    We’re doing 5 days, 4 nights in Virginia Beach, driving from/to Pittsburgh, PA (about 7 hrs each way), and are spending around $2k-$2500, depending on how many souvenirs and how much food we buy, haha.

    Ireland! We are planning our honeymoon trip before we are getting married (reason being we don’t have enough time after the wedding to take it and I didn’t want to do it in winter or wait till next summer) 

    We initially made a budget of $4,000. I think I’m going to need to raise it to $5000 though… after transportation and accomidations I am out of money! 

    Airfair from Milwaukee to Dublin $2,400

    Car rental in Ireland = $200

    Gas= $6 a gallon (omg!) 

    hotels= $1300

    We are going to Ireland too, for 9 days, in June.  I think we will be able to do for about $4,000 (hopefully a little lower, but I always prefer to overbudget), as we used opening bonuses for travel credits, to get our airfare down to $500 for two people, from Philadelphia to Dublin.  So far, we have only booked our hotel stay in Dublin, but are working on the rest of our itinerary. 

    @ Augiefrog, any idea of your itinerary yet?

    We’re going to Banff/Lake Louise/Canmore, Alberta for 1 week.  We’re going skiing, dogsledding, going on an ice walk, etc.  With the flight, car rental, hotel, activites, and food money/gas money, we’re planning to spend $4500 (or less)!  Can’t wait to go there in 3 weeks!  EEEK!!

    We ended up spending a little less than $3k. We did a four night Royal Caribbean cruise to the Bahamas from Florida. We then spent 2 days in Disney World and stayed at one of their resorts. Our airfare was free though because I had a voucher.

    Typically, the average Honeymoon is about 5-7 days and if you want an all-inclusive, adult-only resort your are looking at between 3.5-5k for (Mexico, Jamaica, D.R, Bahamas) and around 7k for St. Lucia or Antigua depending on the time of year you go and the destination you ultimately choose.  Hope this helps
