We had ours at an all-inclusive and everything was paid for ahead of time so we didn’t need as much spending money. I think with excursions and souveniers we spend only like $300-400. 

I think we brought like $200 in cash but used mostly cards.

A few thousand I’m thinking somewhere between $2k and $5k. We want to do a lot of activities and they are costly! We have a little one so we would need $$ for 3 people. Tax there is 13% I believe with set gratuities at 21% I think, so eating alone will cost a fortune.

@NewMrsAnderson:  Which distilleries are you going to? ( I just moved to MS from Lexington, KY) The Woodfod Reserve is SO pretty. We went last summer for a company tour. Buffalo Trace is bigger and such a good place for pics!!


But to answer your question..I think we may take 2,000. Everything is already paid for (beach cottage/catering/venue) and we are going to Sanibel Island so there isn’t so much to DO. So it’s mostly for dinners and souvenirs.

We are only planning on taking $500 in cash with us… But we are paying for everything and booking everything before we go that we plan on doing… The $500 will be for dinners and what ever else we want extra…
