    @JamieAnnette: I voted Greek Isles…cuase well..thats what im doing in 4 months!! woot woot.

     

    but sometimes i think we should have just done the cheaper more generic route…we could have gone way sooner then too (instead of a year after the weddng!)

    I voted against greece casue of the greek culture.  You don’t want guys hitting on you on your honeymoon and they will, I donno how Dominican Rep guys are though.  I heard Dominican Rep is lovely.

    I vote for Greek Isle too, cause that’s where I want to go but we only have a week so we’re doing Maui.  Go to Santarino (sp), I heard it’s so beautiful!

    @JamieAnnette: we are going to England for one week and then flying to Athens, 2 days there and then we are just island hopping Mykonos, santornin etc. We dont have anything set in stone and are just going off the seat of our pants…it will be fun. Two weeks.

    @Atalanta: go to mexio…its way worse.I was there with my boyfriend at the time and the bartender proposed to me and told me i could do better. He asked why i was here with “that loser” *yeesh*

    @Ms. Sparkles: Maui is my favorite place on the face of the earth….have fun!

    I am not a fan of all inclusives so by default I chose Greece, although I would love to go. Part of traveling for me is to explore all the great local food cuisines, small hole in the walls, markets etc!

    If you can afford it, I say go for your dream trip (Greece). It’s your honeymoon, and you’ve got the opportunity NOW to do this trip. Who knows if a “big trip in a couple years” will actually happen?

    No question, the Greek islands.  I’ve always thought it looks like paradise there.

    @JamieAnnette: FYI, we’re looking at Greece too, and if you want to go there and save money you can certainly do that – Santorini and Mykonos are the two most expensive islands (2-3x more than anywhere else), so definitely price out different options before you scratch the trip entirely. We are looking at Naxos/Paros, Crete, and some others that are way way less expensive (and touristy and crowded) than those two (which is just our personal preference). Obvi they are supposed to be great fun and gorgeous so I’m not knocking them, I mean for the sake of your question, if you are on a strict budget and still want to do the Isles, you have lots of options of ways to make it work. 🙂 I just spent the last couple of nights reading up on different ideas on the lonely planet and tripadvisor forums – PM me if you want more details.
