Are you doing or thinking of something unusual msflowerball? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

We’re headed to Easter Island, which I think is a bit out of the ordinary for a honeymoon, at least in our area. It’s in the Pacific but isn’t your typical “south pactific” island. Most people in our area go to Jamaica (which is fine if an all inclusive is what you want). I’m beyond pumped because I’ve always always wanted to go there, and to get to share it with my husband willl make it 10 times better.

More thread replies, please! ๐Ÿ™‚ (i’m almost more excited about the honeymoon than the wedding) haha

We’re going to Vegas, does that count?? Not so unusual, but it’s not the typical tropical honeymoon that everyone seems to take ๐Ÿ™‚ October isn’t the best time to go to the Caribbean, and we’d get bored after a day of just sitting around on a beach. Neither of us have been to Vegas, so I’m excited ๐Ÿ˜€

Fiance and I are going on a road trip from GA to Portland, OR – where we’ll be moving after the wedding.

We live at the beach so we decided to go to the desert! We’re going to Arizona to a golf and spa resort.

My Fiance and I are renting/purchasing an RV and taking a month to drive all across the country. I’m so excited, as there are OODLES of National Parks we want to see.

Fiance and I are deciding on the most romantic places in the world “theme”. We will be deciding between the following:

1. Venice, Italy – Gondolas, intimate cafes, rented villa which is cheaper than the hotels.

2. Casablanca, Morocco – Casablanca, bedouin tent hotel in the dessert

3. Agra, India – Taj Mahal, built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his wife, Mumtaz Mahal

4. Turkey – Ancient ruins, blue Mediterrean waters on white beaches, private bungalows.

@exoticmariee: OH MAN those are your choices? I am officially a jealous green monster!

We’re going to Quebec City (approx. 10 hours away), which is such a romantic city, but not very popular in our area because it is relatively close, and many people have already visited during school trips.

@ceamoste: Don’t be! We did the pricing on some of these trips and found that they cost about the same or less than other traditional honeymoon spots. When you “honeymoon” in certain countries they bend over backwards for you. I am leaning towards Morocco or Turkey because I found that there is a special invitation for newly married women. It appears to be a henna, spa, sauna treatment and I want it!

We’re going to drive about 13 hours to Virginia and then spend a night in DC on the way home.  We wanted to go out of the country for our honeymoon, but that was unrealistic for us due to cost.  We’re planning on trying to save to go to Europe or on a cruise for our first anniversary.

We are flying into Bergen, Norway, and driving to a teeny tiny town called Ortnevik for our honeymoon.  Everyone we tell looks at us like we’re crazy, but we are beyond excited!  The scenery is so gorgeous there.

We’re going to Belize, still a tropical honeymoon, but not the usual Mexico/DR/Bahamas/Jamaica deal. Also, we are going to be renting a private house instead of going to a resort.

@exoticmariee: Having gone to Italy for my honeymoon (so amazing!) I’d absolutely recommend it, but not the whole time in Venice.  Venice is great, but it’s so crowded that it doesn’t feel as intimate as you’d want for a honeymoon.  If you want to go, I’d recommend flying into Venice, staying for 3 days or so, and then taking a train down to Tuscany for the rest of the trip.  It’s so much quieter and more serene, the scenery is breathtaking, and you feel much more in touch with the Italian culture (as opposed to Venice whose culture is tourism).  Just my thoughts, but all the destinations on your list sound fantastic!
