My love and I are getting married Friday, June 27th and have the following 9 days off work to do whatever we want. We were originally gong to take a camping trip with the whole family, but it was cancelled because my dear future-Mother-in-law decided she wanted to take a cruise in 2009 instead. Great.
So… We would like to take a mini-vacation (honeymoon, if you will) to a warm place. We’re looking for some place that is very inexpensive (we’re on an extremely tight budget), but still warm and beachy. Also, we’d prefer not to go somewhere where the weather is less than desirable (like Jamaica during hurricane season, for example :))

What about Jekyll Island, off the coast of Georgia?

I just came back from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and had a blast! We stayed at the Royal Solaris for 6 nights. Our travel package included hotel, airfare, food, beverages, alcohol, taxes, and gratuity. You can find great deals on travelzoo.com.

Dominican Republic usually has some pretty cheap deals and apparently it’s a blast – I haven’t been but my sister has (on a student’s budget) and she loved it. You could also try somewhere warm within the US – maybe Florida? California?

most warm-weather locations tend to be cheaper during the summer off-season months so you should be good to go just about anywhere. and i don’t believe hurricane season begins until about august right? so jamaica in june should be fabulous! just start looking around and checking the prices. tripadvisor has been so helpful for me and is now the first place i go for hotel reviews. also look around on all the travel sites, travelocity, expedia, travelzoo, kayak and the like for any kind of deals. good luck!

Charleston, South Carolina is great. It’s got a nice mix of the historic, plenty of nice restaurants/bars, pretty beaches…it’ll be h-o-t during the summer, but that won’t matter as much if you’re down by the water! You could also consider the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Go farther south toward Cape Hatteras and get a little cottage for a week. You can bring your own food/alcohol, which will cut your costs.

san diego is beautiful!! that’s where i live and the weathers almost always nice here! plus you can find lots of cheap fun stuff to do like the san diego zoo (2o bucks a ticket) and you can always travel to hollywood and do stuff up there if you want.

The thing I would be cautious of is the notion that hurricanes hit during the summer. I know it seems like an implausability, but they happen! I would plan a honeymoon in an area where there is a nice climate that time of year. Have you thought about North Carolina as a honeymoon destination? Europe would be nice, but crowded. Have you thought about what type of activities you’re interested in? That counts as well.

Hurricane season officially starts June 1st and runs until November 30th. If you look at climatology though, your best bet for visiting would be June. July -> September things really start going in the Caribbean and along the East Coast (again climatologically speaking).
If you do want to visit an island and are very hurricane anxious, Aruba is outside the hurricane belt so it is a rare occurrence and hurricanes are also rare in Hawaii (but again not to say it doesn’t happen- Iniki)
For more graphics about this stuff check out: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/pastprofile.shtml and scroll down to Climatological Areas of Origin and Typical Hurricane Tracks by Month.
Hope this helps!
