Where to go on my honeymoon

Recommended Posts

If you go right after Mexico, I would look at some place in South or Central America. Costa Rica is very relaxing but they also have a focus on eco-tourism so there are active things to do like hiking, etc. I haven't been but a friend went for her honeymoon and loved it. Belize is also beautiful and the dollar goes pretty far.

 

Next year, DH and I are going to Greece, so I think you should just wait and you can tag along with us! LOL I have a client with a second home there who has offered it up. I need to check and see how serious he was about letting us use the house.

 

My understanding is that Bora Bora is very expensive and I know I would want to stay there for two weeks or more since it takes a while to get there. That might be better saved for a later vacation.

Look at Erin, being all practical! All the rest of us beach bum dreamers still vote Bora Bora, though. (But did you notice how no one's actually BEEN there?)

I completely agree. If we took a seperate honeymoon it would have been to Belize or Costa Rica.

Before I go somewhere I want to have time to research it extensively. It took so much time to plan out our trip last year to london, paris, & normandy. I wouldn't have been able to plan both the wedding & that trip. But, then not everyone likes to be as prepared as me. I just felt like it helped us get the most out of our time there & not run in to any unexpected expenses.

So I personally would not want to have the honeymoon be the dream trip. I'd rather save that for another year when I have time to really plan it right.

Kat, it kind of also depends of what you want to do, do you want to relax? or do you want to visit different sites and learn about history? If you go to Europe (I wouldn't recommend London for a honeymoon) you'll have to be on the go all the time because you'll want to see everything (Venice is stunning, but I would go to Rome and Florence). I've been to the South Pacific and it was spectacular! Bora Bora was my favorite of the islands. We stayed at Le Meridien and it was out of this world, I like the location which is on one of the Motus. Motus are a group of islands that surround the main island. Le Meridien and all of the resorts on the Motus provide water taxi transportation to the island. Also, Le Meridien is right next to the St. Regis which looks absolutely devine! They have all overwater bungalows with their own private pools.

 

I would recommend if you visit other islands besides Bora Bora, I also went to Moorea and didn't really like it. I recommend Roatonga.

 

I hope this helps, it's absolutely gorgeous there and you will have a very awesome and relaxing honeymoon.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
