Honeymoon Cancelled

So we registered through honeyfund.com but still figure we would have to pay for it up front and then reimburse ourselves through the registry later.  However, before I could book our trip our dogs became sick and we had a $1600 vet bill, which I would pay over again if I had to, then today I had to pay $2000 for my car to be fixed and it looks like we are just not meant to go on a honeymoon.  I looked into booking it at a later time but the costs just keeps increasing as the year goes on.  I am bummed I worked 3 jobs all summer to pay for it but unexpected bills keep popping up.  We have been together over 7 years and have NEVER went out of town over night together and I was so looking forward to going away together.  If we don't do it now, I don't know if we ever will.  In a years time we could be pregnant and how fun would that be.

Awwww cant you even try to take a mini moon?? Something small out of state? You have to do something! Esspecially since you have never been on a trip together!

Cruises are nice! I absolutely love them. I have been all over the world but my favorite vacays have always been cruises!!! They are just so relaxing. You get shipped around the whole time, relaxing, eating, spending quality time together, and when you want to get off you have a great new destination to explore!

P.S. Ughh I would spend any amount of money to keep my animals alive and well. Animals are a bigger responsibility that I thought they would be! But you just get sooooo attatched! They are our babies!

if i could gift to you my hawaii trip i would!!! 


i'm sorry doll...


but i do agree with sarah - maybe even if it's just 4 days somewhere out of town - just so it doesnt feel like youre "stuck" at home for your honeymoon???


- pismo beach/simeon/cambria area
- san diego
- seattle
- crand canyon
- Coos Bay in OR - ther's not much up there - it's more for the drive up north
- take the "coastliner" by amtrak from san fran to seattle and back??

Not exactly about having a honeymoon, but I thought I'd offer a suggestion when it comes to your babies (dogs). We have our own little guy, and as dorky as it sounds, we got pet insurance for him the moment we got him. We only pay $90 every three months and it covers 80% of almost everything - all illnesses, accidents, and most routine medical care. So far it's covered a couple of illnesses, his annual physical, and a surgery, so the insurance has paid for itself many times over. We do get teased a little by my family for being overprotective, but it has saved us a lot of money and it will likely save us even more in the future! Good luck!

oh no!  I hope you can figure something out, especially since you have never gone on a trip together!!!!  Is there anywhere near where you live that, like everyone is saying, you could just go and lay by a pool for 3 or 4 days?  Also, as far as the cruise, I am constantly seeing specials right now in pricing, may be worth looking into?  GOOD LUCK, let us know!

When were you thinking of going?  I have a timeshare where I get really cheap "getaway" prices.  For example, I can you one week (i.e. Oct 4 to Oct 11) to Cabo San Lucas or Cancun for $329.  But that doesn't include airfare. 


If you tell me how much money you have to work with, we can make it happen.  There are deals out there....you just have to find them! You MUST go on a honeymoon!!  Even if its a pre-honeymoon! ha!  Help me help you!  :o)
