        It's just hard for me to imagine... at first my FH didn't even want a HM, but now he's all gung-ho about the idea! I haven't gotten prices for the whole trip yet, but I got travel itineraries & all the flights the TA found are perfect as far as timing... the airfare is at the high end of what we would spend, so we'll see....

          Check your budget, see if you can work it in, and if it is important to you, sounds like a great oportunity, that squeeze out some other budget item to make it happen. Good luck!

            We ended up splurging on our HM because we got a killer deal! We would never have been able to afford the lush HM that we will be having if it weren't for the deal we received (about 40% off!). We ended up booking 8 NIGHTS in a ridiculously posh suite in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I thought we were a little insane too (and apparently so do a lot of other people! ) but hell, it's OUR HONEYMOON!!! When are we ever going to get a chance to take a trip this luxurious?!

            TOTALLY worth it, IMHO. Oh, and btw - we are flying from Puerto Vallarta, back home to Dallas for the night, then off to Jamaica the next day. So I get what you're saying about HMing outside of the area you are getting married in.

            GO FOR IT!!!!

            We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

            We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

              So.... it looks like tahiti & bora bora are out... The airfare is still a killer, even including Hawaii... oh well, an overwater bungalow would've been awesome, so I'm a little sad, but if we take half of what it would cost to go to Tahiti and spend it on a hm in hawaii, I think we could probably do something pretty amazing! Any suggestions?

                How bad was the airfare out of curiosity?

                  The airfare was an additional $1500/person from Hawaii. Ooch! The Resorts were fantastic values- stay for 3 nights, get 2 free- in overwater bungalows. *sigh* We decided to go to the 4 seasons Lana'i for 5 nights- it's secluded, has great snorkeling, and it's just a hop-skip from kauai. So that's all booked today!

                      Not sure if it helps but I've been to Tahiti and it was very expensive just being there, although I was travelling on the NZ Dollar which is only worth 1/2 the USD. Although it was beautiful, I've also been to Hawaii and think you'll have an amazing time there. Esp as it'll be your honeymoon. :)
