My wedding is in February, and here in Washington February is the middle of dreary gray weather. My Fiance an I want to go somewhere warm. My only criteria is bikini weather and ideally a beautiful beach possibly even a cruise. Can anyone recommend a specfic location or honeymoon ideas that will be nice in February? My Fiance’s family is from Hawaii so I’m trying to find somewhere that will be a little more special? and besides I hear february is a bad time to go to Hawaii anyway!
THANKS FOR THE ADVICE!

There is never a bad time to go to Hawaii 🙂 It’s beautiful year-round (I’m from there and getting married there in Feb)
South Caribbean, South Pacific, Australia/New Zealand (as it’s summer down there..)
I do not know your budget but there are several options.
You can do a S. Carib cruise which is what I seriously considered. If you can, try one out of Puerto Rico that is goes south because it’ll be warmer. Avoid the Bahamas because they’re kinda cold that time of year. Barbados, Aruba, etc are all nice in Feb. Celebrity does an AWESOME 10-14 day cruise to S. Carib but is pricier than Royal Caribbean, which is pricier than Carnival.
There are also awesome cruises on Royal Caribbean that leave from Sydney and go over to NZ and then back. HOWEVER, I have read that the Tazman Sea can be really bad that time of year (it’s really hit or miss..) To me, it wasn’t worth that possibility.

Hamilton island isand is seriously amazing! It’ll be summer in feb, but it’s always pretty warm there (we went in may which was late autumn and I was wearing a bikini). Lots of great things to do there, there’s pretty much something for everyone (scuba diving on the great barrier reef, motorbike riding, hiking, sports like golf and tennis, beautiful beaches, nightlife, fauna park, shops, the list goes on). At that time of year if you go out to the great barrier reef you might get to see some dolphins (it was too late in the year when we went, but they said in summer they see them a bit). It’s such a great place, cannot recommend it enough!

We went to the Bahamas in February 2011 for my 30th. It was in the 80s, water in the mid 70s, sunny and perfect every day. It was pretty awesome!
