@MarthaMason: Congratulations on your engagement!!

We eloped to a different country and spent almost 2 weeks!  Not a month though, but I wish we could have!  There are so many things we did not get to see, but will save it for our 5th anniversary when we go back.

We went to the Canadian Rockies.  We love mountains in fact my requirement was to get married looking at mountains.  We hiked every day of our vacation including the day of the wedding.  A month would have been great!  Alas we did not want to use ALL our vacation time in one trip as we usually do lots of little trips througout the year.

@MarthaMason:  I’m a Canadian gal and was thrilled to see someone eloped in the Rockies! As for you, beach lover…there are so many amazing places to consider: Costa Rica (SO much to do there, especially if you like adventure, plus lots of beach time possible), Vietnam (STUNNING!!!), Thailand (Changhai is incredible, the Phi Phi islands are gorgeous but very touristy), the Mayan Riviera in Mexico is beautiful. Have you considered California? Loads to do! Fly into Vegas, get married, then road trip it to the west coast! Napa Valley, San Fran, oh goodness, I could go on and on!

@Toronto2014:  The Canadian Rockies are pretty spectacular!  It was hard to narrow down a plan with all the options.

@MarthaMason:  How about a vacation house rental?  You could rent a new one every week or one for the whole month!  I often browse vacation homes and dream of fun locations.
