@jpalm13:  You can snorkel in Europe. Go to Greece and the surrounding islands. Or around Spain.

Search for red eye flights. 

FH and I have a honeymoon planned for Costa Rica that ends on Memorial Day weekend. I purchased the flight tickets months ago to keep costs down, and we’re also flying during some pretty horrific hours, but we’ll take it easy the first day there, and first day back home.

Why not just change when you go? It seems silly to be thinking your honeymoon can’t happen over one vacation day.

Also, I vote go to Europe. The Caribbean has horrible, spoiled, 95% dead coral reefs due to over fishing, pollution, and too many tourists. Pretty much everywhere else on Earth with coral reefs has better snorkeling than the Caribbean (been to 28 countries and counting).

I have always wanted to go to Greece. Island hopping would be amazing.

You might want to do a bit of research into it, though, but there are lots of beachy type places in Europe.

This blogger did a honeymoon in Greece/Italy, her photos are amazing:

Wait a week or two and then go on your honeymoon when it’s not a holiday weekend.  I did that with my first wedding because we got married during Spring Break when prices for cruises were over $1200 for a 7 day.  We sailed a month a half later for half the price ($600!) on the same ship with the same itinerary.  Sometimes it pays to wait.  Not to mention, there was no post-wedding stress trying to catch a plane or dealing with a layover while hungover from the reception.

TO @jpalm13:  look at going to The Florida Keys… not nearly as expensive as flying to the Caribbean or Europe.

The money you save can be spent on some posh accommodations and fabulous meals out !!

Fly into Key West… or for a bit of an adventure… fly into Fort Lauderdale (Miami is a ZOO !!).  Rent a car and then drive down… the drive is incredibly beautiful… along the Overseas Highway.

The cool thing about The Keys is “it feels like you are in the Caribbean”… but you are still in the Continental USA… so all the good stuff that you find in the Caribbean, AND all the things you are familiar with here at home.

Hope this helps,
