    We splurged on the flights, but got a great deal on the hotel. My parents have timeshare in Mayan Palace Resorts, and paid the maintenance fees for us as a gift. We’re headed to the Riviera Maya location.

    Timeshare is a good thing to look into…a lot of people are trying to sell their weeks lately, since most families are watching their spending and cutting back on travel.

    We were going to go to Europe and do the big blow out, but realized that given we’re paying for the wedding entirely, the money would be too stressful at this point. Instead, we’re going for 2 weeks to CA and spending time in SF, Santa Cruz, and Monterey. AND the kicker? I had enough Starwood points to spend 5 nights downtown in a SF hotel and pay for both of our airfare.

    So our plane fare is paid for from the East coast. Our expensive hotel is paid for. We’re staying 6 nights in 2 B&Bs which come in under $200/night and have amenities like a jacuzzi and gourmet breakfast. We’ll have to rent a car which will be $300 (we’re torn about renting a convertible). So there will be like $1600 in hotel/transportation costs, which is quite awesome for 2 weeks. I imagine we’ll come in at ~$3000 after food and fun stuff, which is still quite a bargain considering what we’re getting!

    We’re going to Aruba, and it’ll probably end up at about $2,000. We are extremely lucky that my Future Mother-In-Law paid for the hotel and flight, or else we might not have had a honeymoon.

    @BeachBrideT: My sister did the exact same thing for her honeymoon in August…Paris for a few days, then off they went to Venice. They had a fabulous time, as one would expect when going to such romantic destinations. =)

    @TennisSMLS: Isn’t timeshare great!? You can always find good deals on RCI websites. 

    Hope you girls have wonderful trips!

    We’ll spend over $10,000 — but hoping to cash in some frequent flyer miles for first class upgrades to Thailand. Fiance found an awesome 12 night bed & breakfast tour that covers all kinds of cool activities (and beaches, thank goodness).

    We went to the Amalfi Coast & Capri for 2 weeks which cost a lot of money. I would say we didn’t have a budget.  However, I am so happy we did it, bc there is no way I would ever spend that much on a vacation again and it made the honeymoon seem really once in a lifetime.

    We are following in Mrs. Sea Breeze’s footsteps and spending a week at the Majestic Colonial in DR – for less than $2200 including airfare!

    We decided that we were doing exactly what we want for our honeymoon, no compromises.  We’re spending $7k + on a 14 day Hawaii excursion!  The best hotels, tours, etc.  Can’t wait!!
