We’re going to Hawaii! We have our accomodations picked out and will book sometime in Jan. We’ll probably buy plane tickets around Easter. According to our travel agent, thats when tickets are cheapest.

The mister is in charge of honeymoon plans. I only ask that it is relaxing, warm, and beautiful. I know he’s done some research, but we haven’t made any decisions yet. 

@ Fall In Love22, Thanks for the tip. Hopefully we will make some decisions and be able to get flights then.

Yep. We had already decided we wanted to go to Yellowstone, and the lodging there fills up really far in advance. So we actually made reservations immediately after we booked our venue/date, a few months ago.  We still haven’t booked flights or figured out an exact itinerary, but at least we know we’ll have somewhere to stay.

We’ve been talking about honeymoon plans but nothing is set in stone yet. We are thinking Turkey and Cyprus. Anybody been to either place? We haven’t booked our tickets yet but I’m thinking we will soon because we want to fly on points. We want to go away for 3-4 weeks if our jobs allow, I’m hoping it will be our last big vacation for awhile because we are hoping to TTC after.

Like Crabbs my Fiance is in charge of our honeymoon plans. It’ll be less stress on me and I’m all for being surprised (as long as when we get off that plan we are somewhere in the South Pacific ie.Fiji or Bora Bora Tongue Out)

I completely trust him and hey it’s one less thing for me to have to deal with.

@MrsDiddles: my FH loves Fiji, he was there 10 years ago on a vacation before continuing on to Australia to work (I also worked in Auz, but my stopovers were never so elegant). We’re about 30% looking at Fiji though, because it would mean a lot of travel time.

We’re 70% looking at going to an all-inclusive somewhere in the Leeward Antilles (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao) because late September is the start of hurricane season and that area is out of the hurricane pathway.

Italy!! 1 week in Milan, 1 week in Rome. Maybe a day trip to Venice. Haven’t started planning outside of Wikipedia-ing some places that I know I want to check out.

We are considering the same thing! We haven’t really started planning it yet, and fiance is taking care of the honeymoon anyway, he says. Hopefully, I’ll just have to show up!

We’re having a dilemma.

On the one hand, I want to go some place “different”, since our honeymoon will be 2 weeks, and we usually vacation 3-5 day vaca and don’t travel too far…

On the other hand, I want to go someplace that is true and tried … we do have a couple of favorite romantic spots – Los Cabos Hilton, St Lucia Anse Chasetenet, Curacao Marriott…

So do we go someplace exotic different like Fiji?

My must haves are great, great food, some kind of night life, beach, nice room, great service

His must haves are ability to go scuba diving

Obviously he’s easier to please Wink

we’re going to Spain (haven’t decided between Madrid or Barcelona as our homestay yet – any thoughts?) for 3-5 days and then taking a mediterrenean cruise. 

anyone else thinking along these same lines? 

i have no notion of when we should start booking but the easter suggestion sounds like a good one.

More dreaming than actual planning lol. We’ve decided on an upscale all inclusive somewhere in the Caribbean – we don’t really want to do much except lay around on the beach, in hammocks, and of course in the room hehe.  Being able to completely unwind and not having to worry about expenses would be perfect for us for this trip – we’ll do some real traveling another time 🙂

@sarahbabs: Yeah, I think we’re leaning towards and all-inclusive now. At first, I wanted to go to Europe for an adventure, but I think that will be a big hassle and will require more planning than we’re willing to put into it. An adventure will definitely have to happen before we have kids, but I’m not sure the honeymoon will be the time to do it.

ETA: No concrete planning has taken place yet.

we just booked our honeymoon- we’re going to jamaica for 10 days!  we’ll be staying at Couple’s Swept Away in Negril for 6 days then heading over to Couples Sans Souci in Ochos Rios for 4 days.  we couldn’t decide between the two resorts so we decided to do both!  we’re leaving the morning after our wedding.. should be interesting haha.

our travel agent was awesome if anyone is in need of one- her name is sandra from Easy Escapes Travel.  we got super low prices and some honeymoon perks, like room upgrades.  love her.
