Where to Honeymoon?

Hi, everybody!

My fiancé and I got engaged last month and are planning for 10/10/15 near Pittsburgh! I've started researching honeymoon ideas (because I can't wait!) and I was wondering where you all were thinking about going! We're talking about going to Mexico (gulf-side), but I don't know whether that's a good idea or not, especially weather-wise.

Thoughts anyone?

  • We are going to Antigua.
  • We're thinking of going to the gulf side as well! The weather is going to be too risky with a lot of the islands because it's the rainy season during October, so I'm a little bummed. Mexico is actually one of the highest recommended places during October. Have you looked into any resorts yet? We have looked into some, but we still don't really know which one we want to go to... Possibly Secrets

  • We're going to New Orleans! I'm so excited about that! The weather should still be pretty nice and hopefully it'll be gorgeous down there since we're going when the leaves should just be turning their fall colors. I'm thinking it'll be so romantic - jazz music, good food, the company of my wonderful new husband and this beautiful city that is so full of history that we can explore. 

    I really enjoy reading about where everyone else is going for their honeymoons!

  • We are considering waiting until December and doing Rondell Village in Negril, Jamaica - or perhaps Belize if we can find the money for an all inclusive there.

  • Our honeymoon will be the summer after our wedding
  • @MrsMelodyShah we are doing my bachelorette in New Orleans! It's one of my favorite cities. However, fall doesn't really hit the south until a lot later unfortunately. I'm originally from the gulf coast area and our trees sometimes didn't change until December or January. A lot of years it was just big freeze and the green leaves would just fall off. I just don't want you to get your hopes up about leaves! It's a gorgeous city regardless and so lively.

    We are going to be doing ours in the Caribbean I believe. I have a companion pass with SWA so we are planning on using that and going to one of their international destinations so maybe Aruba or DR. I think we are going to be leaving the Tuesday after we get married. 

  • @kellystuart11 We live in Nashville and we get a Fall briefly - the leaves will be STUNNING for a week or two and then everything is bare. I figured New Orleans may be similar but maybe not. We plan on enjoying the city regardless :)

  • And I hope you enjoy the Caribbean! I'd love to go visit there one day, too!

    You're gonna love it! I've been many times and stayed in various places (that are now known as other places). My dad got (re)married at the Belagio over a decade ago, too. So much to do and see! We're getting married in front of the Cape Hatteras lighthouse in NC.

    Thanks, @vegasbride2015! Vegas is also a gorgeous place for pics! All the lights and hubub in the streets, if you get a bomb photog, you can get a lot of fabulous shots!

  • We are getting married 10.10.15 as well! We are honeymooning in Ireland/England/Scotland!
  • I'm in the same boat trying to figure it out.. We are thinking of maybe doing Central America, like Costa Rica or Belize. But if we decide to go to the Caribbean, we are going to wait until after hurricane season is over (later in winter or spring) and just do a mini-moon immediately following the wedding. 
  • We are planning on planning our honeymoon for the summer after since my fiance is a teacher. But we are going to Hawaii, not sure where to stay yet, but we're starting to narrow down where to go.
  • We're staying at El Dorado Royale in Riviera Maya, Mexico. 5-star gourmet inclusive resort. Check it out if you're thinking Mexico!

    This is a bit of a zombie thread, but I'll go ahead and reply:
    We plan on spending 10 days in Orlando-- 3 at Universal Studios and 7 at Walt Disney World. We've booked the Disney portion, but we're waiting on sales for airfare and the Universal portion. I may be more excited for the honeymoon than I am for the wedding lol.

  • 2.5 weeks in Hawai!!

    I can't wait!
  • I was considering Hawaii too! It's supposed to be a good alternative for avoiding hurricane season. They don't have many all-inclusives though and I kinda wanted to do that. Who knows! I know I gotta get booking soon though :)
