    We both paid – we put it on his credit card and paid it off with wedding money 🙂

    I voted other because my parents paid for our hotel, one of my bridesmaids gifted us first class airfare, and we paid for our rental car and entertainment/food.

    We’re planning on combining finances once we’re married (we already kind of think that way, but we have separate accounts), so we are both paying for the majority of the honeymoon.  I’ve set “saving goals” for each of us separately, just because we have different accounts. 

    His parents are using miles for our main flights (i.e. not in between destinations), which is awesome because they would have cost quite a bit otherwise! They are also paying for 3 nights in one of our hotels and using rewards for one night in one hotel (so they are taking care of 4 out of 20 nights).

    We definitely still would have gone to the same destinations and for the same length of time even without the help, but this means we can splurge on a few hotels and I can shop even more!

    My groom and I paid for it all ourselves. We saved for our entire 2+ year engagement. 🙂

    Darling Husband & I paid for our honeymoon. But my parents helped pay for the wedding so we got to splurge and go to Fiji!

    FH paid for some of it but his parents covered most (nearly all) of the cost.

    I chose other …we both paid for half the honeymoon, and the other half came from our Honeyfund! (we used honeyfund . com)

    My fiance has booked and paid for a lot of it himself, but my dad gifted us 3 nights and gave us an open account in an amazing hotel that is way out of our price range.

    We can’t afford a honeymoon right now 😛 We’ll probably go on one in a few years, and we’ll be paying for it ouselves.

    my FI’s parents gave us 4000 towards our honeymoon, and the honeymoon we selected was right under 5000 (Sandals Montego Bay in Jamaica!) so my Fiance is paying the remainder

    My husband paid for it, but mostly because we got married right after I finished grad school, so I had no savings whatsoever.  If I had been working for a few years, then it would have been split more evenly.

    We will be paying for our entire honeymoon.  Our wedding is Destination Wedding and we’re also paying for the travel for that.
