    We spent about £1,400 on a week long break in Norway. Kviknes Hotel, Belastrand, absolutely wonderful time.

    Just got back last Wednesday from mine. We spent 4 nights in Las Vegas, then 8 nights in Kaua'i (Hawaii) and then 2 nights in LA. Vegas was great but our time in Kaua'i was incredible, its such a beautiful place and the people are fantastic.

    The whole trip cost £4400 but then we stayed in really nice hotels (Bellagio, Grand Hyatt Regency and The Beverly Hilton).

    Spent our wedding night in a 5* hotel - but back to work the day after!
    We didn't have a honeymoon - our first holiday as a married couple (which will be almost 16months after the big day!!) will be going to SXSW in Texas, hopefully followed by a few days in LA, with a road trip in between!

    Just gotten back from mine, 5k Mini Suite on Oceana P&0 around the Western Med, was excellent!! :D

    Had an amazing time. Food on board was super and was really cool going to bed one night and waking up in another port the next day :D

    Here's a great site for getting cheap hotel rooms - www.priceline.co.uk. This summer I spent a week in Barcelona, stayed in a centrally located 4* hotel with a swimming pool on the roof for about 1/3 of what it should've cost me. Just remember to use their Name Your Own Price option.

    Two days in Sicily, four days on the Aolean Islands, a week in Tuscany and Umbria followed by a couple of days in Rome. Think it was about £1500.

    2 nights in Hong Kong
    5 nights in Sydney (5.5 days due to flight times)
    4 nights in Adelaide
    4 nights in Melbourne
    1 night in Singapore

    Cost us just over £3k for flights and hotels, then about £1.5k spending money.
    Obviously not 'worth the money' but I've always wanted to go to Australia and it was a great holiday.

    We spent a week in the south of France.

    A friend of mine let us use his holiday home as a wedding present so we only paid for flights, car hire and expenses out there.

    Had a great time :)

    In this order:

    New York (4 days) > Miami (2 days) > Caribean Cruise (1 week) > Philadelphia (4 days)

    Price: 5k+ but staying in top hotels and the Cruise was top notch with balcony etc.

    Take Gill to the zoo Neil.

    If you're lucky you might be able to leave her there with the other animals.

    If I were getting married (which lets face it isn't going to happen any time soon, you know me!), I'd think carefully about going from one side of America to the other, or Japan / Aus way.

    Remember it's a once in a lifetime trip, it's a celebration and a rest period away from the stresses of your marriage. So make sure it's something the pair of you want to do :)
