    Meredith80:  my Fiance and i are getting married in October as well (2016)… and we want to go to Palawan (philippines) for our honey moon. although it will be the rainy season also… so the same situation as yours. we are going to put off the honeymoon until the weather clears up!

     

    i’ve heard from alot of couples that they love the idea or wish they would have put the honeymoon off for a little bit, because the stress from the wedding needs to calm down too, to completely enjoy yourselves.

     

    so i say Thailand… get it girl! goodluck 🙂

    What do you mean worried about getting sick? I traveled with my Fiance in Thailand (not for honeymooning) and we only spent a little time in some of the more touristy places like Koh Samui, but it’s beautiful and the food is amazing, and your spending money will go a lot farther there than in France or Italy. 

    You might check out this post: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/honeymoon-suggestions-17/ – one of the first posters talks about her trip to Koh Samui, Thailand for her honeymoon and the pictures look amazing. 

    I also think delyaing the honeymoon gives you something else to plan for and get excited about. I know other people who have done this and they all really loved the gap between wedding and honeymoon.

    My Fiance and I are going to Thailand for our honeymoon! We’re getting married in September and doing a delayed honeymoon in January. I think it’s going to be great because we’ll have time to reflect & diffuse (lol) from our wedding and all the crazy planning! We’re spending three weeks there in Koh Samui, Bangkok and Chaing Mai! I think it’s a great honeymoon spot with tons of activities and tons to see- definitely something we’ll NEVER be able to do once babies are in the picture!

    I’m going to Thailand that exact same time frame. My partner’s parents are Thai, and always wait closer to the end of November for a bit better weather – they say less rain! Usually they go the first two weeks of December. 

    There are some very nice accomdations for pretty cheap prices, depending where about you go. A friend went to Koh Lanta recently with her boyfriend and said it would be a perfect honeymoon island. We’re going to go to Chang Mai, Koh Samaui, Krabi and Koh Tao as well as a week in Laos when we go.

    Thailand is awesome! If you’re worried about getting sick, don’t get at the roadside stalls but otherwise, it’s perfectly fine!

    My Fiance and I are also going to Thailand (and surrounding countries) this fall. It’s funny you’re worried about getting sick in Thailand. I actually got REALLY sick in Italy on our last trip, but never had any issues in Thailand. Just be sure to get your shots (check out CDC website: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/traveler/none/thailand)

    Although both my Fiance and I have traveled to Thailand before, we decided to go back as it is a central location (esp. Bangkok) for traveling around South East Asia (SEA). Our plan is to visit Bhurma, Singapore, Camobida, and potentially Indonesia. From an econconimcs perspective, at $70-100 a night, you can find very nice resorts in Thailand (and in the SEA area), where that might not be the case in Europe.

    Lastly, depending on where you live, for my Fiance and I (who live in the East Coast), Europe (esp Western Europe) will always be just over the pond for us. We travel to Europe annually, so there’s no “exotic” appeal for us – at least for our honeymoon. But then again, it really depends on what you’re looking for.

    Thailand is wonderful! Lovely nature, fantastic beaches, super friendly people and everything is very cheap. And the food!! Yum! And not to forget, Thai massage! Almost at no cost at all. I love Thailand!

    I have never been to France (even though I live in Sweden), so I can’t say much about that. The food and wine is suppose to be great, but the common things you hear about French people are that they are pretty snotty…
