I know it would be great to take a honeymoon to your own destination, but think of it this way:

You are getting a close to FREE trip to Europe!  You can go ANYWHERE you want, ANY other time!  You are getting married..  Marriage is not one day, it’s for the rest of your life.  My Fiance and I are not going on a honeymoon right away; we can not afford it.  I would be THRILLED to have a family member pay for my honeymoon.

I know it’s not ideal but at least it gets you to Europe for very little of your own money.  Even if they are paying for hotels and airfare, you are still going to have to pay for a lot of little things, like day travel, museum and attraction fees, souvenirs, food, etc.  As long as the hotels are decent, I wouldn’t worry too much about how they are booked.  How much time do you really want to spend there anyway?  And later on, the two of you can go to Europe and do it all your way on your dime.

I guess just say, “Thanks Dad, but we want to go elsewhere..”.
