October 2013 Weddings

Honeymoon

Is anyone else going to be heading to Hawaii in the month of October after their wedding? We are, and I am soooo ready to be there and not planning a wedding! 

Sadly, I will have to do some work while on our honeymoon, but its worth it if I can sit on the beach with a mai tai in my hand while I'm doing it!

Re: Honeymoon

  • We're headed to Hawaii, but not until November- our wedding is Oct 26th and we both decided we needed some time between the wedding in honeymoon to tie up some loose ends at work and actually concentrate on packing.

    We're doing 12 days in Kauai, a week on the north side of the island in a private cottage and then the remainder on the south shore in an amazing condo we found.

    I'm so excited, cannot wait to go!

    Nope -- we're going cold for our honeymoon! Iceland in February, haha.

  • No honeymoon for us :( We are considering a mini-moon though. We've discussed going down to Mardi Gras with some family, so it wouldn't be a honeymoon exactly, but we are ok with that.

  • No island adventure for us - although.... we will be visiting The Islands of Adventure one of the days so we can take a trip to visit a few of our favorite Brits and try out some Butterbeer...

  • We are looking at hawaii...we still haven't finalized.  My dad has offered his timeshare for us, but the airfare still puts it at a little of a stretch for us, but we're trying to make it work because its still the cheapest we'd ever be able to do hawaii.  If we end up there it will be either the Big Island or Maui at this point.

  • We are also going on a cruise to turks and caicos and the bahamas.

  • You guys are all so lucky.  Hawaii sounds amazing!!  We're going to the Smokey Mountains--Gatlinburg, TN and staying in a cabin for a week.  FI picked this out.  If I had even the tinest of say in it, I would have chosen Hawaii or California or Florida or something.  I'm sure it will be fun...but Hawaii!!

  • Because I will need a new visa and can't leave the UK until it arrives about 10 days after our wedding date, we're going to the Isle of Skye in Scotland for a week for a mini-moon.  Then once it comes, we're going to Paris for two weeks.

  • We thought about Hawaii,  but being in Florida, the long flights to get there deterred us.  We ended up deciding on a Cruise leaving the 14th, and we'll be gone for the week.  I can't wait to relax, and recoup with some luxury!   Plus, minimal travel to and from the port...we only live 40 minutes from away!

    I can't wait to be married and just chill out being a wife and stuff.

  • Yessss! Our wedding is 10/25 and we fly to Oahu on 10/27, will stay 5 nights there then to Maui for 6 nights. I am excited for the wedding, and ridiculously excited for the honeymoon! It will be a lot of travel from Boston but worth it I'm sure.
  • We are going to Cabo and leaving the Monday after our wedding (10/5) and will be gone for the week. We looked at a bunch of different locations, but so glad we decided on Cabo. Can't wait to be sitting on the beach :)
  • No honeymoon for us yet.  We agreed that we would do one for our first anniversary to save on finances right now. But we are going to rent a suite at the casino that's close by the day after our wedding ;-)

  • @lplions - I LOVE Harry Potter World!  I'm actually headed to Disney this weekend and HOPING to hop on over to Universal.  However, butter beer - not my favorite drink in the world. I was disappointed because I thought I was going to love it.  And you need to drink it right away...don't let it sit :)

    As for honeymoon - we are getting married on the 26 and then leave that Monday to head to Europe for three weeks - so far on the list of places to go - Brussels, England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Austria (for a night to visit a friend in Vienna), and Germany.  I can't wait!

  • @schellzinator We haven't been, so we're going to spend a day there, I'm pretty excited. The only problem now is trying to figure out exactly how to get from our hotel to Universal. We're not renting a car - there's no need. I think we're going to use Mears Transportation, but we haven't gotten all the logistics of that figured out yet.

  • I would DEFINITELY use Mears transportation.  We used the public transportation and it was painful :)

  • @schellzinator we have like the same schedule. Wedding on the 26th, flying to London that Monday for a week and then Brussels for 3 days.
