Who is or has gotten married in September and October? Where have/ did you go on your honeymoon?
Fiance and I are trying to figure out options. Only problem is we are getting married sep 28 and would probably be looking to go like sep 30 through first weekend of October. We both really wanna go somewhere tropical like the Caribbean but that happens to be their rainy season with potential of hurricanes.
Has anyone does this and it ended up being okay? Any other suggestions for honeymoons? Right now our front runner is punta cana but with it being in the Caribbean there is that potential for hurricanes. Anyone who has experience in this that can offer advice would be great.
Thanks in advance

Taking a cruise is an option for the Caribbean. The captain has the option of rerouting if there are any concerns about hurricanes.

We got married September 29th, and went to Kauai for our honeymoon. We wanted something warm/tropical and originally were planning to go to the Caribbean but I was too scared of being there during the rainy season.
Hawaii was awesome that time of year. I highly recommend.

We are getting married August 23rd and honeymooning for the last week of August and first week of Mexico. i wanted to go back to SE Asia, but it will be monsoon season.
We are going to go to Mexico. There will be a chance of bad weather, but FH went in September 2 years ago and said it was sunny every day.

Rainy season I can’t speak to, but I can say that an October hurricane is fairly rare. Peak is around the first week of September. End of September early October should be fairly safe.

The only time I went to the Caribbean in September we got hit with a tropical storm. It sucked. Others have been multiple times this time of year & experienced great weather. It just can’t be predicted. If it were me I would pick somewhere out of the hurricane path (Aruba I think + some others, there’s a few places) or consider Julies suggestion of a cruise.

We went to St Lucia. We had 1 rainy day in 2 weeks.

Not sure what your budget is but we got married October and went on our honeymoon in November. We went to Mauritius and it was perfection. Sunny, hot, and beautiful. I so highly recommend it. We had maybe 2 days of rain but it would rain for 10 mins and then be gone.

I got married last September and we went to Fiji and the weather was amazing.

I second Mauritius. We took our honeymoon in September/October and Mauritius was our original plan because its a great time of year there. We ended up going with Italy but Mauritius is a great tropical option.

We didn’t honeymoon then but we did go on vacation to Jamaica in mid-October and my husband proposed on that trip. Maybe we lucked out, but there was only one afternoon when it rained, and the weather was perfect the rest of the time.

I did not think about that! I honestly just figured most wouldn’t do cruises at that time due to the potential so that’s good to know

thank you! That makes me feel better. If it rains a bit that’ll suck but that’s the chance anywhere so that doesn’t bug me but hurricanes are another story. Notnhaving to worry to much beginning of October is great. Thank you
