April 2013 Weddings

We get a honeymoon!!!

We're having a destination wedding in Savannah, Ga and while the wedding itself is small and I'm doing a lot of DIY, the airfare, rental car, and hotel costs are killing us!  Because of this, I wasn't sure if we'd be able to afford a honeymoon. 

FI wanted to spend a few days in Charleston, SC after the wedding, but there was no way we could afford it - our wedding coincides with something called Race Week and the hotels have jacked up their prices to ridiculous levels.  There went our honeymoon.

A friend suggested researching vacation rentals and I was able to find a reasonably priced one.  After exchanging a few emails, the owner not only said the property was available but she's knocking almost half the cost off because she usually rents by the month, but someone rented a month and a half, so the first half of April is open and she didn't think she'd be able to rent it.  (Another catch - it's 20 minutes from Charleston, but we really don't mind that since we're further than that from Chicago so driving is no big deal.)

Long story short, our "familymoon" will be in a 3 bedroom cottage with an inground pool, screened in porch, lots of amenities, and a quiet location away from the hustle & bustle (and huge cost) of the big city.  YAY!!!  FI is going to be SO excited when he hears this!

  • Yay, that sounds awesome!

  • Yes!!!  I <3 Charleston and I don't have any doubt that you will, too :-)  I'm having my bachelorette party there in March.  Are you staying at the beach?

  • 20 minutes out of Charleston? So Summterville? Or closer to Savannah?
  • Wow! Yay!! I'm glad it worked out for you and it sounds like a better deal than a hotel suite anyway! :) It sounds much more relaxing and fun!
