My Dad is paying for our honeymoon, but hasn’t told us how much he is budgeting… I have been thinking St.Lucia or Aruba, but since those tend to be the more expensive Caribbean islands, it might be out of budget. My Fiance kind of wants to go back to the resort we went to in Mexico last year, but Mexico is the only place I’ve ever been so I’m kind of leaning somewhere else, as nice as it was. ๐Ÿ™‚

ETA: $4-$6K sounds like A LOT of money, IMO, for a honeymoon, you can go many many places with that!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I definitely suggest looking into Caribbean or something, although it is the rainy season until October, so you might have to delay the honeymoon in that case.

Ugh…I still have no idea.  Definitely dragging our feet.  I didn’t realize it would be such a pain with hurricane/wet season over so much of the world. I lived in FL for awhile so I can handle an hour of rain a day in the afternoon.  So that wouldn’t bother me, I just don’t want a hurricane to show up.

I think we want a beach, or at least a beach part of the time.  I think our dream would be Thailand but I’m not sure I want to do that unless his parents want to help us out with the wedding (he hasn’t asked them yet, but I know they have the means to).  Because if they want to I’d have a lot more $ freed up!  Otherwise, I’d like Costa Rica but October is the rainiest month of the year there.  I’d thought about Germany (Oktoberfest!) or Italy but I feel I will be a little more stressed trying to “do everything.”  So because of that I’m still thinking about Mexico or maybe an island a little out of the way of the hurricane zone. 

I can easily do $5K and if we get something from his parents I’d be a lot more comfortable increasing it.  I know I can do a nice resort near Cancun for that but part of me still wants to do something more interesting.

I might take until May to decide.

We’re going to Mexico for a week.  It’s super affordable and easy to get to for us. Plus, we can stay at a 5* super nice resort for under $3200 for everything.

@LoveGypsy:  Where are you staying at if you don’t mind me asking?  I’ve only looked into a few places since I haven’t made a firm decision yet.

We are going to Belize Oct 1-8!! We are doing it for $3200 (plus 2 meals/day and a few actvities) because we have miles for the flights (would add $1300).

@Asia:  I am apparently needing to get my glasses checked again LOL. I thought you said your budget was $4-6k. My bad.

You should still be able to find some pretty awesome deals for $2500 total… that could definitely get you a week all inclusive somewhere (Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Jamaica)

We’re going to Punta Cana September 16th-21st and staying at the Majestic Elegance! We were able to book it for about $2,100 and have only heard good things about the place.

Super excited for September to get here already!

We got married September of last year, and spent our Honeymoon in Ireland for 11 days/10 nights. Not sure of the exact cost, but I think it’s somewhere around $4500, including airfare, food, car+gas, excursions, room+board, etc. ๐Ÿ™‚

We are going to St. John in the Virgin Islands!  The last time they were hit by a hurricane was back in 1995 and it was minor.  We are getting a beach side condo with a kitchen and everything for less than $350 a night!
