- Wedding: August 2012
So here’s the deal: the FH and I are from Portland, OR and are getting hitched Sept. 19 ’09- and are hopelessly stuck on what to do for our honeymoon. Our budget is $3000, and we’d like to be gone for 7-10 days. Here’s what we’ve been considering:
1. We got engaged in Kauai, so a return to HI would be romantic, yes?But then what island or resort? Or do we take a cruise?
2. Neither one of us has been on a cruise, but we’re worried about wracking up a serious alcohol bill on our trip. Do they do all-inclusive cruises? Would a Mexican Riviera cruise be hurricane free, and still ‘tropical’?
3. We’d love to stay at an all-inclusive in the Carribean, but we’re getting married in (what I’ve been told is) peak hurricane season. We’ve thought about delaying the honeymoon for a few weeks after the wedding, but does that really get us out of the woods? And then there’s deciding on what island, and what all-inclusive resorts are good deals!
4. Can anyone recommend good websites for all-inclusives?
I’ll spare you the rest, but I’m pretty overwhelmed. Ideally we’d love to stay on the beach, do some horseback riding and swimming-with-dolphins, but those places can be hard to narrow down – or fit in our budget 🙂
I’d really appreciate some feedback on places you’ve stayed, where you’re going for your honeymoon, or any tips to help me narrow down our options!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
