My inlaws did the same thing and I just went with it. Free is free.

have you been to hawaii? It’s pretty similar to the Bahamas, and the bahamas are actually very commercialized…And I’d think that most people would not say that Hawaii is not exotic and tropical I’ve been to both. I’d choose hawaii over the bahamas for the most part.

Hawaii is pretty tropical and exotic 🙂  It is not that far off from what you wanted (in vacation type), and it is FREE!

You can always go to the Bahamas with the money you saved by not having to pay for this trip later in the year. 

This is a very generous gift, one a lot of people (including me) would love to have!

Like the previous poster said free is free. Hawaii is apparently a beautiful place and it quote pricey so you should be happy to be going there for free. Many people would be so lucky to have that as a honeymoon destination.

Hey, it’s a free trip! I loved if someone would do that for me!!! What are the activities they have planned for you? It’s a bit pushy to assume you would like to do similar activities in Hawaii, but hey it’s always cool to try something new!

haha Oh sister, Hawaii is even MORE exotic and tropical than the Bahamas.  To me, at least.  Enjoy it.

I get it, I’m not a fan of Hawaii to be honest but a free trip is a free trip. Go on this honeymoon and save your money for perhaps an amazing first anniversary trip to the Bahamas or other place you feel is more exotic.

Hawaii IS tropical and exotic. I was really sympathetic that you couldn’t choose until I got to that part. It’s a free honeymoon to a place very similar to what you wanted. There is no problem here IMO.

@HisBrideinJune2012:  I would call thailand, Fiji, or Belize exotic.  Bahamas?  Not so much.  But I can understand that you wouldn’t want something as commericalized as HI.  How about if you do HI, and hit up an exotic place for your 1 year anniversary?  You would totally insult them if you said you hated the idea of going to HI.

Edit – I have been to Kaui and Maui and both are absolutely gorgeous and fun.  🙂

I understand your frustration but hey, it is Hawaii, not Iran.  I’d take it and try to enjoy myself.  besides you don’t HAVE to do the activities they set up for you.  You can either try to change to something else or just or try to get th emoney back and use for some shopping or whatever.  

I would LOVE to go to Hawaii.  But I I know how it feels for people to decide things for you without even asking.  Don’t say anything (but thank you) though because it’ll make you look ungrateful (I mean who complains about going to Hawaii).

Hawaii is tropical. Hawaii’s latitude is a few degrees closer to the equator, which means it’s technically more tropical than the Bahamas. =) Anyway, as other bees have said, it’s a free trip to Hawaii. I think they are being very generous to send you there.
