    Ours was $3800. It was 8 days/7 nights in the Dominican Republic at the Excellence, June 22-30. Most expensive time of the year =

    We are hoping to keep it below $2000. This would include airfare to the west coast, rental car and hotels for our 7-10 day drive from San Fransico to Seattle (with lots of detours, of course).

    We are spending almost 6k on an all inclusive resort/honeymoon package for 11 nights . Travel is important to us in general, and we usually spend 2-3k on our yearly vacations anyway.

    We’re probably going to spend arounf $5K but that will include spending money.  We haven’t been on a vacation since we got engaged (March 2008) and I’m really looking forward to it!

    I guessed below 3k but my Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law are getting us a trip to Italy so I am not really sure how much it is costing…

    I picked Option 3—it’s in the lead right now!  We’re going to Hawaii, and our budget includes flights to/from Chicago, flights between islands, resort stays, and our daily spending plan for food and adventures.  We’re spending more than I expected for luxury, and I’m gonna savor every bit of it. : )

    Normally our honeymoon would cost around 4k or 5k for 8 nights in Cabo San Lucas, but we are paying for it all in hotel points and air miles so we essentially aren’t really paying for anything other than expenses while we are there.  We might have to pay to upgrade our room to a suite when we get there though, unless they do it for free.

    Ours was $2,800 for flights to Jamaica and seven nights stay at the original Sandals Resort – the Carlyle Inn. My grandfather generously gifted us $2,000 to go towards it so we are only paying $800… plus, I’m saving some extra for massages and excursions. It’ll probably be somewhere around $3,200 in total.

    Our budget is somewhere between $5K-$6K. We have pretty high travel expenses because we are flying from the rural Northwest to the Caribbean, so that amount includes a rental car to drive to the airport, flights, and hotels along the way (we have overnight layovers on the way there and on the way back.) It also inlcludes a 6 nights stay at an all-inclusive resort in St Lucia and our spending $$.

    Can’t wait!

    OK, I picked option 4 but we’re going to Italy for 2 weeks.  We figure it’s probably a once in a lifetime trip so we’re going to enjoy it to its fullest!  🙂

    We are doing really simple.  We usually spend about $1k-$2k per year on various small trips and one large ski trip.  We don’t have the money to spend a ton on our honeymoon and there is no where we REALLY want to go that is within our budget.

    We spent about $7k but that includes our honeymoon TTD video.  If you take that out, we only spent about $3k for 10 days all inclusive in Hawaii (two islands).

    We are spending a little over 6k…all inclusive to St. Lucia.  This is during July 4th week so I’m not sure if that bumped up airfare or not and we wanted a room facing the ocean.
