    I say compromise unless you’re ok with going with his idea. I am sure you will still have fun wherever he picks. I kind of let Darling Husband pick. I wanted to go back to Puerto Rico, but he wanted to go somewhere different, so when we looked for cruises we compromised on places to go. It was fun doing it together.

    I admire you for letting your Fiance choose where to go. I like his idea of romantic and quiet. You can’t really get that on the beach sometimes 🙂

    Are there any warm, romantic/quiet places you’re interested in? or somewhere you can get a little of each? You can look into places like Florida, Carolinas, Georgia, that region for places that are scenic and romantic while still being warm. If there’s nothing you’re really in love with, and you really don’t care too much about where you go, let him pick.

    I vote compromise. What exactly is he looking for if you go to somewhere like Napa? Is he a hiking adventure guy and he wants woods and outdoorsy stuff to do? Or he doesn’t like the heat from a tropical place or what?

    Kauai offers a LOAD of outdoorsy activities, enouhg hikes that you will never even cover them in the span of a week, kayaking, river floating, SUP paddling, etc and there are plenty of very quiet areas. Either way my answer was to compromise, just as he is with the wedding. I highly doubt you are planning it all and he’s just hating it.

    Personally I would let him do the planning since as you said you are getting the wedding YOU want and sounds like he isnt involved in the planning of it. So would be fair if HE planned the honeymoon.

    Hmm this is a tough one! I love warm and sunny, so I’m with you! There are no all-inclusives in Hawaii, so it’s a bit more $$. Could you do both- maybe have a beach honeymoon then go where your FH wants in the summer or vice versa? Or maybe a cruise starting in San Fran (you could do Napa and Sonoma) going to Hawaii or Mexico?

    Well wine country is certainly fun and romantic! You could also play to spend part of your time in Napa and part of it around Santa Monica/Venice Beach, etc, that would give you a bit of beach time and variety

    I voted for the compromise as well.  What about renting a car and driving from Napa down to LA where you can enjoy those beaches (Venice, Santa Monica, Zuma Beach is a favorite of mine) – the drive would be about 6-7-8 hours depending on what route you take/traffic/etc.
