@juliasoko after the flight you can do a trip to Thailand fairly affordably! In most places there is a great range from very cheap backpacker lodging to some of the most extravagant hotels in the world.  If luxury isn’t a necessity to you then you should be able to get very nice accommodation for $100ish a night.  PM me if you need some tips.  Though, I’m not sure what your travel agent was talking about as there are lots of warm places in April!

@Elarissa That’s a great deal!

Key West & Walt Disney World for a total of 9 nights for about $5,000.  We did set up a honeymoon registry so hopeully that total will go down some…we didn’t ask for flights or hotel…just some activities and alcohol.

We went to New Orleans.  Including our rental car to drive there after the wedding, 2 nights hotel (the other 3 were a timeshare gift to us) and food/activites we spent about 1800.  I loved staying in the US and we had an amazing time.

Mini-moon in Asheville, NC (Biltmore, whoop!)- Right at $800

Honeymoon in Greece in August- $7,500 (plane tickets ate up most of this! If you can go at a less busy time, do it!)

The wedding plus the house and a car in the shop messed up our cruise plans.  Instead, we booked a hotel for a 3 night “mini-moon” in St. Augustine.  Turns out, St. Augustine is 2 hours from Disney World, so we also spent a day in Magic Kingdom (spur of the moment idea:).  We also stayed in a super nice hotel in town on the wedding night.  It all came in at about $850 (even with the wedding night hotel being 300 of that!) 

I’m really glad we didn’t have a huge trip after.  I was so exhausted from the wedding week that I almost had a difficult time dragging myself down to Florida.  Plus, now we can do a bigger trip later this year:)

We’re going to Universal Studios in FL – staying at the Portofino Bay Hotel in the park… We have a two day park pass to both parks, and tickets to Sea World.

For flight, hotel, tickets and the insurance it’s about $3200

We are going away for a week at an all-inclusive in Riviera Maya Mexico.  It is costing us a couple hundred dollars for activities because the honeymoon is a gift from my Mom.  If it was not a gift it would be worth about $3700 dollars. 

It’s a once in a lifetime trip so we are splurging and going all out on it… normally our vacations are no where near this expensive.

We’ve already gone and returned, but I’ll share too. We went to Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun for 10 days, and it cost (I can hardly believe we spent this) a little under $9K. However, it was a gorgeous all inclusive resort with awesome food and drinks, and we stayed in one of the largest suites, so we definitely could have made it cheaper.

You only honeymoon once though, right? Wink
