Okay I’ve narrowed it down to two places! Aruba (leaning towards) or St. Lucia. Let me know what you think, and why you think it! Also if you know of any amazing tropical destinations with awesome beaches and snorkeling that also has good weather in October let me know! (No Hawaii, been there) Thanks! Where are you guys Honeymooning?

I’ve never been to either of those places but we’re looking at Hawaii (but you’ve been there so ignore that, lol) and Curacao. =)

i think october might be the height of hurricane season, so i would say no on st. lucia. go to aruba, which is below the hurricane belt.
costa rica’s pacific coast would be a good choice too!

We are getting married at the same time ( yay) and were thinking of the same places as you ( we both must have done our research haha) but also Dominican republic. I’m not sure what your budget is but your money can go far in the DR and there are a lot of all inclusives. It came down to DR and Aruba for us and we chose DR because of the great AI ( we didnt want to have to worry about anything) and all of the fun things to do there. DR is not effected by the weather like the caribean is so its safe for October.
Let me know if you have any questions!

my coworker had her honeymoon planned a fwe novembers ago… they were going to st. lucia and had to make alternate plans less than a week before the wedding bc of hurricane damage!

We are going to Antigua. We just booked a few weeks ago and we can’t wait!! As for where you should go, its kinda up to you. We ruled out st Lucia for our honeymoon because a co-worker just stopped at the Sandals resort that we were looking into and she didn’t have many good things to say about it. The only advice I have for you is go out to TripAdvisor.com. It can be your best friend.

I hear a lot of good things about Aruba. I say flip a coin or draw a name out of a hat and see which one it lands on, lol. It makes a great story on how did you pick your honeymoon.
@Handful: I agree with you. TripAdvisor.com is my fav travel website. I even used it to help with our honeymoon.

St. John is GORGEOUS and awesome snorkling along with a really cool bar by the cruise ship terminal where you sit in actual swings.
We are leaving on our Honeymoon Cruise October 7th and going to Belize, Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Mohigany Bay, Isla Roatan 🙂

Ahh i was JUST going to make this thread because when i searched I only came up with 3-year-old threads. I’m really curious to see where other October brides are going to honeymoon. I’m glad it popped up!
According to theknot.com, Australia, Bali, Belize, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, Central & South Africa, Egypt, Fiji, French Polynesia, Hawaii, Italy, Madagascar, Maldives, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Seychelles, Spain, USA are all good places to honeymoon in October.
I’d say try Aruba over St. John bc of hurricane season. We’re thinking Santorini or Croatia right now. But I can’t seem to make up my mind!
