Where to honeymoon in September? Travel agent?

We are getting married in September, and wanted to go away for two weeks. Given its hurricane season, i think the caribean is out right? Any ideas for a place where we can relax on the beach, do excursions if we want, and get pampered? We were looking at fiji/tahiti but really are open to anything. Specifics would be great.
Also, did you use a travel agent? Any recommendations (either in CT or MA)?
THanks!

    What is your budget? That will be the biggest factor. If your budget can only get you to the Caribbean, then I say it's fine and just buy insurance in the rare chance that something comes up. Also, picking a travel agent should be based on the destination you choose. You want a Tahiti specialist for Tahiti and a Fiji specialist for Fiji. Also, not sure if you are aware, but you can't do both Fiji and Tahiti in the same trip and are two totally different places.

    Yes, what is your budget? Fiji/Tahiti are in a totally different price point than the Caribbean.

    FWIW, you CAN do the Caribbean in hurricane season; just get trip insurance, which is something I'd recommend for any vacation where you are spending thousands of dollars. The chance of a hurrican is actually pretty small and you will be covered with insurance.

    Another option is Hawaii. We loved it when we HMed there and they have pretty great weather year-round. Tons to do there and you could even do a couple different islands.

    Let us know your budget! That will help a ton.
    We went to Mexico in September a few years ago and it was amazing. It was gorgeous and not busy and pretty much amazing. It was very affordable too.

    ABCs are Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao.
    Hawaii's hurricane season goes until October 15th.

    no you should not avoid the caribbean just b/c it's hurricane season. get yourself trip insurance, know what your hotel and airlines policies are as far as hurricanes and go.
