Place is what dreams are made of…. I agree!  It’s hands down one of the most beautiful and diverse places we’ve been to!  (here’s my recap if you want to see a sample itinerary: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/iceland-picture-recap/)

As far as the honeyfund goes, it’s basically just a site that gives you money so it not like you really have to wait for it to book anything.  I’d just book everythign and use it to ‘pay yourselves’ back unless you actually need the money in hand to pay for anything.

We are using a honeyfund. Don’t count on the money of others. Just book the honeymoon you can afford. If people contribute- great! Use it to pay yourself back. 

Suggestion- one idea that we are using and has gone over well, we are using the honeyfund as an excuse to take more pictures (usually forget). If someone buys us dinner we will take a picture at dinner and include the pic in the thank you card. Same with activities. We are not asking for hotel or airfare.

pinkshoes:  I was just checking out your thread and noticed that I commented on it back in 2013 that we were hoping to go in 2015… and now it’s 2015 and DH and I will be leaving for Iceland 5 weeks from today! Haha, too funny!

OP, I am not familiar with how honeyfunds work, but you should definitely go to Iceland! We are leaving soon and I am so excited!!

howsweetitis:  yay!!  That is awesome!  You’re gonna love it.  We’ve discussed going back since I just discovered WOW airline has direct flights from BOS for less than $350 at times.  🙂

Honeyfunds are considered tacky. Just ask for nothing and people will usually give you the money anyway. 

I love Iceland though. Was going to go there this summer but instead we’re going to the mediterranean.

honeylamb: i used honeymoon wishes – another version of honey fund. Basically you set up “experiences” and ask people to fund, ex: wine and cheese picnic by the Effiel Tower, or jazz concert and put a price that would cover that experience. if you need the money to take your honeymoon, then take some time to research “experiences”. People seemed to like the variety of adventures we wanted to go on.
