How much are you spending on your honeymoon?

Recommended Posts

Same for us - we just change resorts and stay for the second week in a super nice hotel where even the lowest room category is an amazing suite lost in the jungle wink.gif it's not all inclusive - booked 3 months in advance there is 30% discount and it's 3,500 for 7 nights. We hope a good portion of the rest of the expenses will be covered by the registry wink.gif

My FH and I will be spending 10K on our honeymoon. It was more than I ever thought we would spend on our honeymoon, but my FH wanted to do something special so what started out as spending a week in Mexico turned into 14 days in Spain, France & Italy. The highlights for me will be visiting, Cannes, Monoco, St. Tropez, Nice, Pisa, Florence &

Rome. I've already been to Barcelona & Madrid, but I am extra excited to be going again with my FH. I am sure that this trip to Europe will be much more expensive then my last trip, which was back in 2000 right before they adapted the Euro. Our dollar was also much stronger.

i've spent $5000 and counting on our honeymoon. that's flights, tour and accomodations.

 

we're going to turkey and doing an 7 day tour around the country. then hanging out in istanbul for 3 days before flying to the beachy part of turkey and hanging out at a resort for relaxation and 'us' time for another 5 days.

we wanted to make it to greece but that would have seriously upped the cost so we're doing only turkey

 

i normally don't spend this much on travel and i've traveled a good amount(thailand, australia, bahamas, hawaii, mexico) but it's our honeymoon so i'm not as concerned about the cost. that and we're going to try to get pregnant as soon as we can so it'll be our last good big far trip before we're restricted with kids.

 

i'm a huge fan of travel, seeing the world and experiencing other cultures is always worth the cost, esp doing it with your hunny celebrating your marriage.

We're budgeting $5000 for the honeymoon. We're not doing it immediately after the DW either.. we're coming home, then doing the AHR a few weeks later, and then leaving for the honeymoon.. it'll be like two vacations :)

Hi! We're headed to Costa Rica for 2 weeks after our wedding in Mexico and right now, we're probably at about $8000 for 2 weeks hotel, transfers, car, food and some excursions. We are using points for one hotel, so that helps, but I did choose more of the "luxurious" hotels/rooms since it's our honeymoon. My FI is more interested in the honeymoon anyway, so it's an easy sell, at least!

 

I say this is one of the most important trips you and your FI will ever take - so do it up if you can!

We are getting married in Jamaica in the Riu Palace Tropical Bay near Negril and chose to stay there in Jamaica, but switch resorts for our Honeymoon to Sandals Ochos Rios, which is about 2 hours up and away.Right now Sandals has some great deals....along with resorts in general. We got a package special buy 5 nights/ get 2 nights free with a honeymoon ocean villa with butler and private pool with all inclusive package, transfers and air for $3,200.00 for the both of us.

Just search the different hotel sites of your destination for upcomming booking deals. With the economy as it is.... they ARE out there. You just have to search around a bit.

Also, keep in mind that you could set up a registry on a resort site of your choice or through a TA for guests, etc.... to contribute monetary gifts towards your trip. Most people don't see this as impropper because they are going to give you a gift anyways, so why not put it towards you honeymoon?

Good luck!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
