Any suggestions? Any bees gone for their honeymoon? We were all set to go ahead with our destination wedding but, well Future Father-In-Law wasn’t having it.
Any and all European suggestions would be great!

I’ve been to Marbella Spain! I think Spain is fabulous, rich in culture and has a variety of weather and surroundings, depending on what you guys are looking forward too.
I’m a bit biased 😉 but Buenos Aires, Argentina has a super European feel and its currently gearing up for summer down their if you want some warm weather during our “fall/winter”
Is your honeymoon in September of next year?

It is- we’re looking to do about 10 days in mid-September. FI has never been to Europe, and we’re mildly obsessed with Anthony Bordain’s no reservations. Every time he goes somewhere, we need to go! I mentioned Tuscany, but he’s really into the idea of Spain. I thought Mallorca would be a nice option for a honeymoon because you still get a bit of “beachiness.”
I didn’t think about Argentina- I can’t imagine why you’re biased 🙂 We like interesting food and wine. I”m not sure if we’re foodies, but I’d like to pretend to be. Do you think its ok for non-spanish speakers? Is that a wildly ignorant statement?

I LOVE Spain. I would move there in a heartbeat. I’m more biased toward Spain than Buenos Aires, only because, there’s a reason my family left. The weather is Spain is much more favorable honeymoon weather, as well as the beaches. 10 days is fabulous time to city hop too. You could do 5 days in one place and 5 in another.
However, I do think as a non-spanish speaker, you should try to communicate. I find people who at least try get more respect from the locals.

Oh, absolutely. We always try to muddle our way through something with our 20 spanish vocab words or learn a few local phrases. I’m always surprised at the french I retained from hs/college when push comes to shove.
I just know there are some places, more off the beaten path, where not being at least moderately fluent can make things more difficult. Not that Buenes Aires is “off the beaten path”- I just don’t know anything about it.
Thanks for the words of encouragement- I know this will require a bit more work than just picking an island, but I like that!
