We are going to Hawaii for 12 days. 6 days in big island, 6 days in Maui. It looks like it’s going to cost us around 6k. We are doing it on a budget. Can’t wait!

We did Côte d’Azur and Luberon for just over two weeks, spent $6k. Our flights and about half our accommodations were covered by credit card points. We charged everything wedding-related to high rewards credit cards without carrying a balance, really maximized the perks and saved about $4k. Highly recommend!

We did two weeks in Europe (one week in Italy, one week in Spain). We budgeted $10k just in case. Only spent about $6k. It was the most wonderful trip ever!

Going to Bali in October and our airfare was $1550. We are staying in luxury villas, which raises the price a bit, as you can really do Bali on the cheap once you get there! That’s about $2000. Transportation is going to be a few hundred. Food is mostly included. I’d say about $5000? If that!!?!

We did all-inclusive in Antigua at a really nice resort, own villa and private pool etc. We went for 10 nights and paid around £5k. It was more than we thought we would spend but worth every penny.

We went to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico for a week and it cost $2500. But my in-laws surprised us by paying for it as our wedding gift.

We did 2 weeks in Hawaii (Kauai) for around $5000, some of our flight was covered by credit card points and we stayed in a condo, not a resort and ate in for breakfast and lunch.

More than we spent on the reception for 60 people! 

We soent £4,400 (at the time it was just short of $7k). We went from the UK to Cuba for two weeks. We did a stay in Havana and then the remainder of the time at an all inclusive, 5* butler service beach resort. With a spa and 3 beaches. Spending money we took about £800 but didn’t spend all that and that included spending £120 on paintings while we were there.

We haven’t booked it yet but our budget is £6k without spending money, I imagine out spending money will be ‘topped up’ through cash wedding gifts so it might come to £7k overall.
