    The Fiance and I haven’t decided where we are going yet. Ever since I watched couples’ retreat I’ve wanted to go to Bora Bora. The Fiance wants to go to Disney World which I have never been too, but he has shown me some of the things he had planned and I have no objections. We were also think of going to Cancun as I have never been to Mexico.

    We still have a while to decided but we have made our budget about 5000-7000k.

    So many honeymoon options, and so little time! 

    Fiance gave us a $10,000 budget and we chose Bali as our destination.  We’re staying for a month!  Fiance owns his own business, and I started a new job where thankfully they letting me go.  Our flights were $1500/person from Seattle.  We’re staying at a fabulous budget-busting private villa resort the first four nights, and then we’re going to wing it after that. 

    I’m surprised to read that European trips are under 10K.  I wanted to go to Italy, but I didn’t think we could afford it.

    There are as many prices as there are destinations!

    We’re doing Hawaii, in July, from Ohio which means we are spending a fortune on airfare. My parents gifted us an upgrade to first class (an extra $2500) to bring our total for 10 nights, flight from Maui to Big Island, car rental, hotels to just under $10K.

    If you can stand to wait, there are great deals last minute. I just saw a Royal Caribbean deal for a Mediterranean 8 night cruise starting at $850/person!! and if you eat breakfast and dinner on the ship, you won’t have to spend much more than that. Just gonna make up the cost in airfare. I’ve been hearing about a lot of people waiting to get last minute deals. I’m a planner, I couldn’t do it πŸ™‚

    we’re going on an 8 day cruise to southern carribean followed by a 3 day cruise to private bahama islands back to back. We’ll be spending around 3000 for both combined, and we have a honeymoon registry to pay for some luxuries.

    We’re trying to keep it under 10K for 5 weeks in Europe. EVerything is so expensive this year even though we’re going off peak so we might have to spend more.

    June42011 – we were able to keep the price around $5000 by getting a great deal on airfare and lodging. We bought our plane tix super early for $2200. We opted to rent an apartment instead of staying at a hotel because its cheaper, and we can save money by cooking all of our meals except for lunch. The apartment was $948 for 7 nights. Then, the rest is spent on meals and museums, etc. In my experience, I usually save hundreds of dollars by cooking all of our meals except for lunch, which is cheap. And luckly paris has amazing markets where we can buy our groceries.

    We did a super easy/kind of cheap honeymoon. We got married in Upstate, NY, and were two hours from Vermont, so we just got a B&B there for a week. It was awesome. We honestly didn’t do anything but eat and sleep the whole time because we were EXHAUSTED. Like, seriously, never was I so exhausted in my entire life than that week. We were so glad we didn’t book a “dream vacation” that included a flight because I don’t think we would have enjoyed it as much.

    We agreed that because we took a cheap-ish honeymoon, we would take a more lavish winter vacation the following year, so we’re jetting off to Mexico next winter.

    Our Vermont vacation was about $1300 for the hotel) which included six nights, a gourmet dinner for two and an amazing breakfast every morning. Our rental car was about $120 for the week, and then, of course, we had some spending money (but when we  got back, we had only spent about $400 total for all our meals and activities – including a couples massage). Our Mexico trip is looking like it will be $2600 with the flight, hotel for six nights, airfare and spending money for activities (it’s an all-inclusive, and we plan to eat most meals at the hotel).

    We’re going to NYC for 7 nights, and hoping to stick with our $3000 budget…so far we are on track for accommodations, lets see if I can keep my shopping/food budget in check!! hah

    Realistically…we might end up being closer to $3500, but I keep that to myself πŸ™‚

    Just found out we can’t go to vegas πŸ™ And we can’t fly in Canada either (long story, sigh). So we may end up in Montreal but  I am booking a luxury hotel, maybe the Versailles or the Loews Vogue for about $ 1300 for 5 nights. The rest, of course, will go towards dining, shopping and night life. I guess we have the rest of our lives to travel abroad, right? Yikes πŸ™
