If you are thinking about the beach check out Captiva Island, Florida. It is amazing. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world. South Seas is the resort that is really nice.

We honeymooned at Big Cedar Lodge in Missouri. Not on the beach but still very romantic.

Bermuda would be an inexpensive trip since you’re in the northeast. I’ve never been, but I’ve heard great things about it. One of my stepsisters went on a cruise to Bermuda for a week and loved it!


Hawaii is gorgeous, but SO expensive. The Florida Keys would be nice, but I would probably go with the cruise idea

I bet you could do Jamaica or the Bahamas for that amount. You’d have to hunt for cheap flights, but I think it would be doable! I would prefer that to a cruise, but that’s just me!

I don’t have a set budget but I am a young bride-to-be who only makes $9.50 an hour so I was definitely limited since I’m paying for the majority of the wedding as well. We decided on Disneyland/Florida. It will be during holloween AND my birthday so it’s pretty much three trips combined into one. We’re from California and have never been to Florida in general so we’re excited!

You can definitely do Jamaica for that amount.  Couples resorts is adults only (couples only) and are pretty awesome price wise (and their rates are listed per couple NOT per person).  I’ve only been to Couples Tower Isle (twice) though, so I can’t give any first hand info regarding their other resorts.

@BrieBrieGorGor:  I’ve been to 44 of the 50 states and I will tell you right now that the florida keys are my favorite place in the country, second favorite place in the world (paris IS paris after all).  kayak’s “all-inclusive” deals section is a great place to start:


i think you’d be surprised at how luxurious of a vacation 3K can get you.  have fun planning!

@BrieBrieGorGor:  For five days I would fly directly to the city where I was staying and check in and enjoy the 5 days.  A 5 day cruise doesn’t give you much in the way of ports and ships are way nicer on the 7 day cruises.

I second rawrrrrr that the Florida Keys are beautiful and the weather is perfect during the spring.  You can fly right into Key West or Miami and then rent a car so you can drive through the different keys.  $3K over 5 days is plenty of money.  I don’t believe there are any all inclusives but you could get a deal on a nice B&B in Key West and enjoy “island time.”

@BrieBrieGorGor:  HAHA I totally just realized i wrote disneyLAND instead of world…so used to land! Yeah, I can see what you mean about leaving behind the little one though. 🙁 I know that whatever you choose, it’ll be great!

We are also doing a small vacation this year and our “real” honeymoon for our 1st anniversary. We are doing Belize. We found places were you can stay all inclusive for 7days for around $2500

You can do Mexico or Punta Cana easily in your budget – and stay at a relatively nice place.  We went to an all-inclusive in Mexico that was super nice (had a huge suite with our own private rooftop pool) and the room for 8 days was a little under $3k ( including all inclusive) and the flights were $1000 from the east coast.
