillBill said, it does seem like people don’t seem to think a honeymoon is a “real” honeymoon unless it involves a passport, but I think that’s a new thing.  I don’t think people in my parents’ generation felt that way.  A honeymoon is a time to spend with your new spouse and it can be as simple as staying in the next town down the interstate or  going half-way across the globe.  It’s up to you to make it special wherever it is.  You have to work with your budget and there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the US.  It’s a big country after all! I do think that by reading wedding blogs, there’s an additional sense of everyone going on grand honeymoons abroad, but when I look at people I actually know, there’s a lot more variety.  Sorry–didn’t mean to get on a soapbox!  It’s just a topic I’ve thought about a lot lately.

@peachbride: You’ll have a wonderful honeymoon in Disney.  Fiance and I discussed going there b/c it is one of our favorite vacation spots.  However, we have opted to try Hawaii.  I’d like to suggest checking out http://www.allears.net and http://www.disboards.com.  They have wonderful ideas for honeymoon activities and can help narrow down your restaurant selection.  I’d like to recommend the California Grill in the Contemporary Resort for dinner.  And try and get reservations for later in th evening so you can watch the fireworks from there.  Also, enjoy a breakfast at the Knoa Cafe.  The Tonga Toast is out of this world.  Enjoy your honeymoon!!!!!

@peachbride:

We have not done that yet! We are not going to be going until June of next year, but we have narrowed down a few of the places that we liked and hope to stay when we go.  I defintely want to get the mouse bride and groom ears though.  And everyone has said to mention you are going to be on your honeymoon anytime you do something.  Book the vacation, make reservations for dinner, ect
