I was curious about how much most of you have spent on your honeymoon as well as where you went! I feel like I’m super behind in planing our honeymoon and really want to get on the ball. I just have no idea where to go!
If you don’t mind sharing:
How much did you spend?
Where did you go?
When did you go?
Do you recommend?
I have posted a poll for those who want to speak anonymously!

You may want to add some more poll options because a lot of HM’s are much more expensive than $3K.
Our Honeymoon isn’t until next October but I have a pretty good idea of what we’ll be spending…
How much did you spend? We’ve budgeted $3,000. This will include limo transportation to and from the port (we live 3 hours away), the cruise fare (for a balcony room but we may upgrade to a suite after we see how much money we have left as the wedding gets closer), all taxes, fees and gratuities while on board and spending money.
Where did you go? Cruising to Bermuda!
When did you go? Cruise leaves 10/22/11
Do you recommend? I can’t really answer this yet, but I certainly hope so!
ETA: Sorry, when I first loaded the page the poll only went up to $3,000. Nevermind!

We went to Punta Cana, Oct 26-Nov 1, it was 6 nights, 7 days, 5 star all inclusive resort for $1900 OTD from NYC. If you can find something at the end of hurricane season you’ll get a great deal!

We went to Sandals Royal Bahamian for 7 nights and spent about $6k on flights/spending money/resort, etc. We had a butler level suite and loved every minute of it! We did leave the resort twice: once to do some shopping and once to go to Atlantis so I could go to Bobby Flay’s restaurant, Mesa Grill.
We didn’t pay for any of the bigger excursions because we preferred to just lounge around on the private island. It was fantastic and I’d do it again.

We’re going to spend about two weeks in Ireland, so the total will be in the ballpark of 5-6K. Gotta love EU prices.

@OurWedding: We stayed at the New Husband Royal Arena, which was adjacent to New Husband Real Arena, both resorts were nice.
If you want more information you can PM me and I’ll send you the review I wrote on tripadvisor.

How much did you spend? about $10k
Where did you go? Moorea and Bora Bora
When did you go? Late Sept.
Do you recommend? It was beautiful, but if I had to do it all over again, I would go somewhere closer and skip the 24 hours of travel on each end of the Honeymoon. French Polynesia is a once-in-a-lifetime type trip, so I was glad I got to experience it with my hubs, but I wish the travel part was shorter – would have been so much more relaxing!

We’re looking into Punta Cana or Mexico — working with a $3,000 budget but we’re going in July so prices are low then.

6 nights in Maui, 6 nights in Kauai – Hawaii was amazing – can’t wait to go back!
Car: $800 (ish)
Hotel: $2600 (but we got 6 nights for free so we only paid for 6 nights)
Shopping: $1400 (we bought an $1100 piece of fine art spur of the moment)
Food/Activities: If I had to guess I would say $2,000 maybe..
