Darling Husband just booked our honeymoon to Paris! We’re going for a week in September. I am so thrilled – it’s always been a dream of mine to go there (never been before) and Darling Husband made it come true. Anyone been there and have any good tips??

Haha I love the title of this post! And I love Paris. My advice: yes, plan some of the cool tourist stuff like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and Louvre…BUT leave a day or so unplanned and just wander around. There are the coolest little shops, restaurants, bakeries that you might never have found otherwise.

I went there twice when I was quite young. I must have changed a lot now. Just one tip, get at least one LV bag! It’s a lot cheaper there (Comparing to the US, Canada, and Asia).

We went for our honeymoon in April – pack light but with lots of layers – scarves always do make you look chic and take a trench or rain coat!!

We went to Antibes (Nice / south of France) and Paris on our Honeymoon. Depending on what you like, consider renting an apartment – slightly less or the same as a hotel, but much cooler. (and potentially free laundry!)

We went three years ago. It’s amazing! I second the walking tour. Plan a picnic in the park under the Eiffel tower if you’re a people watcher. The Lourve was amazing. Wear comfortable shoes. And we found that if we made an effort to at least greet and thank everyone in French, that people were generally friendly and helpful when we had questions. We stayed in several different types of hotels, including one 5 star but my favorite ended up being the cheapest place we stayed, with no air conditioners, and a completely weird layout with barely any room to walk through. It overlooked a beautiful little alley way. There was just something really romantic about having to strip down to our undies it was so hot… we just layed with the windows to the street open talking and laughing half of the day. 🙂 You’re going to have a blast!

congrats! we were there in November and my honeymoon hint is to take with you a brass lock and have it engraved with your names/date/whatever before you go because on bridges in front on the lourve and notre dame people put locks and as a visitor it was so nice to stand there reading the messages and names. earned a big awwhhh out of me

Spent 8 days there two years ago and fell so in love that Darling Husband arranged for us to spend 3 days in Paris on our honeymoon in a couple weeks! I’m so excited… Paris is the best city in the world. Enjoy every moment, and make sure you DONT plan it out too much… Paris is very laid back. Eat when you want, drink when you want, sit in the gardens and read a book, wander through the neighborhoods, just take your time. Ugh, I’m so excited… good for you!!!

OOhh, I’m jealous! Pere Lachaise Cemetary is pretty cool (Jim Morrison and many other cool people’s graves are there).
Also, go to Ladurée, it is a pastry shop on the Champs d’Elysées…. amazing macarons!
