    Save. Since we're getting married the Saturday before Thanksgiving, we didn't want to leave the country for such a short period of time. We're going on a mini-moon in TN, then a longer more extravagant trip in the spring.

    Save. My parents are hoping to be able to gift us a cruise for our honeymoon, but if they can’t, we might go on a weekend trip, but that’s it

    This!!! I feel like this is the most important trip you will take and after all the stress of wedding planning, you deserve relaxation and pampering!

    Save. I totally wish though! With 3 kids, it's hard to find a sitter.

    Splurge. Going to Canada & staying in a cabin in the Rockie Mountains. We're not doing a ton of stuff while we're there but the things we have planned are expensive (helicopter ride over the glaciers)

    It’s a splurge for us since we never take long vacations but it’s definitely a save for most people. We’re spending about $500-$600 for everything.
    I want to go on a long vacation next year though!

    Splurge! Well to us it’s a splurge, for others it would be their budget choice. 7 day western Caribbean cruise with a floor to ceiling window (obstructed view but still get sunlight and some views), excursions in every port and the steakhouse for dinner the first night. I can’t wait!

    Saved! We were going to go to a destination but ended up going on a cruise instead because it was cheaper and the wedding is super pricey as it is and still wanted to have a get away for just us!

    I guess, both? We didn't want to spend the money to go out of the country and buy plane tickets, but we didn't want to go somewhere cheesy either. We picked to go back to Disney World (we love it, and we got engaged there), but we are spending more money on certain accommodations and activities.

    Splurge! We are doing an all inclusive Sandals resort with a butler suite. Our best man's parents gifted us with first class flights to the island so that is also a splurge.

    We have not even begun to plan the honeymoon yet! We're waiting to see what we have for a budget once most things are paid/saved for.

    Little bit of both... it’s longer than our normal vacation but not necessarily more luxurious.
