I guess it depends where in FL you are going to be but I remember taking a trip to Disney in October and the weather was perfect, not too hot but warmer than Boston, we had rain on 1 of 10 days. I agree that you should plan your honeymoon together but if the hurricane season is keeping you out of FL, I think you may be late enough in October to not have to worry so much.

As a life-long Floridian I agree with legalbee – the weather should be beautiful! While it still is technically hurricane season in October, I’ve only had to deal with a hurricane once in October, and that was in 2004 when things were crazy. And with the La Nina (or is it El Nino) going on now, your odds of a hurricane are super low. Where in Florida are you looking to go?

You’ll be fine in October, summer is when it’s gross and rainy every day.

no way! the afternoon rain pattern ends in september. i grew up in palm beach county-it should be gorgeous unless there is some weird weather pattern going on!

why palm beach though?  theres so many better places! (although im biased since that was home to me!)

I have family in Palm Beach – it’s a great place & only a short drive to Miami & the Keys. Love it! While no one can promise zero rain, the normal pattern is the occasional afternoon thunderstorm. And if you stay on the beach, they are amazing to watch roll in! So don’t worry – you will get plenty of time to relax on the beach.

i LOVE the west coast beaches now that im on this side.  siesta key/longboat key area is great if you want beaches and then fun places to go out to at night.  boca grande is gorgeous, but much slower speed and theres pretty much no nightlife!  sanibel and marco island are some other great beach spots.

Another Floridian seconding beautiful weather in late October and November. We’re getting married in November primarily for the weather. I really wouldn’t worry about a tropical storm or hurricane in October, and I think fall is the absolute best time to visit Florida. It will be less crowded and the weather will be gorgeous! Perfect time for a honeymoon!

Do you have travel insurance? I’m sure you’ll be fine; it won’t storm for 2.5 weeks straight!
