We’re using frequent flyer miles to go to the Maldives and Bali. My fiance has always wanted to dive at the Maldives, so that’s the expensive half of the trip with Bali balancing it out a bit. It’s supposedly monsoon season in the Maldives in September, but people say the rain can be infrequent and you could be lucky and have only sun. Either way, temperatures are in the 80’s. Bali is sunny and 70-90F in September.

We rented a realllly nice house right next to the Rocky Mountain National Park, and are spending 5 days hiking, white water rafting, and coming home to an amazing mountain view hot tub and gourmet kitchen. I can’t wait to make great food and relax with my husband! We’ll be doing a big Asia trek next year on our 1st anniversary, so we decided to do something in the States that neither of us had done before (and it just happens to be very budget friendly! A whole house to ourselves for the cost of a nice hotel room in the carribean!)

We are going to Australia and Fiji.
But I seriously recommend a California trip if you want to stay within the US. In September the entire state is BEAUTIFUL!!! (that is why we are getting married in September) Fly into San Diego and drive to San Francisco… Take the 1 (Pacific Coast Hwy) and stay at B&B’s. Spend some time in wine country. Hawaii would be an amazing choice too if you want to stay in the the States.
I love Paris in the fall… Europe is soooo amazing in the fall time. I seriously have the travel bug… like all the time.

We’re going to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico… It’s on the Pacific coast, so there’s less of a hurricane risk. There’s still a risk, but I guess we’ll just be living on the edge, HA!

Another Aruba girl here too. Not sure if we’re staying at the Mariott (the one on the strip with the casino) or the Hyatt.
In a perfect world we’d go to Bora Bora or Greece, but there’s no $$ for that right now. Plus, I think FI’s parents are going to gift us our honeymoon and I don’t want to take them for granted with a big expensive trip.

We are doing South East Asia, so no hurrican worries (just political unrest and monsoons). But, we consider it an adventure!
Another poster mentioned San Francisco as a good September location. I second her suggestions. SF is amazing in the fall (best time of year for weather). And if you can sneak up to wine country for a day or two, harvest will be happening which is very educational and fun.

We’re going to Barbados! It’s pretty far south so it’s a low risk for hurricanes. We’re staying at The Crane, which looks gorgeous in the pictures! We met with a travel agent so these are the places he recommended for the caribbean for hurricane season: Aruba, Curacao (he recommends Curacao over Aruba. Very similar islands but less “Americanized”), St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Grenada, and Barbados.

We are heading to Vegas right after the wedding and then we are doing our “real” honeymoon in England in May 2011. I didn’t want to plan an major trip and my wedding at the same time. Also it meant I could do a honeymoon registry to help out with the cost of going to England 🙂

We are thinking a Hawaiian island

We’re going to Kapa’a Kauai for six nights and the one night in Waikiki so I can take the boy to Pearl Harbour to pay our respects and then we head home. I can’t wait. I told him to prepare himself for the fact that we may never leave the island once he gets me back down there!

Well if you’re worried about hurricanes, do some research. The Fiance and I went to the Dominican Republic last September, but after much research the part of the Dominican we went to hadn’t been hit by a hurricane in 80 years! It rained 1X for about 30 seconds of the entire vacation!
We are actually waiting a few weeks to go on our honeymoon. I have a friend’s wedding 1 week after mine, so I wanted to go to that, and pushed our honeymoon off until October 8th. We are going to Tahiti! I can’t wait! Then when we get back, I have another friend’s wedding! Phew finally my life could calm down.
I’ve been to a lot of places, so I’m excited to try somewhere new. But I would definitely reccomend Aruba and Hawaii (all islands are unique in their own way). I would reccomend Jamaica if you are planning on staying on the resort, or get a guide to take you around…same for the Dominican.

We bought travel insurance when we booked our trip to St. Lucia! We’ll keep our fingers crossed but if there is a hurricane before that damages the resort or one in danger of approaching, we’ll have to come up with a last mintue plan B. Hopefully everything will be fine though.

we’re going to panama. it was hard to find a place that was beachy yet had something to do (other than sitting on the beach) that didn’t seem in the way of hurricanes. i’m really excited!
