    What's everyone doing?

    I still have no idea and would appreciate some suggestions. We are sort of flexible on budget at the moment, so cheap and expensive options are both welcome :thumbup:

    We've got a couple of weeks off work after the wedding (in April if you can't be bothered to work it out from the ticker :rofl:).

    It depends on what you want from a honeymoon really.
    I've heard that originally a honeymoon was drinking mead/eating honey every day for a cycle of the moon after the wedding and it's still a fairly workable idea if you're not keen on travelling.
    You could sit down and chat about places that you've always wanted to visit but haven't been able to, or you could return to a destination that's special to you as a couple if there is one. A lot of people go for exotic beach holidays but if you prefer city breaks then perhaps that would be a better option. You don't need to go abroad either! We looked at hotels and B&Bs in the Peaks, although even that's outside our budget:dohh:! Wales, Scotland and Ireland have a lot to offer too.
    As far as I'm concerned, I don't care whether we go away or stay at home as long as we have a relaxing week together to enjoy each others company and just generally being newly weds!:cloud9:

    Hope that's a little bit of help!

    Beca :wave:

    Loving that :rofl:

    We are both a bit too indecisive for our own good :wacko:

    Reckon we're going to have to combine some beach and city stuff as we get bored quite easily. Though I don't tan in the slightest so am not bothered where, but do like the heat...:headspin: Arrggghhh I give up

    We are hopefully going to Egypt for a couple of weeks & doing one week on a cruise up the nile and another week at a nice hotel, just trying to find somewhere really lovely.

    Too many people keep telling me bad stories about food poisoning though! Grr!

    We went to Gran Canaria, a place called Puerto Mogan. It is absolutely beautiful and we have recommended it to a few people who have gone and LOVED it. We stayed at the Cordial Mogan Playa hotel

    We went to Disneyland Paris for 4 days the week after and then went to WDW in Florida for a fortnight - would highly recommend it.

    We've both been fortunate to have visited some very nice places in the world and just didn't fancy a beach holiday, hence why we chose Florida, it was absolutely brilliant! We stayed at the Grand Floridian for part of it and had a honeymoon suite, was perfection.

    Ooo I don't know that one. We're going to Chaaya Lagoon Hakuraa Huraa as they have overwater bungalows we can afford! I am so excited. Don't think I have ever been so excited for a holiday!! Sad isn't it?! Hope you have a lovely time.

    OO Thats one looks gorgeous!!!!! I know what you mean tho. We have compromised and are having a lagoon villa which is ahalf over water half on beach as we couldn't afford the water bungalows!! I think the only other time we were this excited about a holiday was when we went to Disney Florida!!! It's once in a life time tho so I think we are allowed to be overly excited!!! Hope you have a lovely time to, when do you go?? Ours isn't untill JULY!!!!

    Wow yours looks amazing. We go on the 28th Feb. :) We are actually leaving our boys with our parents for the week so I am slightly nervous about that but just can't wait. Are you going to Scuba or dive?
