    how did you married folk pay for yours? my fiance and i are trying to get ours taken care of, and its bloody expensive and we never started a honeymoon savings account, which would have helped. so i just wondered if you have any suggestions? we're considering a loan or a new credit card right now, just dont know what to do...

    We included the honeymoon in our wedding budget and used the cash we recieved at the reception as our spending money. We didn't do anything specific to save because it was only about $1500 in expenses total.

    We went the modest route and only did what we could afford.

    If you can't afford that "dream honeymoon" now, do something modest, save for a year or two, and then take a second honeymoon.

    I would wager that as newlyweds, you'll have plenty of expenses without also having to worry about paying loan or credit card interest.

    We didn't go on one until 3 years after.

    That being said we should have done what foster said.

    yeah, it just sucks if we have to change the plan cuz we've already downgraded once. our total cost will only be lik 2500, but we arent sure how much we'll get as gifts from people, and we're also doing a dollar dance, where people pay whatever they want to dance with the groom or bride. so that'll help, but its just the fact that we have to pay for it all nearly upfront thats hurting now....we're going to my credit union to see about a loan, and theres a few credit cards with 0% apr for 15 months, which spread out would be like 80 bucks a month each, which we can do. i just wondered if anyone had suggestions, or knew liquor stores that are easy to rob....

    The irony is that more than likely, you will be able to afford the honeymoon after you get all that wedding money. My wife and I planned a modest one just because we already have 2 kids and couldn't do to much. We stayed at the nicest resort in town for 3 nights. It was a nice getaway but wasn't too expensive and had anything major happened we could go home.

    That's what we're planning to do as well.

    We're hoping to go to Japan.

    We didn't have one until a year later. Even that trip was won.

    Just book a normal-ish hotel type place in a town / city within a few hours drive from where you are. It may not be fancy, but it's cheap.

    We went to Niagra Falls. Used money given to us at the reception for it. Didn't cost very much. Maybe $90 for the motel and then money for food and gas. Probably didn't spend more than $200 total.

    My wife and I just visited a nice state park in Southern Ohio (we were living in Columbus at the time). It's not the dream honeymoon I would have imagined, but since it was mid-December we had the whole lodge almost to ourselves, and the staff was wonderful- they don't think anyone had honeymooned there before. Although, had I thunk about it, Niagara Falls woulda been a fairly cheap alternative as well. Just like Superman 2!

    we actually went to my credit union yesterday to discuss a loan, and got a pretty decent joint credit card instead. apparently my credit is amazing, which surprised me. so thats what we're gonna use to pay for it all, then as we get money gifts in, we'll be able to make big payments on it. and hopefully, when the time comes, we won't have a whole lot to actually pay for on our own. so, its official, we're going to disneyland....
