Enough wedding chat, lets talk about our honeymoons! What did everyone decide on and why? Anyone who has not decided yet? Are you leaving soon after your wedding or are you delaying some? What are some of your must see/eat/stay? Recommendations for others?
Fiance and I had our heart set on Hawaii until Fiance lost his job 3 months ago. In response, we’ve decided to delay our honeymoon by one month and travel to Key West and Walt Disney World. It will be Fiance first time to Key West and I am excited to show him one of my favorite vacation spots. Then, after much needed relaxation and alone time, we will head to WDW. This will be our third trip there as a couple. We went after we got engaged, so we thought it fitting to visit on our Honeymoon. Plus it will be the end of the Food & Wine Festival and the start of the Christmas season. Double score. Interestingly enough, the Disney portion of our trip is going to be a “Group-moon”. Fiance extended family will be down there and two of my bridesmaids and their husbands have also planned trips at this time. Should be a lot of fun.
Key West must’s for us: Mermaid & Alligator B&B stay. Latitudes & Seven Fish restaurants for romantic dinners. The Butterfly Nature Conservatory and Dry Tortugas for sights.
WDW must’s for us: French Quarter stay. Artist Point for our romantic dinner. And the Mickey’s Christmas Party for sights.

We decided to do 2 weeks in Greece for our honeymoon. We are doing a week on the “party” island and a week on a more secluded island. I am VERY excited!
We actually chose Greece because FI’s parents have a timeshare that only costs us $125.00 per week! Of course we still have to pay airfare and food/drinks/shopping. I have never been to Europe and my Fiance has been to Greece once and loved it 🙂

@RahlyRah: That’s an amazing deal!!
We got married Oct 09, and flew down to Puerto Rico and did a Caribbean cruise from there. We went to St Thomas, St Kitts, St Lucia, Dominica, Barbados, and Antigua. It was awesome!! There were actually a lot of honeymooners there, and we got pretty friendly with a few of them

We are leaving the day after our wedding for Boston. Spending a few days in Boston and then going to New Hampshire and Maine. This is where my Fiance grew up and I have never been north of New Jersey. We met in my hometown when we were 15 and I’m excited to see where he grew up and all the places he’s always talked about from his child. My future in-laws were not pleased with my choice, and tried to get us to go somewhere tropical/exotic because they claim the weather will be bad. We live in Florida and go to the beach all the time, so why would I want to spend my honeymoon doing that? Plus we’ve both been to the Caribbean and Europe. It’s our first time travelling on a plane together and I don’t do particularly well with them, I don’t want our first trip to be 9 hours of torture for him!
@mshoagie: I live in Orlando, have you thought about going to Sea World or Discovery Cove? I like Disney but Sea World is my favorite park. Their new roller coaster Manta is ah-mazing!

@DaniSue13: unfortunately we will only have a full three days in disney, so a side trip to sea world is not in the cards this time. however, we have both been there pretty recently and do enjoy. new england in the fall is lovely. sure it will be chilly, and maybe you will even see some snow, but like you said you get to see tropical weather and the beach all the time. it will be nice to explore your husbands old stomping grounds.

We are going to Savannah, GA for our mini moon the week after our wedding, and then we’re trying to decide where to go for our honeymoon leaving boxing day for 10ish days. Originally we thought we’d go to Australia, NZ, Kenya, something like that, but we decided to save that for when we can go for 2-3 weeks.

I love discussing our honeymoon! We are leaving the day after our wedding and going to Greece (Mykonos and Santorini) for 6 days and then Italy for 2 weeks!
In Greece we plan on relaxing a lot, but also partying a little on Mykonos, and exploring both islands. In Italy, we are going to eat and drink wine, while taking in the gorgeous views! We will do some site seeing as well, but for the most part we chose places that were not as “historical.”

We are leaving for the honeymoon right after the reception! I know I’ve posted it before, but it will be hectic! Our flight leaves at 6:30AM on Sunday the 16th and its a 2 hour drive to the airport….so we have to leave after the reception at like 1:30-2 in the morning! hahahaha We’ll leave the sleeping for the plane!
We are going to Couples Swept Away in Negril, Jamaica and I absolutely can’t wait! I already bought 2 dresses for it! 🙂

We are delaying quite a bit. 🙁 I am in grad school and can’t take more than a few days off and Fiance wants to be gone for a good week and a half at least. So we are going on a 7 day Eastern Caribbean cruise in May after I graduate. We actually have done an Eastern cruise together already but LOVED it and it was an awesome deal so why not? Plus we will spend a couple of days before the cruise in Miami so that will be a nice break from the snow I am sure we will still have here! Must dos: snorkeling, city tour of San Juan, and lots of eating ha ha!
