    jpbee:  We spent about $5500. We went to Aruba for 8 nights. It was AMAZING. We spent about $2300 on the hotel, $1200 on the flights, and about $1500 on dinners/activities/booze. Luckily, my husband’s parents gave us $5000 towards it and we took $1000 in cash down from our wedding money. 

    We plan to use the money we got at the wedding for a return trip on our one year anniversary! Can’t wait!!

    jpbee:  We went everywhere! Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Kobe, and various other day trips to castles and shrines. We stayed most of our nights in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka and then got a JR Rail Pass (available as long as you’re not a Japanese citizen) which more than pays for itself in terms of savings on the train system.

    Neither of us are Japanese but I can read Chinese which helps a bit. Most people in Japan are very friendly and like to help, and there are plenty of signs everywhere. The train system is the envy of the whole world. It isn’t that hard to navigate, just takes time each night to sit down and plan which train to take.

    jpbee:  hi there! Yes, Skopelos is where Mama Mia was filmed, but we loved that the island wasnt too touristy. You can’t fly there direct but you can fly direct to the next island, Skiathos, and take a ferry from there.

    jpbee:  We haven’t gone yet, but we will spend under $1000, for our honeymoon camping trip, the majority on food and gas. I’m not counting the equipment because we hope to get some of that as gifts and get the rest as stuff to use for many decades.

    We live in the SF bay area (though will move to a cheaper part of California after we are married) and will drive to Crater Lake in Oregon, them to the Olympic National Park in Washington, then back down the coast (up the 5, down the 101, for those that know the west coast). Well probably spend about two weeks, three or four nights at each campsite.

    A big honeymoon really wasn’t our style, unless it’s Hawaii, and I’ve been there a lot. I wanted to go somewhere new for both of us.

    MrsYellowDaffodil:  You guys should totally make a pit stop at the Sea Lion Caves in Florence on your way back. It’s magical.

    AllieLaLa:  Just looked it up. That is so cool! We’re still trying to decide what our coastal stop will be on the way back, but that is definitely a possibility.

    jpbee:  Makes sense.  We’re actually waiting a few months, since we’re getting married in February and we really wanted to go camping.  And we’re the opposite, we know we’ll have the chance to go on a big vacation in a couple of years, so it made sense to make the honeymoon smaller and more low-key.
