We can not figure out what we want to do either. I have a fear of being on a plane so that crosses ALOT off our list we are either going to stay close to home and do all the “tourist” things we never have time to do and just have fun being together or do a cruise.

We are also trying to figure out where we want to go! Our first option was costa rica… but then we found out august is their rainy season, and to be in a rain forest during their rainy season doesnt sound too appealing! what time of year did you visit there?

I think we may end up doing a secrets or sandals all-inclusive, and just purchasing travelers insurance. Our other option right now is a mediterranean cruise, but the only reason we are deciding against that is because it would be so busy and we kinda just want to relax on the beach with a drink.

I never realized what a tough decision it would be to plan a honeymoon around this time of year! I’m sure it will all work out and we’ll have fun no matter where we go 🙂

Hawaii for us! We always wanted to do St. Lucia until we discovered August was peak hurricane season!

PLUS- August is Hawaii’s slow season- so you’ll be able to snag lower rates and avoid crowds!

@Silverblade:

We’re going to try to go to Turks and Caicos but it may end up being to expensive :o( We’ve alread decided to postpone the honeymoon a month because it’s cheaper, and my Maid/Matron of Honor is gettig married in September. We’ll see what happens, hopefully T&C works out because the Beaches resort looks amazing!

If you want Mexico, stick to the west coast.  We went to Puerto Vallarta for our honeymoon and Cabo for our anniversary and it was sunny and hot!

We are doing our honeymoon in November instead of right after the wedding. We want to go to an all inclusive, so we would like to go when the weather is crappy here! Not sure where we are going to go. It’s always been my dream to go to a Sandals resort (I’m leaning towards St. Lucia), but nothing is set in stone. We are just going to take a few days holiday after the wedding, probably at the resort we are getting married at.

I think we are going to Canada for a few days, then on to somewhere hot – maybe Bali? I love the idea of Bora Bora too.

I agree about Costa Rica. The rains are not all what people think. They are warm and come in the late afternoons. They don’t seem to get in anyone’s way! We loved it there. Found this awesome All Inclusive. they were so helpful. They answered 100 questions and made it all very easy. The place was like a dream and had everything we both wanted. <3

Have an incredible time wherever you go!
