We got married Oct. 12th 2008.  We went to Cancun, Mexico.  It is the tail end of hurricane season, so you are taking a slight risk, but I can’t recommend it enough.  It is CHEAP and QUIET that time of year- perfect for a honeymoon.  We got a huge deal on the resort and practically had it to ourselves.  It was mostly honeymooners, not crazy parties and families, so it was perfect.

We can’t decide!!

We only have a week, so are thinking of the following:

Costa Rica – http://www.hotelpuntaislita.com/

Italy (just a few stops)

Grand Canyon/Sedona hiking and spa honeymoon

Atlantis in Bahamas

My Fiance does not like to sit around for a whole vacation so we are trying to think of places that has some ways to really relax but also places with activity.  And we live on the east coast so I think a one week honeymoon in Hawaii is out of the question : (

Hey there-

I’m getting married for the second time, am a school teacher and have 5 year old twins. I live in SW Georgia and that is where we are getting married. With having to work aroud school vacations, we decided to avoid the holidays, but settled on fall break for our wedding date. Weather here is mild (mid 60s usually, humidity is down & nights are cool). Part of why we also chose October is because of where we wanted to honeymoon. We are having a Saturday morning wedding on October 17th, followed by a brunch reception. We decided early on that we didn’t want to fly anywhere & that we wanted to honeymoon in the mountains.

We are driving up NE of Atlanta after the reception and spending our wedding night at a fabulous Bed & Breakfast. The next day, we are driving up to Tennessee and spending a full week in the Smokies. I’ve never been, it will be peak leaf season-cool days and cold nights will make for lovely romantic evenings by the fire place. We are renting a secluded cabin high up in the mountains overlooking one of the state parks. We are planning a couple of evenings out (piano bar one night, dancing another, dinner at another really nice restaurant, breakfast one morning out before an "adventure" day that we have planned) but mostly going to the grocery store and disappearing for most of the week. Dinners in town require about a 30 minute drive into town, but we’re on our honeymoon-without children-so seclusion is what we were looking for). The luxury cabin has a loft with a king size bed & fireplace, wraparound deck with 6 person hot tub, fireplace on the main floor-it’s really nice and I CAN’T WAIT!

We are going on a roadtrip!  At first I was a little "eh.." about the idea, but as he started getting way more excited about it, mapping out great locations AND bringing up the idea of a wedding vow renewal in Las Vegas…. It just really sounds like SO much fun, and so much like us!

We are scratching our plans and starting anew.  I think we may do one of the following now:

– Turks & Caicos

– St. Kitts/Nevis

– Bermuda

Some other island.  We like to live on the edge so are going to take a gamble on the hurricanes : )

WooHoo for St. Kitts and Nevis! I am currently living here (Yay!) so I think it is pretty great! There are some great restaurants and the culture is really amazing and the snorkeling and diving is amazing! The beaches are great too! From one of my favorites beaches we swam out about 40 yards along a rocky bit of the coastline and saw a squid, sea turtle, tons of lobsters, a black spotted eagle ray and a puffer fish! And that was completely free because we just swam out and saw everything. If you are into hiking there is a volcano hike that is really challenging and beautiful. If you are into the spa vacation then the Emerald Mist spa is WONDERFUL! Sorry I didn’t mean to ramble on but I really do love it here!

And going in october means that you will miss most of hurrican season as the big ones usually show up in late august to mid september.

I’m getting married Oct. 23rd of this year. This past weekend the Fiance and I booked our honeymoon to the Bahamas! I’m totally excited. They airline and bahamas are both doing promos for some money off. We are staying at the sandals resort all inclusive and also booked a villa with 24 room service, butler service and rolls royce transfer to n from the airport.

I could not believe how affordable it was!!

 Good luck to all my fellow october wedders!!

@Erindesmar: I would definitely recommend the Marriot because it is kinda in the heart of everything. But the new Christophe Harbor is absolutely breath taking. A lot of people actually rent homes around the island for a few weeks. Otteleys Plantation is on the other side of the island from a lot of the activities but if you are looking for relaxation and to truly be on island time that is the place to go!  PM if you have any other questions!

We’re also getting married this October.  Right now we’re looking at Nuevo Vallarta (north of Puerto Vallarta) and possibly Belize.  Anyone have any other suggestions?  We want beach, quiet and some seclusion.
