cbj9:  FI’s parents gave us 5K to spend on our honeymoon for our Christmas present. We are going to Aruba for 7 nights. Flights were about $1200 total, Hotel was about $1300, so we have about $1500 to spend on food/drink and adventures!! Breakfast is included in our hotel so we have to pay for lunch (probably will do something simple) and dinner. And booze!

We went to Jamaica for 8 nights and spent about $4500 (All inclusive resort with round trip flight). The beaches were great, the people were wonderful and we loved the food and drinks. I loved everything about that vacation and I really want to go back! We stayed at Couples Negril.

cbj9:  We spent about $5k on our honeymoon in Italy last October, flights included — 9 nights total, divvied up between Venice, Florence, and the Cinque Terre region out on the coast. We definitely went cheaper on lodging by picking small, family-run B&Bs and VRBO rentals, but those types of places are more our speed than ritzy hotels anyway. All the more money for food and wine and museums!

Sigh… Cinque Terre…

It wasn’t my honeymoon just a vacation, but my Fiance (so at the time) and I went to Greece and it was amazing! I think it cost us roughly around 5k. You can do it cheaper as well we are just super picky about where we stay. I highly highly recommend Santorini it’s insanely romantic.

We went to Ireland for 11 days, 10 nights, for around $4500. Flew from LA, so flights were about $800/person. Booked everything myself using booking.com. We rented a car online, and paid for gas and everything as we drove. All of our hotels/b&b’s had breakfast included for a little extra, so we did that ensure we had a good starting meal every day. We went to lots of different sight-seeing locations and did a bunch of activities known to each city we visited. 

It was amazing!! But I’ll tell you what, we were exhausted.
