@MrsP0801:  Wow thats a great budget! We are doing a cruise that is leaving from a port only an hour from where we are getting married so thats easy enough! The cruise is from Sunday after the wedding to the next Sunday! We did just a simple ocean view room so for two of us on a higher end cruise line it was about 1800 w/ tax and then we booked our shore excursions and that is about 750 total for both of us and then drinks/shopping/spending money we should stay comfortably under $5,000! When we booked we also got free wine, choc. strawberries, and dinner for two in one of the add on restuarunts because we said reason for booking was a honeymoon and a special going on got us $50 on board credit! You can def. turn a cruise into a luxury experience w/ a suite, doing spa stuff, ect.

We just got back from our honeymoon on Saturday. We stayed at the Majestic Elegance in Punta Cana for 6 days, 5 nights and really enojyed it! We paid $2,100 (including flights) and it was an all-inclusive resort as well.

We’re going to the Grand Canyon for our honeymoon – it should come to quite a bit less than $5,000 even though we’re doing really cool things and staying in relatively high end places.

We went on a 7 night Caribbean cruise and we definitely spent less than 10k. It was a little over 2k for our tickets and room and dinner plus 104 for the pop package for the both of us, we bought two excursions both under 200 and spent around 1k on the cruise/trip. We had a wonderful time 🙂

Wow, I wish I had that budget!!!! You can go pretty much wherever the heck you want for at least a week or two. We are going on a 6-day cruise. I wanted something that included food and such. The total with excursions will probably be $2800 or so. Hopefully we will have some cash for keepsakes, etc. We have no need for flights because we live near a port! You can certainly have a dream honeymoon for that price!

We went to Universal Studios in Orlando Florida … home of the wizarding world of Harry Potter! Ha ha.

 

Hubby and I wanted something active and fun (we had time to recoup as we went about 2 months after wedding) Our room was GORGEOUS, my mom had gotten them to give us a huge presidential suite for no extra charge (actually on accident, she thought she was calling the number to have some cupcakes sent to our room but apparently called one of the head honchos at the hotel!), the parks are all right there and AMAZING and if you stay in one of the three resorts on the property you get an express pass to basically go in front of everyone in line! We never waited more than 15 min even at the normal 2 hr wait lines! City walk is great too with shopping, clubs, restaurantes, movie theatre, etc.  We loved it! You don’t need ten days there especially if you get the express pass. We had 4 days of tickets and had time to do everything at least twice, so you could always head over to Disney, Sea world, etc! Or even go on a cruise 🙂

I love exotic places but i wouldn’t trade my honeymoon for the world!
