I don’t know about everyone else but wedding planning can sometimes stress me out, I think it’s just because I am the one paying for the wedding. To get my mind off of things I sometimes just sit back and think about how fantastic our honeymoon is going to be. Due to my work schedule we cannot take our honeymoon until October, even though we are getting married in June. Sometimes I feel that will make it better.
Anyways, my question is to everyone, where are you going on your honeymoon?

We took our honeymoon in October (’08) as well in the American Southwest. We spent 2 night in Las Vegas, 2 nights at the Grand Canyon and 1 week in Sedona, AZ.
We really enjoyed Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon, but Sedona was a little too touristy for us.
Depending on where you go, October can be a great time to travel. Because the summer travel season is over, some places aren’t as crowded (with kids back in school, etc).

We are going to Moon Palace in Cancun it is the same place where we got engaged. It is beautiful and all-inclusive, it was two swim up bars and 12 restaurants, with island pools throughout. It is not on the strip which is really nice but, the water is not nice on the beach because of all the seaweed. It is inexpensive to go for airfare and accomodations it is less the $3,000. On top of all that they give you two excursions, massage, pedicure, and manicure. I just love it there! we are taking my son with us and our mom’s might come too, the more the merrier. Do you have any ideas as to where you would like to go or what type of honeymoon you want?

We were going to go to the Seychelles, but ticket prices just haven’t come down like we were hoping for… so we’ve revised our expectations and are hopefully going to go to Serengeti Natn’l Park in Tanzania, and then spend a week in Zanzibar. Tickets were half the price of Seychelles and only a few hundred dollars more than the Carribean!

We went to Secrets Capri in November of ’08…. it’s in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and it was fantastic!!! Its an all inclusive and everything was top-notch – the food, the drinks, the rooms, the service… we can’t wait to go back for our anniversary some day!

San Francisco for 5 days, then 4 days in Santa Cruz where we met and a couple of days in Monterey. I’m really looking forward to the large amounts of delicious vegetarian food we’ll get to eat 🙂

We are going to Turkey. Fiance and I wanted a place that neither of us had been, had beaches, had historical places to visi/tour (we are dorks like that) and was a little different than typical honeymoons. We were going to plan it ourselves but then found this fantastic website where you submit your desired location, budget, specific things you want to do, etc. and then get proposals like lending tree but for travel agents.

Australia and New Zealand. Haven’t booked it yet. I’m still earning my airline miles so we won’t have to pay for the ticket. We are also getting room gifted to us by my future brother in law. I hope it will be fun! I hope for a 2 week vacation!

We did Sandals, Ocho Rios, Jamaica and it was AMAZING. I’d never been catered to and pampered that much in my life. We had a private villa with our own pool and a butler. The food was wonderful and the staff was the most helpful and courteous ever!

SR, your post made me smile. We also went on our honeymoon months after our wedding and, yes, it was better. We were so relaxed! The other couples who were fresh from the wedding were so stressed out, it made us laugh. We went to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, but you didn’t tell us where you were going.
