^^^While the Keys are beautiful, August is actually the HEIGHT of hurricane season.

Ivygal, what type of destination are you looking for? Tropical beach, mountains, etc.? Keep in mind that south of the Equator the seasons are flipped, so you could actually go skiing in South America if you wanted to!

We haven’t really planned our honeymoon yet. we’re trying to see where our wedding budget comes in at first. We don’t have much money so we’ll have to see how much is left after all is said and done. We’re hoping to have a fun filled few days in sunny San Diego and then take a tropical getaway for our one-year anniversary.

Our plan, as long as we can stay safely in the wedding budget, is the Mediterranean. We’re thinking flying into Barcelona and going through the French Riviera, Italy, Dalmatian Coast and Greece. That may change though, we both like less structured travel best (so no luxury-all-inclusive stuff). Late August and September are some of the best times to fly and stay cheaper since the summer vacationers are generally done but the weather’s still great!

Ivygal,

If you’re getting married near the end of August, you might consider looking into a European honeymoon.  September is generally less expensive because it’s past the busy summer season, but the weather is still nice.  I just did a quick Expedia search and found a package including airfare for two to Paris and seven nights in a four-star Parisian hotel for only $4000.  And there are plenty of beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean that will be cheaper than Paris.

Good luck and have fun!

We are gonna roll the dice and go to Dominica in the carribean…

and if we get hit with a hurricaine and survive, then we should be able to survive anything together! (just kidding, seriously hoping for no storms to hit while we are there).

We haven’t booked yet, so we may still change our minds, but I’m pretty sure this is where we are going to end up.

–Crash,

 While you’re in that area, you can consider going to Majorca or Minorca, which are Islands right off of Spain. They’re the "Hawaii" of Spain! We went to Majorca two years ago (also spelled Mallorca) and it was beautiful, but we went in March so it wasn’t as pretty because it was still off season and a bit cold. Anyway, have fun!

Our wedding was August 2008 and we honeymooned at Sandals, Ocho Rios in Jamaica — it was PERFECT!!!  We loved it so much that we booked a return trip for our honeymoon before we left.  Our honeymoon pics are at http://www.singhiphotos.shutterfly.com if you are interested in seeing the location.
