How much are you spending on your honeymoon?

Recommended Posts

We aren't spending any more on our honeymoon than we would on a regular vacation. After our wedding in Mexico, we are going to Argentina because neither of us have ever been there.

 

We are staying at hotels that are within our normal travel budget. We didn't upgrade rooms or anything. We did splurge on first class airfare, but my FI travels alot for work so we used miles for most of it. And we'll probably go out to nice dinners and spend extra money on activities that we normally wouldn't have, so that we can make the trip memorable.

 

I'll be happy to just be in warm weather and not working for 2 weeks!! YAY!

We are getting married at a resort new Ocho Rios the first week then our 2nd week we are going to Negril and getting a beachfront suite, we decided to go all out since this is a once in a lifetime trip, so our 2nd week is $3600 for us both. our airfare was just an extra $90 each to extend it a week. I also booked it through Expedia and i have until about 2 weeks before to get a full money back refund if we find it cheaper elsewhere! yay!

We also splurged on first class but it was only $300 each so well worth it in my mind :)

We've recently decided to wait until spring to do our honeymoon, but we are thinking a cruise. We figure we can get the most bang for our buck that way. I'm hoping that we can get away with spending only $1000-1500 for both of us for 5-6 days.

We have stayed at sandals in Montego Bay. We stayed at the royal Caribbean but you are allowed to visit the three resorts in Montego Bay. Royal carribean is a smaller resort and we like it the best of the three. But we had our room right on the beach and because it is smaller it wasn't as crowded.

We plan on maybe bora bora in the next couple of months after the wedding. And maybe on our one year anniversary visit the resort again. We have the travel bug though - so we travel often!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
