I feel like i have two fairys sitting on my shoulder, one telling me that it is our honeymoon, so we should go all out, after all, we will have other holidays but only one honeymoon. The other fairy tells me that that much money spent on a holiday is a waste and it would be better spent on the house. Purchasing things we would get a lot of use out of, not just a couple of weeks worth of fun and relaxation.
We would still go on a honeymoon but something a bit cheaper, and i know as long as we are together it would be special but part of me still wants to be whitsundays thing.
Did anyone/does anyone feel like this??
If so what did you decide??
Anyone have any recommendations for a good beach holiday without the whitsundays price tag??

We are somewhere in the middle.
We did the Gold Coast and lots of frilly bits / seafood meals for about $6k in total (incl air and accom).
We figured it would be our last big holiday before kids.. so..

We splurged - $7K for 5 nights at a resort and 3 night cruise at Fiji - but all meals are covered too.
We're only going to do it once I guess (Steve's been told! - it's too expensive to divorce when you pay this much to get married!)
Just so blessed: Keely Grace, Imogen Elise, Jakobi Jai and my better half Steve

14 nights in a 5 star serviced apartment overlooking the lake in Queenstown plus snowboarding, heliboarding (for Chris) and trips to Milford sound etc.....
You only have one honeymoon so go for it! Besides after the hectic lead up to the big day you are going to need a holiday!!

If I had to do it again, I'd probably get in the car and venture on down the Gold Coast to our favourite apartment where the beach is right across the road, the sushi is around the corner and we can spend the nights inside, with our glass of wine, watching TV in each others arms.

I think the return airfare is $200+/- each! Plus accomodation is a lot cheaper too!

We've decided..... to SPOIL ourselves!!!! Were getting married in December and have booked a tour of Europe in March. I would have loved to go straight after the wedding but because of the cold weather no tours run at this time.
We will problery just have a few days away down south straight after our wedding.
You have the rest of your life to work and put money towards your home, your only going to get your honeymoon once!!! Can you seriously see you both planning a major holiday after your married for no reason?
I say go and spoil yourself and enjoy it!! You only live once!!!

I'm sooooo glad we did - we had an AMAZING time and it was worth every cent!! We loved it so much we were planning on going back this November for a short trip - needless to say, that's not happening, so a good thing we decided to have a great holiday as part of our honeymoon!

We rented an apartment for one week ($500.00!!!!) and we were well looked after by the owners!!! We drove up, stopping at Lakes Entrance and Eden on the way which are both gorgeous towns on the coast line.
We spent our days (and sometimes nights) walking along the beaches (hardly anyone was there so it was wonderful to have the beach to ourselves), whale watching which was fantastic, going to wineries and just enjoying the simple things in life. It was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had together which was great since organising the wedding was so exhausting.
Another reason why we decided to do this is because we are wanting to buy a house by the end of this year, so we can start a family next year and we were (at the time) so close to a deposit we could taste it. When we have kids, (and they are old enough) we are going to go travelling around Australia because how exciting would that be sharing those moments with your family..
