  • Wedding: October 2011

My FH and I are going on a Royal Carribean 7 night Southern Carribean Cruise. We leave November 6th so it’s a couple of weeks after our wedding (10/22/11). Our ports of call are San Juan, Puerto Rico; Bridgetown, Barbados; Castries, St. Lucia; St. John’s, Antigua; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. We figured this was the best way to go because we get to go tour a lot of places, and do all kinds of fun activites in addition to being on the ship. We have an oceanview balcony and we are on the 8th deck right in the middle of the ship which is perfect. I can’t wait:)

We’re going on a 7 night Carnival cruise that leaves out of Baltimore which makes it super convenient for us! It goes to Port Canaveral, Florida; Freeport, Bahamas; and Nassau, Bahamas. We are going two weeks after our wedding since it leaves on a Sunday at like 3pm and our wedding is on a Sunday and doesn’t start until 2:30! We have a balcony and I can’t wait to be doing nothing in the middle of the ocean!

We are still absolutely sure what we are doing. My Fiance just got a job so we had been delaying deciding what to do. We will probably just take a few days and go to Savannah and take a real honeymoon next year.

Instead of going to Jamaca like we’d planned Fiance and I decided we would rather stop renting apartments.  So instead of a honeymoon, we’re building a brand new house on a 3+ acre lot!  We’re super excited about it! We don’t like together now anyway, so a brand new house all to ourselves will pretty much be a honeymoon for us.

I am so looking forward to our honeymoon. We are going on an Eastern Caribbean cruise leaving from Miami and stopping at Half Moon Cay, Bahamas; San Juan, PR; St. Thomas, USVI; Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands. I have been on two cruises and love them, Fiance has never been. We picked a cruise since it is hurricane season and they can generally get you out of the storms. Our plans are snorkeling, relaxing on the beach, eating good food and also a city tour of San Juan.

@STBSchmidt: I bet we are doing the same itinerary! I am really looking forward to the stops.

We’re delaying our honeymoon due to my school schedule until February (also, we live in Canada. Any excuse to go somewhere warm in February is a good excuse!). We’re going for 5 days to Tenerife, Canary Islands. My dad offered his timeshare for the week, so accomodations are free; we just have to pay for flights and food/shopping. We’re still trying to decide if we can take a weekend jaunt to Barcelona.

eeek! 🙂

Our wedding is on Saturday and we’ll be off to go on Honeymoon on Tuesday. We’ll be taking 15 days to Paris, Venice, Florence and Rome. I love Paris and that was where he proposed, so we’re returning to it for this honeymoon. 

We will be sightseeing, planning to have fine dining in Paris and Italy (haven’t decided where yet) and shopping in Italy.

Theese all look like really fun and romantic honeymoons!

We’re just staying in the Lake District (Uk!) for the week in a really nice holiday cottage, we might go on an abroad holiday latter in the year.

We’re going to Jamaica – leaving the Monday after the wedding, coming back the following Sunday.  I wanted beaches, and we considered Hawaii, but the travel time/cost were better in Jamaica, plus we got an all-inclusive with Tower Isle.  Can’t wait!

We’re going to fly home from our wedding in Oregon on Monday and leave Wednesday for our honeymoon somewhere in the Caribbean. We still haven’t decided where to go… maybe Curacao & Bonaire, Antigua, St. Lucia, St. Croix, or Dominican Repulic? As you can see, we haven’t really narrowed it down. I’m leaning towards Curacao/Bonaire as they are outside the usual hurricane belt…

Let me know if you have any ideas! 🙂

Wedding is Saturday, we are leaving to honeymoon on Tuesday.  We’ll do about 4 days in Napa, then bum around San Francisco a few days, then fly home and hang at home a few days before going back to work. 

Gonna try for French Laundry reservations, you can call 2 months out–that’s next week, crossing my fingers.

  • Wedding: December 2011

We pondered a billion different ideas. We’d LOVE to go back to Europe, but December isn’t a great time for that. We finally settled on Couples Tower Isle last week and placed our deposit down. 

I am soooooo excited. Can’t wait. We are going to need that vacation!

We have changed our minds so many times but for our mini moon we’re going to Savannah, GA for a week right after the wedding, and then we’re going to book something after the wedding for the honeymoon.  Bermuda and Costa Rica are a couple choices.  

Originally we were going to do Australia or NZ, but if we did that, we’d be gone for Christmas, and I was a little sad that we’d miss our first Christmas together as a married couple with our families.  So we’ll leave on Boxing day for a “smaller” trip!

We have finally finalized all of our plans!!  Heading to New Zealand South Island for 16 days touring through cities, fjords, wineries, and glaciers. We are planning a combo of hotels, camping, and staying in bed and breakfasts.  It is going to be an exhausting 36 hour flight to get there but we cant wait!!!!
