    We splurged smartly. We chose Hawaii which is a splurge considering we’re on the east coast but I did it the cheapest way possible!

    I think we’re going to be saving by doing something more local and just trying to enjoy each other and unplug from our daily lives.

    I am of the mindset that your honeymoon is the time to splurge, if you afford to do so! It's a way to celebrate your nuptials and start your life as husband and wife. If you can do it, I say splurge on your honeymoon!!! It's a vacation you won't regret spending the extra on. We went on a Princess cruise to the Caribbean. It was so luxurious and relaxing, we had a wonderful time!

    Splurge? My FFIL has a timeshare that he is booking for us and FMIL is paying for our flight but we will be gone a little more than a week and the place is fancy so our food and drinks will probably add up.

    I’d say both, but probably more on the splurge side. My fiancé and I will likely have a mini moon after our wedding in September 2020, location TBD but probably not further than a few hours away from home. Then we plan on going on our “official” honeymoon in April 2021 to Italy and England. April is a cheaper time to travel to both, at least according to my research, and I’m going to utilize either Costco Travel or a local travel specialist to see what deals I can find. I know it won’t be super cheap, though, but we’ve dreamed of visiting both countries for so long.

    Splurging-ish. It will probably cost about what the average honeymoon costs. Iceland, Ireland, and the Azores. Air BnBing and doing two-way tickets at each of the chekpoints to cut costs. Also, spending the most time in the Azores where the cost of living is the lowest Smiley winking

    Save. We want to have a big wedding and a simple honeymoon. Not planning anything too extravagant. Maybe a 5 day cruise in the off-season.

    I’m hoping to splurge a little and save a little at the same time

    Both? By the time we take our honeymoon, we will have enough Marriott points to spend a week in Japan (where we ant to go for our honeymoon since I lived there for 6 years) and have enough miles to only have to pay for plane tickets for one of us.
