I’m having a hard time finding a honeymoon location too!  We wanted to do the Greek Isles but it appears that it’s going to be cold in Oct. and ferries to the Isles will either be shut down or running on a very limited schedule.  Now we’re trying to come up with Plan B.  It’s not easy when you don’t want to do an all-inclusive place or somewhere in the Carribean or anything that is specifically a beach location.

Good luck finding somewhere!

I’m looking for a honeymoon spot in October as well 🙂 We are thinking of Curacao or Aruba. Though those islands are in the Caribbean, they are out of the hurricane belt and the chances of one hitting there are much less.

I sent most of the list above to my Fiance and told him to decide.  I would looooove to do South Africa, but it’s just so expensive!

I hadn’t even thought about hurricane season. I feel like I am so far behind in my planning. We were thinking Costa Rica or somewhere else in the Caribbean, I guess I need to start researching more.

We really want to go on a cruise, but seeing as it’s hurrican season in the fall, we’ve decided to postpone our real honeymoon until the spring of 2011. We both have to put so much money into this wedding, and take off so much time from work, that we really can’t afford a big honeymoon right away. We are going to take a three-four day break after the wedding and go somewhere more local, probably to Chicago.

we originally were thinking of hawaii but i have minimal time off next year so we had to nix that because I would def want to spend more than 10 days there with that travel time (which also took away europe or any pacific islands). We really just wanted someplace we could relax. I got nervous about a cruise or carribbean with hurricane season. We went to Riviera Maya last Jan and LOOOOOVED it so we considered just going to the same place or visiting another one of the resorts in that brand but we are ultimately going to go to Curacao. Hurricanes don’t affect Aruba, Bonaire, or Curacaou and Fiance has been to Aruba so we decided to do something different. I cant wait!!  Still have to book it though

Our plan is Bali! It has always been our dream destination and part of the reason why we were so excited about an October wedding!

You know, I think people get too scared about hurricane season…  I’ve traveled in the Caribbean only once that WASN’T during hurricane season, and that was when we had the most rain! (And now I’ve jinxed it and there will be a hurricane next October…)

We’re doing a 2 week honeymoon in California. Flying into San Diego and spending about 3 days, then a 2 day drive up the Pacific Coast highway to San Fran for a few of days and then out to Wine Country (Napa/Sonoma) for a week. It’s the PERFECT time of year to go out there…and DEFINITELY no hurricanes! lol!

We are chancing it and going on a Caribbean cruise. My fiance has never been on a cruise and we didn’t know when we would get another chance.

Here’s hoping for the best 😀
