    We are actually doing our wedding in Scotland (so that’s about 3-4K of the price) and spending a week there. Going to London, Paris, and Amsterdam. We’ll be there 2 weeks. It’s costing us about 8k total. We have a few B & B’s reserved, but mostly staying in hostels (in private rooms when they are available). We spend most of our time hiking, etc so we go to the grocery in the morning and pack lunches, so we really only eat out for dinner. Flying from Texas. We’re actually mailing all the wedding stuff home after the wedding so that we just have our backpacks.

    We spent 3 weeks in Ireland, for about 9K. Not bad at all considering the time we spent away!

    We booked ours 3 days before leaving, got an unreal deal!

    $2100 (though we only paid $800 out of pocket, paid the rest with Sears giftcards we rec’d for wedding gifts (booked through Sears). 5 star (Gran Bahia Esmerelda -Punta Cana) for 7 nights. Unreal amazing week.

    • Wedding: May 2012 - El Faro Convention center, Aguadilla, Puerto Rico

    We are spending more on the honeymoon than the wedding but going to Europe is my lifelong dream so it’s definitely worth it. 

    2 wk Greece, Turkey and Italy Cruise $2,600

    Plane Tickets $2,000

    Tours $1,000

    4 Days post-cruise in Italy $1,400 (2 days Rome, 1 day Florence, 1 day Venice)

    Hoping to spend less than $7,000 🙂

    We plan on paying less than $2000 for a 4 night stay in one of those all inclusive resorts in Ixtapa, Mexico.

    They say Ixtapa is the Fiji of Mexico.

    We have a low wedding budget and low honeymoon budget. I figured we’ll get more buck for the bang if we do Mexico.

    We haven’t gone yet, but we’ve budgeted $12000 cdn for a 14 night trip to Switzerland. 

    Here’s the breakdown:

    ~$7500 for rooms (we’re staying in some really nice places)

    ~$2500 for airfare

    ~$1000 for food (low thanks to 1 week in an apartment with our own kitchen)

    ~$1000 for car/train

    We’ll probably go a bit over budget because the exchange rate is awful these days. I’m used to it being 1:1 but it’s now almost 1 cdn buys only 0.9 chf!

    I think our Honeymoon was about £5,000, so I voted $5-$10 due to the exchange rate. We had 2 weeks in an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica.

    Obviously our flights were a lot more than USA -> Jamaica as we’re a little bit further away!
