Thank you everyone for the great responses and information. I really appreciate it. I'll try to address everyone since so many took the time to help! --Sorry if this is a bit long, didn't want to leave anyone out. --It does appear we will be in the 4750-5K for the flights/hotels. Hopefully it wont be 5k more for food/transport, as I think over 10K might be too much.---This is based off of looking at hotels on booking.com and just looking at prices per day stretch. We haven't booked anything yet, but we think it will be around this amount.
@lyndlamb1 -- My Fiance really loves Charleston, so I'll have to mention this to her. We did talk a bit today and we will be dropping Venice as 4 is just not doable. Maybe we will go there for a daytrip or something, who knows. --We will be doing Open-Jaw, ---Going to London, leaving from Rome seems to be the best deal. We are not going to use a travel agent. I'll try to work with the Fiance and do everything ourselves. Thanks for the advice, I will look into the books and read more on this site. Appreciate your advice and ideas on hotels :)
@Bob--Thank you for the reference, I'll look into finding/aquiring this book.
@Beth -- Thank you!! Oh wow a balcony. I bet that's pricey. I'll take a look at your suggestions and see if I can fit these suggestions in :). ---We were actually thinking of doing a overnight sleepy train to Rome, not 100% sure yet, we might fly too. We are still contemplating.
@Jennifer-- It's a bummer that a lot of the trip seems to be traveling, but it's required I guess :P We did lower it to 3, I won't go below that though, I think we can do 3 :)! We are strong! I can't drop London or Rome, those two are absolutely required as we both picked one, and decided Paris is in the middle so we will check that out too. --Not 100% sure on the budget yet, but we are at around 5k for hotel/flights when doing a preliminary check. Which seems okay. The hotels weren't as pricey as we thought, apparently there are 5000000 hotels per city too, which is nice!
@I.p.enersen --Very true, I don't want to get killed :P. Thank you :)
@emma-- Haha, there seems to be quite a lot to see and do in London so I definitely am more interested in going now.
@TravelBug79 -- I actually saw that hotel mentioned somewhere else, or maybe it was here. Can't remember but we definitely will be checking into that. That's awesome. Maybe I do need to book these places with the knowledge that we are on our honeymoon. Freebies is always very nice! Thanks for the link! --Interesting, I had not thought to book direct, I do that for my Las Vegas trips sometimes, but did not think to try here. I'll see if it's more affordable that way. thank you for all your hotel advice :)
@Kathy-- Thank you so much! Duly noted and we will be taking Venice off, I wish we had more time, but alas. Hopefully we will be back :). I need to get advice on the best locations to stay as these cities seem huge, but public transport seems to be everywhere. I don't want to end up really far from everything though, so that may be my next goal of knowledge to obtain. Very sweet to hear of your memories:) I'm very excited to make some too!
