Miss Daffodil posted about her honeymoon in Moorea (next to Bora Bora), and how she was able to cut costs.

But yes those are generally very expensive, albeit fabulous destinations!

Oooh, those are all on my wishlist too!  I’ve only been to French Polynesia several times, all on trips with friends since my college BFF is from there.  It’s absolutely gorgeous, and super remote so it would be great for a romantic getaway. 

For our group trips, we actually found excellent deals on travelzoo.com since we were looking for trips over winter break… the "rainy season" is heavily discounted, but we got maybe 30 min of warm rain in the middle of the afternoon most days of the 7 we were there, and that’s about it.

however, it looks like you’ll be going a little earlier in the year– I’d suggest checking out the forums at flyertalk.com.  They have really recent info on the latest deals, and I know for a lot of resorts, you can buy a $150 membership that will get you free room upgrades and a bunch of other stuff, so you recoup the cost easily the first night.

Good luck planning!
