    We haven’t booked yet but we are thinking Banff,Alberta as the view and chalets are stunning.

    We are getting married June 20, 2020. We are looking at a Mediterranean cruise - the cruise line we want hasn't released dates just yet. We are hoping for Greece & Rome. Dates will be out in December so we will leave a deposit then. We are both teachers and we will still have 4 days of school after the day. So we will most likely leave the week after. We will probably spend 8,000 give or take.

    We had an amazing opportunity so we went on our honeymoon in October and we will not get married until March. We know this is very unconventional but we couldn't turn it down. We went to Greece and Italy for about 2 weeks. I would not change it for anything, it was amazing! We only confirmed it the night before, and booked our airbnbs as we went.

    I am not getting married until 2020 and I have already picked out the honeymoon location. We are staying in Canada and doing a small chalet retreat. I wanted a relaxing, mountain view honeymoon during autumn.

    Our wedding is July 13, 2019, and we are struggling trying to decide where and when to go! It's hard leaving Canada during the like 2 months of nice weather that we do get. So if we go somewhere warm, I would prefer to leave during the colder months like December/January. But wouldn't it be more fun to just slip away, after all that hard work and planning, to somewhere wonderful right away?! We may do a mini-moon (extended weekend) somewhere within driving distance, just to get away and enjoy each other and all the work we put into it. Cost will be a big factor for us; as I'm sure we all have discovered, weddings are much more expensive than you expect.

    Trying to decide between waiting on a seat sale and booking a bit more last minute, or booking like a year in advance to try to get a good early bird deal.

    So many decisions!

    I’m in grad school and will still have a few months to go when we get married. I was already planning a trip to Ireland and Scotland as a celebration at the end of school so it’s now becoming a combined end-of-school, honeymoon, first anniversary trip.

    My FH any I are working together outside our jobs building an asset, and that allows us to travel a lot so we decided to make our honeymoon out of a business trip to Vegas! We will be there Friday, saturday, sunday to take in some amazing speakers to hear their stories and then spend a couple extra days in Vegas!! we are so excited about it. two birds with one stone and we couldn't be more excited about both parts

    We weren't sure if we wanted to do a honeymoon close to after the wedding, but we booked about 1 month before the wedding! Air Canada was having a sun seat sale so we got our round trip flights to Hawaii for just over $500 each. It was hard to say no.

    We are going one week after the wedding for 1 week (Nov 17-24) to Hawaii.

    We are planning for about $4K total. It'll be nice to relax somewhere nice after all the planning.

    Our honeymoon ended up being a little weird. Originally, we planned no honeymoon because we are taking an extended trip to Europe next year to see my family and have a little honeymoon then. Then, we got so frustrated during wedding planning that we decided we were going to take a short honeymoon. We planned our honeymoon about 4 months in advance of the wedding, paid the final payment for it about 2 months beforehand. Our wedding is on the saturday night, we are leaving monday at 7 a.m. and then coming back on the friday, so 4.5 days. And we're going to Mexico. We chose a pretty nice resort and a pretty luxurious room at the resort so its costing us about $4000 for the 2 of us, including flights, hotel, food and alcohol.

    The european half of the trip will be planned after the wedding and with the help of a travel agent because trying to figure out where its best to fly in and out of italy, and how to rent a car, is proving to stressful for me.

    2- We’re hoping to leave within about a week of the wedding
    3- Walt Disney World in Florida!
    4- Hoping to keep the budget at or around 5K

    We haven't booked yet but will likely do so in the new year. Thinking of booking a glamping trip or an inn in prince Edward county.
    We're just doing a weekend honeymoon bc we have 2 small kids and need to be close to home / available if needed. It'll be a week or 2 after the wedding. No real budget but I don't anticipate it costing thousands for a weekend.

    1. Haven't booked just yet but hoping to do so soon!
    2. Getting married Sept 2019 and going to do a weekend mini-moon right after the wedding (maybe wine country?) and our big honeymoon in May the following year.
    3. ITALY!!! Since we are getting married in September it would be a great time to go right after the wedding but I'm not sure I want to rush right into the honeymoon, which is why we might wait until May.
    4. I'm assuming it'll be between 5-10K but not sure yet!

    1. We’ll probably be booking 7-8 months out mainly because I know where we’re going and we’re going off season
    2. Months- our wedding is the end of November so we want to stick around for Christmas and New Years and such. We’ll probably go in like the March-April area
    3. England- it’s where I was born and I’d love to show him.
    4. $10,000- Pretty sure we’ll come under that but with the flights and a place to stay looking at $6000 alone we wanted to make sure we had a good buffer for all the things we want to do!
