I am getting married on October 11 of this year (only 9 months to go!) and I was just wondering if anyone had good suggestions for honeymoon hotspots in October. My fiance is actually planning and booking the whole honeymoon as a surprise for me, but I thought that I would give him some ideas to jump start his search.
I am a big fan of the beach, warm weather, europe, etc. I am pretty much open to any ideas.
Oh, but if I could stay away from a place with bugs, that would be fantastic!!!
Thanks for your help guys!

We are getting married at the end of Sept, and we are pretty close to deciding on Brazil — it’s warm, the beaches are beautiful and there is lots of fun city/culture and nature/adventure. Good luck!

I was married on Oct. 11th this past year, so good choice in dates 🙂 We went to Barbados since it was (along with Aruba) outside of the hurricane belt. We had rainy weather the first day and a half, but the rest of the trip was great. If you have the time & money I would suggest staying out of the Carribean and head to Hawaii. We live on the East Coast, so the travel time to Hawaii was a bit much… I’ve also heard wonderful things about Santorini, Greece & Costa Rica (I’m guessing they might have some crazy bugs there though). Good luck!

We are going on a cruise to Mexico for 7 days! We’ve been on a cruise before and we loved it :). It is so relaxing and the food is awesome. Theres so many things to do on a cruise such as going to the spa, gym, swimming, eating, gambling, shopping and sightseeing when you are docked in a city. Plus theres excursions you can do. You should def look into it because its totally worth it.

Another Oct 2009 bride here…we’re having the hardest time picking a Honeymoon spot.
So far off the list are:
Costa Rica – rainy season
Caribbean – hurricane season (we go there somewhat frequently so we really do want to go some place new to us)
Argentina – too cold (although I have to look further into the weather there)
On the list:
Brazil – Mrs Boots, where are you going there?
Greece/Amalfi Coast – hesitant b/c of the euro but by the time October rolls around it might not be so bad.
Egypt – might be to expensive to fly there
I would love some insight on any of these places if you’ve been.
Where else is everyone going?

We were married on October 11 2008! We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon. We had a great time but it was the start of the rainy season so we couldn’t do as much outdoor stuff as we wanted! If you are looking for sun in October you might want to look somewhere else…

We were married in October 2008 and went to Costa Rica for our honeymoon.
While it was the rainy season we had very little bad weather. We had a downpour when we were high in the rainforest on the zipline and I think it only made it that much more exciting.
Because it is the rainy season the prices were lower and things were rather deserted which was a major plus.
And I had no problem with bugs in Costa Rica.
Though I know it is a crap shoot since it is the rainy season, I still think Costa Rica is worth considering.

We are thinking about going to the coast of Crotia. Its supposed to be very Italian, but cheaper and the road less traveled.

We haven’t booked yet, but we’re probably going to Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, or somewhere else on the west coast of Mexico.

We’re getting married October 3, 2009 and we’ve been looking at these 10 day discovery tours where we get to go to different parts of Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. We don’t really want to do the whole tropical thing. We love going to museums, national parks, and learning stuff. My boss reccommended seeing New Mexico cause of its beauty and different lifestyle. I’m a sucker for beautiful views and love getting that peaceful appreciation of it all. That’s why we’re hoping to hit these three states!

We’re getting married October 2010 and planning on going to Europe. (France, Germany, Italy whirlwind tour). It’s supposedly the ‘off’ season so it will be cheaper. Plus it won’t be so hot like it was when I went in the summer with my family. My boss just took a European cruise in October and the weather was fantastic for her.

Great ideas here! We are also searching for a spot in mid to late October.
Habibi – don’t sell Argentina short…. depends on where you go. We went last year the first week of November, and while Buenos Aires was a little chilly, Mendoza (wine region) was hot! You can also hike in the mountains there, if you don’t mind putting on a jacket… was fantastic, and once you get there, affordable.
We’re interested in Greece, too… I read somewhere that ferries stop heading out in early to mid October, though. Anyone know about that?

We’re getting married Oct 22, 2009 in Los Cabos, and we’re considering either staying for another 4-5 nights in Cabo at a luxury resort for our honeymoon, or flying somewhere else in Mexico for 4-5 nights (i.e. Riviera Maya or somewhere like that). I think Oct/Nov are great in Mexico, especially Los Cabos!

Fiance and I are wanting to go to the Smokey Mountains, down in Tennessee. We’re already saving up for it. I think we might be going with my cousin (who is a groomsman at our wedding) and his wife. Seprate cabins of course.
It’s very beautiful down there. We’re planning on staying 5 days. We don’t know if we’ll leave right after the reception, or a day after. We’re working on it. LOL
