I know it is super early, but I am so excited to plan my honeymoon, I started investigating destinations. However, I have found September comes during the rainy season for some islands. Does anyone have any experience traveling to beachy destinations in September??

We had a great time in Cancun in October- a little rain, but only for a day. Beautiful weather, perfect beach time. We spent the entire week outside. Maybe Riviera Maya, if you feel like Cancun is too spring break-y?

@JessiTask: this is a great question and I would love to know the same thing!!! I was talking to someone recently about Turks & Caicos and Aruba and they were saying that Aruba is a much safer bet…the weather is pretty much always great there….I’d love to know more though.

I think Aruba is a pretty safe bet year round. I loved it when I was there, although it was in June.

We ran into the same problem. We want to go to Thailand but Sept/Oct is monsoon seaon, so thats not cool!!! So we are going to go to Las Vegas for a few days right after the wedding and then go to Thailand in February 2013. Two honeymoons 🙂 I like the idea of that.

We vacationed in Aruba in Oct and loved it. the weather was perfect. We may land up going back for the honeymoon for that reason.

We are thinking Italy/Greece – there are beachy destinations in both countries, and you’re heading away from the Carribean where there could be hurricanes, etc.
I’ve always heard Aruba is amazing and I think their motto is One Happy Island – everyone I’ve known who’s gone there has adored it.
I think this is my favorite decision to make during wedding planning 🙂

FH and I have both heard that the Dutch West Indies (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao, and others) is relatively protected from hurricanes.
Our plan is to look for the availability and pricing of last-minute deals THIS year, to give us an idea if we should book early, or wait and snap up a deal next year and also be able to check the weather.

I think its important to research the actual weather…we visited Costa Rica during the rain season and most days it just rained for about an hour in the afternoon…which was fine since most of the tours were scheduled in the morning anyways…we are also thinking Thailand!
