Lmizzle:  I think it really depends on what you want to experience. The options you list are quite different… so I’d say it makes sense to first figure out what KIND of honeymoon you’d like to do: 

Beach?  

City trip? 

City trip + landscape? 

I think Paris can be a bit overwhelming in August when it’s still quite hot; i prefer doing city trips either in spring or fall… <br />Ireland is lovely but would be a very different experience (more nature, not a “beach-vacation” per se; ) from chosing Aruba…

  • Wedding: August 2014

Lmizzle:  We are getting married in August too but we decided to stay fairly local but spend more on the hotels and meals. Eat places we would not be able to justify normally.

We have alimited budget and do not really want to have to deal with the heat of europe during August. We went to Rome a couple of years ago and only just survived due to the water fountains everywhere (FI complained about heat the whole time and then mozzie bites)

We see it that we may only have one honeymoon, it should be different and memorable but doesn’t need to be the best holiday in our marriage. We have the rest of our lived to save up and have those romatic city breaks and visit those exotic beach resorts.

After all aren’t you meant to spend more time in the hotel room than sightseeing

  • Wedding: April 2012

My husband and I waited almost a year to go on our honeymoon to Morocco and Paris.  This enabled us to save up money and vacation time to go on 2.5 week trip.  It helped that we didn’t travel at peak season and the plane ticket to Paris was basically the same price as going to Paris and Morocco.  We obviously got a lot more bang for our buck in Morocco and stayed in an airbnb in Paris to save on accommodations.

We went on a short minimoon to the Catskills right after we got married, which was super nice.
