    We're going to NOLA for five days.    We booked it through travelocity and based on recs from our friends who have been there before.  We're leaving on Monday after the wedding so we can spend Sunday with our family from out of town.  I'm most looking forward to just relaxing, awesome music, and fantastic food.
  • My answers: 

    Yes - we're leaving Dec 1 (wedding is Sunday before Turkey Day & we wanted to decompress post-wedding before traveling in hopes to avoid too many travelers). 

    Kauai, HI!

    Apart from spending time with my then husband, I'm most looking forward to tubing down an old sugar cane irrigation ditch - lazy river style!

    Nope, planning it ourselves, with the internet as a guide :)
  • Are you taking one?  YES

    Where are you going? 7 day cruise to the Western Carribean

    What are you most looking forward to doing on your honeymoon? Eating & Drinking without any thought to how it will effect my wedding dress!

    Did you use a travel agent? No

    Details, people. We're leaving the morning after the wedding at 8:00 a.m (that's what I get for letting FI plan it himself)! LOL... I'm sure we won't sleep until we're on the plane.

    Are you taking one?  YES

    Where are you going? Los Angeles, California

    What are you most looking forward to doing on your honeymoon? Enjoying being married and relaxing, eating lots of good food 

    Did you use a travel agent? No

    Details, people. 

    We originally planned a luxury ski trip to Park City Utah BUT we went over budget on the wedding so we decided to take a honeymoon here in California. I don't know any details because FI booked everything and said he has surprises for me everyday. So I am sure it will be great. We are planning to do Hawaii next year for our anniversary.

    Where are you going? We are going to St. Lucia and staying at the Sandals resort

    What are you most looking forward to doing on your honeymoon? We have a big hike planned on the third day while we are there so we get to see the best views in St. Lucia from the Pitons and we get to explore waterfalls and beaches. I'm so excited.

  • Are you taking one?  Yes

    Where are you going? Western Caribbean Cruise on Freedom of the Seas

    Most looking forward to? Spending time just the two of us with all of the wedding planning stress behind us.

    Travel again?  Yes we did because you get perks when booking through an agent vs. cruise line directly.  We are getting $100 on board credit, dinner for 2 in a specialty restaurant, lunch for 4 at the on board Johnny Rockets, and earning 8 airline miles per $1 spent!

    Details?  We get married on 11/23 but don't leave until 12/6 with the cruise leaving 12/8.  It leaves out of Port Canaveral so we are flying down early to hit Universal Studios for a day and a half before cruising :)
  • We are staying at Excellence Riviera Cancun (in Riviera Maya) and leaving December 15th since our wedding is the Saturday before Thanksgiving. We used Liberty Travel and their price was cheaper than everything online and it comes with some extra perks. I highly recommend a travel agent (they will match prices and they are very knowledgeable). 

    I am soooo excited to be sitting on a BEACH! 
  • I thought I would update. FI was too excited and decided to share details about our honeymoon. We are doing an LA/Anaheim honeymoon. He has planned several things for us to do including Disneyland, a Lakers game (I'm a big fan), and going to the Walt Disney concert hall! I am so excited :) 

    He wouldn't reveal all the details but he said he had to share.

    Are you taking one? - Yes, but not until the first of the year - I teach at a university and we're mid-semester, and at the time of the wedding I'm in the middle of my comprehensive PhD exams. Brilliant timing. :-S


    Where are you going? New Zealand 


    What are you most looking forward to doing on your honeymoon? Exploring together - truly having "alone" time - detaching from everything else for a couple weeks. 


    Did you use a travel agent? These still exist?! 


    Details, people. 
    FI and I aren't lounging around people - we love to be on the move, so we'll be leasing a "campervan" (RV in New Zealand speak) and exploring both islands for a couple weeks. NZ has an extensive and established RVing culture, and we're super excited to get to see and stay places we might not have otherwise. The accommodations certainly won't be 4-star uxurious, but it will be an adventurous couple weeks and that's right up our alley! 

    Edited so it's not just one huge block of text.
