What's a reasonable amount to spend on the honeymoon and for how long? We are considering either South Africa and Mauritius or Kenya and Tanzania so we get a safari and beach holiday but it looks like it will cost alot for 10 days. I'm worried people will judge the amount we are willing to spend and I'm worried 10 days wouldn't be long enough for a long haul holiday.
Hi we are thinking of going to Bulgaria for ten days :)
You'll only get one honeymoon! Consider what you can afford and make it memorable xx
They won't be going with you so I wouldn't worry what others think, if you and your partner like it that's all that matters xx
We are going to South Africa for 7days only because of work commitments.
My reasoning for this is you are spending a huge amount on other people. Plus a honeymoon is the one time to have a once in a lifetime holiday so just enjoy it!
We are going back to somewhere we have been twice before and we know we are going to get judged. Do what you guys want to do and don't worry about what anyone else thinks! This is your honeymoon to make wonderful memories. If your not sure 10 days is enough look at 14 it might only be a little extra, thats what we have found in the past. Good luck, i hope it all goes well x
I really don't think anyone can judge anyone else for what they spend/do on their honeymoon. It's once in a lifetime so I say do what you two want and just let the judgemental people be jealous of your wonderful photos haha. I'm certainly not planning my honeymoon based on what anyone else thinks (except my H2B ofc lol).
How much you spend on your honeymoon is entirely your choice, after all you want it to be memorable
It's your honeymoon so if you have the money why worry about what others think it's just envy
Just don't tell people how much you've spent? I find the phrase oh we got a deal on it ends a lot of conversations! We had very little money as we had a baby on the way but we booked the most expensive honeymoon we could afford and have no regrets at all as it was brilliant! It's your money do what you want with it!
Do what you want, sounds like a wonderful idea and an experience you'll remember forever. Go for it, as long as it doesn't put any financial strain on your relationship. You only live once.
If you can afford it then just do it! Don’t worry about what others think!
We spent nearly 4k for 2 weeks in Mexico, but we had saved for it so had the money, and we were lucky enough that both sets of parents had the kids for us,so we wanted something to remember and make the most of as only child free holiday we would have for many years. x
Why are you actually bothered about what other people think about how much you spend? 🤷️
We're spending 3k on a week in Cyprus but i dont really care what people think. We wanted to spend our first week as husband and wife in the best possible way so we've picked the fanciest hotel and gone for upgrades we probably won't ever pick again. This is probably the last time we will be going abroad just the two of us until our kids are grown up (they're 2) so I'm making it count!
