It looks like we’ve narrowed it down to Costa Rica, hopefully for 9 or 10 days. We’re going to split our time between the two coasts so that we have both relaxing beach time, and some adventure! Haven’t booked anything yet, but in the serious research stage.
Where are you other June brides jetting off to post-wedding?

so glad you started this thread- i was eager to hear other ideas. We were thinking about Costa Rica too. We are looking for a mix of relaxing and culture …here’s our list as of now
1. Greece- Santorini and Athens
2. Thailand – Bangkok and Ko Samui
3. South of France/ Spain
So far Greece is the most pratical/ affordable.

Ooo I really wanted to go to Greece. Santorini was on my short list, but then I realized how expensive it will be in peak summer travel season. We’ve pretty much decided on Hawaii, now just have to pick an island. Looks like it is between Maui and Kauai at the moment. Can’t wait to hear where everyone is going!

- Wedding: June 2008 - Winery in the Gold Country
I’m an old June bride (2008) but we went to Excellence (all inclusive) Playa Mujeres near Cancun. We loved it! It did rain a few days, but the tropical rain is so warm and refreshing, it didn’t put a damper on our days in the least. We’d sit on our balcony outside and read and watch the rain. It was lovely! Don’t let tropical rain turn you off from choosing a honeymoon locale (although hurricanes are probably a dif. story) 🙂 !

We are actually going to eastern Europe, but only because my FH has never left the country and he’s obsessed with seeing Germany. June is a pretty good month to go almost anywhere, so we’re pretty fortunate from that perspective.
marylizbeth – I’ve been to bangkok and Ko Phuket and have to say it was the best and most beautiful place/vacation I have ever seen/taken. If I could talk my FH into it, that’s where we’d be going!

- Wedding: May 2018 - Hotel Vitale
We went in June to Panama- it was AMAZING. Just as great, if not cheaper, than Costa Rica. I’ll be posting about it after the recaps or PM me with questions.

We are staying in the country and heading to Florida for 10 days.

We’re looking into the Riviera Maya, but after reading these posts, I’m going to suggest researching some of these places!

FI really wanted to go to St. Lucia, but its hurricane season in the Caribbean, so we decided on Greece. Crete, Santorini and Athens. We leave the first week of June for two weeks. Its not quite high season prices yet, but the weather should be just perfect… with no risk of hurricanes on the honeymoon!

Thanks for all the ideas everyone! FI and I are really at a loss of where to go. We have some other trips in July as well, so our honeymoon needs to be really affordable. Right now we are thinking San Juan or somewhere in Mexico (depending on the political environment when it gets closer)

I really wanted to go to South America and was particularly interested in Costa Rica. But FI pushed for Thailand and now we are pretty much settled on going there. Like MaryElizabeth we are looking for a good week of culture combined with a few days of relaxation… We also considered Italy, Turkey, Japan…

- Wedding: June 2010 - Tannery Pond at the Darrow School
I’m confused, I thought I commented on this thread a day or two ago…hmmmmm…well, anyways, we were originally thinking about going to Brazil but now sort of in the mindset of holding off on that trip for our 1st wedding anniverserary and just going to the Carribbean for a true relaxing vacay, rather than actually travelling…plus, it will give me something to look forwward to once the wedding’s over!

@ runrgurl – you probably did post on this thread…I believe hotchild created this thread accidentally in June 2009 first and then restarted it in 2010…So there is a double thread going on.
Post # 15
Yes, sorry! I did accidentally post this in 2009 and hoped it would be deleted :o( I hope it keeps going in here because there’s some really great ideas!
We’re hoping to miss any sort of bad weather in Costa Rica. I think it’s sort of their rainy season, but I heard it’s like Miami, where it pours for like 10 minutes and then it’s all good ;o)

We’re going to California! We’re going to stay in my home town for a few days so that the Mr can meet friends and family that didn’t make it to the wedding and so he can see where I grew up and why i love it so much. Then we’ll spend the rest of the time at Manhattan beach!
